James 5:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 5

Warning to the Rich.[a] Come now, you rich, weep and wail over your impending miseries.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:1–6 Continuing with the theme of the transitory character of life on earth, the author points out the impending ruin of the godless. He denounces the unjust rich, whose victims cry to heaven for judgment on their exploiters (Jas 5:4–6). The decay and corrosion of the costly garments and metals, which symbolize wealth, prove them worthless and portend the destruction of their possessors (Jas 5:2–3).
