16 Therefore, (A)confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, (B)that you may be healed. (C)The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.[a] 17 Elijah was a man (D)with a nature like ours, and (E)he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for (F)three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18 (G)Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.

19 My brothers, (H)if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone (I)brings him back, 20 let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering (J)will save his soul from death and (K)will cover a multitude of sins.
