New King James Version
Be Patient and Persevering
7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord [a]is at hand.
9 Do not [b]grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be [c]condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! 10 (A)My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and (B)patience. 11 Indeed (C)we count them blessed who (D)endure. You have heard of (E)the perseverance of Job and seen (F)the end intended by the Lord—that (G)the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.
Meeting Specific Needs(I)
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him (J)pray. Is anyone cheerful? (K)Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, (L)anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. (M)And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 [e]Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. (N)The effective, [f]fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man (O)with a nature like ours, and (P)he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed (Q)again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.
Bring Back the Erring One
19 Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone (R)turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way (S)will save [g]a soul from death and (T)cover a multitude of sins.Read full chapter
