James 5: 1-6

5:1 Act now, you who are wealthy! Weep and wail in your miseries, which will soon come upon you!
5:2 Your riches have been corrupted, and your garments have been eaten by moths.
5:3 Your gold and silver have rusted, and their rust will be a testimony against you, and it will eat away at your flesh like fire. You have stored up wrath for yourselves unto the last days.
5:4 Consider the pay of the workers who reaped your fields: it has been misappropriated by you; it cries out. And their cry has entered into the ears of the Lord of hosts.
5:5 You have feasted upon the earth, and you have nourished your hearts with luxuries, unto the day of slaughter.
5:6 You led away and killed the Just One, and he did not resist you.

Mark 9: 41- 49

9:41 And whoever will have scandalized one of these little ones who believe in me: it would be better for him if a great millstone were placed around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.
9:42 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off: it is better for you to enter into life disabled, than having two hands to go into Hell, into the unquenchable fire,
9:43 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not extinguished.
9:44 But if your foot causes you to sin, chop it off: it is better for you to enter into eternal life lame, than having two feet to be cast into the Hell of unquenchable fire,
9:45 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not extinguished.
9:46 But if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out: it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into the Hell of fire,
9:47 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not extinguished.
9:48 For all shall be salted with fire, and every victim shall be salted with salt.
9:49 Salt is good: but if the salt has become bland, with what will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace among yourselves.”
