The Letter of 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.
