1 Come now, rich ones, weep, crying aloud over the hardships coming upon you!
2 Your riches have rotted, and your garments have become moth-eaten.
3 Your gold and silver have become rusty, and their rust shall be a witness against you and shall eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days.
4 See, the wages of the workmen who mowed your fields, which you kept back, cry out. And the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 of hosts.
5 You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury, you have fattened your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
6 You have condemned, you have murdered the righteous – he does not resist you.
7 So, brothers, be patient until the coming of the Aḏon. See, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.
8 You too, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Aḏon has drawn near.
9 Do not grumble against each other, brothers, lest you be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the door!
10 My brothers, as an example of suffering and patience, take the neḇi’im, who spoke in the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
11 See, we call those baruḵ who endure. You have heard of the endurance of lyoḇ and saw the purpose of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that He is very sympathetic and compassionate.
12 But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by the shamayim or by the earth or with any other oath. But let your Yes be Yes, and your No, No, lest you fall into judgment.
13 Is any of you suffering evil? Let him pray. Is anyone in good spirits? Let him sing tehillim.
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, having anointed him with oil in the Name of the Aḏon.
15 And the prayer of the belief shall save the sick, and the Aḏon shall raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he shall be forgiven.
16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, so that you are healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous one accomplishes much.
17 Ĕliyahu was a man with feelings like us, and 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 again, and the shamayim gave rain, and the land brought forth its fruit.
19 Brothers, if anyone among you goes astray from the truth, and someone turns him back,
20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the straying of His Way shall save a ḥai from death and cover a great number of sins.
