An Epistle to For the Rich and The Reds, (Letter of James, Ch 5) Andrew Taylor, Sep 28, 09



Last Judgment, by Raphael Coxcie (1540-1616)












James
Chapter 5

1
1 Come now, you rich, weep and wail over your coming miseries.
2
Your wealth has rotted away, your clothes have become moth-eaten,
3
your gold and silver have corroded, and that corrosion will be a testimony against you; it will devour your flesh like a fire. You have stored up treasure for the last days.
4
Behold, the wages you defrauded from the workers who harvested your fields are crying aloud, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
5
You have lived on earth in luxury and pleasure; you have fattened your hearts for the day of slaughter.
6
You have condemned; you have murdered the righteous one; he offers you no resistance.
