Warning to the rich people (chapter 5)

James turned to the rich Jewish Christians.  They were to weep and wail because miseries were coming to them.  Their riches would rot.  Their clothes would be moth-eaten.  Their gold and silver would rust.  Their flesh would be eaten like fire.  They had laid up their treasure for their last days retirement.  However, they had not paid the wages of the laborers who mowed their fields.  They defrauded their workers, but the cries of these harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord.  They have lived in luxury and pleasure.  They have been fattened for the day of slaughter.  They have condemned and murdered the righteous ones who did not resist.  Have you been fair to those who worked for you?
