James 1:9-11


9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.


10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower.


11 For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In  the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.


James 5:1-6

1 Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you.


Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.


3 Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.


4 Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.


5 You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.


6 You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.
