bible_0_0

9.  Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

10.  Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

11.  Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and the tender mercy,

12.  But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither ther by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

9.  Don’t grumble about each other, brothers. Are you yourselves above criticism? For see! the great Judge is coming. He is almost here. [Let him do whatever criticizing must be done].

10.  For examples of patience in suffering, look at the Lord’s prophets.

11. We know how happy they are now because they stayed true to him then, even though they suffered greatly for it. Job is an example of a man who continued to trust the Lord in sorrow: from his experiences we can see how the Lord’s plan finally ended in good, for he is full of tenderness and mercy.

12. But most of all, dear brother, do not swear either by heaven or earth or anything else; just say a simple yes or no so that you will not sin and be condemned for it.
