Passage: James 5:12-20 (RSV)

James 5

12But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath, but let your yes be yes and your no be no, that you may not fall under condemnation.
13Is any one among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise.
14Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;
15and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
16Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects.
17Eli'jah was a man of like nature with ourselves and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth.
18Then he prayed again and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth its fruit.
19My brethren, if any one among you wanders from the truth and some one brings him back,
20let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
