The Bible in Its Traditions

James 5:13–18

Byz V S TR Nes

13 Is anyone among you suffering

Vsad? He should pray.

Is anyone in good spirits? He should sing a song of praise.

14 Is anyone among you sick?

He should summon

Vbring in the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him,

anointing him with oil in the name of the

Sour Lord.

15 And the prayer of faith will save

Sheal the sick person,

and the

Sour Lord will raise him up.

And if has committed any sins, it

V Sthey will be forgiven him.

16 Confess, V S Nesthen, Vyour sins to one another

and pray for one another so that you may be healed.

Powerful indeed is the effective

Vpersistent prayer of a righteous person.

17 Elijah was a human, a mortal person like us,

and he prayed fervently that it would not rain V Supon the earth,

and it did not rain upon the earth for three years and six months.

18 And he prayed again, and heaven gave rain,

and the earth produced its fruit.
