5:10.

Brothers, take for an example of suffering and of patience the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.

Look, we call those blessed who endured. You have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord, how the Lord is full of pity, and merciful.

But above all, my brothers, do not swear,

Neither by the heaven,
Nor by the earth,

Nor by any other oath :
But let
your yes

be
yes,
and

your no, no, So that you may not fall under judgment. Is any among you suffering ?

Let him pray. Is any

cheerful ?
Let him sing praise.
Is 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.
And the prayer of faith will save him who is

sick
And the Lord will raise him up.
And if he has committed sins,
It will be forgiven him.

5:16.

So confess your sins to each other,
And pray for each other, so that you may be

cured.

The prayer of a good man is of much avan in

its working Elijah was a man of like passions with us,

And he prayed earnestly that it might not

rain :

And it did not rain on the earth

For three years and six months.
And he prayed again;

And the heaven gave rain
And the earth bore her fruit.

My brothers, if any among you errs from the

truth, And some one converts him,

Let him know, That he who converts a bad man from the

error of his way Will save a soul from death, And will cover a multitude of sins.

HEBREWS.

In former times it was only partially,

And in many different ways, God spoke to our forefathers

In those through whom he revealed himself. But in these last days he has once for all

spoken to us In his Son, Whom he appointed heir of everything,

And through whom he made the worlds.

He is the reflected perfection of God,

And the imprint of the divine nature. And it is he who sustains everything

By the expression of his power. So when he had cleared men from the guilt of

sin, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on

high. And he became as much greater than the

angels As the name he inherited is of more dignity than theirs.
