Wicked rich men are to fear God's punishment (5:1-6)
We ought to be patient in afflictions, after the example of the prophets and Job (5:7-11)
To give up swearing (5:12)
To pray in adversity, to sing in prosperity (5:13-15)
To acknowledge mutually our various faults, to pray one for another (5:16-18)
