Context
Misuse of Riches

1Go to now, you rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come on you. 2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3Your gold and silver is corroded; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. You have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, cries: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5You have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; you have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6You have condemned and killed the just; and he does not resist you.
