James 5:1 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Go to

See on James 4:13.

Weep and howl (κλαύσατε ὀλολύζοντες)

Lit., weep, howling. The latter is a descriptive word, ol-ol-uz-o. Only here in New Testament, and denoting a more demonstrative and passionate expression of grief than weeping.

Miseries (ταλαιπωρίαις)

Only here and Romans 3:16. See on be afflicted, James 4:9.

That shall come upon (ἐπερχομέναις)

Present participle. More correctly, as Rev., that are coming.
