Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl in your miseries, which shall come upon you.  Your riches are corrupted: and your garments are motheaten.  Your gold and silver is cankered: and the rust of them shall be for a testimony against you, and shall eat your flesh like fire. You have stored up to yourselves wrath against the last days.  Behold the hire of the labourers, who have reaped down your fields, which by fraud has been kept back by you, crieth: and the cry of them hath entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.  You have feasted upon earth: and in riotousness you have nourished your hearts, in the day of slaughter.
— The Epistle of Saint James, Chapter 5
