Passage: Jacob 2:9 - Jacob 2:19

9 Wherefore, it burdeneth my soul that I should be constrained, because of the strict commandment which I have received from God, to admonish you according to your crimes, to enlarge the wounds of those which are already wounded, instead of consoling and healing their wounds;
10 And those which have not been wounded, instead of feasting upon the pleasing word of God, have daggers placed to pierce their souls and wound their delicate minds;
11 But notwithstanding the greatness of the task, I must do according to the strict commands of God and tell you concerning your wickedness and abominations in the presence of the pure in heart and the broken heart and under the glance of the piercing eye of the Almighty God;
12 Wherefore, I must tell you the truth, according to the plainness of the word of God.
13 For behold, as I inquired of the Lord, thus came the word unto me, saying: "Jacob, get thou up into the temple on the morrow and declare the word which I shall give thee unto this people."
14 And now behold, my brethren, this is the word which I declare unto you: That many of you have begun to search for gold and for silver and all manner of precious ores in the which this land, which is a Land of Promise unto you and to your seed, doth abound most plentifully;
15 And the hand of providence hath smiled upon you most pleasingly, that you have obtained many riches;
16 And because that some of you have obtained more abundantly than that of your brethren, Ye are lifted up in the pride of your hearts and wear stiff necks and high heads, because of the costliness of your apparel, And persecute your brethren, because that ye suppose that ye are better than they.
17 And now my brethren, do ye suppose that God justifieth you in this thing? Behold, I say unto you, Nay;
18 But He condemneth you; And if ye persist in these things, His judgments must speedily come unto you.
19 O that He would show you that He can pierce you and with one glance of His eye He can smite you to the dust!
