New Defender's Study Bible Notes
5:8 draweth nigh. In fact, the great “Judge standeth before the door,” as it were (James 5:9, note Revelation 3:20; Mark 13:29). Even though a great majority of Christian believers in every nation are among those of whom the rich have taken unjust advantage, the Lord would advise prayerful patience rather than rebellion and retribution. He will make all things right when He comes in judgment.
