James 5:8-9

Context
5:8 You also be patient and strengthen your hearts, for the Lord’s return is near. 5:9 Do not grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, 1  so that you may not be judged. See, the judge stands before the gates! 2 

1 tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:2.

2 sn The term gates is used metaphorically here. The physical referent would be the entrances to the city, but the author uses the term to emphasize the imminence of the judge’s approach.
