Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

James 5:2

_ _ corruptedabout to be destroyed through God’s curse on your oppression, whereby your riches are accumulated (James 5:4). Calvin thinks the sense is, Your riches perish without being of any use either to others or even to yourselves, for instance, your garments which are moth-eaten in your chests.

_ _ garments ... moth-eaten — referring to Matthew 6:19, Matthew 6:20.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on James 5:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

James 5:2

The riches of the ancients consisted much in large stores of corn, and of costly apparel.
