So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:
2 Corinthians 7:14
so that I am not ashamed of the commendations I have formerly given you to him; but as I have always preached the truth to you, so in my commendation to Titus, I have said nothing but truth of you.
2 Corinthians 9:2
for I know your generous propensity, and I mention'd it with applause to the Macedonians, that Achaia was ready a year ago; so that your zeal has influenc'd many others.
1 Thessalonians 2:19
for what can be our hope, or joy, what can crown our pretensions, unless it be you, when we shall appear before the Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
2 Thessalonians 3:5
may the Lord qualify your hearts with divine affection, and a patient expectation of Jesus Christ.
who by patient continuance in well doing, seek for glory, honour, and immortality;
and not only so, but we triumph in tribulation also, knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, probation;
but if we hope for what is yet to come, our patience does necessarily intervene.
be joyful in hope; be patient under affliction; persevere in prayer;
1 Thessalonians 1:3
never forgetting the effects of your faith, your charitable offices, and the constancy of your hope in our Lord Jesus Christ; of which God is our witness.
1 Thessalonians 3:2
a minister of God, and our collegue in preaching the gospel of Christ, that by establishing you in the faith, and by his exhortations,
and after he had patiently waited, he obtained what was promised.
for it is necessary you should persevere, that after having perform'd what God has commanded, you may receive what he has promised.
Wherefore, since we are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every incumbrance, and the sin which does so easily embarrass us, and let us pursue with constancy the course that is proposed to us:
that the bringing your faith to the test, produces constancy.
As for you, my brethren, bear your sufferings with constancy, till the advent of the Lord. the farmer, from the prospect of a golden crop, patiently expects the showers of the spring and the autumn.
2 Peter 1:6
to knowledge, temperance: to temperance, patience: to patience, piety:
here is the patience of the saints, who keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 2:14
for, my brethren, you have followed the example of the christian churches in Judea; by having suffer'd the same persecutions from your own nation, as the churches have suffer'd from the Jews,
1 Thessalonians 3:3
none of you might be stagger'd by these persecutions: for you know that we are destin'd to suffer.
we pronounce those happy, who have so endur'd. you have heard of the constancy of Job, you know with what success he was crown'd by the Lord, who is all mercy and compassion.
