Behold, we account them blessed who are patient. You have heard of the patience of Job, and you know the purpose of the Lord, that he is very merciful and compassionate.
Blessed are the persecuted for righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
and you shall be hated by all men for my sake. But he that endures to the end shall be saved.
or do you despise the riches of his goodness and forbearance and long suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to a change of mind?
but God who is rich in mercy, on account of his great love with which he loved us,??5 even when we were dead in sins he made us alive with Christ,??y grace are you saved,
but Christ as a son over his house, whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and rejoicing of the hope.
for we have been made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of the confidence firm to the end.
But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of faith to the saving of the soul.
Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when proved he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to those who love him.
In which you rejoice, though now for a little while if need be made sad by manifold trials,
