Exhortation To Patience

10 let the prophets, my brethren, who were commission'd by the Lord, be your examples; suffer persecution with constancy like them. 11 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. 12 Above all things, my brethren, don't swear, neither by the heaven, nor by the earth, nor use any other oath; but let your affirmation, or negation, be sincere, lest you fall under condemnation.
