Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
now this saying, "that it was accounted to him," was not written for his sake alone,
1 Corinthians 9:9
for it is written in the law of Moses, "thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn." are oxen the objects of divine care?
1 Corinthians 10:11
All these things happened to them for examples: and are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages are come.
2 Timothy 3:16
for all divinely inspired writings are conducive to instruction, to conviction, to reformation, and the practice of virtue;
2 Peter 1:20
But you must above all consider, that no prophecy of the scripture did proceed
and not only so, but we triumph in tribulation also, knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, probation;
for we are saved but by hope: but hope supposes things not yet present; for how can a man hope for what he has now in possession?
be joyful in hope; be patient under affliction; persevere in prayer;
for God is too just to his promise not to regard your piety, and the love which you have shewn to the christian religion by the assistance ye have given to the saints, and still continue to give.
don't therefore quit that resolution you have, which will be attended with so great a reward.
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.
1 Peter 1:13
Let your minds then be duely prepar'd, be vigilant, and constantly expect the favour you will meet with at the appearance of Jesus Christ.
