1 Thessalonians 3:3
that no one should be moved in these tribulations, for you know that we are appointed for this.
2 Kings 6:33
And while he yet talked with them, behold, the messenger came down unto him; and he said, Behold, this evil is of the LORD; for what should I wait for the LORD any longer?
For the iniquity does not come forth out of the dust; neither does chastisement spring up out of the ground;
Behold, blessed is the man whom God chastens; therefore, do not despise not the correction of the Almighty.
Thou didst bring us into the net; thou didst lay affliction upon our loins.
Shall the shofar be blown in the city and the people not be afraid? Shall there be any evil in the city which the LORD has not done?
The LORD's voice cries out unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and he who has established it.
And know in thine heart, that as a man chastens his son, so the LORD thy God chastens thee.
For the arrows of the Almighty are within me; my spirit drinks of the poison; and terrors of God combat me.
I was prosperous, but he has broken me asunder; he has taken me by my neck and shaken me to pieces and set me up for his mark.
Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes by death; yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down.
For thou, O God, hast proved us; thou hast refined us as silver is refined.
