But he who endures to the end, he will be saved.
Love is longsuffering, love is kind, is not jealous, love does not boast, is not conceited,
does not behave unbecomingly, does not seek her own interest, is not irritable, does not count up her wrongs,
Do not forget this one thing, beloved, that one day with the Lord is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like one day.
But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might show all of his long-suffering for an example for those who are to believe in him and gain life eternal.
with all modesty and gentleness, being slow to anger, bearing with one another in love,
proclaim the message, be at it in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, encourage, with all patience in teaching.
May the God of patience and encouragement grant to you to have harmony with one another, in the manner of Christ Jesus,
Let us not grow discouraged in doing what is noble, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow faint.
rejoicing in hope, patient in trial, constant in prayer,
Watch, therefore, for you do not know what day your Master is coming.
The Lord is not slow about what he has promised, as some think of slowness, but is long-suffering toward us, wishing not to have any perish but to have all come to a change of heart.
I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may take your crown.
Put on, then, as the chosen of God, holy and beloved, sympathies, compassions, kindness, humility, gentleness, slowness to anger,
But if we hope for what we do not see, we patiently wait for it.
