Deus nunca falha
may we hold fast the unwavering profession of the hope, (for faithful is He who did promise),
20 for as many as are promises of God, in him are the Yes, and in him the Amen, for glory to God through us;
21 and He who is confirming you with us into Christ, and did anoint us, is God,
22 who also sealed us, and gave the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
Happy the man who does endure temptation, because, becoming approved, he shall receive the crown of the life, which the Lord did promise to those loving Him.
in whom you also, having heard the word of the truth -- the good news of your salvation -- in whom also having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of the promise,
which is an earnest of our inheritance, to the redemption of the acquired possession, to the praise of His glory.
