Esperar no Senhor

22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently out of a pure heart,

23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the Word of God which lives and abides forever,

24 because All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away,

25 but the Word of the Lord endures forever. Now this is the Word which by the gospel was preached to you.

1 Pedro 1:22-25

I have waited for Jehovah, my soul has waited, and in His Word I have hoped.

My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning; yea, more than those who watch for the morning.

Salmos 130:5,6

The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is longsuffering toward us, not purposing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

2 Pedro 3:9

1 Then the kingdom of Heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, and five foolish.

3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,

4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all nodded and fell asleep.

6 And at midnight there was a cry: Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!

7 Then all those virgins arose and prepared their lamps.

8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut.

11 Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us!

12 But he answered and said, Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.

13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man comes.

Mateus 25:1-13

1 I waited patiently for Jehovah, and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and secured my steps.

3 And He has put a new song in my mouth, praise to our God; many shall see it and fear, and shall trust in Jehovah.

4 Blessed is the man who makes Jehovah his trust and has not turned to the proud, nor to such as turn aside to lies.

5 O Jehovah my God, many are the wonderful works which You have done, and Your thoughts which are toward us; they cannot be recounted to You if I were to declare and speak of them, for they are more than can be numbered.

6 Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; my ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You have not asked.

7 Then I said, Lo, I come (in the volume of the Book it is written of Me):

8 I delight to do Your will, O My God, and Your Law is within My heart.

9 I have preached righteousness in the great assembly; lo, I have not restrained My lips, O Jehovah, You know.

10 I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not hidden Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great assembly.

11 Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O Jehovah; let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually keep watch over me.

12 For evils without number have encompassed me; my iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head; therefore my heart fails me.

13 Be pleased, O Jehovah, to deliver me; O Jehovah, make haste to help me!

14 Let them be ashamed and abashed together, those who seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to dishonor, those who wish me evil.

Salmos 40:1-14

Our soul waits for Jehovah; He is our help and our shield.

For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.

Let Your mercy, O Jehovah, be upon us, according as we have hoped in You.

Salmos 33:20-22

My soul, be still only before God; for my expectation is from Him.

Salmos 62:5

Trust in Jehovah with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Provérbios 3:5,6

And so Jehovah waits to be gracious to you. And therefore He is exalted, that He may have mercy on you; for Jehovah is a God of justice. Blessed are all those who wait for Him.

Isaías 30:18

but those who wait upon Jehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Isaías 40:31

1 Jehovah is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

3 Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, in this I have confidence.

4 One thing I have desired from Jehovah, that I will seek after: That I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Jehovah, and to inquire in His temple.

5 For in the time of evil He shall hide me in His den, in the secrecy of His tent He shall hide me; He shall lift me up upon a rock.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; and I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tent. I will sing; yea, I will make music unto Jehovah.

7 Hear, O Jehovah, when I cry out with my voice, and have mercy upon me and answer me.

8 When You say, Seek My face, my heart has said unto You, Your face, O Jehovah, I will seek.

9 Hide not Your face from me; turn not Your servant away in anger. You have been my help; do not leave me, nor forsake me, O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then Jehovah will gather me up.

11 Teach me Your way, O Jehovah, and lead me in a plain path, because of my enemies.

12 Do not deliver me over to the will of my enemies; for false witnesses have risen up against me, and such as breathe out violence.

13 I would have fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of Jehovah in the land of the living.

14 Wait upon Jehovah; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, upon Jehovah!

Salmos 27:1-14

And not only that, but we also exult in afflictions, knowing that affliction produces perseverance;

and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope.

Romanos 5:3,4

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.

You also be patient. Make your hearts firm, for the coming of the Lord draws near.

Tiago 5:7,8

Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the endurance of Job and seen the outcome brought about by the Lord; that the Lord is very kind and merciful.

Tiago 5:11

I would have fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of Jehovah in the land of the living.

Wait upon Jehovah; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, upon Jehovah!

Salmos 27:13,14

Wait upon Jehovah; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, upon Jehovah!

strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joy;

Wait upon Jehovah and keep His way, and He will lift you up to inherit the earth; when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
