The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment and wait on thy God continually.
By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.
Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
