Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
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.
