Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for he will pluck my feet out of the net.
But for you, O Lord, do I wait; it is you, O Lord my God, who will answer.
For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
So you, by the help of your God, return, hold fast to love and justice, and wait continually for your God.
