Be Patient and Persevering

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. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord [a]is at hand.

Do not [b]grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be [c]condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! 10 (A)My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and (B)patience. 11 Indeed (C)we count them blessed who (D)endure. You have heard of (E)the perseverance of Job and seen (F)the end intended by the Lord—that (G)the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.
