Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant
