“Take, my brethren, the Prophets, who haue spoken in the Name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. Be patient therefore, brethren, vnto the comming of the Lord: behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, vntill hee receiue the early and latter raine. 8. Be yee also patient; stablish your hearts: for the comming of the Lorde draweth nigh. 9. Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the Iudge standeth before the doore. 10. Take, my brethren, the Prophets, who haue spoken in the Name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. 11. Beholde, wee count them happie which endure. Ye haue heard of the patience of Iob, and haue seene the end of the Lord: that the Lord is very pitifull and of tender mercie. 12. But aboue all things, my brethren, sweare not, neither by heauen, neither by the earth, neither by any other othe: but let your yea, be yea, and your nay, nay: lest yee fall into condemnation. 13. Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing Psalmes.
