And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good.
Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. For, “Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.
For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil.
Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.
For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.
I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name's sake, and you have not grown weary.
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.
and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.
Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart.
And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.
then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.’
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.’
to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life;
But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
he will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the later rain, that you may gather in your grain and your wine and your oil.
The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory.
For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.
but Christ is faithful over God's house as a son. And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.
But you say, ‘What a weariness this is,’ and you snort at it, says the Lord of hosts. You bring what has been taken by violence or is lame or sick, and this you bring as your offering! Shall I accept that from your hand? says the Lord.
The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.
The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”
The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.’
And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him.
These all look to you, to give them their food in due season.
On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Fear not, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak.
