Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming.
Come near to God and he will come near to you.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?
Believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism.
But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
Blessed is the one who endures trials, because when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life.
