"But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;" {Hbr 10:32} + "Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction." {Job 36:21} + "For a day in thy courts [is] better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness." {Psa 84:10} + "Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ... Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." {Mtt 5:10-12} + "Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended." {Mtt 13:21} + "And seeing one [of them] suffer wrong, he defended [him], and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian: ... For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not." {Act 7:24-25} + "Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. ... But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God." {Act 20:23-24} + "And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;" {Rom 5:3} + "And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together. ... For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us." {Rom 8:17-18} + "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." {Rom 8:35-39} + "Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." {2Co 5:17} + "Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:" {Col 1:24} + "We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; ... Seeing [it is] a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;" {2Th 1:3-6} + "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;" {2Tm 1:8} + "Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. ... Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory." {2Tm 2:3-10} + "Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of [them] all the Lord delivered me. ... Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." {2Tm 3:11-12} + "For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God." {Jms 1:20} + "Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: ... That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:" {1Pe 1:6-7} + "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: ... Yet if [any man suffer] as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf." {1Pe 4:12-16}
the people:
"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God." {Hbr 4:9} + "The princes of the people are gathered together, [even] the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth [belong] unto God: he is greatly exalted." {Psa 47:9} + "Which in time past [were] not a people, but [are] now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy." {1Pe 2:10}
the pleasures:
"That the triumphing of the wicked [is] short, and the joy of the hypocrite [but] for a moment?" {Job 20:5} + "They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance. ... They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave." {Job 21:11-13} + "Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction. ... As a dream when [one] awaketh; [so], O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image." {Psa 73:18-20} + "My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me." {Isa 21:4} + "Therefore hear now this, [thou that art] given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I [am], and none else beside me; I shall not sit [as] a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: ... But these two [things] shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, [and] for the great abundance of thine enchantments." {Isa 47:8-9} + "And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, [and] be merry. ... But God said unto him, [Thou] fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?" {Lke 12:19-20} + "But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented." {Lke 16:25} + "Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter." {Jms 5:5} + "How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow." {Rev 18:7}
