Weeping may endure for a night, but joy [cometh] in the morning.
No man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation. In me ye . . . have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.–The night is far spent, the day is at hand.–[He shall be] as the light of the morning, [when] the sun riseth, [even] a morning without clouds; [as] the tender grass [springing] out of the earth by clear shining after rain.
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces.–There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.–We which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
