[He that is] slow to wrath [is] of great understanding.
The LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering.–The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Be ye . . . followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love.–The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.–This [is] thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory [is it], if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer [for it], ye take it patiently, this [is] acceptable with God. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ . . . suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps. . . . who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously.
Be ye angry, and sin not.
