Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming.1 See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is2 for the autumn and spring rains.3
You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming4 is near.5
Don't grumble against each other, brothers,6 or you will be judged. The Judge7 is standing at the door!8
