For he says, "At the acceptable time I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." Behold, now [is] the acceptable time; behold, now [is] the day of salvation!

in beatings, in prisons, in disturbances, in troubles, in sleepless nights, in going hungry,
in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in love without hypocrisy,
