2 Esdras 8:48

48 Yet I am very pleased

2 Esdras 8:48 In-Context

46 He answered, "The present is for those who live now, and the future for those who are to come.
47 You are certainly not able to love what I have created more than I do. Never again consider yourself among the unrighteous, as you have done so often.
48 Yet I am very pleased
49 that you have shown proper humility and not boasted by thinking of yourself as righteous.
50 The people of this world who have lived their lives in pride and arrogance will suffer many things in the last days.
