"Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand."
1 Peter 2:20
"For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God."
"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."
"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful."
"But he who endures to the end shall be saved."
"that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises."
"For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise"
"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing."
"And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope."
