|For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. |
|For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. |
|For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. |
|Romans 15:4 |
