Chapter VIII.—Persevere in hope and patience.

Let us then continually persevere in our hope, and the earnest of our righteousness, which is Jesus Christ, “who bore our sins in His own body on the tree,”384384    1 Pet. ii. 24. “who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth,”385385    1 Pet. ii. 22. but endured all things for us, that we might live in Him.386386    Comp. 1 John iv. 9. Let us then be imitators of His patience; and if we suffer387387    Comp. Acts v. 41; 1 Pet. iv. 16. for His name’s sake, let us glorify Him.388388    Some read, “we glorify Him.” For He has set us this example389389    Comp. 1 Pet. ii. 21. in Himself, and we have believed that such is the case.
