“And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:9 Honourably - For courage, and for fervent piety. She recordsthis, that it might be a memorandum to herself, to be thankful to God aslong as she lived, for bringing her through that sorrow: and a memorandumto him, that she bore him into a vale of tears, in which he might expectfew days and full of trouble. And the sorrow in his name might serve toput a seriousness upon his spirit.
