1Then shall the righteous man stand in great boldness before the face of such as have afflicted him, and made no account of his labours. 2When they see it, they shall be troubled with terrible fear, and shall be amazed at the strangeness of his salvation, so far beyond all that they looked for. 3And they repenting and groaning for anguish of spirit shall say within themselves, This was he, whom we had sometimes in derision, and a proverb of reproach:4We fools accounted his life madness, and his end to be without honour: 5How is he numbered among the children of God, and his lot is among the saints! 6Therefore have we erred from the way of truth, and the light of righteousness hath not shined unto us, and the sun of righteousness rose not upon us.
And they repenting, and groning for anguish of spirit, shall say within themselues, This was he whom wee had sometimes in derision, and a prouerbe of reproch. - King James Version (1611) - View 1611 Bible Scan
