    2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

    Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13b-14

    2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

    "At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship 21 and said:

    "Naked I came from my mother's womb,

    and naked I will depart. [c]

    The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away;

    may the name of the LORD be praised."

    ---Job 1, verse 22

    Actually the entire (small) Old Testament Book of Job is a good lesson in overcoming hardships in life.

    I wish your brother success in his studies.

    One of my personal favorites, Romans 8:28. Here it is in an average translation:

    "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose."

    Matthew 5
    43"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    Kick in the shins is one thing - spite quite another.

    Instead of what you wrote about this particular Jew, would you as readily say "Throw the bastard into the gas chamber" about certain other Jews?

    This is a good one, but from the New Testament apocrypha:

    Peter answered and spoke concerning these same things. He questioned them about the Saviour: Did He really speak privately with a woman and not openly to us? Are we to turn about and all listen to her? Did He prefer her to us? Then Mary wept and said to Peter, My brother Peter, what do you think? Do you think that I have thought this up myself in my heart, or that I am lying about the Saviour?
    Levi answered and said to Peter, Peter you have always been hot tempered. Now I see you contending against the woman like the adversaries. But if the Saviour made her worthy, who are you indeed to reject her? Surely the Saviour knows her very well.

    The Apocalypse of John, Revelation "6-8 ("And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth"😉.
