For the law brings wrath, because where there is no law there is no transgression 1 either.
You will be enriched in every way so that you may be generous on every occasion, 1 which is producing through us thanksgiving to God,
because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
Not 1 only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,
For our momentary, light suffering 1 is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison
For sadness as intended by God produces a repentance that leads to salvation, leaving no regret, but worldly sadness brings about death.
