Beatus vir qui suffert temptationem
quia cum probatus fuerit
accipiet coronam vitae
quam repromisit Deus diligentibus se.
(James 1:12)

Blessed is the man that suffereth tentation:
for when he hath been proved
he shal recieve the crowne of life,
which God hath promised to them that love him.
(Rheims New Testament, 1581)
