    I am curious about a quote from an unidentified scholar in an article in the 2/1/06 WT. I wondered if by any chance you can identify the source?

    Here is the quote:

    17 After commenting about the prophets of old, the disciple James wrote: "You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome Jehovah gave, that Jehovah is very tender in affection and merciful." (James 5:11) The Greek word here translated "endurance" has a meaning similar to that of the word James used in the preceding verse for "patience." Pointing out the difference between the two words, one scholar wrote: "The former is patience when persons abuse us, the latter is brave perseverance under things that distress us."

    WT February 1, 2006 pp. 17-21 Patience

    Thanks for your time,
