2 Corinthians 10:1
By the humility and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you--I, Paul, who am "timid" when face to face with you, but "bold" toward you when away!
For, "In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay."
You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near.
