"By your endurance you will win your lives.
Young's Literal Translation
in your patience possess ye your souls.

CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
In your patience - Rather by your perseverance. The word "patience" here means constancy or perseverance in sustaining afflictions.
Possess ye your souls - Some read here the "future" instead of the "present" of the verb rendered "possess." The word "possess" means here to "preserve" or keep, and the word "souls" means "lives." This passage may be thus translated: By persevering in bearing these trials you "will" save your lives, or you will be safe; or, by persevering "preserve" your lives; that is, do not yield to these calamities, but bear up under them, for he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved. Compare Matthew 24:13.
