CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Let us not be weary - Well-doing is easier in itself than ill-doing; and the danger of growing weary in the former arises only from the opposition to good in our own nature, or the outward hinderances we may meet with from a gainsaying and persecuting world.

Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
A wicked person earns deceptive wages, but the one who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.
Ship your grain across the sea; after many days you may receive a return.
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
You said, 'Woe to me! The LORD has added sorrow to my pain; I am worn out with groaning and find no rest.'
You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
