Previous Verse


But you, proceed until the end, for you will rest and stand

for your inheritance at the final days.


But you, keep moving forward until the end, for you will not see all these things with your own eyes, rather you will die, and then

you will be raised to your feet again so you can stand before God to receive your inheritance at the final judgment.



“stand” has a double meaning here. Because it is preceded by “rest,” which means “death” in this context, we know that “stand” means to be raised from the sleep of death. Since it is followed by a reference to the final judgment, we know that “stand” also points to the fact that we must all stand before God to receive punishment or reward based on how we lived and how we responded to Jesus.
