Matthew 11:2-4 New Living Translation (NLT)

Genesis 32:24-28

So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”

But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”

The man asked him, “What is your name?”

“Jacob,” he answered.

Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”

Romans 5

"We glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."

The KJV translates Strong's G2347 in the following manner: tribulation (21x), affliction (17x), trouble (3x), anguish (1x), persecution (1x), burdened (1x), to be afflicted (with G1519) (1x).

Psalm 119:76 (KJV):

Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.

Speaking of the Incarnation, Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 9:15:

"Thanks be to God for His * indescribable gift!" (NASB)

* ἀνεκδιήγητος -- A New Testament Greek word that appears only ONCE in scripture, this verse.
