Galatians 6:9

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Read Chapter 6

Cornelius a Lapide

AD 1637
In due season we shall reap if we faint not. The "due season" is the Day of Judgment. If we are not tired here of doing well, we shall attain that perfect peace where fatigue cannot come.

Gaius Marius Victorinus

AD 400
It is not enough that we do good; for our goodness will not be recognized straight away by God if we do good, but only if we “do not grow weary in doing good.” Many begin, many in a way persevere, yet later they give up, either tired or led astray.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849

For he that sows unto his own flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows unto the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap eternal life. As in the case of seeds, one who sows pulse cannot reap grain, for what is sown and what is reaped must both be of one kind, so is it in actions, he that plants in the flesh, wantonness, drunkenness, or inordinate desire, shall reap the fruits of these things. And what are these fruits? Punishment, retribution, shame, derision, destruction. For of sumptuous tables and viands the end is no other than destruction; for they both perish themselves, and destroy the body too. But the fruit of the Spirit is of a nature not similar but contrary in all respects to these. For consider; have you sown almsgiving? The treasures of heaven and eternal glory await you: ...

Tertullian of Carthage

AD 220
This. "Let us not be weary in well-doing; ". and of life. But "in due time we shall reap; "

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
