16 But for that very reason I received mercy, so that in me, as the worst sinner,[a] the Messiah[b] Jesus might demonstrate all of his patience as an example for those who would believe in him for eternal life. 17 Now to the King Eternal—the immortal, invisible, and only God—be honor and glory forever and ever! Amen.
