    • 2010, Robert Sydney Reyes, Job & the Gospel of Suffering, page 259:
      As we have said before, God PROOFS the faith into man, i.e., he tempers that faith in his heart; he also PROVES this tempered faith in man in combat that it is reliable, trustworthy and glory-worthy; and he APPROVES a man in his victory by the faith with a prize — a crown —the crown of life.
