New Defender's Study Bible Notes

5:16 Rejoice evermore Many think that “Jesus wept” (John 11:35) is the shortest verse in the Bible, but this verse is actually shorter in the Greek original. In a sense, the two verses complement each other. Because Jesus wept over sin and died for sin (Hebrews 5:7-9), we, as saved sinners, shall eternally rejoice in heaven.
