long-suffering

patiently enduring troubles or difficulties
—The long-suffering workers finally got a raise after six years.

Paul describes two ways to live: One is following one’s sinful desires. The other is following God’s Spirit. He writes that God will produce good things in those who live by the Spirit:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience (longsuffering), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22,23)
