"Tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope" (Rom. 5:3, 4)—The Greek word "dokime" (here rendered "experience") derives from the same root as the adjective "dokimos," which was regularly used in describing metals or coins that were "genuine or approved" as opposed to "alloyed or counterfeit." Souter reminds us that "dokime" thus means "approvedness; hence 'character.'" Weymouth (Fifth Editon) suggests: "Afflication produces endurance; endurance, ripeness of character; and ripeness of character, hope."
