Μακάριος ἀνὴρ

ὃς ὑπομένει πειρασμόν,

ὅτι δόκιμος γενόμενος λήμψεται τὸν στέφανον τῆς ζωῆς

 

“Temptation” is only one way to translate the Greek word “πειρασμόν”. Others include: Test, experiment, attempt, trial, proving. Luther, my favorite German translator of the bible, uses the word “Anfechtung”, adversity.
