  [ Edit This Grammar Entry ]
耐える = to put up with, be able bear. 
Ref # Kanzen Master Level 1 - p67 - no.64 
While the verb 耐える as a piece of vocabulary means being able to withstand / endure, the grammar phrase にたえる means to deserve, be worthy of, to have value in... にたえる is completely different from 耐える!
Customarily used with a set number of words such as 市販、鑑賞、読む、見る、聞く、批判、評価 (worthy of being sold, admired, read, seen, heard, criticism/comment, evaluation)
