Even as it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For we would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning our affliction which befell (us) in Asia, that we were weighed down exceedingly, beyond our power, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
always bearing about in the body the dying of Jesus, that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our body.
But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.
For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of glorying? Are not even ye, before our Lord Jesus at his coming?
