2 Corinthians 1:9-10; 2 Corinthians 4:11; 2 Corinthians 6:9; Romans 8:36; 1 Corinthians 15:30-32

Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us nrely not on ourselves obut on God pwho raises the dead. 10 qHe delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. rOn him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.


11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.


as unknown, and oyet well known; pas dying, and behold, we live; qas punished, and yet not killed;


36 As it is written,

wFor your sake xwe are being killed all the day long;

we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.


30 Why are we tin danger every hour? 31 I protest, brothers, by umy pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, vI die every day! 32 What do I gain if, humanly speaking, wI fought with beasts at Ephesus? If the dead are not raised, xLet us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.
