“Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.”
King James Version (KJV)
17:33 The sense of this and the following verses is, Yet as great as the danger will be, do not seek to save your life by violating your conscience: if you do, you will surely lose it: whereas if you should lose it for my sake, you shall be paid with life everlasting. But the most probable way of preserving it now, is to be always ready to give it up: a peculiar Providence shall then watch over you, and put a difference between you and other men.
Lu 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life. See PNT "Mt 10:39".
