But we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed in us.
who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
But whatever was gain to me, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
More than that, I count everything to be loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ
so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
