Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
»O death, where is your victory?O death, where is your sting?«
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the worldour faith.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
