Life and favour
behold now, thy servant has found favour in thine eyes, and thou hast magnified thy goodness, which thou hast shewn to me in preserving my soul alive; but I cannot escape to the mountain, lest calamity lay hold on me, that I die.
For this cause I say unto you, Do not be careful about your life, what ye should eat and what ye should drink; nor for your body what ye should put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment?
nor is served by men's hands as needing something, himself giving to all life and breath and all things;
The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
