and hope makes not ashamed; because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the holy Spirit, Who was given to us.
For the earnest longing of the creation is waiting for the revelation of the sons of God.
but, if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this name.
Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour. But for this cause came I to this hour.
Now this He spake, signifying by what manner of death he would glorify God. And, having spoken this, He saith to him, "Follow Me."
But I make not my soul of any value as dear to myself, so that I may accomplish my course, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to fully testify the Gospel of the grace of God.
Then Paul answered, "What are ye doing, weeping and crushing my heart? For I am ready, not only to be bound, but to die at Jerusalem, for the name of the Lord Jesus."
neither present your members to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God, as alive from the dead, and your members to God as instruments of righteousness.
I speak after human fashion because of the weakness of your flesh; for, as ye presented your members subservient to uncleanness, and to iniquity unto iniquity; so now present your members subservient to righteousness unto holiness.
as it has been written, "Behold, I lay in Zion a Stone of stumbling, and a Rock of offense; and he that believes on Him shall not be put to shame."

But thanks be to God, Who always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest through us the savor of His knowledge in every place;
always bearing about in the body the dying of Jesus, that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our body.

For, if in anything I have gloried to him on your behalf, I was not made ashamed; but, as we spake all things to you in truth, so also our glorying before Titus was found to be truth.
For, even if I glory somewhat more abundantly concerning our authority??hich the Lord gave for building you up, and not for tearing you down?? shall not be put to shame;
and on my behalf that utterance may be given to me, in opening my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the Gospel,
but I am constrained by the two; having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for it is far better;
But even if I am offered as a libation upon the sacrifice and ministry of your faith, I rejoice, and I rejoice with you all;
Now I rejoice in my sufferings in your behalf, and fill up in turn the deficiencies of the tribulations of Christ in my flesh for the sake of His body, which is the assembly;
And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved entire, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For I am already being offered, and the time of my departure has arrived.
Wherefore, I shall be always ready to remind you of these things, though ye know them, and have become confirmed in the present truth.
