THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

3:16Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

3:17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

8:5Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.

2 Samuel (Author Compiled by Isaiah from records of Samuel, David, Nathan, and Gad.)

7:14I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

3:1After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.

3:2And Job spake, and said,

3:3Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.

3:4Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.

3:5Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.

3:6As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.

3:7Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.

3:8Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.

3:9Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day:

3:10Because it shut not up the doors of my mother's womb, nor hid sorrow from mine eyes.

3:11Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly?

3:12Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?

3:13For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest,

3:14With kings and counsellors of the earth, which built desolate places for themselves;

3:15Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver:

3:16Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw light.

3:17There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.

3:18There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.

3:19The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master.

3:20Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;

3:21Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;

3:22Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?

3:23Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?

3:24For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters.

3:25For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.

3:26I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.

5:6Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;

5:7Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

5:17Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

5:18For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

6:1But Job answered and said,

6:2Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together!

6:3For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up.

6:4For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit: the terrors of God do set themselves in array against me.

6:5Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder?

6:6Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?

6:7The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.

6:8Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!

6:9Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!

6:10Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

6:11What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?

6:12Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?

6:13Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?

6:14To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.

6:15My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;

6:16Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid:

6:17What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.

6:18The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.

6:19The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.

6:20They were confounded because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed.

6:21For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid.

6:22Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?

6:23Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?

6:24Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

6:25How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?

6:26Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?

6:27Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend.

6:28Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie.

6:29Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it.

6:30Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?

7:2As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:

7:3So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.

7:4When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.

7:5My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.

7:6My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.

9:18He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.

12:5He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.

14:1Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

14:22But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.

16:6Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased?

16:7But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all my company.

16:8And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face.

16:9He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.

16:10They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me.

16:11God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.

16:12I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder: he hath also taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me up for his mark.

16:13His archers compass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground.

16:14He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant.

17:7Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.

17:8Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.

17:9The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.

17:10But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you.

17:11My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.

17:12They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.

17:13If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.

17:14I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.

17:15And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?

17:16They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

19:7Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.

19:8He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.

19:9He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.

19:10He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.

19:11He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.

19:12His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.

19:13He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.

19:14My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

19:15They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.

19:16I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.

19:17My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.

19:18Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.

19:19All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.

19:20My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.

23:10But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

30:15Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the wind: and my welfare passeth away as a cloud.

30:16And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me.

30:17My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my sinews take no rest.

30:18By the great force of my disease is my garment changed: it bindeth me about as the collar of my coat.

30:19He hath cast me into the mire, and I am become like dust and ashes.

33:19He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

33:20So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.

33:21His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

33:22Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

36:8And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;

36:9Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.

36:10He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.

36:11If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

36:12But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

36:15He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

6:6I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

6:7Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

18:4The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

18:5The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

18:6In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

31:9Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

31:10For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.

31:11I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.

31:12I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.

31:13For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

32:3When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.

32:4For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.

39:1I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

39:2I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.

39:3My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,

39:4LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.

42:6O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

42:7Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

55:4My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

55:5Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.

55:6And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.

55:7Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.

55:8I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

66:10For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

66:11Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

66:12Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

69:1Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

69:2I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.

69:3I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

69:20Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

73:10Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.

77:2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.

77:3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

77:4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

80:5Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.

80:6Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.

88:3For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.

88:4I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:

88:5Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.

88:6Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.

88:7Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.

88:8Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

88:9Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.

88:10Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah.

88:11Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?

88:12Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

88:13But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.

88:14LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?

88:15I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.

88:16Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.

88:17They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.

88:18Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.

89:32Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

90:10The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

102:3For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.

102:4My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.

102:5By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.

102:6I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.

102:7I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

102:8Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.

102:9For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,

102:10Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.

102:11My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.

107:4They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

107:5Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

107:10Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

107:17Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

107:18Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

107:19Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

109:22For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.

109:23I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.

109:24My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.

116:3The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

141:7Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

143:3For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.

143:4Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

3:11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

3:12For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

12:25Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.

13:12Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

14:10The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.

14:13Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.

15:13A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

15:15All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

17:3The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.

17:22A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

18:14The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

2:22For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?

2:23For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.

7:2It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.

7:3Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

7:4The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

1:6From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

24:1Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

24:2And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

24:3The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.

24:4The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

24:5The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

24:6Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

24:7The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

24:8The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.

24:9They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

24:10The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

24:11There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

24:12In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

24:13When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

24:14They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

24:15Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.

24:16From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

26:16LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.

26:17Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD.

48:10Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

Lamentations (Author Jeremiah)

1:7Jerusalem remembered in the days of her affliction and of her miseries all her pleasant things that she had in the days of old, when her people fell into the hand of the enemy, and none did help her: the adversaries saw her, and did mock at her sabbaths.

1:12Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.

3:1I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.

3:2He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light.

3:3Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day.

3:4My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones.

3:5He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail.

3:6He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old.

3:7He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.

3:8Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.

3:9He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked.

3:10He was unto me as a bear lying in wait, and as a lion in secret places.

3:11He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces: he hath made me desolate.

3:12He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow.

3:13He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.

3:14I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day.

3:15He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath made me drunken with wormwood.

3:16He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes.

3:17And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I forgat prosperity.

3:18And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the LORD:

3:19Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall.

3:20My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.

3:21This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.

3:22It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

3:23They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

3:24The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

3:25The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

3:26It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

3:27It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.

3:28He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne it upon him.

3:29He putteth his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope.

3:30He giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him: he is filled full with reproach.

3:31For the Lord will not cast off for ever:

3:32But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.

3:33For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

3:34To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth,

3:35To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High,

3:36To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.

Zechariah (Author Zechariah)

13:9And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Mark (Author John Mark)

9:49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

John (Author John)

15:2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

2 Corinthians (Author Paul)

1:8For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:

1:9But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

4:7But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

4:8We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

4:9Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

4:10Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

4:11For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

4:12So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

4:16For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

4:17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

6:4But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

6:5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

6:6By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

6:7By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

6:8By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

6:9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;

6:10As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

11:23Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

11:24Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

11:25Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

11:26In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

11:27In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

11:28Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

11:29Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?

11:30If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

Hebrews (Author Paul)

12:6For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

12:7If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

12:9Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

1 Peter (Author Peter)

5:9Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

Revelation (Author John)

3:19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
