SAM the resurrection and the life. saith the Lord: he that
believeth in me. though he were dead. yet shall he live: and
whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall never die.
I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at
the latter day upon the earth; and though this body be de-
stroyed, yet shall I see God: whom I shall see for myself, and
mine eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger.
We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we
can carry nothing out. The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken
away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
