We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body

2 Corinthians 4:7-12

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death is working in us, but life in you.



We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed.
We are pressured in every way, hedged in, but not crushed.

We are perplexed, but not in despair.
We are perplexed, unsure of finding a way out, but not driven to despair.

We are persecuted, but not abandoned.
We are hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted to stand alone.

We are struck down, but not destroyed.
We are struck down, but never destroyed.

We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
We always carrying around in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the resurrection life of Jesus also may be shown in our body.
