distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (36)

accounted as sheep for the slaughter. (37) Nay, in all these things we are

other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
John 10:28 (28) ...neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
