“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. Amen”


For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
Bible, 1 Timothy 6:7 King James Version


And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
Bible, Job 121 King James Version



“Samson said, ‘Let my soul perish with the Philistines.”
Diana Coulter


“Now the house was full of men and women;
and all the lords of the Philistines were there;
and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld
while Samson made sport.
And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD,
remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee,
only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.
And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood,
and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.
And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines.
And he bowed himself with all his might;
and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein.
So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.”
Bible, Judges 16:30 King James Version
