Texts

(1a) Mark 8:36

For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life?



“τί γὰρ ὠφελεῖ ἄνθρωπον κερδῆσαι τὸν κόσμον ὅλον καὶ ζημιωθῆναι τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ;” (Mark 8:36 GNT-T)


= Matt 16:26a

what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life?



“τί γὰρ ὠφεληθήσεται ἄνθρωπος ἐὰν τὸν κόσμον ὅλον κερδήσῃ τὴν δὲ ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ζημιωθῇ; ἢ τί δώσει ἄνθρωπος ἀντάλλαγμα τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ;” (Matthew 16:26 GNT-T)


= Luke 9:25

does it profit them if they gain the whole world, but lose or forfeit themselves?



“τί γὰρ ὠφελεῖται ἄνθρωπος κερδήσας τὸν κόσμον ὅλον ἑαυτὸν δὲ ἀπολέσας ἢ ζημιωθείς;” (Luke 9:25 GNT-T)




(1b) 2Clem 6:2

And the Lord says:---No servant can serve two masters. If we desire to serve both God and Mammon it is unprofitable to us, 2For what is the advantage if a man gains the whole world but loses his soul? 3Now the world that is, and the world to come, are two enemies. 4This world speaks of adultery, and corruption, and love of money, and deceit, but that world bids these things farewell. 5We cannot then be the friends of both; but we must bid farewell to this world, to consort with that which is to come. 6We reckon then that it is better to hate the things which are here, for they are little, and short-lived, and corruptible, but to love the things which are there, the good things which are incorruptible.
