1 Corinthians 15:31 The Passion Translation (TPT)

31 My brothers and sisters, I continually face death.[a] This is as sure as my boasting of you[b] and our co-union together in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ, who gives me confidence to share my experiences with you.


  1. 1 Corinthians 15:31 Some translations render this “I die daily,” implying a dying to sin. Yet this is not in the context at all. Paul faces death day by day because of the danger of preaching the gospel in a hostile culture. He is not referring to dying to sin daily, for our death to sin took place on the cross. We died once and for all to sin. See Rom. 6:6-11; Gal. 2:20.
  2. 1 Corinthians 15:31 Or “I affirm [swear] by the act of boasting in you.” Paul uses a Greek particle that is reserved for taking an oath or swearing to the truth of a statement. This statement by Paul may contain an ellipsis that could be supplied by saying, “I swear by the confidence I have of your salvation that I am confident also of a coming resurrection.”
