Mark 8:35-37 King James Version (KJV)

35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mark 8:35-37 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

35 For whoever wants to save his [[a]higher, spiritual, eternal] life, will lose it [the [b]lower, natural, temporal life [c]which is lived only on earth]; and whoever gives up his life [which is lived only on earth] for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it [his [d]higher, spiritual life [e]in the eternal kingdom of God].

36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life [[f]in the eternal kingdom of God]?

37 For what can a man give as an exchange ([g]a compensation, a ransom, in return) for his [blessed] life [[h]in the eternal kingdom of God]?

35 If you insist on saving your life, you will lose it. Only those who throw away their lives for my sake and for the sake of the Good News will ever know what it means to really live.

36 “And how does a man benefit if he gains the whole world and loses his soul in the process? 37 For is anything worth more than his soul?
