35  Wer will uns scheiden von der Liebe Gottes, Trübsal und Angst oder Verfolgung,oder Hunger, oder Blöße,
oder Gefährlichkeit, oder Schwerdt?
38  Denn ich bin gewiss, daß weder Tod noch Leben, weder Engel noch Fürstentum noch Gewalt,
weder Gegenwärtiges noch Zukünftiges,
39  weder Hohes noch Tiefes noch keine andre Creatur mag uns scheiden von der Liebe Gottes,
die in Christo Jesu ist, unserem Herren. Amen.

English.png English translation

35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness,
or peril, or sword?
38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
39  nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
