But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us
We are hard PRESSED on every side, but NOT crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
When an evil spirit [the wolf] leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none.
Then it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order.
Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there.
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Christ.
