|Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, |
"Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you."
|Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.|
|Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, "I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,"|
|Hebrews 13:5 |

This quotation is one of the most emphatic statements in the NT. In Greek it contains two double negatives, similar to saying in English, " I will never, ever, ever forsake you." Jesus uses the same technique to express the certainty of eternal life for believers (John 10:28).
