And he said to [them] all, "If anyone wants to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross every day and follow me.
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life on account of me, this person will save it.
For what is a person benefited [if he]a gains the whole world but loses or forfeits himself?
For whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of this person when he comes in his glory and the [glory]b of the Father and of the holy angels.
But I tell you truly, there are some of those standing here who will never experience death until they see the kingdom of God."
