33 Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.

Read Luke 17:33 Using Other Translations

Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it.
If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it.
