See also Deuteronomy 21:15-17; and Bishop Pearce on this place. See also the notes on Matthew 10:37 (note).

Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said:
Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
