For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.
King James Bible
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
American Standard Version
For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.
Young's Literal Translation
for whoever may will to save his life, shall lose it, and whoever may lose his life for my sake shall find it,
Matthew 16:25 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For whosoever will save his life - That is, shall wish to save his life - at the expense of his conscience, and casting aside the cross, he shall lose it - the very evil he wishes to avoid shall overtake him; and he shall lose his soul into the bargain. See then how necessary it is to renounce one's self! But whatsoever a man loses in this world, for his steady attachment to Christ and his cause, he shall have amply made up to him in the eternal world.
