Treasury of Scripture

Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Psalm 49:7,8
None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: …

1 Peter 1:18,19
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; …









Verse 37. - In exchange (ἀντάλλαγμα) for his life. The Greek term here means an "equivalent," "a compensation." The" life," in its largest sense and meaning, defies all comparison, surpasses all value. It has been bought and redeemed with the precious blood of Christ; therefore the whole world would be a poor price for the soul of one man.
