Yea, doubtless, I count all things but loss, for the excellency
of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord : for whom I
have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but
dung, that I may win Christ-Phil, iii. 8. (xii. 15.
And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you.—2 Cor.
For he that winneth souls is wise.Prov. xi. 30.

firmament : and they that turn many to righteousness, as
the stars, forever and ever.-Dan. xii. 3,
