Romans 8:36

Romans 8:36

As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

b. NIV: As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

c. YLT: (according as it hath been written -- 'For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long, we were reckoned as sheep of slaughter,')
