A-Z: Common sayings from the Bible: Bringing nothing into the world and carrying nothing out


The idea is that one ceases to possess anything material when one is dead, just as one came into the world with nothing.


Paul probably echoes Job in this letter: 'Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD' (Job 1:21). Paul makes it an argument for being content with what we have.
