1 、與智慧人同行的，必得智慧；和愚昧人作伴的，必受虧損。（箴言 13:20 ）
He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
2 、人的工程若被燒了，他就要受虧損，自己卻要得救；雖然得救，乃像從火裡經過的一樣。（哥林多前書 3:15）
If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
3、如今我歡喜，不是因你們憂愁，是因你們從憂愁中生出懊悔來。你們依著神的意思憂愁，凡事就不至於因我們受虧損了。（哥林多後書 7:9 ）
Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that you sorrowed to repentance: for you were made sorry after a godly manner, that you might receive damage by us in nothing.
