I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “my life”.

Gen 19:19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight,

lest some evil take me,
and I die:

Gen 27:46 And Rebekah said to Isaac,
I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth:

in the days of their pilgrimage.
