  1. Php.1:23 —From what “two things” was Paul under pressure, and what “releasing” did he desire? 

    1. JW Insider

      JW Insider

      To be or not to be. To die or not to die.

      It's a bit like Shakespeare put it, except that Paul was not suicidal and had a lot more faith in the afterlife:

      1. To be, or not to be, that is the question:
      2. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
      3. The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
      4. Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
      5. And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
      6. No more; and by a sleep to say we end
      7. The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
      8. That flesh is heir to: 'tis a consummation
      9. Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
      10. To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub:
      11. For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
      12. When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
      13. Must give us pause—there's the respect
      14. That makes calamity of so long life.
      15. For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
      16. Th'oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
      17. The pangs of dispriz'd love, the law's delay,
      18. The insolence of office, and the spurns
      19. That patient merit of th'unworthy takes,
      20. When he himself might his quietus make
      21. With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
      22. To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
      23. But that the dread of something after death,
      24. The undiscovere'd country, from whose bourn
      25. No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
      26. And makes us rather bear those ills we have
      27. Than fly to others that we know not of?
      28. Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
      29. And thus the native hue of resolution
      30. Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
      31. And enterprises of great pitch and moment
      32. With this regard their currents turn awry
      33. And lose the name of action.
