1 Thessalonians 4:13
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow t as others u who have no hope.

You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD.
That at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
