The enemy couldn't touch your real treasure.
the enemy couldn't touch your REAL treasure. nothing done to you bothered you, nothing set you back. don't throw it all away now. you were sure of yourselves then. it's STILL a sure thing! stick it out, staying with God's plan so you'll be there for the promised completion. he's on the way, HE'LL SHOW UP ANY MINUTE! anyone who is with him thrives on loyal trust. YOU'RE NOT QUITTERS who lose out. you'll stay with it and SURVIVE, TRUSTING ALL THE WAY! (vv. 34-39)
