“When God said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” a “double negative” is used to convey the strongest sense of “never” possible in the Greek language. The Greek words “ou me” are used, which in essence means, “never never” or “never ever.” And this double negative appears twice in this one statement from the Lord. “Ou me” is used for both “never” and “nor.” In other words, God is saying, “I will never never leave you and I will never never forsake you!” The Amplified Bible brings out the strength of what God really meant:

I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]

What an awesome, amazing, wonderful and comforting promise from our our Lord, Savior and big Brother!  NOW GO AND FACE THE DAY!

I love you all very much!(NLM)
