Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor ° forsake thee.
So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

13:5 conversation. That is, “manner of life.”

13:5 he hath said. This is quoted from Deuteronomy 31:6. In the Greek, the promise is very emphatic—“I will never, never, never leave thee….”

13:6 The Lord is my helper. This reference is from Psalm 118:6. Because of such assurances, fear and covetousness are utterly out of character for a believer.
