But remember1the formerdays, awhen , after being 2enlightened, you endured a great3conflict of sufferings,
33partly by being 4made a publicspectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming5sharers with those who were sotreated.
For you 6showedsympathy to the prisoners and accepted7joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves8a betterpossession and a lasting one.
35Therefore, do not throwaway your 9confidence, whichhas a great10reward.
For you haveneed of 11endurance, so that when you have 12done the will of God, you may 13receivebwhat was promised.
3714FOR YET IN A VERYLITTLEWHILE, 15HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME, AND WILL NOT DELAY.
3816BUT MY RIGHTEOUSONE SHALL LIVE BY FAITH; AND IF HE SHRINKSBACK, MY SOULHASNOPLEASURE IN HIM.
But cwe are not of those who shrinkback to destruction, but of those who have faith to the dpreserving of the soul.
