So Jesus also 1suffered 2outside the gate in order to sanctify the people 3through his own blood.
Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear 4the reproach he endured.
For 5here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.
156Through him then let us continually offer up 7a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, 8the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
Do not neglect to do good and 9to share what you have, for such 10sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Obey 11your leaders and submit to them, 12for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to 13give an account. 14Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.
1815Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a clear conscience, desiring to act honorably in all things.
I urge you the more earnestly to do this in order 16that I may be restored to you the sooner.
Now 17may the God of peace 18who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, 19the great shepherd of the sheep, by 20the blood of the eternal covenant,
2121equip you with everything good that you may do his will, 22working in usa that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, 23to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
