Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear 1the reproach he endured.
For 2here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.
153Through him then let us continually offer up 4a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, 5the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
Do not neglect to do good and 6to share what you have, for such 7sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Obey 8your leaders and submit to them, 9for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to 10give an account. 11Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.
1812Pray 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 13that I may be restored to you the sooner.
Now 14may the God of peace 15who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, 16the great shepherd of the sheep, by 17the blood of the eternal covenant,
2118equip you with everything good that you may do his will, 19working in usa that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, 20to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
I appeal to you, brothers,b bear with my word of exhortation, for 21I have written to you briefly.
You should know that 22our brother Timothy has been released, with whom I shall see you if he comes soon.
