|Bible in Basic English (BBE)
||New International Version (NIV)
25 Feeling that it was better to undergo pain with the people of God, than for a short time to have a taste of the pleasures of sin;
25 He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time.
