15 (A)Through him then let us continually offer up (B)a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, (C)the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. 16 Do not neglect to do good and (D)to share what you have, for such (E)sacrifices are pleasing to God.

17 Obey (F)your leaders and submit to them, (G)for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to (H)give an account. (I)Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

18 (J)Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a clear conscience, desiring to act honorably in all things. 19 I urge you the more earnestly to do this in order (K)that I may be restored to you the sooner.


20 Now (L)may the God of peace (M)who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, (N)the great shepherd of the sheep, by (O)the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 (P)equip you with everything good that you may do his will, (Q)working in us[a] that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, (R)to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Final Greetings

22 I appeal to you, brothers,[b] bear with my word of exhortation, for (S)I have written to you briefly. 23 You should know that (T)our brother Timothy has been released, with whom I shall see you if he comes soon. 24 Greet all (U)your leaders and all the saints. Those who come from Italy send you greetings. 25 (V)Grace be with all of you.
