Our Citizenship in Heaven

17 Brethren, (C)join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as (D)you have us for a pattern. 18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are (E)the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 (F)whose end is destruction, (G)whose god is their belly, and (H)whose glory is in their shame—(I)who set their mind on earthly things.
