17 Brethren, (H)join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the (I)pattern you have in us. 18 For (J)many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even (K)weeping, that they are enemies of (L)the cross of Christ, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their [c](M)appetite, and whose (N)glory is in their shame, who (O)set their minds on earthly things. 20 For (P)our [d]citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly (Q)wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; 21 who will (R)transform [e]the body of our humble state into (S)conformity with [f]the (T)body of His glory, (U)by the exertion of the power that He has even to (V)subject all things to Himself.
