12 So then, my beloved, (A)just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own (B)salvation with (C)fear and trembling; 13 for it is (D)God who is at work in you, both to [a]desire and to work (E)for His good pleasure.

14 Do all things without (F)complaining or arguments; 15 so that you will [b]prove yourselves to be (G)blameless and innocent, (H)children of God above reproach in the midst of a (I)crooked and perverse generation, among whom you [c](J)appear as [d]lights in the world, 16 holding firmly the word of life, so that on (K)the day of Christ I can take pride because I did not (L)run in vain nor (M)labor in vain.
