The Letter to the Hebrews   10: 32-39

10:32 But call to mind the former days, in which, after being enlightened, you endured a great struggle of afflictions.
10:33 And certainly, in one way, by insults and tribulations, you were made a spectacle, but in another way, you became the companions of those who were the object of such behavior.
10:34 For you even had compassion on those who were imprisoned, and you accepted with gladness being deprived of your goods, knowing that you have a better and more lasting substance.
10:35 And so, do not lose your confidence, which has a great reward.
10:36 For it is necessary for you to be patient, so that, by doing the will of God, you may receive the promise.
10:37 “For, in a little while, and somewhat longer, he who is to come will return, and he will not delay.
10:38 For my just man lives by faith. But if he were to draw himself back, he would not please my soul.”
10:39 So then, we are not sons who are drawn away to perdition, but we are sons of faith toward the securing of the soul.
