||And so, my most beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but even more so now in my absence: work toward your salvation with fear and trembling.
||For it is God who works in you, both so as to choose, and so as to act, in accord with his good will.
||And do everything without murmuring or hesitation.
||So may you be without blame, simple sons of God, without reproof, in the midst of a depraved and perverse nation, among whom you shine like lights in the world,
||holding to the Word of Life, until my glory in the day of Christ. For I have not run in vain, nor have I labored in vain.
||Moreover, if I am to be immolated because of the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and give thanks with all of you.
||And over this same thing, you also should rejoice and give thanks, together with me.
