33 partly while you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and
tribulations, and partly while you became companions of those who were
34 for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the
plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an
enduring possession for yourselves in heaven.
35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
