Hebrews 13:16-18 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
16 To do good and to distribute to the poor, do not forget. For with such sacrifices, God is pleased.
17 Obey those who have the oversight of you, and submit yourselves to them, for they watch for your souls even as those who must give accounts. Let them do it with joy, and not with grief. For that is an unprofitable thing for you.
18 Pray for us. We have confidence, because we have a good conscience in all things, and desire to live righteously.
