Concluding Ethical Instructions

15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise continually to God, that is, the fruit of the lips confessing his name. 16 But of doing good and communicating of your substance be not forgetful, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 17 Obey your leaders, and be submissive; for they watch over your souls as those that shall give account; that they may do this with joy, and not groaning, for this would be unprofitable for you.
