Concluding Ethical Instructions

15 Through Him, then, let us continually lay on the altar a sacrifice of praise to God, namely, the utterance of lips that give thanks to His Name. 16 And do not forget to be kind and liberal; for with sacrifices of that sort God is greatly pleased. 17 Obey your leaders and be submissive to them. For they are keeping watch over your souls as those who will have to give account; that they may do this with joy and not with lamentation. For that would be of no advantage to you.
