But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in [your] mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and [be] not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, [and] which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
