10 Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, wthat you may be tested, and for xten days yyou will have tribulation. zBe faithful aunto death, and I will give you bthe crown of life.


11 gI am coming soon. hHold fast what you have, so that no one may seize iyour crown.


25 Every uathlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we van imperishable.


Henceforth there is ylaid up for me zthe crown of righteousness, which the Lord, athe righteous judge, will award to me on bthat day, and not only to me but also to all cwho have loved his appearing.


And when tthe chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the uunfading vcrown of glory.
