Hebrews 10:32-34

  1. But remember the former days when you endured a harsh conflict of suffering after you were enlightened.
  2. At times you were publicly exposed to abuse and afflictions, and at other times you came to share with others who were treated in that way.
  3. For in fact you shared the sufferings of those in prison, and you accepted the confiscation of your belongings with joy
