16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one.(A) Therefore God is not ashamed(B) to be called their God,(C) for he has prepared a city(D) for them.
4 and into an inheritance(A) that can never perish, spoil or fade.(B) This inheritance is kept in heaven for you,(C)
5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power(A) until the coming of the salvation(B) that is ready to be revealed(C) in the last time.
