Chapter 13Hebrews


1 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Forget not the love of strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. 3 Remember those in bonds, as bound with them; the ill-treated as being yourselves also in the body. 4 Let marriage be in honor among all, and the bed undefiled: for fornicators and adulterers :God will judge. 5 Let your :turn of mind be without love of money, content with what things ye have: for himself hath said, I will in nowise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee.
6 So that we boldly say,
The Lord is my helper; I will not fear:
What shall man do to me?
7 Remember those ruling over you, men that spake to you the word of :God; considering the outcome of their behavior imitate their faith. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today, and unto the ages. 9 Be not carried away by diverse and strange teachings: for it is good that the heart be established by grace; not by meats, wherein they that walked were not profited. 10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat that serve the tabernacle. 11 For the bodies of those beasts whose :blood is brought into the holies through the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. 12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people through his own :blood, suffered without the gate. 13 Let us therefore go forth unto him without the camp, bearing his :reproach. 14 For we have not here an abiding city, but we seek after the one to come. 15 Through him therefore let us offer up sacrifice of praise to :God continually, that is, the fruit of lips confessing to his :name. 16 But forget not well doing and fellowship: for with such sacrifices :God is well pleased. 17 Obey those ruling over you, and submit: for THEY watch in behalf of your :souls, as they that shall give account; that they may do this with joy, and not groaning: for this is unprofitable for you.
18 Pray for us: for we are persuaded that we have a good conscience, desiring to behave honorably in all things. 19 And I exhort the more exceedingly to do this, that I be restored to you the sooner. 20 Now the God of :peace, who brought again from the dead the great :shepherd of the sheep in blood of an eternal covenant, our :Lord Jesus, 21 perfect you in every good to do his :will, to do in us what is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom the glory unto the ages of the ages. Amen. 22 But I exhort you, brethren, bear with the word of :exhortation: for I have written you in few words. 23 Know that our :brother Timothy is set free; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.
24 Greet all that are ruling over you, and all the saints. They of :Italy greet you.
25 The grace be with you all.
