Hebrews 13

1Let brotherly loue continue.

2Be not forgetfull to intertaine strangers: for thereby some haue receiued Angels into their houses vnwares.

3Remember them that are in bondes, as though ye were bounde with them: and them that are in affliction, as if ye were also afflicted in the body.

4Mariage is honorable among all, and the bed vndefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will iudge.

5Let your conuersation be without couetousnesse, and be content with those things that ye haue, for he hath said,

6I will not faile thee, neither forsake thee:

7So that we may boldly say, The Lord is mine helper, neither will I feare what man can doe vnto me.

8Remember them which haue the ouersight of you, which haue declared vnto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering what hath bene the ende of their conuersation. Iesus Christ yesterday, and to day, the same also is for euer.

9Be not caried about with diuers and strange doctrines: for it is a good thing that the heart be stablished with grace, and not with meates, which haue not profited them that haue bene occupied therein.

10We haue an altar, whereof they haue no authoritie to eate, which serue in the tabernacle.

11For the bodies of those beastes whose blood is brought into the Holy place by the high Priest for sinne, are burnt without the campe.

12Therefore euen Iesus, that he might sanctifie the people with his owne blood, suffered without the gate.

13Let vs goe foorth to him therefore out of the campe, bearing his reproch.

14For here haue we no continuing citie: but we seeke one to come.

15Let vs therefore by him offer the sacrifice of prayse alwaies to God, that is, the fruite of the lippes, which confesse his Name.

16To doe good, and to distribute forget not: for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

17Obey them that haue the ouersight of you, and submit your selues: for they watche for your soules, as they that must giue accountes, that they may doe it with ioy, and not with griefe: for that is vnprofitable for you.

18Pray for vs: for we are assured that we haue a good conscience in all things, desiring to liue honestly.

19And I desire you somewhat the more earnestly, that yee so doe, that I may be restored to you more quickly.

20The God of peace that brought againe from the dead our Lord Iesus, the great shepheard of the sheepe, through the blood of the euerlasting Couenant,

21Make you perfect in all good workes, to doe his will, working in you that which is pleasant in his sight through Iesus Christ, to whom be praise for euer and euer, Amen.

22I beseeche you also, brethren, suffer the wordes of exhortation: for I haue written vnto you in fewe wordes.

23Knowe that our brother Timotheus is deliuered, with whome (if hee come shortly) I will see you.

24Salute all them that haue the ouersight of you, and all the Saintes. They of Italie salute you.

Grace be with you all, Amen.

25Written to the Hebrewes from Italie, and sent by Timotheus.
