Hebrews 13

Let love for the brethren dwell among you. And forget not kindness to strangers; for thereby some have been privileged to entertain angels, unawares. And remember those in bonds, as if ye were bound with them: and recollect those in affliction, as being yourselves clothed in flesh. Marriage is honorable in all; and their bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers, God will judge. Let not your mind love money; but let what ye have, satisfy you. For the Lord himself hath said, I will never leave thee, nor slacken the hand towards thee. And it belongeth to us, to say confidently, My Lord is my aider, I will not fear. What can man do to me? Remember your guides, who have spoken to you godly discourse ; examine the issue of their course, and imitate their faith. Jesus the Messiah is the same, yesterday, to-day, and for ever. Be not led away by strange and variable doctrines. For it is a good thing, that we strengthen our hearts with grace, and not with meats; for those have not been benefited, who walked in them. 10 And we have an altar, of which they who minister in the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For the flesh of those animals, whose blood the high priest brought into the sanctuary for sins, was burned without the camp. 12 For this reason, Jesus also, that he might sanctify his people with his blood, suffered without the city. 13 Therefore, let us also go forth to him, without the camp, clothed with his reproach: 14 (for we have here no abiding city; but we expect one that is future:) 15 and through him, let us at all times offer to God the sacrifices of praise, that is, the fruits of lips which give thanks to his name. 16 And forget not commiseration and communication with the poor; for with such sacrifices a man pleaseth God. 17 Confide in your guides, and hearken to them; for they watch for your souls, as men who must give an account of you, that they may do this with joy and not with anguish; for that would not be profitable to you. 18 Pray ye for us; for we trust we have a good consciousness, that in all things we desire to conduct ourselves well. 19 Especially do I request you to do this, that I may return to you speedily. 20 May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the flock, by the blood of the everlasting covenant, namely Jesus the Messiah, our Lord, 21 make you perfect in every good work, that ye may do his pleasure; and himself operate in you that which is pleasing In his sight, through Jesus the Messiah; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 22 And I beseech you, my brethren, that ye be patient under this word of exhortation; for it is in few words I have written to you. 23 And know ye, that our brother Timothy is set at liberty: and if he come soon, I, with him, shall see you. 24 Salute all your guides, and all the saints. All they of Italy salute you. 25 Grace be with you all. Amen.
