Hebrews 13

Let brotherly love continue. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers: for by so doing some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those who are in prison, as if in prison with them; and those who suffer adversity, since you yourselves are also in the body. Marriage is to be held in honour by all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled: for the sexually immoral and adulterers God will judge. Let your lives be free from the love of money; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you. So we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man can do to me. Remember those who lead you, who have spoken to you the word of God: consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Do not be carried away by varied and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing for the heart to be established by grace, not by foods, which have not benefitted those who have been occupied with them. 10 We have an altar, from which those who serve at the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest as an offering for sin, are burned outside the camp. 12 Therefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people by his own blood, suffered outside the gate. 13 Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. 14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we seek the one which is to come. 15 Therefore, through him let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name. 16 Do not forget to do good and to share: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 17 Obey those who lead you, and submit to them: for they watch over your souls as those who must give account. Let it be a joyful task for them, not a sad one: for that would be unprofitable for you. 18 Pray for us: for we are sure we have a good conscience, in all things desiring to live honestly. 19 I urge you more earnestly to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner. 20 Now may the God of peace, who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 Equip you with every good thing to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 22 And I urge you, brethren, bear with this word of exhortation: for I have written to you a letter of few words. 23 I want you to know that our brother Timothy has been set at liberty; with whom, if he arrives shortly, I will come to see you. 24 Greet all those who lead you, and all the saints. Those in Italy greet you. 25 Grace be with you all. Amen.
