|<< Hebrews 13 >>|
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
1 Let brotherly love continue.
2 Do not forget to show hospitality; for thereby some, having entertained angels, were kept.
3 Remember those that are in bonds as bound with them and those who suffer adversity as being yourselves also in the body.
4 Let marriage be honourable in all and the bed undefiled; but the fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
5Let your conversation be without covetousness, and be content with such things as ye have; for he has said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 Remember your pastors, who have spoken unto you the word of God, whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation:
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and for the ages.
9 Be not taken out of the way with diverse and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace, not with foods which have not profited those that have been occupied with them.
10 We have an altar, of which those who serve the tabernacle have no faculty to eat.
11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp.
12 Therefore, Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.
13 Let us go forth, therefore, unto him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.
14 For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one that is coming.
15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips confessing his name.
16 Do not forget to do good and to fellowship; for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
17 Listen to your pastors, and do not resist them, for they watch for your souls as those that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief; for that is unprofitable for you.
18 Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience in all things desiring to conduct ourselves well.
19 And I beseech you all the more to do this, that I may be restored unto you sooner.
20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the eternal testament,
21 make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for the ages of the ages. Amen.
22 And I beseech you, brethren, that ye receive this word of exhortation, that I have written unto you briefly.
23 Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he comes shortly, I will see you.
24 Salute all thy pastors and all the saints. The brethren of Italy salute you.
25 Grace be with you all. Amen.
