Hebrews 13
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Let brotherly love remain. 2Do not be forgetful of hospitality, for through this some entertained messengers unaware. 3Be mindful of those in bonds, as having been bound with them, of those maltreated, as yourselves also being in the body. 4The marriage [is to be] honored by all, and the bed undefiled, for God will judge whoremongers and adulterers.

5[Be] without covetous behavior, being content with the things present, for He has said, “No, I will not leave, no, nor forsake you,”

6so that we boldly say, “The LORD [is] to me a helper, and I will not fear what man will do to me.”

7Be mindful of those leading you, who spoke to you the word of God, who, considering the outcome of [their] behavior, imitate [their] faith: 8Jesus Christ—the same yesterday and today and for all ages. 9Do not be carried away with strange and manifold teachings, for [it is] good that by grace the heart is confirmed, not with meats, in which they who were occupied were not profited; 10we have an altar from which they who are serving the Dwelling Place have no authority to eat, 11for of those beasts whose blood is brought for sin into the holy places through the chief priest—of these the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12For this reason, also Jesus—that He might sanctify the people through [His] own blood—suffered outside the gate; 13now then, may we go forth to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach; 14for we have no abiding city here, but we seek the coming one.

15Through Him, then, we may always offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips, giving thanks to His Name. 16And do not be forgetful of doing good and of fellowship, for God is well-pleased with such sacrifices.

17Be obedient to those leading you, and be subject, for these watch for your souls, as about to give account, that they may do this with joy, and not sighing, for this [is] unprofitable to you.

18Pray for us, for we trust that we have a good conscience, willing to behave well in all things, 19and I call on [you] to do this more abundantly, that I may be restored to you more quickly.

20And the God of peace, who brought up the Great Shepherd of the sheep out of the dead—by the blood of a perpetual covenant—our Lord Jesus, 21make you perfect in every good work to do His will, doing in you that which is well-pleasing before Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom [is] the glory through the ages of the ages! Amen.

22And I beg you, brothers, endure the word of the exhortation, for I have also written to you through few words. 23Know that the brother Timotheus is released, with whom I will see you, if he may come more shortly. 24Greet all those leading you, and all the holy ones. Those from Italy greet you.

25The grace [is] with you all! Amen.
