13 Let brotherly love continue.
2 Of the entertaining of strangers be not forgetful, For hereby unawares have some entertained messengers.
3 Bear in mind them who are in bonds As having become jointly bound,—Them who are suffering ill-treatment As being yourselves also in the body.
4 Let marriage be honourable in all, and the bed undefiled, For fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
5 Without fondness for money be your way of life,—Being content with the present things,—for he hath said: In nowise thee will I leave, No indeed! in nowise thee will I forsake:
6 So that taking courage we may be saying—The Lord hasteth to my cry,—I will not be put in fear: What shall man do unto me?
7 Be mindful of them who are guiding you, Who indeed have spoken unto you the word of God: The outgoing of whose behaviour reviewing Be imitating their faith.
8 Jesus Christ yesterday and to-day is the same,—And unto the ages.
9 With teachings manifold and strange be not carried aside; For it is noble that with gratitude should the heart be getting confirmed,—Not with matters of food In which they who are walking have not been profited.
10 We have an altar—To eat out of which they have no right Who in the tent are doing divine service;
11 For in the case of those living creatures whose blood for sins is carried into the holy place through means of the high-priest The bodies of these are burned up outside the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also That he might hallow the people through means of his own blood Outside the gate suffered:
13 Now therefore let us be going forth unto him outside the camp, His reproach bearing.
14 For we have not here an abiding city, But unto that which is to be are we seeking our way.
15 Through him let us be offering up a sacrifice of praise continually unto God; That is a fruit of lips confessing unto his name.
16 But of the doing good and of fellowship be not forgetful; For with such sacrifices as these is God well-pleased.
17 Be yielding unto them who are guiding you and submit yourselves; For they are watching over your souls as having an account to render, That with joy the same they may be doing and not with sighing,—For unprofitable unto you were this.
18 Be praying for us; For we persuade ourselves that an honourable conscience have we, In all things honourably desiring to behave ourselves.
19 But much more abundantly do I exhort you the same to do, That more speedily I may be restored unto you.
20 But the God of peace He that led up from among the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep, With the blood of an age-abiding covenant,—Our Lord Jesus
21 Fit you by every good work for the doing of his will, Doing within us that which is well-pleasing before him through Jesus Christ: To whom be the glory unto the ages of ages. Amen.
22 Now I exhort you, brethren, bear with the word of exhortation,—For even with brief [words] have I sent unto you.
23 Know ye that our brother Timothy hath been set at liberty,—With whom if more speedily he be coming I will see you.
24 Salute all them who are guiding you, and all the saints: They from Italy salute you.
25 Favour be with you all.
