THE EPISTLE OF THE
2H E B R E W S
Hebrews 13 ©
1 The apostle exhorts them to brotherly love. 2 To hospitality. 3 To remembrance of those who are in prison. 4 Declares that marriage is honorable among all. 5 Warns them of covetousness, and exhorts them to contentment. 7 And propounds to them the example of their predecessors. 9 Warns them also of strange doctrine, and in particular of difference of meats. 10 For that end he sets before their eyes a type in the propitiatory sacrifices, of which no man might eat. 15 Exhorts them to sacrifices of thankfulness, especially to confession of the name of God, and to liberality. 17 And to obedience unto their pastors. 18 Exhorts them to pray unto God for him, for his release. 20 And prays God to perfect them in all good works. 22 Concludes the epistle with a new exhortation. 23 And promises that he will speedily see them again with Timothy, and sets down certain salutations from one side to the other.
LET brotherlya love 1continue.
Beb not forgetful to 2entertain strangers: forc thereby some have entertained angels 3unawares.
Rememberd them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also 4in the body.
Marriage is honourable 5in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Lete your 6conversation be without covetousness; andf be content with such things 7as ye have: for 8he hath said, Ig will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
So that we may 9boldly say, Theh Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Remember 10them whichi have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
Jesus Christ the same 11yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
12Bej not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established 13with grace; notk with meats, which have 14not profited them that have been occupied therein.
We have 15an altar, whereof they have no right 16to eat 17which serve the tabernacle.
Forl the 18bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought 19into the sanctuary by the high priest 20for sin, 21are burned 22without the camp.
23Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify 24the people with his own blood, suffered withoutm the gate.
Let us 25go forth therefore 26unto him 27without the camp, 28bearing his reproach.
Forn here have we 29no continuing city, but we 30seek one to come.
31By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, theo32fruit of our lips giving 33thanks to his name.
But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with 34such sacrifices 35God is well pleased.
36Obeyp them 37that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, asq they that must 38give account, that they may do it with joy, and not 39with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
Pray for us: for we trust we have 40a good conscience, 41in all things willing to live 42honestly.
But I beseech you the rather to do this, that I may be restored to you 43the sooner.
Now 44the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, thatr45great shepherd of the sheep, 46through the blood 47of the everlasting covenant,
Makes you 48perfect in every good work to do his will, 49working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; 50to whom be glory 51for ever and ever. Amen.
And I beseech you, brethren, 52suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in 53few words.
Know ye that our brother 54Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, 55I will see you.
Salute all them 56that have the rule over you, and all 57the saints. They 58of Italy salute you.
59Grace be with you all. Amen.
