Hebreus 13

1 Let brotherly love continue.

2 Be not forgetfull to intertaine strangers: for thereby some haue receiued Angels into their houses vnwares.

3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; [and] them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

4 Marriage [is] honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

5 [Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath 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 them which have the rule over you, 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 to day, and for ever.

9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For [it is] a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

11 For the bodies of those beastes whose blood is brought into the Holy place by the high Priest for sinne, are burnt without the campe.

12 Therefore euen Iesus, that he might sanctifie the people with his owne blood, suffered without the gate.

13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

14 For here haue we no continuing citie: but we seeke one to come.

15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to his name.

16 To doe good, and to distribute forget not: for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they 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 willing to live honestly.

19 And I desire you somewhat the more earnestly, that yee so doe, that I may be restored to you more quickly.

20 The God of peace that brought againe from the dead our Lord Iesus, the great shepheard of the sheepe, through the blood of the euerlasting Couenant,

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 ever and ever. Amen.

22 I beseeche you also, brethren, suffer the wordes of exhortation: for I haue written vnto you in fewe wordes.

23 Knowe that our brother Timotheus is deliuered, with whome (if hee come shortly) I will see you.

24 Salute all them that haue the ouersight of you, and all the Saintes. They of Italie salute you.

25 Grace be with you all, Amen. Written to the Hebrewes from Italie, and sent by Timotheus.
