13 Let abrotherly love continue. 2 bBe not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby csome have entertained angels unawares. 3 dRemember them that are in bonds, eas bound with them; and them which fsuffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. 4 gMarriage is honourable in all, and hthe bed undefiled: but iwhoremongers and kadulterers lGod will judge. 5 Let your conversation be mwithout covetousness; and nbe content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, oI will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, pThe Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. 7 Remember them which * qhave the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: rwhose faith follow, considering sthe end of their tconversation. 8 Jesus Christ uthe same vyesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9 Be not wcarried about with divers and strange xdoctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; ynot with meats, zwhich have not profited them that have been occupied therein. 10 We have aan altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle. 11 For bthe bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into cthe sanctuary by the high priest dfor sin, bare burned without ethe camp. 12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might fsanctify the people with his own blood, gsuffered hwithout the gate. 13 Let us ggo forth therefore unto him without ethe camp, bearing ihis reproach. 14 For jhere have we no continuing city, but we seek ione to come. 15 kBy him therefore let us offer lthe sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, mthe fruit of our lips * giving thanks to his name. 16 But to do good and oto communicate pforget not: for with qsuch sacrifices rGod is well pleased. 17 sObey them that * have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: tfor they ttwatch for your souls, as they that must ugive account, vthat they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. 18 wPray for us: for we trust we have xa good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly. 19 But I beseech you ythe rather to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.
20 Now zthe God of peace, athat bbrought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great cshepherd of the sheep, through dthe blood of the everlasting * ecovenant, 21 fMake you perfect gin every good work hto do his will, * working in you ithat which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; kto whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 22 And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of lexhortation: for mI have written a letter unto you in few words. 23 Know ye that nour brother oTimothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you. 24 Salute all them that phave the rule over you, and qall the saints. They of rItaly salute you. 25 sGrace be with you all. Amen.
