Hebrews 13:1–16

Concluding Exhortations

13 Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters.k Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers,l for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.m Continue to remember those in prisonn as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Marriage should be honored by all,o and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.p Keep your lives free from the love of moneyq and be content with what you have,r because God has said,

“Never will I leave you;

never will I forsake you.”a s

So we say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.

What can mere mortals do to me?”b t

Remember your leaders,u who spoke the word of Godv to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitatew their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.x

Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings.y It is good for our hearts to be strengthenedz by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods,a which is of no benefit to those who do so.b 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernaclec have no right to eat.d

11 The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering,e but the bodies are burned outside the camp.f 12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gateg to make the people holyh through his own blood.i 13 Let us, then, go to himj outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore.k 14 For here we do not have an enduring city,l but we are looking for the city that is to come.m

15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrificen of praise—the fruit of lipso that openly profess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others,p for with such sacrificesq God is pleased.
