1 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Forget not hospitality: for by it some having entertained angels were incognizant. 3 Remember those bound, as having been bound along with them; those suffering persecutions, as you yourselves being also in the body. 4 Marriage is honorable among all, and the couch undefiled: for God will judge fornicators and adulterers. 5 Let your deportment be free from covetousness; being content with present things: for he said, I will not, I will not, leave you, neither do I ever forsake you; 6 so being confident we say, The Lord is my helper, I will not fear; what shall man do unto me?
7 Remember your leaders, who spoke to you the word of God: the outgoing of whose deportment seeing, imitate their faith. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to-day, and forever. 9 Be not carried away with fantastical and strange teachings: for it is good that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, in which those going round were not profited. 10 We have an altar, from which those ministering in the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is shed by the high priest in the sanctuary for sin, are utterly burnt up outside of the camp. 12 Therefore indeed Jesus, in order that he might sanctify the people by his own blood, suffered without the gate. 13 Therefore let us go forth to him without the camp, bearing his reproach; 14 for we have here no continuing city, but we are seeking unto one which is to come. 15 Therefore let us offer to God a sacrifice of praise continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, confessing to his name. 16 But do not forget benefaction and fellowship: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 17 Obey your leaders, and be submissive: for they are watching for your souls, as they shall give an account that they may do this with joy and not with grief, for this is unprofitable to you. 18 Pray for us: for we are persuaded that we have a good conscience, wishing in all things to deport ourselves in harmony with the beauty of holiness. 19 But I the more exhort you to do this, that I may the more speedily be restored unto you.
20 And the God of peace, the one having raised up from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, the great shepherd of the sheep, make you perfect, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 in every good thing to do his will, doing that which is acceptable in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory unto the age of the ages. Amen.
22 But I exhort you, brethren, to receive the word of consolation: for I have indeed written unto you briefly. 23 Know our brother Timothy has departed; with whom, if he may come the more speedily, I shall see you. 24 Salute all your leaders, and all the saints. Those from Italy salute you. 25 Grace be with you all.
