Hebrews 13 (asv)

13:1Let love of the brethren continue. 13:2Forget not to show love unto strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. 13:3Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; them that are illtreated, as being yourselves also in the body. 13:4Let marriage be had in honor among all, and let the bed be undefiled: for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. 13:5Be ye free from the love of money; content with such things as ye have: for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee. 13:6So that with good courage we say,

The Lord is my helper; I will not fear:

What shall man do unto me?

13:7Remember them that had the rule over you, men that spake unto you the word of God; and considering the issue of their life, imitate their faith. 13:8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and to-day, yea and for ever.13:9Be not carried away by divers and strange teachings: for it is good that the heart be established by grace; not by meats, wherein they that occupied themselves were not profited. 13:10We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat that serve the tabernacle. 13:11For the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest as an offering for sin, are burned without the camp. 13:12Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people through his own blood, suffered without the gate. 13:13Let us therefore go forth unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. 13:14For we have not here an abiding city, but we seek after the city which is to come. 13:15Through him then let us offer up a sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of lips which make confession to his name. 13:16But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 13:17Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit to them: for they watch in behalf of your souls, as they that shall give account; that they may do this with joy, and not with grief: for this were unprofitable for you. 13:18Pray for us: for we are persuaded that we have a good conscience, desiring to live honorably in all things. 13:19And I exhort you the more exceedingly to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner. 13:20Now the God of peace, who brought again from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep with the blood of an eternal covenant, even our Lord Jesus, 13:21make you perfect in every good thing to do his will, working in us that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen. 13:22But I exhort you, brethren, bear with the word of exhortation, for I have written unto you in few words. 13:23Know ye that our brother Timothy hath been set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.13:24Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you. 13:25Grace be with you all. Amen.
