Hebrews 13

1 Let1 brotherly-philia-love be remaining. 2 Be not neglecting philia-love2 of strangers, for through this some without knowing entertained angels. 3 Be remembering the prisoners as being imprisoned with them, [and] those being treated evil-ly as even being them in body. 4 [Let] marriage [be] honorable among all and the bed undefiled, for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. 5 [Let] your character [be] not-greedy, being content with ones possessions. For he has said,
I will not abandon you,
And I will NOT forsake you.

6 So that, being confident we are saying:

The Lord is to me helper, I will not fear,
What will man do to me?

7 Be remembering your leaders, who spoke to you the word of God, of whom examining the outcome of the way of life you imitate the faith. 8 Jesus Christ yesterday and today [is] the same and to eternity. 9 By various and strange teachings be not being carried away. For [it is a] good [thing] by grace the heart be confirmed, not by foods, by which those walking are not profited. 10 We have [an] altar out of which those serving in the tabernacle do not have authority to eat. 11 For of which living [things] the blood is brought in concerning sins into the Holies by the chief priest, the bodies of these are burned up outside of the camp. 12 Therefore also Jesus, in order that he make the people holy through his own blood, suffered outside of the gate. 13 So let us be going out to him out of the camp, carrying his disgrace. 14 For we do not have here [an] abiding city, but we seek what is [about] to be. 15 Through him therefore let us be offering [a] sacrifice of praise through all to God, this is fruit of the lips confessing3 to his name. 16 But of doing good and of generosity be not being neglectful, for in such sacrifices God takes pleasure. 17 Be being persuaded by your leaders and be yielding. For they care for your psyche-lives4 as [ones] who will render account5, in order that with joy they do this and not groaning. For this is harmful to you. 18 Be praying concerning us, for we are persuaded that we have [a] good conscience, in everything wanting to be behaving well. 19 But especially do I call upon [you] to do this, in order that I more quickly be restored to you. 20 But [he is] the God of peace, the [one] leading out of the dead, the great shepherd of the sheep in [the] blood of [the] eternal contract6, our Lord Jesus, 21 to restore you in every good [thing] to do his will, doing in you the acceptable [thing] before him through Jesus Christ, to whom [is] the glory to the eternities of the eternities, Amen.

22 But I call upon you, brothers, to be bearing with [this] word of encouragement. For also briefly did I write to you. 23 You know our brother Timothy who is sent away, with whom if he come more quickly I will see you. 24 Greet all your leaders and all the holy [ones]. Those from Italy greet you. 25 Grace [be]7 with you all.
