Hebrews 13

1 Let brotherly-love abide. 2 Do* not forget hospitality; for* through this, some lodged messengers, being eluded. 3 Remember* those who are prisoners, as having been bound together with them; those who are mistreated, as though being mistreated yourselves also in the body. 4 Let marriage be honored among all and let the marriage-bed be undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will be judging. 5 In the manner of life, not being a money-lover, be content with the things which are present*; for* he himself has said, I may never* be lax concerning you, nor am I forsaking you. 6 So-that we, being courageous, may say, The Lord is my helper and I will not be fearing. What will man be doing for me? {Gen 18:2, Deu 31:8, Jos 1:5, Psa 56:4, 11; 118:6}
7 Remember* your* leaders, men who spoke to you* the word of God, of whom after reviewing the outcome of their conduct, imitate* the faith of such! 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever. 9 Do* not be carried away by various and strange teachings; for* it is good that the heart be confirmed in gratitude; not by foods, in which those who walked were not profited. 10 We have an altar, from which those who give-divine service to the tabernacle have no authority to eat. 11 For* the bodies of those creatures, whose blood is brought into the holy of holies through the high-priest as an offering concerning sin, are burned outside the encampment. 12 Hence Jesus also suffered outside the gate, in order that he might make the people holy through his own blood. 13 Now-then let us go forth to him outside the encampment, carrying his reproach. 14 For* we do not have an abiding city here, but we are seeking after the future city. 15 Therefore, let us always offer up a sacrifice of praising through him to God, that is, the fruit of our lips confessing praise in his name. 16 But do* not forget the practice of good* and fellowship; for God is well pleased with such sacrifices. 17 Obey* and yield* yourselves to your* leaders; for* they are watching out on behalf of your* souls, as those who will be giving account; in order that they may do this thing with joy and not groaning; for* this would be detrimental to you*. {Lev 4:12, 21, Lev 16:27, Num 19:3, Mic 2:10} 18 Pray* concerning us; for* we have confidence that we have a good conscience, wishing to conduct ourselves in a good manner in all things. 19 But I am encouraging you* even-more to do this, in order that I may be restored to you* shortly.
20 Now the God of peace, who brought* up the great shepherd of the sheep, our Lord Jesus, from the dead in the blood of an everlasting covenant*, 21 may he complete you* in every good work, *that* you* should practice his will, doing what is well pleasing in his sight in you*, through Jesus Christ in whom is the glory, forevermore. Amen. 22 But I am encouraging you*, brethren, tolerate* the word of encouragement, for* I have informed you* by letter through bits of information. 23 Do you* know that our brother Timothy has been released? With whom, I will be seeing you* if he comes shortly.
24 Greet* all your* leaders and all the holy-ones. Those from Italy greet you*. 25 Grace is with all of you*. Amen.

{Please read the Preface and other non-bible sections. * is our universal footnoting for words contained in the 'Definitions' section. These words are NOT the same Greek word as the non-asterisk form; i.e. *FOR is different from FOR* is different from FOR.}

{Note: We are of the opinion Mark and Matthew were written at about the same time as James. This ties up a lot of questions why Matthew is written to the Jews and Mark was written to the Greeks.}
