Chapter 13

1

Let brotherly love continue.

2

Be not forgetful to entertain 1strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
1 Matt 25:35, 3rd John 5

3

Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

4

1Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
1 Gen 2:22, Prov 18:22

5

Let your aconversation be without 1covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, 2I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
1 Prov 23:4, Matt 6:19, Luke 12:21, Luke 12:33, Luke 18:22, 1st Tim 6:9, Jam 5:2
2 Deut 31:6, Deut 31:8, Joshua 1:5

6

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Psa 118:6

7

Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their aconversation.

8

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

9

Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with ameats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

10

We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

11

For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.

12

Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered 1without the gate.
1 Num 15:35, 1st Kings 21:13, Matt 27:32, Acts 7:58

13

Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

14

For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

15

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

16

But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

17

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

18

Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.

19

But I beseech you the rather to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.

20

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

21

Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

22

And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in few words.

23

Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.

24

Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you.

25

Grace be with you all. Amen.
