NASB — Hebrews 13 — KJV

The Changeless Christ

1 Let alove of the brethren continue. 2 Do not neglect to ashow hospitality to strangers, for by this some have bentertained angels without knowing it. 3 aRemember bthe prisoners, as though in prison with them, [and] those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body. 4 aMarriage [is to be held] in honor among all, and the [marriage] bed [is to be] undefiled; bfor fornicators and adulterers God will judge. 5 [Make sure that] your character is afree from the love of money, bbeing content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “cI WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,” 6 so that we confidently say,
  “aTHE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID.
  WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?”

7 ¶ Remember athose who led you, who spoke bthe word of God to you; and considering the Iresult of their conduct, cimitate their faith. 8 aJesus Christ [is] the same yesterday and today and forever. 9 aDo not be carried away by varied and strange teachings; for it is good for the heart to bbe strengthened by grace, not by cfoods, dthrough which those who Iwere so occupied were not benefited. 10 We have an altar afrom which those bwho serve the Itabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For athe bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest [as an offering] for sin, are burned outside the camp. 12 Therefore Jesus also, athat He might sanctify the people bthrough His own blood, suffered coutside the gate. 13 So, let us go out to Him outside the camp, abearing His reproach. 14 For here awe do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking b[the city] which is to come.

God-pleasing Sacrifices

15 aThrough Him then, let us continually offer up a bsacrifice of praise to God, that is, cthe fruit of lips that Igive thanks to His name. 16 And do not neglect doing good and asharing, for bwith such sacrifices God is pleased.

Divers admonitions, as to charity,

1 ¶ Let brotherly love continue. 2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. 3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; [and] them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

to avoid covetousness,

5 [Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord [is] my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

to regard God's preachers,

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] conversation. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

to take heed of strange doctrines,

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 meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

[9] Lv 11:1; Dt 14:3; Mt 24:4, 24; Ac 10:14; 20:30, 32; Ro 14:2, 6, 17; 16:17; 1Co 6:13; 8:8; 2Co 1:21; 11:11; Ga 1:6; 6:1; Ep 4:14; 5:6; Col 2:4, 8, 16; 2Th 2:2, 17; 1Ti 4:1, 3; 6:3, 20; 2Ti 2:1; Tit 1:14; He 9:9; 1Jn 4:1; Jde 1:3.

to confess Christ,

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 without the gate. 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.

The conclusion.

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. [[[Written to the Hebrews from Italy, by Timothy.]]]
