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. 4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.

1 Sarah R = "Chapter 13 is the final chapter of Hebrews. The writer has closing remarks of counsel and warnings, as well as greetings to fellow believers."
2 Sarah R = "There are four words for love used in the Bible. The word used here is "philadelphia", meaning "love of brethren" or "brotherly love". This is love shown between family members and close friends."
3 Sarah R = "In Genesis 18 we read about Abraham who was visited by three men who were angels of the Lord. "
4 Sarah R = "That is, those who are in prison for the faith. Today in some parts of the world people are still imprisoned simply for professing faith in Jesus."
5 Sarah R = "The Message Version of the Bible translates this verse this way:"Honor marriage, and guard the sacredness of sexual intimacy between wife and husband. God draws a firm line against casual and illicit sex.""
6 Cary W = "When we learn to live in His presence and ever before Him in surrender, nothing is this world really matters, except for how it relates to His path for us, and His blessed provision and blessings.In Him we have all that Jesus received from the Father, His Kingdom inside our inner being, and with that, there is no worldly success or treasure that compares; even the body is simply His instrument to use while we tarry here a while."
7 Sarah R = "A quote from Deuteronomy 31:6."
8 Sarah R = "A quote from Psalms 118:6."
9 Sarah R = "This likely refers to the church leaders. Pastors, elders, deacons... those in leadership at a church should be examples to the congregation on how to live a life of faith. The Bible is clear that they will be held accountable by a higher standard for how they lead and what they teach (James 3:1)."
10 Sarah R = "This sums up the writer's argument through the whole book of Hebrews that Jesus is the ultimate Mediator and high priest, establishing a new covenant with us that is better than the previous covenant because it lasts forever. Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the sacrifice for sins, never changes. He was (John 1) nad is and is to come. Amen."
11 Sarah R = "We should be wary of those who preach a "new gospel," "new revelation", or a message that conflicts with Biblical teachings. God does not change just because we want Him to. Often these "new revelations" are brought on by those with their own personal agendas, wanting to justify their actions. We should always, always check teachings we hear and read by the Word of God."
12 Cary W = "The quickest way back to God, regardless of how we strayed or how bad we may feel, is to make the sacrifice of song and praise.  Especially when it is the last thing you want to do.  It is especially in those times, He will rush His angels to attend and assist us."
13 Sarah R = "A closing benediction to his readers. Many churches also close services with a benediction, or blessing, like this."
