American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Let love of the brethren continue. 1 Keep on loving each other as brothers.
2 Forget not to show love unto strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; them that are illtreated, as being yourselves also in the body. 3 Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
4 [Let] marriage [be] had in honor among all, and [let] the bed [be] undefiled: for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. 4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
5 Be ye free from the love of money; content with such things as ye have: for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee. 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
6 So that with good courage we say, The Lord is my helper; I will not fear: What shall man do unto me? 6 So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"
7 Remember them that had the rule over you, men that spake unto you the word of God; and considering the issue of their life, imitate their faith. 7 Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
8 Jesus Christ [is] the same yesterday and to-day, [yea] and for ever. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
9 Be not carried away by divers and strange teachings: for it is good that the heart be established by grace; not by meats, wherein they that occupied themselves were not profited. 9 Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them.
10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat that serve the tabernacle. 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.
11 For the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest [as an offering] for sin, are burned without the camp. 11 The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people through his own blood, suffered without the gate. 12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood.
13 Let us therefore go forth unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore.
14 For we have not here an abiding city, but we seek after [the city] which is to come. 14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.
15 Through him then let us offer up a sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of lips which make confession to his name. 15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise--the fruit of lips that confess his name.
16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit [to them]: for they watch in behalf of your souls, as they that shall give account; that they may do this with joy, and not with grief: for this [were] unprofitable for you. 17 Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.
18 Pray for us: for we are persuaded that we have a good conscience, desiring to live honorably in all things. 18 Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way.
19 And I exhort [you] the more exceedingly to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner. 19 I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.
20 Now the God of peace, who brought again from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep with the blood of an eternal covenant, [even] our Lord Jesus, 20 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,
21 make you perfect in every good thing to do his will, working in us that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] the glory for ever and ever. Amen. 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
22 But I exhort you, brethren, bear with the word of exhortation, for I have written unto you in few words. 22 Brothers, I urge you to bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written you only a short letter.
23 Know ye that our brother Timothy hath been set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you. 23 I want you to know that our brother Timothy has been released. If he arrives soon, I will come with him to see you.
24 Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you. 24 Greet all your leaders and all God's people. Those from Italy send you their greetings.
25 Grace be with you all. Amen. 25 Grace be with you all.
