Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Let brotherly love always continue. 1 Keep on loving each other as brothers.
2 Do not neglect to show kindness to strangers; for, in this way, some, without knowing it, have had angels as their guests. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
3 Remember prisoners, as if you were in prison with them; and remember those suffering ill-treatment, for you yourselves also are still 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 held in honour among all, and let the marriage bed be unpolluted; 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 Your lives should be untainted by love for money. Be content with what you have; for God Himself has said, "I will never, never let go your hand: I will never never forsake you." 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 we fearlessly say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid: what can man do to 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 your former leaders--it was they who brought you God's Message. Bear in mind how they ended their lives, and 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--yes, and to the ages to come. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
9 Do not be drawn aside by all sorts of strange teaching; for it is well to have the heart made stedfast through God's grace, and not by special kinds of food, from which those who scrupulously attend to them have derived no benefit. 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 Christians have an altar from which the ministers of the Jewish Tent have no right to eat. 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.
11 For the bodies of those animals of which the blood is carried by the High Priest into the Holy place as an offering for sin, are burned outside 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 And for this reason Jesus also, in order, by His own blood, to set the people free from sin, suffered outside the gate. 12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood.
13 Therefore let us go to Him outside the camp, sharing the insults directed against Him. 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore.
14 For we have no permanent city here, but we are longing for the city which is soon to be ours. 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 continually lay on the altar a sacrifice of praise to God, namely, the utterance of lips that give thanks 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 And do not forget to be kind and liberal; for with sacrifices of that sort God is greatly pleased. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
17 Obey your leaders and be submissive to them. For they are keeping watch over your souls as those who will have to give account; that they may do this with joy and not with lamentation. For that would be of no advantage to 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 Keep on praying for us; for we are sure that we have clear consciences, and we desire to live nobly in every respect. 18 Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way.
19 I specially urge this upon you in order that I may be the more speedily restored to you. 19 I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.
20 Now may God who gives peace, and brought Jesus, our Lord, up again from among the dead--even Him who, by virtue of the blood of the eternal Covenant, is the great Shepherd of the sheep-- 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 fully equip you with every grace that you may need for the doing of His will, producing in us that which will truly please Him through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory to the Ages of the Ages! 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 Bear with me, brethren, when I thus exhort you; for, in fact, it is but a short letter that I have written to you. 22 Brothers, I urge you to bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written you only a short letter.
23 You will rejoice to hear that our brother Timothy has been set at liberty. If he comes soon, I will see you with him. 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 Greet all your leaders and all God's people. The brethren from Italy send you greetings. 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.
