The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 Let brotherly love abide. 1 Keep on loving each other as brothers.
2 Be not forgetful of hospitality; for by it some have unawares entertained angels. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

5 [Let your] conversation [be] without love of money, satisfied with [your] present circumstances; for *he* has said, I will not leave thee, neither will I 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, taking courage, we may say, The Lord [is] my helper, and I will not be afraid: what will 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 your leaders who have spoken to you the word of God; and considering the issue of their conversation, 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, and to the ages [to come]. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
9 Be not carried away with various and strange doctrines; for [it is] good that the heart be confirmed with grace, not meats; those who have walked in which have not been profited by [them]. 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 of which they have no right to eat who serve the tabernacle; 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.
11 for of those beasts whose blood is carried [as sacrifices for sin] into the [holy of] holies by the high priest, of these the bodies 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 Wherefore also Jesus, that he might sanctify the people by 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 therefore let us go forth to 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 the coming one. 14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.
15 By him therefore let us offer [the] sacrifice of praise continually to God, that is, [the] fruit of [the] lips confessing 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 of doing good and communicating [of your substance] be not forgetful, 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 your leaders, and be submissive; for *they* watch over your souls as those that shall give account; that they may do this with joy, and not groaning, for this [would be] 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 persuade ourselves that we have a good conscience, in all things desirous to walk rightly. 18 Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way.
19 But I much more beseech [you] to do this, that I may the more quickly be restored to you. 19 I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.
20 But the God of peace, who brought again from among [the] dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, in [the power of the] blood of [the] eternal covenant, 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 perfect you in every good work to the doing of his will, doing in you what is pleasing before him through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] glory for the ages of 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 But I beseech you, brethren, bear the word of exhortation, for it is but in few words 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 Know that our brother Timotheus is set at liberty; with whom, if he should come soon, 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 your leaders, and all the saints. They from 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.
