Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Let the charity of the brotherhood abide in you. 1 Keep on loving each other as brothers.
2 And hospitality do not forget: for by this some, being not aware of it, have entertained angels. 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 bands, as if you were bound with them: and them that labour, 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 Marriage honourable in all, and the bed 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 Let your manners be without covetousness, contented with such things as you have. For he hath 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 we may confidently say: The Lord is my helper: I will not fear what man shall 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 prelates who have spoken the word of God to you: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation, 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, yesterday, and today: and the same for ever. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
9 Be not led away with various and strange doctrines. For it is best that the heart be established with grace, not with meats: which have not profited those that walk in 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 whereof they have no power 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 the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the holies by the high priest 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 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 Let us go forth therefore 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 a lasting city: but we seek one that 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 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise always to God, that is to say, the fruit of lips confessing 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 do good and to impart: for by such sacrifices God’s favour is obtained. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
17 Obey your prelates and be subject to them. For they watch as being to render an account of your souls: that they may do this with joy and not with grief. For this is not expedient 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 trust we have a good conscience, being willing to behave ourselves well 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 beseech you the more 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 And may the God of peace, who brought again from the dead the great pastor of the sheep, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the blood of the everlasting testament, 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 Fit you in all goodness, that you may do his will; doing in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom is 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 And I beseech you, brethren, that you suffer this word of consolation. For I have written to you in a 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 is 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 your prelates and all the saints. The brethren 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.
