There were some who did that and welcomed angels without knowing it. NIV 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. GNT 3 Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them. Remember those who are suffering, as though you were suffering as they are. NIV 3 Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. GNT 4 Marriage is to be honored by all, and husbands and wives must be faithful to each other. God will judge those who are immoral and those who commit adultery. NIV 4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. GNT 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, "I will never leave you; I will never abandon you." NIV 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." GNT 6 Let us be bold, then, and say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?" NIV 6 So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" GNT 7 Remember your former leaders, who spoke God's message to you. Think back on how they lived and died, and imitate their faith.

It is good to receive inner strength from God's grace, and not by obeying rules about foods; those who obey these rules have not been helped by them.

NIV 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat. GNT 11 The Jewish high priest brings the blood of the animals into the Most Holy Place to offer it as a sacrifice for sins; but the bodies of the animals are burned outside the camp. NIV 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. GNT 12 For this reason Jesus also died outside the city, in order to purify the people from sin with his own blood.

NIV 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. GNT 14 For there is no permanent city for us here on earth; we are looking for the city which is to come.

NIV 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. GNT 17 Obey your leaders and follow their orders. They watch over your souls without resting, since they must give to God an account of their service. If you obey them, they will do their work gladly; if not, they will do it with sadness, and that would be of no help to you. NIV 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. GNT 18 Keep on praying for us. We are sure we have a clear conscience, because we want to do the right thing at all times. NIV 18 Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way.

Amen. NIV 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, GNT 22 I beg you, my friends, to listen patiently to this message of encouragement; for this letter I have written you is not very long.

If he comes soon enough, I will have him with me when I see you. NIV 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.
