1 Let a b continue.
2 Be not forgetful to a b: for thereby some have entertained c d.
3 Remember them that are in a, as bound with them; and them which b adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
4 a is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but b and c God will d.
5 Let your conversation be without a; and be b with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor c thee.
6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the a yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
9 Be not a about with divers and strange b. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might a the people with his own b, c d the gate.
13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his a.
14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
15 By him therefore let us offer the a of praise to God continually, that is, the b of our lips giving thanks to his name.
16 But to do good and to a forget not: for with such b God is well pleased.
17 a them that have the rule over you, and b yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
18 Pray for us: for we trust we have a good a, in all things willing to live b.
19 But I beseech you the rather to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.
20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great a of the sheep, through the blood of the b c,
21 Make you perfect in every good a to do his b, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
22 And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in few words.
23 Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.
24 Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you.
25 Grace be with you all. Amen.
