Chapter 13

1 Let brotherly loue continue.
2 Be not forgetfull to lodge straungers: For therby some hauyng lodged Angels, were vnawares therof.
3 Remember them that are in bondes, as bounde with them: And them which suffer aduersitie, as also ye your selues beyng in the body [suffered aduersitie].
4 Wedlocke is honorable among all men, and the bed vndefiled: But whoremongers and adulterers God wyll iudge.
5 Let your conuersation be without couetousnesse, beyng content with such thynges as ye haue. For he hath sayde: I wyll not fayle thee, neither forsake thee.
6 So that we may boldely saye, the Lorde is my helper, and I wyll not feare what man way do vnto me.
7 Remember them which haue the ouersyght of you, which haue spoken vnto you the worde of God: Whose ende of conuersation ye consideryng, folowe their fayth.
8 Iesus Christe yesterday and to day, and the same for euer.
9 Be not caryed about with diuers & strange doctrines: For it is a good thing that the heart be stablisshed with grace, & not with meates, which haue not profited the that haue ben occupied therin.
10 We haue an aulter, wherof they haue no ryght to eate which serue in the tabernacle.
11 For the bodyes of those beastes whose blood is brought into the holy place by the hie priest for sinne, are burnt without the tentes.
12 Therfore Iesus also, that he myght sanctifie ye people with his owne blood, suffered without the gate.
13 Let vs go foorth therfore vnto hym out of the tentes, bearyng his reproche.
14 For here haue we no continuyng citie: but we seke one to come.
15 By hym therfore, do we offer sacrifice of laude alwayes to God: that is, the fruite of lippes confessyng his name.
16 To do good & to distribute forget not, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
17 Obey them that haue the ouersight of you, and submit your selues: for they watche for your soules, as they that must geue accomptes, that they may do it with ioy, and not with griefe: for that is vnprofitable for you.
18 Pray for vs: For we trust we haue a good conscience, in all thynges wyllyng to lyue honestlie.
19 But I desire you the more earnestlie that ye so do, that I may be restored to you the sooner.
20 The God of peace, that brought agayne from the dead our Lorde Iesus the great sheephearde of the sheepe, through the blood of the euerlasting couenaunt,
21 Make you perfect in all good workes to do his wyll, workyng in you that which is pleasaunt in his sight, through Iesus Christe, to whom be prayse for euer and euer. Amen.
22 And I beseche you brethren, suffer the worde of exhortation: for I haue written vnto you in fewe wordes.
23 Knowe ye, that brother Timothe is delyuered: With whom (yf he come shortly) I wyll see you.
24 Salute all them that haue the ouersight of you, and all the saintes. They of Italie salute you.
25 Grace be with you all. Amen. Written from Italie by Timotheus.
