Let brotherly loue continue.
Bee not forgetfull to entertaine strangers, for thereby some haue entertayned Angels vnawares.
Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer aduersitie, as being your selues also in the body.

Let your conuersation bee without couetousnesse: and be content with such things as yee haue. For hee hath said, I will neuer leaue thee, nor forsake thee.5
So that wee may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not feare what man shall doe vnto me.
Remember them which haue the rule ouer you, who haue spoken vnto you the word of God, whose faith follow, considering the end of their conuersation.7
Iesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for euer.
Be not caried about with diuers and strange doctrines: for it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace, not with meates, which haue not profited them that haue beene occupied therein.
Wee haue an altar whereof they haue no right to eate, which serue the Tabernacle.
For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the Sanctuary by the high Priest for sinne, are burnt without the campe.

For here haue we no continuing citie, but we seeke one to come.14
By him therefore let vs offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lippes, giuing thankes to his Name.15
But to doe good, and to communicate forget not, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Obey them that haue the rule ouer you, and submit your selues: for they watch for your soules, as they that must giue account, that they may doe it with ioy, and not with griefe: for that is vnprofitable for you.17
Pray for vs: for we trust wee haue a good conscience in all things, willing to liue honestly.
But I beseech you the rather to doe this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.
Now the God of peace, that brought againe from the dead our Lord Iesus, that great shepheard of the sheepe, through the blood of the euerlasting Couenant,20
Make you perfect in euery good worke to doe his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Iesus Christ, to whom be glorie for euer and euer. Amen.21
And I beseech you brethren, suffer the word of exhortation, for I haue written a letter vnto you in few words.
Know yee, that our brother Timothie is set at libertie, with whom if he come shortly, I will see you.
Salute all them that haue the rule ouer you, and al the Saints. They of Italy salute you.
Grace be with you all. Amen. [Written to the Hebrewes, from Italy, by Timothie.]
