Hebrews 13:1  Hebrews 13:25

1 Let 1abrotherly love 2continue.

2 Do not forget ahospitality, for through this some, without knowing it, have bentertained angels.

3 1Remember those who are imprisoned as bound with them, those who are aill treated as being yourselves also likewise treated in body.

4 Let 1marriage be held in honor 2among all, and the bed undefiled; for afornicators and adulterers God will 3bjudge.

5 Let your way of life be without the 1alove of money, being bsatisfied with the things which are at hand; for He Himself has said, c“I shall by no means give you up, neither by any means shall I abandon you”;

6 So that being of good courage, we say, a“The Lord is my Helper, and I will not fear. What shall man do to me?”

7 1Remember the ones aleading you, who have bspoken to you the word of God; and considering the issue of their cmanner of life, dimitate their faith.

8 1Jesus Christ is the asame yesterday and today, yes, even forever.

9 Do not be acarried away by 1bvarious strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be 2confirmed by cgrace, not by the 3dfood of sacrifices,by which those who walk were not profited.

10 We have an 1altar from which they who are serving the tabernacle have no right to aeat.

11 For the 1abodies of those animals whose bblood is brought into the Holy of Holies for sin by the high priest are burned up outside the camp.

12 Therefore also Jesus, that He might 1asanctify the people through His own 2bblood, suffered coutside the 3gate.

13 Let us therefore go forth aunto Him 1boutside the 2camp, bearing His creproach.

14 For we do not have here a 1aremaining city, but 2we bseek after the cone to come.

15 1Through Him then let us aoffer up a sacrifice of bpraise continually to God, that is, the cfruit of lips dconfessing His name.

16 But do not forget doing good and 1asharing with others, for with such bsacrifices God is well pleased.

17 1Obey the ones aleading you and bsubmit to them, for they cwatch over your souls as those who will render an account, that they may do this with joy and not groaning; for this would be unprofitable to you.

18 1aPray for us, for we are persuaded that we have a bgood conscience, desiring in all things to conduct ourselves honorably.

19 And I exhort you much more to do this that I may be restored to you more quickly.

20 Now the aGod of peace, He who bbrought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great cShepherd of the 1dsheep, in the eblood of an 2eternal fcovenant,

21 aPerfect you in every bgood work for the doing of His cwill, 1doing din us that which is well epleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ; to Him be the fglory forever and ever. Amen.

22 Now I beseech you, brothers, 1bear with the word of this aexhortation; for indeed I have written to you in few words.

23 Know that our brother 1aTimothy has been released, with whom, if he comes soon, I will see you.

24 1Greet all the ones aleading you and all the saints. Those from Italy greet you.

25 1aGrace be with you all. Amen.

Hebrews 12:10  Hebrews 12:29

10 For they disciplined for a few days as it seemed good to them; but He, for what is profitable that we might partake of His 1aholiness.

11 Now no discipline at the present time seems to be a matter of joy, but of grief; but afterward it yields the 1apeaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been exercised by it.

12 Therefore 1set straight the ahands which hang down and the paralyzed knees,

13 And make astraight 1paths for your feet, that what is lame may not be 2put out of joint but rather may be bhealed.

14 aPursue peace with all men and 1bsanctification, without which no one will see the Lord;

15 Looking carefully lest anyone 1afall away from the bgrace of God; lest any 2croot of bitterness springing up trouble you, and through this many be ddefiled;

16 Lest there be any afornicator or profane person like bEsau, who for one meal gave up his own 1birthright.

17 For you know that also afterward, when he adesired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected; for he found 1no place for repentance, even though he sought it with tears.

18 For you have not come forward to a 1amountain which could be btouched and which was set on cfire, and to ddarkness and egloom and whirlwind,

19 And to the asound of a trumpet and to the bvoice of words, because of which those who heard centreated that no further word be spoken to them;

20 For they could not bear that which was being commanded: a“If even a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned.”

21 And so fearful was the sight, Moses said, “I am afull of fear and trembling.”

22 But you have come forward to 1Mount aZion and to the 2bcity of the cliving God, the dheavenly Jerusalem; and to emyriads of angels, to the 3universal gathering;

23 And to the achurch of the 1bfirstborn, who have been 2cenrolled in the heavens; and to God, the dJudge of all; and to the spirits of righteous men who have been made perfect;

24 And to Jesus, the aMediator of a 1bnew covenant; and to the 2cblood of dsprinkling, which 3speaks something better than that of eAbel.

25 See that you do not refuse Him who aspeaks, for if those did not bescape who refused Him who warned them upon the earth, much more we shall not cescape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven,

26 Whose voice at that time ashook the earth but now has promised, saying, b“Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven.”

27 And this word, “Yet once more,” shows clearly the aremoval of the things being shaken as being of things having been made, that the things which are not shaken may bremain.

28 Therefore receiving an unshakable 1akingdom, let us 2have bgrace, through which we may cserve God dwell-pleasingly with piety and efear;

29 For our God is also a 1consuming afire.

Hebrews 11:28  Hebrews 12:9

28 By faith he instituted the aPassover and the pouring out of the blood so that the bone destroying the firstborn would not touch them.

29 By faith they apassed through the Red Sea as through dry land, in which the Egyptians, while making the attempt, were swallowed up.

30 1By faith the awalls of Jericho fell, having been bencircled for a period of seven days.

31 By faith aRahab the harlot did not perish with those who were disobedient, since she had breceived the spies with peace.

32 And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of aGideon, bBarak, cSamson, dJephthah, of eDavid and fSamuel and the prophets,

33 Who through faith aovercame kingdoms, bworked righteousness, cobtained promises, dstopped the mouths of lions,

34 aQuenched the power of fire, bescaped the edge of the sword, were made strong in weakness, became cmighty in war, routed the armies of foreigners.

35 Women areceived their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured to death, not accepting 1deliverance, in order that they might obtain a 2bbetter resurrection.

36 And still others underwent the trial of amockings and scourgings, even, moreover, of bonds and bimprisonment.

37 They were astoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they died by the bmurder of the sword, they wandered about in sheepskins, in goatskins, destitute, afflicted, cill treated

38 (Of 1whom the world was not worthy), wandering over adeserts and bmountains and in ccaves and holes of the earth.

39 And these all, having obtained a good atestimony through their faith, did bnot obtain the promise,

40 Because God has 1provided something 2abetter for us, so that 3apart from us they would not be made perfect.



1 Therefore let us also, having so great a 1acloud of 2witnesses surrounding us, put away every 3encumbrance and the 4bsin which so easily entangles us and crun with dendurance the 5race which is set before us,

2 1Looking away aunto 2Jesus, the 3bAuthor and 4Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the ccross, despising the dshame, and has 5esat down on the right hand of the fthrone of God.

3 For acompare Him who has endured such bcontradiction by sinners against Himself, so that you may not grow weary, 1fainting in your souls.

4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, struggling against 1sin,

5 And you have completely forgotten the exhortation which reasons with you as with sons, a“My son, do not regard lightly the 1discipline of the Lord, nor faint when reproved by Him;

6 For whom the Lord loves He 1adisciplines, and He bscourges every son whom He receives.”

7 It is for 1discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with asons. For what son is there whom the father does not discipline?

8 But if you are without discipline, of which all sons have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

9 Furthermore we have had the fathers of our flesh as 1discipliners and we arespected them; shall we not much more be in subjection to the 2bFather of spirits and clive?

Hebrews 11:8  Hebrews 11:27

8 By faith aAbraham, being called, obeyed to bgo out unto a place which he was to creceive as an inheritance; and he went out, 1not knowing where he was going.

9 By faith he dwelt as a foreigner in the aland of promise as in a foreign land, making his home in btents with Isaac and Jacob, the fellow cheirs of the same promise;

10 For he eagerly waited for the 1acity which has the bfoundations, whose Architect and Builder is cGod.

11 By faith also aSarah herself received power to conceive seed, even beyond the season of age, since she considered Him bfaithful who promised.

12 Therefore also there were born of one, and that of him who had become adead, as many as even the 1bstars of heaven in multitude and as the 1csand by the 2seashore innumerable.

13 All athese died 1in faith, bnot receiving the promises but cseeing them from afar and joyfully greeting them and confessing that they were dstrangers and 2sojourners on the earth.

14 For those who say such things make it manifest that they seek after a acountry of their own.

15 And if indeed they continued to remember that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return;

16 But as it is, they long after a better acountry, that is, a bheavenly one. Therefore God is cnot ashamed of them, to be called dtheir God, for He has prepared a ecity for them.

17 By faith Abraham, being tested, aoffered up Isaac; indeed he who gladly received the bpromises was offering up his only begotten,

18 Of whom it was said, a“In Isaac shall your seed be called”;

19 Counting that God was aable to braise men even from the dead, from which he also received him back in 1figure.

20 By faith aIsaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even concerning things to come.

21 By faith aJacob, while he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph and bworshipped God, while 1leaning on the top of his staff.

22 By faith aJoseph, nearing his end, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel and bgave orders concerning his bones.

23 By faith aMoses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents because they saw that the child was blovely, and they did not fear the cking’s decree.

24 By faith Moses, when he had agrown up, refused to be called the bson of Pharaoh’s daughter,

25 Choosing rather to be aill treated with the people of God than to have the 1temporary 2enjoyment of sin,

26 1aConsidering the 2breproach of the Christ greater riches than the ctreasures of Egypt; for he dlooked away to the 3ereward.

27 By faith he aleft Egypt, not fearing the bwrath of the king, for he 1persevered as one cseeing the dunseen One.

Hebrews 10:26  Hebrews 11:7

26 For when we 1sin willfully after receiving the knowledge of the 2truth, there 3ano longer remains a bsacrifice of bulls and goats for sins,

27 But a certain afearful expectation of bjudgment and cfervor of fire, which is to dconsume the adversaries.

28 aAnyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without compassion on the testimony of btwo or three witnesses.

29 aBy bhow much do you think he will be thought worthy of 1worse punishment who has 2ctrampled underfoot the Son of God and has 3considered dthe blood of the covenant by which he was esanctified a common thing and has 4insulted the fSpirit of grace?

30 For we know Him who said, 1a“Vengeance is Mine; I will repay”; and again, b“The Lord will cjudge His people.”

31 It is a afearful thing to fall into the hands of the bliving God.

32 But call to mind the former days, in which, having been aenlightened, you endured a great bconflict of csufferings;

33 On one hand, being made a 1aspectacle both in breproaches and in afflictions, and on the other, having become cpartakers with those who are treated the same.

34 For you both sympathized with those in abonds and accepted with bjoy the plundering of your possessions, knowing that you yourselves have a 1better cpossession and one that abides.

35 Do not cast away therefore your aboldness, which has great 1breward.

36 For you have need of aendurance in order that, having done the 1will of God, you may obtain the 2bpromise.

37 “For in yet a very little while the Coming One will acome and will not delay.

38 But My arighteous one shall live bby 1faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul does not delight in him.”

39 But we are not of those who 1shrink back to 2ruin but of them who have faith to the 3againing of the soul.


1 Now 1afaith is the 2substantiation of things 3bhoped for, the 4conviction of things 5cnot seen.

2 For in this the elders have obtained a good atestimony.

3 1By faith we understand that the 2auniverse has been framed by the 3bword of God, so that what is seen has not come into cbeing out of things which appear.

4 By faith aAbel offered to God a 1more excellent sacrifice than bCain, through which he obtained the ctestimony that he was righteous, God dtestifying to his gifts; and through 2faith, though he has died, he still espeaks.

5 By faith aEnoch was translated so that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For before his translation he obtained the btestimony that he had been well pleasing to God.

6 But without faith it is impossible to 1be well pleasing to Him, for he who acomes forward to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who 2bdiligently seek Him.

7 By faith aNoah, having been divinely instructed concerning things not yet seen and being moved by pious fear, bprepared an ark for the salvation of his house, through which he condemned the world, and became cheir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
