Hebrews 13:1-8

Context
Final Exhortations

13:1 Brotherly love must continue. 13:2 Do not neglect hospitality, because through it some have entertained angels without knowing it. 1  13:3 Remember those in prison as though you were in prison with them, 2  and those ill-treated as though you too felt their torment. 3  13:4 Marriage must be honored among all and the marriage bed kept undefiled, for God will judge sexually immoral people and adulterers. 13:5 Your conduct must be free from the love of money and you must be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you and I will never abandon you.” 4  13:6 So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, and 5  I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? 6  13:7 Remember your leaders, who spoke God’s message to you; reflect on the outcome of their lives and imitate their faith. 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever!

5 tc Some important mss (א* C* P 0285vid 33 1175 1739 pc lat) lack καί (kai), but because the omission conforms to the wording of Ps 118:6 (117:6 LXX), it is suspect.

6 sn A quotation from Ps 118:6.
