希伯來書 13

做上帝喜悅的事

1你們要繼續彼此相愛,情同手足。 不要忘記款待客旅,因為曾經有人接待客旅時不知不覺接待了天使。 要設身處地地顧念那些被囚禁的人,要感同身受地顧念那些遭遇苦難的人。

人人都要尊重婚姻,不可玷污夫妻關係[a],因為上帝必審判淫亂和通姦的人。

不要貪愛錢財,要對自己擁有的知足,因為上帝說過:

「我永不撇下你,也不離棄你。」

這樣,我們可以放膽地說:

「主是我的幫助,
我必不懼怕,
人能把我怎麼樣?」

你們要記住從前帶領你們、把上帝的道傳給你們的人,留心觀察他們一生如何行事為人,效法他們的信心。 耶穌基督昨日、今日、直到永遠都不改變。 你們不要被五花八門的異端邪說勾引了去,因為心中得到力量是靠上帝的恩典,而不是靠飲食上的禮儀,這些禮儀從未使遵守的人受益。

10 我們有一座祭壇,壇上的祭物是那些在聖幕裡工作的人沒有權利吃的。 11 大祭司把祭牲的血帶進聖所作為贖罪祭獻上,而祭牲的身體則在營外燒掉。 12 同樣,耶穌也在城門外受難,為要用自己的血使祂的子民聖潔。 13 因此,讓我們也走出營外到祂那裡,忍受祂所忍受的凌辱吧! 14 我們在地上沒有永遠的城,我們尋求的是那將來的城。

15 讓我們靠著基督,常常開口以頌讚為祭獻給上帝,這是承認主名的人[b]所結的果子。 16 不可忘記行善和幫補別人,因為這樣的祭是上帝所喜悅的。

17 要順服引導你們的人,因為他們為你們的靈魂時刻警醒,將來要向上帝交帳。你們要聽從他們,使他們滿心喜樂地盡此職責,不致憂愁,否則對你們毫無益處。

18 請為我們禱告,因為我們自信良心無愧,凡事都願意遵行正道。 19 也請你們特別為我禱告,使我能夠早日回到你們那裡。

祝福與問安

20 願賜平安的上帝,就是那位憑著立永恆之約的血使群羊的大牧人——我主耶穌從死裡復活的上帝, 21 在各樣善事上成全你們,好使你們遵行祂的旨意,並藉著主耶穌在你們心中動工,使你們做祂喜悅的事!願榮耀歸給上帝,直到永永遠遠。阿們!

22 弟兄姊妹,我簡短地寫信給你們,希望你們聽我勸勉的話。 23 你們知道,我們的弟兄提摩太已經被釋放了。如果他及時來到,我會與他一起去看你們。

24 請代我問候所有帶領你們的人以及眾聖徒。從義大利來的人也問候你們。

25 願恩典與你們眾人同在!

Hebrews 13

Concluding Exhortations

1Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,

“Never will I leave you;
    never will I forsake you.”[a]

So we say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
    What can mere mortals do to me?”[b]

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so. 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.

11 The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. 14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.

15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

17 Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.

18 Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way. 19 I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.

Benediction and Final Greetings

20 Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

22 Brothers and sisters, I urge you to bear with my word of exhortation, for in fact I have written to you quite briefly.

23 I want you to know that our brother Timothy has been released. If he arrives soon, I will come with him to see you.

24 Greet all your leaders and all the Lord’s people. Those from Italy send you their greetings.

25 Grace be with you all.
