King James Version

Hebrews 13:1-25

1Let brotherly love continue. 2Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. 3Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. 4Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. 5Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

7Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. 8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. 10We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle. 11For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. 12Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. 13Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. 14For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. 15By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 17Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

18Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly. 19But I beseech you the rather to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner. 20Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 22And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in few words. 23Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you. 24Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you. 25Grace be with you all. Amen.

Huduma Inayompendeza Mungu

Pia wakumbukeni wale wanaotendewa vibaya, kana kwamba ni ninyi wenyewe mnateswa.

413:4 Mal 2:15; 1Kor 7:38; 1Tim 4:3; Kum 22:22; 1Kor 6:9; Efe 5:5; Ufu 22:15Ndoa na iheshimiwe na watu wote, nayo malazi yawe safi, kwa kuwa Mungu atawahukumu wazinzi na waasherati wote. 513:5 1Tim 3:3; Flp 4:11; Kum 31:6, 8; Yos 1:5; Mwa 28:15; Mt 6:25, 34; 1Nya 28:20; Za 37:25Yalindeni maisha yenu msiwe na tabia ya kupenda fedha, bali mridhike na vile mlivyo navyo, kwa sababu Mungu amesema,

“Kamwe sitakuacha,

wala sitakupungukia.”

613:6 Za 27:1; 56:4; 118:6Kwa hiyo tunaweza kusema kwa ujasiri,

“Bwana ni msaada wangu; sitaogopa.

Mwanadamu anaweza kunitenda nini?”

713:7 Ebr 13:17, 24; 1Kor 16:16; Ebr 4:12; 6:12Wakumbukeni viongozi wenu, wale waliowaambia neno la Mungu. Angalieni matokeo ya mwenendo wa maisha yao mkaiige imani yao. 813:8 Yn 8:58; Ebr 1:12; Za 102:27; Ufu 1:4Yesu Kristo ni yeye yule jana, leo na hata milele.

913:9 Efe 4:14; Kol 2:7; 2:16; Ebr 9:10; Rum 14:17; 1Yn 4:1; 1Tim 4:3Msichukuliwe na kila aina ya mafundisho ya kigeni. Ni vyema mioyo yenu iimarishwe kwa neema, wala si kwa sheria kuhusu utaratibu wa vyakula, ambavyo havina faida kwa wale wanaozishika hizo sheria. 1013:10 1Kor 9:13; 10:18Sisi tunayo madhabahu ambayo wale wanaohudumu katika hema hawana haki ya kula vile vitu vilivyowekwa juu yake.

1113:11 Law 16:15; Kut 29:14; Law 4:12; 9:11; 16:27; Hes 19:3Kuhani mkuu huchukua damu ya wanyama na kuiingiza Patakatifu pa Patakatifu, kama sadaka ya dhambi, lakini miili ya hao wanyama huteketezwa nje ya kambi. 1213:12 Yn 19:17, 18; Mdo 7:58; Efe 5:26; Rum 3:25Vivyo hivyo, Yesu naye aliteswa nje ya lango la mji ili awatakase watu kwa damu yake mwenyewe. 1313:13 Lk 9:23; Ebr 11:26; 1Pet 4:14Kwa hiyo, basi na tumwendee nje ya kambi, tukiichukua aibu aliyobeba. 1413:14 Mik 2:10; Flp 3:20Kwa kuwa hapa hatuna mji udumuo, bali tunautafuta ule ujao.

1513:15 1Pet 2:5; Isa 57:19; Hos 14:2; Efe 5:20; Law 7:12; Za 50:14, 23; 107:22; 116:17; Hos 14:2Basi kwa njia ya Yesu, tuzidi kumtolea Mungu dhabihu ya sifa, yaani matunda ya midomo inayolikiri Jina lake. 1613:16 Rum 12:13; Flp 4:18; 1Kor 9:12; Ebr 6:10Na msiache kutenda mema na kushirikiana vile vitu mlivyo navyo, kwa kuwa dhabihu kama hizo ndizo zinazompendeza Mungu.

1713:17 Isa 62:6; Mdo 20:28; Ebr 13:7, 24; Flp 2:29; 1The 5:12; 1Tim 5:17; Eze 3:17; 33:2, 7; Mdo 20:26Watiini viongozi wenu na kujinyenyekeza chini ya mamlaka yao. Kwa maana wao wanakesha kwa ajili yenu kama watu watakaopaswa kutoa hesabu. Watiini ili wafanye kazi yao kwa furaha, wala si kama mzigo, maana hiyo haitakuwa na faida kwenu.

1813:18 1The 5:25; Mdo 23:1Tuombeeni. Tuna hakika kuwa tunayo dhamiri safi na shauku ya kuishi kwa uadilifu kwa kila njia. 19Ninawasihi zaidi mniombee ili nipate kurudishwa kwenu upesi.

Maombi Ya Kuwatakia Baraka

20Basi Mungu wa amani, ambaye kwa damu ya Agano la milele alimleta tena kutoka kwa wafu Bwana wetu Yesu, yule Mchungaji Mkuu wa kondoo, 21awafanye ninyi wakamilifu mkiwa mmekamilishwa katika kila jambo jema ili mpate kutenda mapenzi yake, naye atende ndani yetu kile kinachompendeza machoni Pake, kwa njia ya Yesu Kristo, ambaye utukufu una yeye milele na milele. Amen.
