Hebrews 13:1 Let brotherly love continue.

Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers.(original for 'entertain strangers' is 'be hospitable to those you have yet to know well': 1John 4:7,20). For thereby some have entertained angels unawares.(1, 2).

Hebrews 13:3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them, and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

Hebrews 13:4.Marriage is honourable in all and the bed undefiled; but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Hebrews 13:4.Marriage is honourable in all.(all what?; same original is in verse 18 below).and the bed undefiled.(God is no prude; He created our sex parts, sex drives and desires); but whoremongers.(original is 'male prostitute'; using sex to selfish extremes, i.e. for money).and adulterers God will judge..(before getting all religious {fear of retribution} here, understand about judging)

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness and be content with such things as you have. For he has said,.I will never leave you, nor forsake you..(closer to the original '...I will not send you away, abandoning you' or in our vernacular 'I'll never get fed up with you and use that as an excuse to send you away from me or walk away from you':.Matthew 11:28-30; Romans 8:35-39; so really, how close is God? Be content with what you have, because if you have God, you really have everything)

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation.(word 'conversation' is old English for 'conduct').be without covetousness and be content.(original means 'possessed of unfailing strength, to be strong, to defend, ward off'; you are content when no matter what circumstance you may now be in, God is with you' it does not mean be content that you have horrible circumstances in your life).with such things as you have. For he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.(1Chronicles 28:20; Luke 15:10-32; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 3:20; Hebrews 7:25; 1Peter 1:5; similar promises are:.Romans 8:35,38,39; Jude 1:1; 1:24; Genesis 28:15; Deuteronomy 31:6; 1Chronicles 28:20; Joshua 1:5; Psalms 46:1,5; Isaiah 41:10; 43:2; 63:9)..("You are that one whom the Creator has seen in you, whom He has created in you. However, you are also the one who wants the Creator to personify Himself with His acts in that infinity in which you see yourself. The Creator who is present in you is that Creator who is moving together with you in each of your actions."....Grigori Grabovoi)

Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule.(original 'lead you' or 'those who have guided you').over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God, whose faith follow.(follow others' faith; doesn't say one is under obligation to follow some control freak's totalitarian rules), considering the end of their conversation.('conversation' is an old English word for 'conduct').

Hebrews 13:8.Emmanuel the Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever.

Because Christ is of and came from the Father-Creator.(John 8:42), both are of the love that is forever.(1John 4:8-16).and both are unchangeable in this.(Malachi 3:6), so we can have confidence:.Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews 3:6,14; 1John 5:14,15.

Hebrews 13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats.(referring to the practice of belief that if one sacrificed an animal {as in Old Testament times} for their sins, they would psychologically feel better:.Hebrews 10:4), which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

Hebrews 13:11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.

Hebrews 13:12 Wherefore Emmanuel also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

Hebrews 13:13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach..(?)

Hebrews 13:14 For here have we no continuing city but we seek one to come.

Hebrews 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name..(?)

Hebrews 13:16 But to do good and to communicate.(original 'be partaker with others', 'to share in their lives' and to do this, one needs to be generous both with his time and his resources; this original word here translated "communicate", is translated elsewhere as "contribution" {Romans 15:26} and "distribution" {2Corinthians 9:13}).forget not. For with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Hebrews 13:17 Obey.(original 'allow yourself to be persuaded by').them that have the rule over you.(on 'rule over you', see verse 7 above).and submit.(that is be willing to learn from them, but be sure to check out what they say if there's even the slightest doubt in your mind:.Acts 17:11).yourselves. For they watch for your souls.(one has to decide if this is true:.Matthew 7:16; why?.1John 4:1), as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy and not with grief.(1Peter 2:13). For that is unprofitable for you.

Hebrews 13:18 Pray for us; for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things.('in all' is same original as verse 4; word 'things' in this verse added but implied; also implied  in verse 4).willing to live honestly.

Hebrews 13:20 Now the God of peace, that brought from the dead our Lord.Emmanuel, that great shepherd of the sheep.(John 10:14,15; 10:27), through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

Note that Emmanuel was brought from the dead by means of the blood; you too are brought from that state.(*).into the same future Emmanuel is again in:.John 17:5,6; 1John 1:7; Hebrews 9:12.

Hebrews 13:21.Perfect.you.(as is the original), to be perfectly fit in every good work. This is doing his will and enabling him to work in you.(Ephesians 2:10; Hebrews 10:14).that which is well pleasing in his sight.(Creator-Father's sight; what was well pleasing to the Father?.Mattthew 3:17; John 17:23,26), through Emmanuel the Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Original Greek.Interlinear.(word for word):.'you are always in a state of perfection regarding your works of good into which do construct will pleasure into which Him bring forth through Emmanuel the Christ who these opinion, honor, glory into which forever and ever amen.'

Paraphrased:.'You bring forth the perfect state of Emmanuel the Christ in you by doing good works and by so doing, thereby glorify and give honor to Him forever whose spiritual realm you are now in (1Corinthians 3:16):.Proverbs 11:18; Hebrews 13:16; 6:10.
