Jesus Christ is (A)the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be (B)led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, (C)not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them. 10 We have an altar (D)from which those who serve the tent[a] have no right to eat. 11 For (E)the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy places by the high priest as a sacrifice for sin are burned (F)outside the camp. 12 So Jesus also (G)suffered (H)outside the gate in order to sanctify the people (I)through his own blood. 13 Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear (J)the reproach he endured. 14 For (K)here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. 15 (L)Through him then let us continually offer up (M)a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, (N)the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. 16 Do not neglect to do good and (O)to share what you have, for such (P)sacrifices are pleasing to God.

17 Obey (Q)your leaders and submit to them, (R)for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to (S)give an account. (T)Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

18 (U)Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a clear conscience, desiring to act honorably in all things. 19 I urge you the more earnestly to do this in order (V)that I may be restored to you the sooner.


20 Now (W)may the God of peace (X)who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, (Y)the great shepherd of the sheep, by (Z)the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 (AA)equip you with everything good that you may do his will, (AB)working in us[b] that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, (AC)to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
