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

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Hebrews 13:22

Commentary on Hebrews 13:22-25

(Read Hebrews 13:22-25)

So bad are men, and even believers, through the remainders of their corruption, that when the most important, comfortable doctrine is delivered to them for their own good, and that with the most convincing evidence, there is need of earnest entreaty and exhortation that they would bear it, and not fall out with it, neglect it, or reject it. It is good to have the law of holy love and kindness written in the hearts of Christians, one towards another. Religion teaches men true civility and good breeding. It is not ill-tempered or uncourteous. Let the favour of God be toward you, and his grace continually working in you, and with you, bringing forth the fruits of holiness, as the first-fruits of glory.
