1Let ahavat achim (brotherly love) continue. 2Do not neglect hachnosas orchim (hospitality), for by this some without having da'as of it, have entertained malachim. 3Have zikaron of the prisoners in the beis hasohar, as if having been bound with sharsherot (chains) with them; and those being tortured as though you were also. 4Let the marriage Chuppah have respect in the eyes of all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for those guilty of gilui arayot (sexual immorality) and no'afim (adulterers), Hashem will judge. 5Fier zich (comport oneself) in your derech free of chamdanut (covetousness), being content with what you have, for He Himself has said, LO ARPECHA V'LO E'EZVECHA ("I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you" DEVARIM 31:6,8; YEHOSHUA 1:5), 6So that we say with bitachon, HASHEM LI my helper, LO IRA MAH YA'ASEH LI ADAM ("The L-rd is my helper, I will not be afraid. What shall man do to me?"--TEHILLIM 118:6)? 7Remember your manhigim and be machshiv (respect) and mechabed (honor) those who spoke to you the dvar Hashem; and considering the toitzaa (outcome) of their derech, imitate their Emunah. 8Yehoshua--Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach, the same etmol, hayom, ul'Olamim. 9Do not be carried away by various torot zarot; for it is tov for the lev to be given chizzuk by the Chen v'Chesed Hashem, not by okhel through which those who were thus occupied were not benefited. 10We have a Mizbe'ach from which those who serve the Mishkan have no right to eat. 11For the zevakhim whose dahm is brought into the Kodesh HaKodashim by the Kohen Gadol as a Kapparat HaChet are burned outside the makhaneh (camp). 12Therefore, Yehoshua also, that he might make the Am Brit kadoshim through his own dahm, suffered outside the sha'ar. 13So then, let us go out to him outside the makhaneh, bearing the reproach of Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach. 14For we do not have here a lasting Ir HaKodesh, but we seek one to come. 15By him, therefore, let us offer up a zevach todah to Hashem continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving hodayah (thanksgiving) to SHMO ("HIS NAME" ZECHARIAH 6:11-12; 3:8). 16But do not drift away from ma'asim tovim and sharing; for with such zevakhim Hashem is well pleased. 17Obey your manhigim and submit to them; for they are being shomer over your neshamot, as those who have achraius (answerability, accountability) [to Hashem]. Let them do so with simcha and not with agmat nefesh, for that would not be profitable for you. 18Daven tefillos for us, for we are persuaded that we have a clear matzpun (conscience) in everything, wishing to conduct ourselves commendably in all things. 19And I urge you all the more to do this, that I may be restored to you more quickly. 20Now the Elohei Hashalom, who brought up in the Techiyas HaMoshiach, HaRo'eh HaTzon HaGadol, through the Dahm Brit Olam, even Adoneinu, 21May He equip you with every ma'aseh tov in order to do His ratzon, working in us that which is well pleasing in His sight through Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Yehoshua, to whom be kavod l'Olemei Olamim. Omein. 22Now I urge you, Achim b'Moshiach, bear with this dvar hachizzuk, for indeed an iggeret I have written you bekitzur (briefly, concisely). 23Have da'as that our Ach b'Moshiach Timotiyos has been released, with whom if he comes shortly, I will see you. 24Shalom greetings to all your manhigim and all the kadoshim. The ones from Italy send shalom greetings to you. 25Chen v'Chesed Hashem be with all of you. [T.N. MJ 4:15 "tempted in every way as we are, yet without chet." means chet as inborn and immemorial yetzer hara evil inclination which is Chet Kadmon Original Sin whose power and control is passed down to Bnei Adam from Adam, Ro3:9; Ro 5:12-see pages vii-ix on Moshiach Immanu-El Ben HaAlmah uncontaminated by Chet Kadmon].
