THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE HEBREWS - Chapter 13 - Verse 5

Verse 5. Let your conversation. Your conduct—for so the word conversation is used in the Scriptures. See Barnes "Php 1:27".

 

Be without covetousness. See Barnes "Eph 5:3"; See Barnes "Col 3:5".

 

And be to content with such things as ye have. See Barnes "Php 4:11,12"; See Barnes "Mt 6:25, seq. The particular reason here given for contentment is, that God has promised never to leave his people. Compare with this the beautiful argument of the Saviour in Mt 6:25, seq.

For he hath said. That is, God has said.

I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. See De 31:6; Jos 1:5; 1 Ch 28:20. Substantially the same expression is found in each of those places, and all of them contain the principle on which the apostle here relies, that God will not forsake his people.
