SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:18

¶ Orad por nosotros, porque confío que tenemos buena conciencia, deseando conversar bien en todo.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 13:18

Verse 18.
Pray for us] Even the success of apostles depended, in a certain way, on the prayers of the Church. Few Christian congregations feel, as they ought, that it is their bounden duty to pray for the success of the Gospel, both among themselves and in the world. The Church is weak, dark, poor, and imperfect, because it prays little.

We trust we have a good conscience] We are persuaded that we have a conscience that not only acquits us of all fraud and sinister design, but assures us that in simplicity and godly sincerity we have laboured to promote the welfare of you and of all mankind.

To live honestly.] en pasi kalwv qelontev anastrefesqai? Willing in all things to conduct ourselves well - to behave with decency and propriety.

John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 18. Pray for us , etc..] Who are in the ministry; your guides and governors; since the work is of so much moment, and so arduous and awful, and you have such a concern in it; (see Gill on 2 Thessalonians 3:1). for we trust we have a good conscience ; there is a conscience in every man, but it is naturally evil: a good conscience is a conscience sanctified by the Spirit of God, and sprinkled by the blood of Jesus; here it chiefly respects the upright discharge of it in the ministerial work: this the apostle often asserts, and appeals to, and which he here expresses with modesty, and yet with confidence; and which he uses as an argument for prayer for them: in all things willing to live honestly ; not only as men, but as ministers; faithfully dispensing the word of truth, without any regard to the favour or frowns of men, as good stewards of the mysteries of God; which contains in it another reason for prayer: the phrase, in all things, is so placed, that it may be read in connection with either clause; and the sense is either that they exercised a good conscience in all things, in which they were concerned with God, or man, and among all persons, Jews and Gentiles; or that they were willing to live honestly in every respect, as men, Christians, and ministers.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 16-21 - We must, according to our power, give to the necessities of the
soul and bodies of men: God will accept these offerings with pleasure, an will accept and bless the offerers through Christ. The apostle the states what is their duty to living ministers; to obey and submit to them, so far as is agreeable to the mind and will of God, made known in his word. Christians must not think themselves too wise, too good, or too great, to learn. The people must search the Scriptures, and so fa as the ministers teach according to that rule, they ought to receiv their instructions as the word of God, which works in those tha believe. It is the interest of hearers, that the account their ministers give of them may be with joy, and not with grief. Faithfu ministers deliver their own souls, but the ruin of a fruitless an faithless people will be upon their own heads. The more earnestly the people pray for their ministers, the more benefit they may expect from their ministry. A good conscience has respect to all God's commands and all our duty. Those who have this good conscience, yet need the prayers of others. When ministers come to a people who pray for them they come with greater satisfaction to themselves, and success to the people. We should seek all our mercies by prayer. God is the God of peace, fully reconciled to believers; who has made a way for peace an reconciliation between himself and sinners, and who loves peace of earth, especially in his churches. He is the Author of spiritual peac in the hearts and consciences of his people. How firm a covenant is that which has its foundation in the blood of the Son of God! The perfecting of the saints in every good work, is the great thing desire by them, and for them; and that they may at length be fitted for the employment and happiness of heaven. There is no good thing wrought in us, but it is the work of God. And no good thing is wrought in us by God, but through Christ, for his sake and by his Spirit.
