Hebrews 13:1

Brotherly love (piladelpia).
Late word from piladelpov (1 Peter 3:8). See 1 Thessalonians 4:9. It is always in order in a church.

To show love unto strangers (thv piloxeniav).
Old word for hospitality, from piloxenov (1 Timothy 3:2), in N.T. only here and Romans 12:3. In genitive case with epilantaneste (present middle imperative, cf. Hebrews 6:10).

Have entertained angels unawares (elaton xenisantev aggelouv).
Second aorist active indicative of lantanw, old verb to escape notice and first aorist active participle of xenizw, old verb to entertain a guest (xenov, stranger), according to a classic idiom seen with lantanw, tugxanw, ptanw, by which the chief idea is expressed by the participle (supplementary participle), here meaning, "some escaped notice when entertaining angels." The reference is to :; 19 (Abraham and Sarah did this very thing).
