Bible Commentary for Hebrews 13:17
Wesley's Notes for Hebrews
13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you - The word implies also, that lead or guide you; namely, in truth and holiness. And submit yourselves - Give up (not your conscience or judgment, but) your own will, in all things purely indifferent. For they watch over your souls - With all zeal and diligence, they guard and caution you against all danger. As they that must give account - To the great Shepherd, for every part of their behaviour toward you. How vigilant then ought every pastor to be! How careful of every soul committed to his charge! That they may do this - Watch over you. With joy and not with groans - He is not a good shepherd, who does not either rejoice over them, or groan for them. The groans of other creatures are heard: how much more shall these come up in the ears of God ! Whoever answers this character of a Christian pastor may undoubtedly demand this obedience.

The word communicate literally means to share and participate in. Think about other words that start the same way. Communion, community, common union, to have a sharing in. A participation. When the king James was translated they some of the same words we use today had quite a different meaning back then.

Why does kjv use communicate when other versions use a very different "sharing " which contextually seems to be as in sharing resources. Obviously communicate seems to mean transferring a message . What did the original script convey?
