Hebrews 61 Wherefore leaving ▼ the doctrine of the first principles of Christ, let us press on unto ▼
▼ 2perfection; not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, ▼
▼ 1) Gr the word of the beginning of Christ 2) Or full growth2 ▼ of the teaching of ▼
▼ 2baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. ▼
▼ 1) Some ancient authorities read, even the teaching of 2) Or washings3 And this will we do, if God permit. 4 For as touching those who were once enlightened ▼ and tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, ▼
▼ 1) Or having both tasted of…and being made…and having tasted etc5 and ▼ tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come, ▼
▼ 1) Or tasted the word of God that it is good6 and then fell away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance; ▼ seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. ▼
▼ 1) Or the while7 For the land which hath drunk the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them for whose sake it is also tilled, receiveth blessing from God: 8 but if it beareth thorns and thistles, it is rejected and nigh unto a curse; whose end is to be burned. 9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that ▼ accompany salvation, though we thus speak: ▼
▼ 1) Or belong to10 for God is not unrighteous to forget your work and the love which ye showed toward his name, in that ye ministered unto the saints, and still do minister. 11 And we desire that each one of you may show the same diligence unto the ▼ fulness of hope even to the end: ▼
▼ 1) Or full assurance12 that ye be not sluggish, but imitators of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. 13 For when God made promise to Abraham, since he could swear by none greater, he sware by himself, 14 saying, ▼ Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. ▼
▼ 1) Ge 22:16 f15 And thus, having patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 16 For men swear by the greater: and in every dispute of theirs the oath is final for confirmation. 17 Wherein God, being minded to show more abundantly unto the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, ▼ interposed with an oath; ▼
▼ 1) Gr mediated18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have a strong encouragement, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us: 19 which we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and stedfast and entering into that which is within the veil; 20 whither as a forerunner Jesus entered for us, having become a high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
