Hebrews 6
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1For this reason, having left the word of the beginning of the Christ, we may advance to perfection, not laying again a foundation of conversion from dead works, and of faith on God, 2of the teaching of immersions, also of laying on of hands, also of [the] resurrection of the dead, and of continuous judgment, 3and this we will do, if God may permit, 4for [it is] impossible for those once enlightened, having also tasted of the heavenly gift, and having become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5and tasted the good saying of God, also the powers of the coming age, 6and having fallen away, to renew [them] again to conversion, having crucified to themselves the Son of God again, and exposed to public shame. 7For the earth, having drunk in the rain coming on it many times, and is bringing forth herbs fit for those because of whom it is also dressed, partakes of blessing from God, 8but that which is bearing thorns and briers [is] disapproved of, and near to cursing, whose end [is] for burning;

9but we are persuaded, concerning you, beloved, the things that are better, and accompanying salvation, though even thus we speak, 10for God is not unrighteous to forget your work, and the labor of love that you showed to His Name, having ministered to the holy ones and ministering; 11and we desire each one of you to show the same diligence, to the full assurance of the hope to the end, 12that you may not become slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patient endurance are inheriting the promises.

13For God, having made promise to Abraham, seeing He was not able to swear by [any] greater, swore by Himself, 14saying, “Blessing I will indeed bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you”; 15and so, having patiently endured, he obtained the promise; 16for men swear by the greater, and the oath [is] for confirmation of the end of all their controversy, 17in which God, more abundantly willing to show to the heirs of the promise the immutability of His counsel, interposed by an oath, 18that through two immutable things, in which [it is] impossible for God to lie, we may have a strong comfort, having fled for refuge, to lay hold on the hope being set before [us], 19which we have, as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and entering into that within the veil, 20to where a forerunner entered for us—Jesus, having become Chief Priest throughout the age after the order of Melchizedek.
