Therefore we must pay the closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.
For if the message declared by angels was valid and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution,
how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard him,
while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his own will.
