19Therefore, brethren, since we 1haveconfidence to 2enter the holyplace by the blood of Jesus,
by 3a new and livingwaywhich He inaugurated for us through4the veil, that is, His flesh,
and since we have 5a greatpriest6over the house of God,
let us 7drawnear with a asincereheart in 8fullassurance of faith, having our hearts9sprinkled clean from an evilconscience and our bodies10washed with purewater.
Let us holdfast the 11confession of our 12hopewithoutwavering, for 13He who promised is faithful ;
and let us consider how 14to stimulateoneanother to love and 15gooddeeds,
not forsaking our own16assemblingtogether, as is the habit of some, but 17encouraging one another; and all the more as you see18the daydrawingnear.
For if we go on 19sinningwillfullyafterreceiving20the knowledge of the truth, there nolongerremains a sacrifice for sins,
but a terrifyingexpectation of 21judgment and 22THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILLCONSUME THE ADVERSARIES.
2823Anyone who has setaside the Law of Mosesdieswithoutmercy on the testimony of twoorthreewitnesses.
2924Howmuchsevererpunishment do you think he will deserve25who has trampledunderfoot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean26the blood of the covenant27by which he was sanctified, and has 28insulted the Spirit of grace ?
For we know Him who said, "29VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY." And again, "30THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE."
It is a 31terrifyingthing to fall into the hands of the 32livingGod.
But remember33the formerdays, bwhen , after being 34enlightened, you endured a great35conflict of sufferings,
33partly by being 36made a publicspectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming37sharers with those who were sotreated.
For you 38showedsympathy to the prisoners and accepted39joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves40a betterpossession and a lasting one.
35Therefore, do not throwaway your 41confidence, whichhas a great42reward.
For you haveneed of 43endurance, so that when you have 44done the will of God, you may 45receivecwhat was promised.
3746FOR YET IN A VERYLITTLEWHILE, 47HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME, AND WILL NOT DELAY.
3848BUT MY RIGHTEOUSONE SHALL LIVE BY FAITH ; AND IF HE SHRINKSBACK, MY SOULHASNOPLEASURE IN HIM.
But dwe are not of those who shrinkback to destruction, but of those who have faith to the epreserving of the soul.
