Better Things for You

9 But, 1beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that aaccompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way. 10 For 2God is not unjust so as to forget 3your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having 4ministered and in still ministering to the bsaints. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence cso as to realize the 5full assurance of 6hope until the end, 12 so that you will not be sluggish, but 7imitators of those who through 8faith and patience 9inherit the promises. 13 For 10when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He 11swore by Himself, 14 saying, "12I WILL SURELY BLESS YOU AND I WILL SURELY MULTIPLY YOU." 15 And so, 13having patiently waited, he obtained the promise. 16 14For men swear by done greater than themselves, and with them 15an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute. 17 eIn the same way God, desiring even more to show to 16the heirs of the promise 17the unchangeableness of His purpose, finterposed with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things in which 18it is impossible for God to lie, we who have gtaken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of 19the hope set before us. 19 hThis 20hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which 21enters iwithin the veil, 20 22where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a 23high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
