Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Wherefore, having left the word of the beginning of the Christ, unto the perfection we may advance, not again a foundation laying of reformation from dead works, and of faith on God, 1 Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God,
2 of the teaching of baptisms, of laying on also of hands, of rising again also of the dead, and of judgment age-during, 2 instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
3 and this we will do, if God may permit, 3 And God permitting, we will do so.
4 for [it is] impossible for those once enlightened, having tasted also of the heavenly gift, and partakers having became of the Holy Spirit, 4 It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,
5 and did taste the good saying of God, the powers also of the coming age, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age,
6 and having fallen away, again to renew [them] to reformation, having crucified again to themselves the Son of God, and exposed to public shame. 6 if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.
7 For earth, that is drinking in the rain many times coming upon it, and is bringing forth herbs fit for those because of whom also it is dressed, doth partake of blessing from God, 7 Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God.
8 and that which is bearing thorns and briers [is] disapproved of, and nigh to cursing, whose end [is] for burning; 8 But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.
9 and we are persuaded, concerning you, beloved, the things that are better, and accompanying salvation, though even thus we speak, 9 Even though we speak like this, dear friends, we are confident of better things in your case--things that accompany salvation.
10 for God is not unrighteous to forget your work, and the labour of the love, that ye shewed to His name, having ministered to the saints and ministering; 10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
11 and we desire each one of you the same diligence to shew, unto the full assurance of the hope unto the end, 11 We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure.
12 that ye may not become slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patient endurance are inheriting the promises. 12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
13 For to Abraham God, having made promise, seeing He was able to swear by no greater, did swear by Himself, 13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself,
14 saying, `Blessing indeed I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee;' 14 saying, "I will surely bless you and give you many descendants."
15 and so, having patiently endured, he did obtain the promise; 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
16 for men indeed do swear by the greater, and an end of all controversy to them for confirmation [is] the oath, 16 Men swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument.
17 in which God, more abundantly willing to shew to the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, did interpose by an oath, 17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.
18 that through two immutable things, in which [it is] impossible for God to lie, a strong comfort we may have who did flee for refuge to lay hold on the hope set before [us], 18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged.
19 which we have, as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and entering into that within the vail, 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain,
20 whither a forerunner for us did enter -- Jesus, after the order of Melchisedek chief priest having become -- to the age. 20 where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
