1 Therefore leaving the doctrine of the first principles of Messiah, let us press on to perfection -- not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, of faith toward 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 of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 2 instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
3 This will we do, if God permits. 3 And God permitting, we will do so.
4 For concerning those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Ruach HaKodesh, 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 tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age,
6 and then fell away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance; seeing they crucify the Son of God for themselves again, and put him to open 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 the land which has drunk the rain that comes often on it, and brings forth a crop suitable for them for whose sake it is also tilled, receives 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 but if it bears thorns and thistles, it is rejected and near a curse, whose end is to be burned. 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 But, beloved, we are persuaded of better things for you, and things that accompany salvation, though we speak like this, 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, so as to forget your work and the labor of love which you shown toward his name, in that you served the holy ones, and still do serve them. 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 We desire that each one of you may show the same diligence to the fullness of hope even to 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 you won't be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherited 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 when God made a promise to Avraham, since he could swear by none greater, he swore 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, "Most surely I will bless you, and I will surely multiply you." 14 saying, "I will surely bless you and give you many descendants."
15 Thus, having patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
16 For men indeed swear by a greater one, and in every dispute of theirs the oath is final for confirmation. 16 Men swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument.
17 Wherein God, being determined to show more abundantly to the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, interposed with 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 by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have a strong encouragement, who have fled for refuge to take hold of 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, a hope both sure and steadfast and entering into that which is within the veil; 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain,
20 where as a forerunner Yeshua entered for us, having become a Kohen Gadol forever after the order of Malki-Tzedek. 20 where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
