Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore we bringing in a word of the beginning of Christ, be we born to the perfection of him, not again laying the foundament of penance from dead works, and of the faith to God, [+Therefore we leaving a while the word of the beginning of Christ, be born to the perfection, not again laying the foundament of penance from dead works, and of faith to 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 and of teaching of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of rising again of dead men, and of everlasting doom. 2 instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
3 And this thing we shall do, if God shall suffer. 3 And God permitting, we will do so.
4 But it is impossible, that they that be once lightened [them that once be illumined], and have tasted also an heavenly gift, and be made partners of the Holy Ghost, 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 nevertheless have tasted the good word of God, and the virtues of the world to coming [and virtues of the world to come], 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age,
6 and be slid far away, that they be renewed again to penance. Which again crucify to themselves the Son of God, and have him to scorn. 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 earth that drinketh rain oft coming on it, and bringeth forth suitable herb to them of which it is tilled [Forsooth the earth drinking rain oft coming upon it, and bringing forth covenable herb to them of whom it is tilled], taketh blessing of 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 that that is bringing forth thorns and briers, is reprovable, and next to curse, whose ending shall be into 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 But, ye most dear-worthy, we trust of you better things, and near(er) to health, though we speak so. 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 unjust, that he forget your work and love, which ye have showed in his name; for ye have ministered to saints, and minister. 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 covet that each of you show the same busyness to the filling of hope [to the full-filling of hope] into 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 be not made slow, but also followers of them, which by faith and patience shall inherit 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 God promising to Abraham, for he had none greater, by whom he should swear, 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 and said [saying], I blessing shall bless thee, and I multiplying shall multiply thee; 14 saying, "I will surely bless you and give you many descendants."
15 and so he long abiding had the promise. [and so he long suffering got repromission.] 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
16 For men swear by a greater than themselves, and the end of all their plea [and the end of all their controversy, or debate,] is an oath to confirmation. 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 thing God willing to show plenteouslier to the heirs of his promise the firmness of his counsel, put betwixt an oath, [+In which thing God willing to show plenteouslier to the heirs of his promise the unmoveableness, or firmness, of his counsel, put between 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 things unmoveable, by which it is impossible that God lie, we have a strongest solace, that flee together to hold the hope that is put forth to us. [+that by two things unmoveable, by which it is impossible God for to lie, we have strongest solace, or comfort, which flee together to hold the hope put forth.] 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 hope as an anchor we have secure to the soul, and firm, and going into the inner things of hiding; 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain,
20 where the before-goer, Jesus, that is made bishop without end by the order of Melchisedec, entered for us. [where the fore-goer for us entered in, Jesus, made bishop into without end after the order of Melchisedec.] 20 where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
