New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
19 Brothers and sisters, we are not afraid to enter the Most Holy Room. We enter boldly because of the blood of Jesus. 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
20 His way is new because he lives. It has been opened for us through the curtain. I'm talking about his body. 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,
21 We also have a great priest over the house of God. 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
22 So let us come near to God with an honest and true heart. Let us come near with a faith that is sure and strong. Our hearts have been sprinkled. Our minds have been cleansed from a sense of guilt. Our bodies have been washed with pure water. 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold firmly to the hope we claim to have. The One who promised is faithful. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
24 Let us consider how we can stir up one another to love. Let us help one another to do good works. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
25 Let us not give up meeting together. Some are in the habit of doing this. Instead, let us cheer each other up with words of hope. Let us do it all the more as you see the day coming when Christ will return. 25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
26 What if we keep sinning on purpose? What if we do it even after we know the truth? Then there is no offering for our sins. 26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,
27 All we can do is to wait in fear for God to judge. His blazing fire will burn up his enemies. 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
28 Anyone who did not obey the law of Moses died without mercy if there were two or three witnesses. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 What should be done to anyone who has hated the Son of God or has said no to him? What should be done to a person who treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that makes him holy? What should be done to someone who has made fun of the Holy Spirit who brings God's grace? Don't you think people like that should be punished more than anyone else? 29 How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?
30 We know the One who said, "I am the One who judges people. I will pay them back."#1(Deuteronomy 32:35)#2 Scripture also says, "The Lord will judge his people."#1(Deuteronomy 32:36; Psalm 135:14)#2 30 For we know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge his people."
31 It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 Remember those earlier days after you received the light. At that time you stood firm in a great struggle. You did it even in the face of suffering. 32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering.
33 Sometimes you were made fun of in front of others. You were treated badly. At other times you stood side by side with people who were being treated like that. 33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated.
34 You suffered together with people in prison. When your property was taken from you, you accepted it with joy. You knew that God had given you better and more lasting things. 34 You sympathized with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.
35 So don't throw away your bold faith. It will bring you rich rewards. 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36 You need to be faithful. Then you will do what God wants. You will receive what he has promised. 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
37 In just a very little while, "The one who is coming will come. He will not wait. 37 For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay.
38 The one who is in the right will live by faith. If he pulls back, I will not be pleased with him." #1(Habakkuk 2:3,4)#2 38 But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him."
39 But we aren't people who pull back and are destroyed. We are people who believe and are saved. 39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.
