Hebrews 6:8-18

RHE 8 But that which bringeth forth thorns and briers is reprobate and very near unto a curse: whose end is to be burnt. NIV 8 But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned. RHE 9 But, my dearly beloved, we trust better things of you, and nearer to salvation; though we speak thus. NIV 9 Even though we speak like this, dear friends, we are confident of better things in your case--things that accompany salvation. RHE 10 For God is not unjust, that he should forget your work and the love which you have shewn in his name, you who have ministered and do minister to the saints. NIV 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. RHE 11 And we desire that every one of you shew forth the same carefulness to the accomplishing of hope unto the end: NIV 11 We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. RHE 12 That you become not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience shall inherit the promises. NIV 12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. RHE 13 For God making promises to Abraham, because he had no one greater by whom he might swear, swore by himself, NIV 13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, RHE 14 Saying: Unless blessing I shall bless thee and multiplying I shall multiply thee. NIV 14 saying, "I will surely bless you and give you many descendants." RHE 15 And so patiently enduring he obtained the promise. NIV 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised. RHE 16 For men swear by one greater than themselves: and an oath for confirmation is the end of all their controversy. NIV 16 Men swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument. RHE 17 Wherein God, meaning more abundantly to shew to the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, interposed an oath: NIV 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. RHE 18 That by two immutable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have the strongest comfort, we who have fled for refuge to hold fast the hope set before us. NIV 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.
