He that despised Moses' law, died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
Of how much more severe punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, by which he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite to the Spirit of grace?

[It is] a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
