For if wesinwilfullyafter that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no moresacrificeforsins,
But a certainfearful looking for of judgmentandfieryindignation, which shalldevour the adversaries.
He that despisedMoses'lawdiedwithoutmercyundertwoorthreewitnesses:
Of how muchsorerpunishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God,and hath counted the blood of the covenant,wherewithhe was sanctified, an unholy thing,and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me,I will recompense, saith the Lord.Andagain, The Lord shall judgehispeople.
It is a fearful thing to fallinto the hands of the livingGod.
