Hebrews 6:1–12

The Peril of Falling Away

1 Therefore aleaving bthe 1elementary teaching about the 2Christ, let us press on to 3cmaturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from ddead works and of faith toward God,

2 of ainstruction about washings and blaying on of hands, and the cresurrection of the dead and ceternal judgment.

3 And this we will do, aif God permits.

4 For in the case of those who have once been aenlightened and have tasted of bthe heavenly gift and have been made cpartakers of the Holy Spirit,

5 and ahave tasted the good bword of God and the powers of cthe age to come,

6 and then have fallen away, it is aimpossible to renew them again to repentance, 1bsince they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.

7 For ground that drinks the rain which often 1falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those afor whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God;

8 but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and aclose 1to being cursed, and 2it ends up being burned.

Better Things for You

9 But, abeloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that 1accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way.

10 For aGod is not unjust so as to forget byour work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having cministered and in still ministering to the 1saints.

11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence 1so as to realize the afull assurance of bhope until the end,

12 so that you will not be sluggish, but aimitators of those who through bfaith and patience cinherit the promises.
