Hebrews 6 (PKJV)

From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Therefore, leaving the elementary principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,
  • 2 of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
  • 3 And this we will do if God permits.
  • 4 Because, it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit,
  • 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
  • 6 if they shall fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
  • 7 Because, the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God;
  • 8 but that which bears thorns and briers is rejected and is near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.
  • 9 But, beloved, we are persuaded of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner.
  • 10 Because, God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
  • 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end,
  • 12 that you do not become slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
  • 13 Because, when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself,
  • 14 saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.”
  • 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
  • 16 Because, men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute.
  • 17 In this way, God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath,
  • 18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
  • 19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that which is behind the veil,
  • 20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
