1 G1352 Therefore, G863 having left G3588 the G3588 [2of the G746 3beginning G3588 4of the G5547 5Christ G3056 1matter], G1909 [2unto G3588 3the G5047 4perfection G5342 1we should bear on], G3361 not G3825 [2again G2310 3a foundation G2598 1casting down] G3341 of repentance G575 from G3498 dead G2041 works, G2532 and G4102 of belief G1909 upon G2316 God,
2 G909 [2of immersions G1322 1 of the teaching], G1936 and of laying on G5037 G5495 of hands, G386 and of resurrection G5037 G3498 of the dead, G2532 and G2917 [2judgment G166 1eternal].
4 G102 For it is impossible G1063 G3588 of the ones G530 once G5461 enlightened, G1089 having tasted G5037 also G3588 of the G1431 [2gift G3588 G2032 1heavenly], G2532 and G3353 [2partakers G1096 1becoming G4151 4spirit G39 3of holy],
5 G2532 and G2570 [2 the good G1089 1having tasted G2316 4of God G4487 3word], G1411 and of powers G5037 G3195 [2about to be G165 1of the eon],
6 G2532 and G3895 having fallen, G3825 again G340 to renew G1519 to G3341 repentance; G388 crucifying again G1438 to themselves G3588 the G5207 son G3588 G2316 of God, G2532 and G3856 making an example of him.
7 G1093 For the earth G1063 G3588 G4095 having drunk G3588 the G1909 [4upon G1473 5it G4178 3often G2064 2coming G5205 1rain], G2532 and G5088 giving birth to G1008 [2pasturage G2111 1fit] G1565 for those G1223 through G3739 whom G2532 also G1090 it is cultivated, G3335 shares G2129 of the blessing G575 from G3588 G2316 God;
8 G1627 but that bringing forth G1161 G173 thorn-bushes G2532 and G5146 thistles G96 is rejected, G2532 and G2671 [2a curse G1451 1near to], G3739 whose G3588 G5056 end G1519 is for G2740 burning.
9 G3982 But we are persuaded G1161 G4012 concerning G1473 you, G27 beloved, G3588 of better things, G2908 G2532 and G2192 having G4991 deliverance, G1499 if even G3779 thus G2980 we speak.
10 G3756 [3 is not G1063 1For G94 4unjust G3588 G2316 2God] G1950 to forget G3588 G2041 your work G1473 G2532 and G3588 the G2873 toil G3588 of the G26 love G3739 which G1731 you demonstrated G1519 in G3588 G3686 his name, G1473 G1247 having served G3588 to the G39 holy ones, G2532 and G1247 still serving.
11 G1937 But we desire G1161 G1538 each G1473 of you G3588 [2the G1473 3same G1731 1to demonstrate] G4710 diligence G4314 to G3588 the G4136 full assurance G3588 of the G1680 hope G891 as far as until G5056 the end;
12 G2443 that G3361 [2not G3576 4dull G1096 1you should 3become], G3402 but imitators G1161 G3588 of the ones G1223 through G4102 belief G2532 and G3115 long-suffering G2816 inheriting G3588 the G1860 promises.
13 G3588 For to G1063 G* Abraham G1861 God having promised, G3588 G2316 G1893 since G2596 according to G3762 no one G2192 had he G3173 greater G3660 to swear an oath by, G3660 swore an oath G2596 according to G1438 himself,
14 G3004 saying, G2229 Assuredly G2127 blessing G2127 I will bless G1473 you, G2532 and G4129 multiplying G4129 I will multiply G1473 you.
15 G2532 And G3779 thus, G3114 having been long-suffering, G2013 he succeeded in G3588 the G1860 promise.
16 G444 [2men G3303 3indeed G1063 1For G2596 5by G3588 6the G3173 7greater G3660 4swear an oath], G2532 and G3956 [6in all G1473 7disputes to them G485 G4009 3 is an end G1519 4for G951 5security G3588 1the G3727 2oath].
17 G1722 In G3739 which G4053 [2more extra G1014 3wanting G3588 G2316 1God] G1925 to display G3588 to the G2818 heirs G3588 of the G1860 promise G3588 the G276 immutability G3588 G1012 of his counsel, G1473 G3315 mediated G3727 by an oath;
18 G2443 that G1223 through G1417 two G4229 [2things G276 1immutable], G1722 (in G3739 which G102 it was impossible G5574 for God to lie,) G2316 G2478 [2strong G3874 3consolation G2192 1we should have], G3588 we the ones G2703 taking refuge G2902 to hold to G3588 the G4295 [2situated before us G1680 1hope],
19 G3739 which hope G5613 [2as G45 3an anchor G2192 1we have] G3588 of the G5590 soul, G804 both safe G5037 G2532 and G949 firm, G2532 and G1525 entering G1519 into G3588 the G2082 inner G3588 G2665 veil;
