Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of the Messiah (haMashiach), let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward יהוה (YHWH),
2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
3 And this will we do, if יהוה (YHWH) permit.
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit (Ruach haQodesh),
5 And have tasted the good word of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), and the powers of the world to come,
6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the B47Humanity of El (YHWH) afresh, and put Him to an open shame.
7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh often upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God (Elohim);
8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is near unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. – Gen. 3:17–18
9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.
10 For יהוה (YHWH) is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which you have shewed toward His name, in that you have ministered to the holy ones, and do minister.
11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end;
12 That you be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
13 For when יהוה (YHWH) made promise to Avraham, because He could swear by no greater, He sware by Himself, – Gen. 22:16
14 Saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” – Gen. 22:17
15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
16 For men verily swear by the greater; and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.
17 Wherein יהוה (YHWH), willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath;
18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for יהוה (YHWH) to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even YHWH, made a High Priest (Kohen Gadol) forever after the order of Melchisedec. – Psa. 110:4
