Hebrews 6:9–12; Hebrews 10:35–39

Though we speak in this way, yet in your case, beloved, we feel sure of better thingsthings that belong to salvation. 10 For zGod is not unjust so as to overlook ayour work and the love that you have shown for his name in bserving the saints, as you still do. 11 And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance cof hope until the end, 12 so that you may not be sluggish, but dimitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.


35 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has xa great reward. 36 For yyou have need of endurance, so that zwhen you have done the will of God you may areceive what is promised. 37 For,

bYet a little while,

and cthe coming one will come and will not delay;

38  dbut my righteous one shall live by faith,

and if he shrinks back,

my soul has no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
