¶ Hebrews 1 v1-14

{ heart }   [HE] 1v1

GOD WHO at sundry times,
and in diverse manners,
spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

{ heart }   [HE] 1v2

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by HIS SON,
WHOM HE hath appointed HEIR of all things,
by WHOM also HE made the worlds,

{ heart }   [HE] 1v3

WHO being the brightness of HIS glory,
and the express image of HIS person,
and upholding all things by the word of HIS power,
when HE had by HIMSELF purged our sins,
sat down on the right hand of the MAJESTY on high,

{ heart }   [HE] 1v4

Being made so much better than the Angels,
as HE hath by inheritance
obtained a more excellent NAME than They.

{ heart }   [HE] 1v5

For unto Which of the Angels said HE at any time,

THOU art MY SON,
this day have I begotten THEE?


And again,

I will be to HIM a FATHER,
and HE shall be to ME a SON?

{ heart }   [HE] 1v6

And again,
when HE bringeth in the FIRST BEGOTTEN
into the world, HE saith,


And let all the Angels of GOD worship HIM.

{ heart }   [HE] 1v7

And of the Angels HE saith,

WHO maketh HIS Angels spirits,
and HIS Ministers a flame of fire.

{ heart }   [HE] 1v8

But unto the SON HE saith,

THY throne, O GOD, is forever and ever:
a scepter of righteousness
is the scepter of THY kingdom.

{ heart }   [HE] 1v9

THOU hast loved righteousness,
and hated iniquity, therefore GOD, even THY GOD
hath anointed THEE with the oil of gladness
above THY fellows.

{ heart }   [HE] 1v10

And, THOU LORD in the beginning
hast laid the foundation of the earth:
and the heavens are the works of THINE hands.

{ heart }   [HE] 1v11

They shall perish, but THOU remainest:
and they all shall wax old as doth a garment.

{ heart }   [HE] 1v12

And as a vesture shalt THOU fold them up,
and they shall be changed,
but THOU art the SAME,
and THY years shall not fail?

{ heart }   [HE] 1v13

But to Which of the Angels said HE at any time,

Sit on MY right hand,
until I make THINE enemies THY footstool?

{ heart }   [HE] 1v14

Are They not all Ministering Spirits,
sent forth to minister for them,
who shall be heirs of salvation?

» Hebrews 2

¶ Hebrews 2 v1-4

{ heart }   [HE] 2v1

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed
to the things which we have heard,
lest at any time we should let them slip.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v2

For if the word spoken by Angels was steadfast,
and every transgression and disobedience
received a just recompense of reward:

{ heart }   [HE] 2v3

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation,
which at the first began to be spoken by the LORD,
and was confirmed unto us by them that heard HIM,

{ heart }   [HE] 2v4

GOD also bearing them witness,
both with signs and wonders,
and with diverse miracles,
and gifts of the HOLY GHOST,
according to HIS OWN will?

¶ Hebrews 2 v5-9

{ heart }   [HE] 2v5

For unto the Angels hath HE not put in subjection
the world to come, whereof we speak.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v6

But one in a certain place testified,
saying,

 ‘What is man, that THOU art mindful of him:
or the son of man that THOU visitest him?’ 

{ heart }   [HE] 2v7

THOU madest him a little lower than the Angels,
THOU crownedst him with glory and honor,
and diddest set him over the works of THY hands.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v8

THOU hast put all things in subjection under his feet.
For in that HE put all in subjection under him,
HE left nothing that is not put under him.
But now we see not yet all things put under him.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v9

But we see JESUS,
WHO was made a little lower than the Angels,
for the suffering of death,
crowned with glory and honor,
that HE by the grace of GOD
should taste death for every man.

¶ Hebrews 2 v10-18

{ heart }   [HE] 2v10

For it became HIM, for WHOM are all things,
and by WHOM are all things,
in bringing many sons unto glory,
to make the CAPTAIN of their salvation perfect
through sufferings.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v11

For both HE that sanctifieth,
and they who are sanctified, are all of one:
for which cause HE is not ashamed to call them


Brethren,

{ heart }   [HE] 2v12

Saying,

I will declare THY NAME unto MY brethren,
in the midst of the church
will I sing praise unto THEE.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v13

And again,

I will put MY trust in HIM:

And again,

Behold, I, and the children
whom GOD hath given ME.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v14

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers
of flesh and blood,
HE also HIMSELF likewise took part of the same,
that through death HE might destroy Him
That had the power of death, That is, the Devil:

{ heart }   [HE] 2v15

And deliver them, who through fear of death
were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v16

For verily HE took not on HIM the nature of Angels:
but HE took on HIM the seed of Abraham.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v17

Wherefore in all things it behooved HIM
to be made like unto HIS brethren, that HE might be
a merciful and faithful HIGH PRIEST,
in things pertaining to GOD,
to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

{ heart }   [HE] 2v18

For in that HE HIMSELF hath suffered,
being tempted,
HE is able to succour them that are tempted.

» Hebrews 3

¶ Hebrews 3 v1-6

{ heart }   [HE] 3v1

Wherefore holy brethren,
partakers of the heavenly calling,
consider the APOSTLE and HIGH PRIEST
of our profession CHRIST JESUS,

{ heart }   [HE] 3v2

WHO was faithful to HIM THAT appointed HIM,
as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v3

For THIS MAN was counted worthy
of more glory than Moses,
inasmuch as HE WHO hath builded the house,
hath more honor than the house.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v4

For every house is builded by some man,
but HE that built all things is GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v5

And Moses verily was faithful in all his house
as a servant, for a testimony of those things
which were to be spoken after.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v6

But CHRIST as a SON over HIS OWN house,
WHOSE house are we, if we hold fast the confidence,
and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

¶ Hebrews 3 v7-19

{ heart }   [HE] 3v7

Wherefore as the HOLY GHOST saith,

Today if ye will hear HIS voice,

{ heart }   [HE] 3v8

Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation,
in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

{ heart }   [HE] 3v9

When your fathers tempted ME,
proved ME, and saw MY works forty years.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v10

Wherefore I was grieved with that generation,
and said,

 ‘They do alway err in their hearts,
and they have not known MY ways.’ 

{ heart }   [HE] 3v11

So I swore in MY wrath:

 ‘They shall not enter into MY rest.’ 

{ heart }   [HE] 3v12

Take heed brethren,
lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief,
in departing from the living GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v13

But exhort one another daily, while it is called ‘Today,’
lest any of you be hardened
through the deceitfulness of sin.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v14

For we are made partakers of CHRIST,
if we hold the beginning of our confidence
steadfast unto the end.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v15

While it is said,

Today if ye will hear HIS voice,
harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

{ heart }   [HE] 3v16

For some when they had heard, did provoke:
howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses?

{ heart }   [HE] 3v17

But with whom was HE grieved forty years?
was it not with them that had sinned,
whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?

{ heart }   [HE] 3v18

And to whom swore HE

That they should not enter into HIS rest,

But to them that believed not?

{ heart }   [HE] 3v19

So we see that they could not enter in
because of unbelief.

» Hebrews 4

¶ Hebrews 4 v1-10

{ heart }   [HE] 4v1

Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us,
of entering into HIS rest,
any of you should seem to come short of it.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v2

For unto us was the Gospel preached,
as well as unto them:
but the word preached did not profit them,
not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v3

For we which have believed do enter into rest,
as HE said,


As I have sworn in MY wrath,
if they shall enter into MY rest,
although the works were finished
from the foundation of the world.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v4

For HE spake in a certain place of the seventh day
on this wise:


And GOD did rest the seventh day
from all HIS works.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v5

And in this place again:

If they shall enter into MY rest.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v6

Seeing therefore it remaineth that some
must enter therein,
and they to whom it was first preached,
entered not in because of unbelief:

{ heart }   [HE] 4v7

Again, HE limiteth a certain day, saying in David,

Today,

After so long a time; as it is said

Today if ye will hear HIS voice,
harden not your hearts.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v8

For if JESUS had given them rest,
then would HE not afterward
have spoken of another day.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v9

There remaineth therefore a rest
to the people of GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v10

For he that is entered into his rest,
he also hath ceased from his own works,
as GOD did from HIS.

¶ Hebrews 4 v11-13

{ heart }   [HE] 4v11

Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest,
lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v12

For the word of GOD is quick and powerful,
and sharper than any two edged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents
of the heart.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v13

Neither is there any creature that is not manifest
in HIS sight: but all things are naked,
and opened unto the eyes of HIM
with WHOM we have to do.

¶ Hebrews 4 v14-16

{ heart }   [HE] 4v14

Seeing then that we have a great HIGH PRIEST,
THAT is passed into the heavens,
JESUS the SON of GOD,
let us hold fast our profession.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v15

For we have not an HIGH PRIEST
WHICH cannot be touched
with the feeling of our infirmities,
but was in all points tempted like as we are,
yet without sin.

{ heart }   [HE] 4v16

Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help in time of need.

» Hebrews 5

¶ Hebrews 5 v1-4

{ heart }   [HE] 5v1

For every high priest taken from among men,
is ordained for men in things pertaining to GOD,
that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v2

Who can have compassion on the ignorant,
and on them that are out of the way,
for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v3

And by reason hereof he ought as for the people,
so also for himself, to offer for sins.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v4

And no man taketh this honor unto himself,
but he that is called of GOD, as was Aaron.

¶ Hebrews 5 v5-10

{ heart }   [HE] 5v5

So also, CHRIST glorified not HIMSELF,
to be made an HIGH PRIEST:
but HE THAT said unto HIM,


THOU art MY SON,
today have I begotten THEE.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v6

As HE saith also in another place,

THOU art a PRIEST forever
after the order of MELCHIZEDEC.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v7

WHO in the days of HIS flesh,
when HE had offered up prayers and supplications,
with strong crying and tears,
unto HIM THAT was able to save HIM from death,
and was heard, in that HE feared.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v8

Though HE were a SON, yet learned HE obedience,
by the things which HE suffered:

{ heart }   [HE] 5v9

And being made perfect,
HE became the AUTHOR of eternal salvation
unto all them that obey HIM,

{ heart }   [HE] 5v10

Called of GOD

An HIGH PRIEST
after the order of MELCHIZEDEC:

¶ Hebrews 5 v11-14

{ heart }   [HE] 5v11

Of WHOM we have many things to say,
and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v12

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers,
ye have need that one teach you again,
which be the first principles of the oracles of GOD,
and are become such as have need of milk,
and not of strong meat.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v13

For every one that useth milk,
is unskillful in the word of righteousness:
for he is a babe.

{ heart }   [HE] 5v14

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age,
even those who by reason of use
have their senses exercised
to discern both good and evil.

» Hebrews 6

¶ Hebrews 6 v1-8

{ heart }   [HE] 6v1

Therefore leaving the principles
of the doctrine of CHRIST,
let us go on unto perfection,
not laying again the foundation of repentance
from dead works, and of faith towards GOD,

{ heart }   [HE] 6v2

Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands,
and of resurrection of the dead,
and of eternal judgment.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v3

And this will we do, if GOD permit.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v4

For it is impossible for those who were
once enlightened,
and have tasted of the heavenly gift,
and were made partakers of the HOLY GHOST,

{ heart }   [HE] 6v5

And have tasted the good word of GOD,
and the powers of the world to come;

{ heart }   [HE] 6v6

If they shall fall away,
to renew them again unto repentance:
seeing they crucify to themselves
the SON of GOD afresh,
and put HIM to an open shame.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v7

For the earth which drinketh in the rain
that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs
meet for them by whom it is dressed,
receiveth blessing from GOD;

{ heart }   [HE] 6v8

But that which beareth thorns and briers,
is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing,
whose end is to be burned.

¶ Hebrews 6 v9-20

{ heart }   [HE] 6v9

But beloved, we are persuaded better things of you,
and things that accompany salvation,
though we thus speak.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v10

For GOD is not unrighteous,
to forget your work and labor of love,
which ye have showed toward HIS NAME,
in that ye have ministered to the Saints,
and do minister.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v11

And we desire,
that every one of you do show the same diligence,
to the full assurance of hope unto the end:

{ heart }   [HE] 6v12

That ye be not slothful, but followers of them
who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v13

For when GOD made promise to Abraham,
because HE could swear by no greater,
HE swore by HIMSELF,

{ heart }   [HE] 6v14

Saying,

Surely, blessing I will bless thee,
and multiplying I will multiply thee.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v15

And so after he had patiently endured,
he obtained the promise.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v16

For men verily swear by the greater,
and an oath for confirmation
is to them an end of all strife.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v17

Wherein GOD willing more abundantly
to show unto the heirs of promise
the immutability of HIS counsel,
confirmed it by an oath:

{ heart }   [HE] 6v18

That by two immutable things,
in which it was impossible for GOD to lie,
we might have a strong consolation,
who have fled for refuge
to lay hold upon the hope set before us.

{ heart }   [HE] 6v19

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul
both sure and steadfast,
and which entereth into that within the veil,

{ heart }   [HE] 6v20

Where the FORERUNNER is for us entered;
even JESUS, made an HIGH PRIEST forever
after the order of MELCHIZEDEC.

» Hebrews 7

¶ Hebrews 7 v1-3

{ heart }   [HE] 7v1

For THIS MELCHIZEDEC KING of Salem,
PRIEST of the MOST HIGH GOD,
WHO met Abraham
returning from the slaughter of the kings,
and blessed him:

{ heart }   [HE] 7v2

To WHOM also Abraham gave a tenth part of all:
first being by interpretation

 ‘KING of righteousness,’ 

And after that also

 ‘KING of Salem,’ 

Which is,

 ‘KING of peace’.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v3

Without father, without mother, without descent,
having neither beginning of days nor end of life:
but made like unto the SON of GOD,
abideth a PRIEST continually.

¶ Hebrews 7 v4-10

{ heart }   [HE] 7v4

Now consider how great THIS MAN was,
unto WHOM even the patriarch Abraham
gave the tenth of the spoils.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v5

And verily they that are of the sons of Levi,
who receive the office of the priesthood,
have a commandment to take tithes of the people
according to the law, that is of their brethren,
though they come out of the loins of Abraham:

{ heart }   [HE] 7v6

But HE WHOSE descent is not counted from them,
received tithes of Abraham,
and blessed him that had the promises.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v7

And without all contradiction
the less is blessed of the BETTER.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v8

And here men that die receive tithes:
but there HE receiveth them,
of WHOM it is witnessed that HE liveth.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v9

And as I may so say,

 ‘Levi also receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham’.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v10

For he was yet in the loins of his father
when MELCHIZEDEC met him.

¶ Hebrews 7 v11-17

{ heart }   [HE] 7v11

If therefore perfection were by
the Levitical priesthood
(for under it the people received the law)
what further need was there,
that another PRIEST should rise
after the order of MELCHIZEDEC,
and not be called after the order of Aaron?

{ heart }   [HE] 7v12

For the priesthood being changed,
there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v13

For HE of WHOM these things are spoken,
pertaineth to another tribe,
of which no man gave attendance at the altar.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v14

For it is evident that our LORD sprang out of Juda,
of which tribe Moses spake nothing
concerning priesthood.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v15

And it is yet far more evident:
for that after the similitude of MELCHIZEDEC
there ariseth another PRIEST,

{ heart }   [HE] 7v16

WHO is made not after the law
of a carnal commandment,
but after the power of an endless life.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v17

For HE testifieth;

THOU art a PRIEST forever,
after the order of MELCHIZEDEC.

¶ Hebrews 7 v18-25

{ heart }   [HE] 7v18

For there is verily a disannulling
of the commandment going before,
for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v19

For the law made nothing perfect,
but the bringing in of a better hope did:
by the which we draw nigh unto GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v20

And inasmuch as not without an oath
HE was made PRIEST,

{ heart }   [HE] 7v21

(For those priests were made without an oath:
but THIS with an oath, by HIM THAT said unto HIM,


The LORD swore and will not repent,

 ‘THOU art a PRIEST forever
after the order of MELCHIZEDEC’)

{ heart }   [HE] 7v22

By so much was JESUS made a surety
of a better testament.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v23

And they truly were many priests,
because they were not suffered to continue
by reason of death.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v24

But THIS MAN because HE continueth ever,
hath an unchangeable priesthood.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v25

Wherefore HE is able also to save them
to the uttermost, that come unto GOD by HIM,
seeing HE ever liveth to make intercession for them.

¶ Hebrews 7 v26-28

{ heart }   [HE] 7v26

For such an HIGH PRIEST became us,
WHO is holy, harmless, undefiled,
separate from sinners,
and made higher than the heavens;

{ heart }   [HE] 7v27

WHO needeth not daily, as those high priests,
to offer up sacrifice,
first for HIS OWN sins and then for the people's:
for this HE did once, when HE offered up HIMSELF.

{ heart }   [HE] 7v28

For the law maketh men high priests
which have infirmity,
but the word of the oath which was since the law,
maketh the SON, WHO is consecrated for evermore.

» Hebrews 8

¶ Hebrews 8 v1-5

{ heart }   [HE] 8v1

Now of the things which we have spoken,
this is the sum: we have such an HIGH PRIEST,
WHO is set on the right hand
of the throne of the MAJESTY in the heavens:

{ heart }   [HE] 8v2

A MINISTER of the sanctuary,
and of the true tabernacle,
which the LORD pitched, and not man.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v3

For every high priest is ordained
to offer gifts and sacrifices:
wherefore it is of necessity
that THIS MAN have somewhat also to offer.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v4

For if HE were on earth, HE should not be a priest,
seeing that there are priests
that offer gifts according to the law:

{ heart }   [HE] 8v5

Who serve unto the example
and shadow of heavenly things,
as Moses was admonished of GOD
when he was about to make the tabernacle.


For see,

Saith HE,

That thou make all things according to the pattern
showed to thee in the mount.

¶ Hebrews 8 v6-13

{ heart }   [HE] 8v6

But now hath HE obtained
a more excellent ministry,
by how much also HE is the MEDIATOR
of a better covenant,
which was established upon better promises.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v7

For if that first covenant had been faultless,
then should no place have been sought
for the second.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v8

For finding fault with them, HE saith,

Behold, the days come,

(Saith the LORD)

When I will make a new covenant
with the house of Israel,
and with the house of Judah.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v9

Not according to the covenant
that I made with their fathers
in the day when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of the land of Egypt,
because they continued not in MY covenant,
and I regarded them not,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v10

For this is the covenant that I will make
with the house of Israel after those days,


Saith the LORD:

I will put MY laws into their mind,
and write them in their hearts:
and I will be to them a GOD,
and they shall be to ME a people.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v11

And they shall not teach every man his neighbor,
and every man his brother, saying,

 ‘Know the LORD;’ 

For all shall know ME,
from the least to the greatest.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v12

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness,
and their sins and their iniquities
will I remember no more.

{ heart }   [HE] 8v13

In that HE saith,

A new covenant,

HE hath made the first old.
Now that which decayeth and waxeth old,
is ready to vanish away.

» Hebrews 9

¶ Hebrews 9 v1-10

{ heart }   [HE] 9v1

Then verily the first covenant
had also ordinances of divine service,
and a worldly sanctuary.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v2

For there was a tabernacle made, the first,
wherein was the candlestick, and the table,
and the showbread, which is called

 ‘The sanctuary’.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v3

And after the second veil, the tabernacle,
which is called

 ‘The holiest of all’:

{ heart }   [HE] 9v4

Which had the golden censer,
and the ark of the covenant
overlaid round about with gold,
wherein was the golden pot that had manna,
and Aaron's rod that budded,
and the tables of the covenant.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v5

And over it the Cherubim of glory
shadowing the mercy seat;
of which we cannot now speak particularly.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v6

Now when these things were thus ordained,
the priests went always into the first tabernacle,
accomplishing the service of GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v7

But into the second went the high priest alone
once every year,
not without blood, which he offered for himself,
and for the errors of the people,

{ heart }   [HE] 9v8

The HOLY GHOST thus signifying

That the way into the holiest of all
was not yet made manifest,
while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:

{ heart }   [HE] 9v9

Which was a figure for the time then present,
in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices,
that could not make him that did the service perfect,
as pertaining to the conscience,

{ heart }   [HE] 9v10

Which stood only in meats and drinks,
and divers washings, and carnal ordinances
imposed on them until the time of reformation.

¶ Hebrews 9 v11-14

{ heart }   [HE] 9v11

But CHRIST being come an HIGH PRIEST
of good things to come,
by a greater and more perfect tabernacle,
not made with hands, that is to say,

 ‘Not of this building’:

{ heart }   [HE] 9v12

Neither by the blood of goats and calves,
but by HIS OWN blood
HE entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption for us.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v13

For if the blood of bulls, and of goats,
and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean,
sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh,

{ heart }   [HE] 9v14

How much more shall the blood of CHRIST,
WHO through the eternal SPIRIT,
offered HIMSELF without spot to GOD,
purge your conscience from dead works
to serve the living GOD?

¶ Hebrews 9 v15-28

{ heart }   [HE] 9v15

And for this cause HE is the MEDIATOR
of the new Testament, that by means of death,
for the redemption of the transgressions
that were under the first testament,
they which are called,
might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v16

For where a testament is, there must also of necessity
be the death of the testator.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v17

For a testament is of force after men are dead:
otherwise it is of no strength at all
whilest the testator liveth.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v18

Whereupon, neither the first testament
was dedicated without blood.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v19

For when Moses had spoken every precept
to all the people according to the law,
he took the blood of calves and of goats,
with water and scarlet wool, and hyssop,
and sprinkled both the book and all the people,

{ heart }   [HE] 9v20

Saying,

 ‘This is the blood of the testament
which GOD hath enjoined unto you’.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v21

Moreover, he sprinkled with blood
both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v22

And almost all things are by the law
purged with blood:
and without shedding of blood is no remission.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v23

It was therefore necessary
that the patterns of things in the heavens
should be purified with these,
but the heavenly things themselves
with better sacrifices than these.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v24

For CHRIST is not entered into the holy places
made with hands, which are the figures of the true,
but into heaven itself,
now to appear in the presence of GOD for us.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v25

Nor yet that HE should offer HIMSELF often,
as the high priest entereth into the holy place,
every year with blood of others:

{ heart }   [HE] 9v26

For then must he often have suffered
since the foundation of the world:
but now once in the end of the world,
hath HE appeared to put away sin
by the sacrifice of HIMSELF.

{ heart }   [HE] 9v27

And as it is appointed unto men once to die,
but after this the judgment:

{ heart }   [HE] 9v28

So CHRIST was once offered
to bear the sins of many,
and unto them that look for HIM
shall HE appear the second time without sin,
unto salvation.

» Hebrews 10

¶ Hebrews 10 v1-4

{ heart }   [HE] 10v1

For the law having a shadow
of good things to come,
and not the very image of the things,
can never with those sacrifices
which they offered year by year continually,
make the comers thereunto perfect:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v2

For then would they not have ceased to be offered,
because that the worshippers once purged,
should have had no more conscience of sins?

{ heart }   [HE] 10v3

But in those sacrifices
there is a remembrance again made of sins
every year.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v4

For it is not possible
that the blood of bulls and of goats,
should take away sins.

¶ Hebrews 10 v5-10

{ heart }   [HE] 10v5

Wherefore when HE cometh into the world,
HE saith,


Sacrifice and offering THOU wouldest not,
but a body hast THOU prepared ME:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v6

In burnt offerings, and sacrifices for sin
THOU hast had no pleasure:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v7

Then said I,

 ‘Lo, I come.
(In the volume of the book it is written of ME)
to do THY will, O GOD’.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v8

Above when HE said,

Sacrifice, and offering and burnt offerings,
and offering for sin THOU wouldest not,
neither hadst pleasure therein,
which are offered by the law:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v9

Then said HE,

Lo, I come to do THY will (O GOD:)

HE taketh away the first,
that HE may establish the second.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v10

By the which will we are sanctified,
through the offering of the body of JESUS CHRIST
once for all.

¶ Hebrews 10 v11-18

{ heart }   [HE] 10v11

And every priest standeth daily ministering
and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices
which can never take away sins.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v12

But THIS MAN after HE had offered
one sacrifice for sins forever,
sat down on the right hand of GOD,

{ heart }   [HE] 10v13

From henceforth expecting
till HIS enemies be made HIS footstool.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v14

For by one offering
HE hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v15

Whereof the HOLY GHOST also is a witness to us:
for after that HE had said before,

{ heart }   [HE] 10v16

This is the covenant that I will make with them
after those days,


Saith the LORD:

I will put MY laws into their hearts,
and in their minds will I write them:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v17

And their sins and iniquities
will I remember no more.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v18

Now, where remission of these is,
there is no more offering for sin.

¶ Hebrews 10 v19-25

{ heart }   [HE] 10v19

Having therefore, brethren, boldness
to enter into the holiest by the blood of JESUS,

{ heart }   [HE] 10v20

By a new and living way
which HE hath consecrated for us,
through the veil, that is to say,

 ‘HIS flesh’:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v21

And having an HIGH PRIEST
over the house of GOD:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v22

Let us draw near with a true heart
in full assurance of faith,
having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience,
and our bodies washed with pure water.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v23

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith
without wavering (for HE is faithful THAT promised)

{ heart }   [HE] 10v24

And let us consider one another
to provoke unto love, and to good works:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v25

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together,
as the manner of some is:
but exhorting one another, and so much the more,
as ye see the day approaching.

¶ Hebrews 10 v26-31

{ heart }   [HE] 10v26

For if we sin willfully
after that we have received the knowledge of the truth,
there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

{ heart }   [HE] 10v27

But a certain fearful looking for of judgment,
and fiery indignation,
which shall devour the adversaries.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v28

He that despised Moses' law,
died without mercy, under two or three witnesses.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v29

Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye,
shall he be thought worthy,
who hath trodden under foot the SON of GOD,
and hath counted the blood of the covenant
wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing,
and hath done despite unto the SPIRIT of grace?

{ heart }   [HE] 10v30

For we know HIM THAT hath said,

Vengeance belongeth unto ME, I will recompense,

Saith the LORD: and again,

The LORD shall judge HIS people.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v31

It is a fearful thing
to fall into the hands of the living GOD.

¶ Hebrews 10 v32-39

{ heart }   [HE] 10v32

But call to remembrance the former days,
in which after ye were illuminated,
ye endured a great fight of afflictions:

{ heart }   [HE] 10v33

Partly whilest ye were made a gazing stock
both by reproaches and afflictions,
and partly whilest ye became companions
of them that were so used.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v34

For ye had compassion of me in my bonds,
and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods,
knowing in yourselves

 ‘That ye have in heaven
a better and an enduring substance’.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v35

Cast not away therefore your confidence
which hath great recompense of reward.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v36

For ye have need of patience,
that shall after ye have done the will of GOD
ye might receive the promise.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v37

For yet a little while, and HE THAT shall come
will come, and will not tarry.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v38

Now the just shall live by faith:
but if any man draw back,
MY soul shall have no pleasure in him.

{ heart }   [HE] 10v39

But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition:
but of them that believe, to the saving of the soul.

» Hebrews 11

¶ Hebrews 11 v1-7

{ heart }   [HE] 11v1

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v2

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v3

Through faith we understand

 ‘That the worlds were framed by the word of GOD,
so that things which are seen
were not made of things which do appear’.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v4

By faith Abel offered unto GOD
a more excellent sacrifice than Cain,
by which he obtained witness that he was righteous,
GOD testifying of his gifts:
and by it he being dead, yet speaketh.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v5

By faith Enoch was translated
that he should not see death,
and was not found, because GOD had translated him:
For before his translation he had this testimony,
that he pleased GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v6

But without faith it is impossible to please HIM:
for he that cometh to GOD must believe that HE is,
and that HE is a REWARDER of them
that diligently seek HIM.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v7

By faith Noah being warned of GOD
of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,
prepared an ark to the saving of his house,
the which he condemned the world,
and became heir of the righteousness
which is by faith.

¶ Hebrews 11 v8-22

{ heart }   [HE] 11v8

By faith Abraham when he was called
to go out into a place
which he should after receive for an inheritance,
obeyed, and he went out, not knowing where he went.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v9

By faith he sojourned in the land of promise,
as in a strange country,
dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob,
the heirs with him of the same promise.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v10

For he looked for a city which hath foundations,
whose BUILDER and MAKER is GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v11

Through faith also Sara herself received strength
to conceive seed,
and was delivered of a child when she was past age,
because she judged HIM faithful WHO had promised.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v12

Therefore sprang there even of one,
and him as good as dead,
as many as the stars of the sky in multitude,
and as the sand
which is by the sea shore innumerable.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v13

These all died in faith,
not having received the promises
but having seen them afar off,
and were persuaded of them, and embraced them,
and confessed
that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v14

For they that say such things,
declare plainly that they seek a country.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v15

And truly, if they had been mindful of that country,
from whence they came out,
they might have had opportunity to return.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v16

But now they desire a better country,
that is, an heavenly:
wherefore GOD is not ashamed to be called

 ‘Their GOD:’ 

For HE hath prepared for them a city.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v17

By faith Abraham when he was tried, offered up Isaac:
and he that had received the promises,
offered up his only begotten son,

{ heart }   [HE] 11v18

Of whom it was said,

That, in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

{ heart }   [HE] 11v19

Accounting that GOD was able to raise him up,
even from the dead:
from whence also he received him in a figure.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v20

By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau
concerning things to come.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v21

By faith Jacob when he was a dying,
blessed both the sons of Joseph,
and worshipped leaning upon the top of his staff.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v22

By faith, Joseph, when he died,
made mention of the departing of the children of Israel:
and gave commandment concerning his bones.

¶ Hebrews 11 v23-31

{ heart }   [HE] 11v23

By faith; Moses when he was born
was hid three months of his parents,
because they saw he was a proper child,
and they not afraid of the king's commandment.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v24

By faith Moses when he was come to years,
refused to be called

 ‘The son of Pharaoh's daughter’,

{ heart }   [HE] 11v25

Choosing rather to suffer affliction
with the people of GOD,
than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season:

{ heart }   [HE] 11v26

Esteeming the reproach of CHRIST
greater riches than the treasures in Egypt:
for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v27

By faith he forsook Egypt,
not fearing the wrath of the king:
for he endured, as seeing HIM WHO is invisible.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v28

Through faith he kept the Passover,
and the sprinkling of blood,
lest HE THAT destroyed the firstborn,
should touch them.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v29

By faith they passed through the Red Sea,
as by dry land:
which the Egyptians assaying to do, were drowned.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v30

By faith the walls of Jericho fell down,
after they were compassed about seven days.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v31

By faith the harlot Rahab perished not
with them that believed not,
when she had received the spies with peace.

¶ Hebrews 11 v32-40

{ heart }   [HE] 11v32

And what shall I more say?
for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon,
and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthah,
of David also and Samuel, and of the prophets:

{ heart }   [HE] 11v33

Who through faith subdued kingdoms,
wrought righteousness,
obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

{ heart }   [HE] 11v34

Quenched the violence of fire,
escaped the edge of the sword,
out of weakness were made strong,
waxed valiant in fight,
turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v35

Women received their dead raised to life again:
and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance,
that they might obtain a better resurrection:

{ heart }   [HE] 11v36

And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings,
yea moreover, of bonds and imprisonment.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v37

They were stoned, they were sawn asunder,
were tempted, were slain with the sword:
they wandered about in sheepskins, and goatskins,
being destitute, afflicted, tormented.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v38

Of whom the world was not worthy:
they wandered in deserts, and in mountains,
and in dens and caves of the earth.

{ heart }   [HE] 11v39

And these all having obtained a good report
through faith, received not the promise:

{ heart }   [HE] 11v40

GOD having provided some better thing for us,
that they without us, should not be made perfect.

» Hebrews 12

¶ Hebrews 12 v1-3

{ heart }   [HE] 12v1

Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience
unto the race that is set before us,

{ heart }   [HE] 12v2

Looking unto JESUS the AUTHOR and FINISHER of our faith,
WHO for the joy that was set before HIM,
endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand
of the throne of GOD.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v3

For consider HIM THAT endured
such contradiction of sinners against HIMSELF,
lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

¶ Hebrews 12 v4-11

{ heart }   [HE] 12v4

Ye have not yet resisted unto blood,
striving against sin.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v5

And ye have forgotten the exhortation
which speaketh unto you as unto children,

 ‘My son, despise not thou the chastening
of the LORD,
nor faint when thou art rebuked of HIM’.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v6

For whom the LORD loveth HE chasteneth,
and scourgeth every son whom HE receiveth.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v7

If ye endure chastening,
GOD dealeth with you as with sons:
for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

{ heart }   [HE] 12v8

But if ye be without chastisement,
whereof all are partakers,
then are ye bastards, and not sons.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v9

Furthermore, we have had fathers of our flesh,
which corrected us, and we gave them reverence:
shall we not much rather be in subjection
unto the FATHER of spirits, and live?

{ heart }   [HE] 12v10

For they verily for a few days chastened us
after their own pleasure, but HE for our profit,
that we might be partakers of HIS holiness.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v11

Now no chastening for the present
seemeth to be joyous, but grievous:
nevertheless, afterward it yieldeth
the peaceable fruit of righteousness,
unto them which are exercised thereby.

¶ Hebrews 12 v12-17

{ heart }   [HE] 12v12

Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down,
and the feeble knees.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v13

And make straight paths for your feet,
lest that which is lame be turned out of the way,
but let it rather be healed.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v14

Follow peace with all men, and holiness,
without which no man shall see the LORD:

{ heart }   [HE] 12v15

Looking diligently,
lest any man fail of the grace of GOD,
lest any root of bitterness springing up, trouble you,
and thereby many be defiled:

{ heart }   [HE] 12v16

Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person,
as Esau, who for one morsel of meat
sold his birthright.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v17

For ye know how that afterward
when he would have inherited the blessing,
he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance,
though he sought it carefully with tears.

¶ Hebrews 12 v18-24

{ heart }   [HE] 12v18

For ye are not come unto the mount
that might be touched, and that burned with fire,
nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

{ heart }   [HE] 12v19

And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words,
which voice they that heard, entreated
that the word should not be spoken to them any more.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v20

For they could not endure
that which was commanded:


And if so much as a beast touch the mountain,
it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v21

And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said,

 ‘I exceedingly fear, and quake’.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v22

But ye are come unto Mount Zion,
and unto the city of the living GOD,
the heavenly Jerusalem,
and to an innumerable company of Angels:

{ heart }   [HE] 12v23

To the general assembly, and church of the first born which are written in heaven,
and to GOD the JUDGE of all,
and to the spirits of just men made perfect:

{ heart }   [HE] 12v24

And to JESUS the MEDIATOR of the new covenant,
and to the blood of sprinkling,
that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

¶ Hebrews 12 v25-29

{ heart }   [HE] 12v25

See that ye refuse not HIM THAT speaketh:
for if they escaped not
who refused HIM THAT spake on earth,
much more shall not we escape
if we turn away from HIM THAT speaketh
from heaven.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v26

WHOSE VOICE then shook the earth,
but now HE hath promised, saying,


Yet once more I shake not the earth only,
but also heaven.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v27

And this word,

Yet once more,

Signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken,
as of things that are made,
that those things which cannot be shaken
may remain.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v28

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom
which cannot be moved, let us have grace,
whereby we may serve GOD acceptably,
with reverence and godly fear.

{ heart }   [HE] 12v29

For our GOD is a consuming fire.

» Hebrews 13

¶ Hebrews 13 v1-6

{ heart }   [HE] 13v1

Let brotherly love continue.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v2

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers,
for thereby some have entertained Angels unawares.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v3

Remember them that are in bonds,
as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity,
as being yourselves also in the body.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v4

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled:
but whoremongers, and adulterers GOD will judge.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v5

Let your conversation be without covetousness:
and be content with such things as ye have.
For HE hath said,


I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v6

So that we may boldly say,

 ‘The LORD is my helper,
and I will not fear what man shall do unto me’.

¶ Hebrews 13 v7-9

{ heart }   [HE] 13v7

Remember them which have the rule over you,
who have spoken unto you the word of GOD,
whose faith follow,
considering the end of their conversation.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v8

JESUS CHRIST the SAME yesterday, and today,
and forever.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v9

Be not carried about with divers
and strange doctrines: for it is a good thing
that the heart be established with grace,
not with meats, which have not profited them
that have been occupied therein.

¶ Hebrews 13 v10-16

{ heart }   [HE] 13v10

We have an altar whereof they have no right to eat,
which serve the tabernacle.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v11

For the bodies of those beasts,
whose blood is brought into the sanctuary
by the high priest for sin, are burnt without the camp.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v12

Wherefore JESUS also, that HE might
sanctify the people with HIS OWN blood,
suffered without the gate.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v13

Let us go forth therefore unto HIM without the camp,
bearing HIS reproach.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v14

For here have we no continuing city,
but we seek one to come.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v15

By HIM therefore let us offer
the sacrifice of praise to GOD continually,
that is, the fruit of our lips,
giving thanks to HIS NAME.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v16

But to do good, and to communicate forget not,
for with such sacrifices GOD is well pleased.

¶ Hebrews 13 v17-19

{ heart }   [HE] 13v17

Obey them that have the rule over you,
and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls,
as they that must give account,
that they may do it with joy, and not with grief:
for that is unprofitable for you.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v18

Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience
in all things, willing to live honestly.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v19

But I beseech you the rather to do this,
that I may be restored to you the sooner.

¶ Hebrews 13 v20-25

{ heart }   [HE] 13v20

Now the GOD of peace,
THAT brought again from the dead
our LORD JESUS,
THAT GREAT SHEPHERD of the sheep,
through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

{ heart }   [HE] 13v21

Make you perfect in every good work to do HIS will,
working in you that which is well pleasing in HIS sight,
through JESUS CHRIST,
to WHOM be glory forever and ever. Amen.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v22

And I beseech you, brethren,
suffer the word of exhortation,
for I have written a letter unto you in few words.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v23

Know ye, that our brother Timothy is set at liberty,
with whom if he come shortly, I will see you.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v24

Salute all them that have the rule over you,
and all the Saints. They of Italy salute you.

{ heart }   [HE] 13v25

Grace be with you all. Amen.

Written to the Hebrews, from Italy, by Timothy.
