1:3 3 Which when also he is the brightness of glory, and [the] figure of his substance, and beareth all things [and bearing all things] by word of his virtue, he maketh purgation of sins, and sitteth on the right half of the majesty in heavens [sitteth on the right half of majesty in high things] ; 3 Which son being the brightness of his glory, and very image of his substance, bearing up all things with the word of his power, hath in his own person purged our sins, and is sitten on the right hand of the majesty on high, 3 Who being the brightness of the glory, and the engraved form of his person, and bearing up all things by his mighty word, hath by himself purged our sins, and sitteth at the right hand of the majesty in the highest places, 3 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;
1:4 4 and so much is made better than angels, by how much he hath inherited a more diverse name [a more different, or excellent, name] before them. 4 and is more excellent than the angels, inasmuch as he hath by inheritance obtained an excellenter {more excellent} name then have they. 4 And is made so much more excellent than the Angels, in as much as he hath obtained a more excellent Name than they. 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
1:5 5 For to which of the angels said God any time, Thou art my Son, I have engendered thee to day [I have to day gendered thee] ? And again, I shall be to him into a Father, and he shall be to me into a Son? 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time: Thou art my son, this day begat I {I begotten} thee? And again: I will be his father, and he shall be my son. 5 For unto which of the Angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day begat I thee? and again, I will be his Father, and he shall be my Son? 5 For to 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?
1:6 6 And when again he bringeth in the first begotten Son into the world [And when again he bringeth in the first begotten into the roundness of the earth] , he saith, And all the angels of God worship him. 6 And again when he bringeth in the first begotten son in [to] the world, he saith: And all the angels of God shall worship him. 6 And again, when he bringeth in his first begotten Son into the world, he saith, And let all the Angels of God worship him. 6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. [again...: or, when he bringeth again]
1:7 7 But he saith to angels [And soothly to angels he saith] , He that maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers flame of fire. 7 And unto [of] the angels he saith: He maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers flames of fire. 7 And of the Angels he saith, He maketh the spirits his messengers, and his ministers a flame of fire. 7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. [And of: Gr. And unto]
1:8 8 But to the Son he saith, God, thy throne is into the world of world [into the world of worlds] ; a rod of equity is the rod of thy realm; 8 But unto the son he saith: God thy seat shall be {thy seat endureth} for ever, and ever. The sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. 8 But unto the Son he saith, O God, thy throne is forever and ever: the scepter of thy kingdom is a scepter of righteousness. 8 But to the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

1:9 9 thou hast loved rightwiseness, and hatedest wickedness; therefore the God, thy God, anointed thee with oil of joy [therefore God, thy God, anointed thee with oil of gladness, or joy] , more than thy fellows. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness and hated iniquity: Wherefore hath God, which is thy God, [hath] anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness and hated iniquity.

1:10 10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning foundedest the earth, and heavens be works of thine hands; 10 And thou Lord in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth: And the heavens are the works of thy hands. 10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast established the earth, and the heavens are the works of thine hands. 10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thy hands:

But thou art the same thyself, and thy years shall not fail. 12 and as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, [but thou arte all wayes] and thy years shall not fail. 12 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. 12 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.
1:13 13 But to which of the angels said God at any time, Sit thou on my right half, till I put thine enemies a stool of thy feet? 13 Unto which of the angels said he at any time?

1:14 14 Whether they all be not serving spirits, sent to serve for them [sent into ministry for them] that take the heritage of health? 14 Are they not all spirits to do service, {ministering spirits} sent for to minister for their sakes, which shall be heirs of health? [salvation?] 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister, for their sakes which shall be heirs of salvation? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall inherit salvation?
2:1 1 Therefore more plenteously it behooveth us to keep those things [Therefore it behooveth us to keep more plenteously those things] , that we have heard, lest peradventure we float away. 1 Wherefore we ought much more to attend unto those [to give the more heed to the] things which we have heard, lest we perish. 1 Wherefore we ought diligently to give heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we run out. [we should let them slip.] 1 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. [let...: Gr. run out as leaking vessels]
2:2 2 For if that word that was said by angels, was made firm, and each breaking of the law and unobedience [and each trespassing, or breaking of the law, and unobedience] took just retribution of meed, 2 For if the word which was spoken by angels was steadfast: and [so that] every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense to reward: 2 For if the word spoken by Angels was steadfast, and every transgression, and disobedience received a just recompense of reward, 2 For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
2:3 3 how shall we escape, if we despise so great an health? Which, when it had taken beginning to be told out by the Lord, of them that heard is confirmed into us. 3 how shall we escape if we despise so great health? [salvation] which at the first began to be preached of {by} the Lord himself, and after ward was confirmed unto us ward, {upon us} by them that heard it; 3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first began to be preached by the Lord, and afterward was confirmed unto us by them that heard him, 3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by them that heard him;
2:4 4 For God witnessed together by miracles, and wonders, and great marvels, and diverse works of power, and partings of the Holy Ghost, by his will. [God together witnessing by signs, and wonders, and great marvels, and diverse virtues, and distributions of the Holy Ghost, after his will.] 4 God bearing witness thereto, both with signs {tokens} and wonders also, and with divers miracles, {powers} and gifts of the holy ghost, according to his own will. 4 God bearing witness thereto, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the holy Ghost, according to his own will? 4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to his own will?

2:5 5 But not to angels God subjected the world that is to coming [Forsooth not to angels God subjected the roundness of the earth to come] , of which we speak. 5 He hath not unto the angels put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak: 5 For he hath not put in subjection unto the Angels the world to come, whereof we speak. 5 For to the angels he hath not put in subjection the world to come, concerning which we speak.
2:6 6 But some man witnessed in a place, and said [Soothly some man witnessed in some place, saying] , What thing is man, that thou art mindful of him, or man's son, for thou visitest him? 6 but one in a certain place witnessed, saying: What is man, that thou art mindful of him: other the son of man, that thou visitest him? [What is man, that thou art mindful of him?] 6 But one in a certain place witnessed, saying, What is man, that thou shouldest be mindful of him? [!] or the son of man, that thou wouldest consider him? [!] 6 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?
2:7 7 Thou hast made him a little less than angels [Thou madest him a little less from angels] ; thou hast crowned him with glory and honour; and thou hast ordained him on [upon] the works of thine hands. 7 After thou hadst for a season made him lower than the angels: thou crownedst him with honour and glory, and hast set him above the works of thy hands. 7 Thou madest him a little inferior to the Angels: thou crownedst him with glory and honor, and hast set him above the works of thine hands. 7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou didst crown him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: [lower...: or, while inferior to]
2:8 8 Thou hast made all things subject under his feet. And in that that he subjected all things to him, he left nothing unsubject to him [he left nothing unsubjected to him] . But now we see not yet all things subject to him; 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. In that he put all things under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. And in that he hath put all things in subjection under him, he left nothing that should not be subject unto him. But we yet see not all things subdued unto him, 8 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 made subject to him. But now we see not yet all things made subject to him.
2:9 9 but we see him that was made a little less than angels, Jesus, for the passion of death crowned with glory and honour, that he through [the] grace of God should taste death for all men. 9 Nevertheless we yet see not all things subdued unto him: but that Jesus which for a season was made less than the angels, we see thorow the punishment of death crowned with glory and honour: [but him that was made less than the angels: we see that it was Iesus, which is crowned with glory and honour for the suffering of death:] that he by the grace of God, should taste of death for all men. 9 But we see Jesus crowned with glory and honor, which was made a little inferior to the Angels, through the suffering of death, that by God's grace he might taste death for all men. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. [for the: or, by the]
2:10 10 For it beseemed him, for whom all things, and by whom all things were made, which had brought many sons into glory, and was author of the health of them, that he had an end by passion. [+Forsooth it became him, for whom all things, and by all things, the which had led together many sons into glory, the maker of the health of them, to end, either make perfect, by passions.] 10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, after that he had brought many sons {children} unto glory, that he should make the Lord of their health [salvation] perfect thorow afflictions: [sufering.] 10 For it became him, for whom are all these things, and by whom are all these things, seeing that he brought many children unto glory, that he should consecrate the Prince of their salvation through afflictions. 10 For it was befitting for him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
2:11 11 For he that halloweth, and they that be hallowed, be all of one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 11 Forasmuch as he which [that] sanctifieth, and they which are sanctified, are all of one. For which cause's sake he is not ashamed to call them brethren 11 For he that sanctifieth, and they which are sanctified, are all of one: wherefore he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 11 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,
2:12 12 saying, I shall tell thy name to my brethren; in the middle of the church I shall praise thee. 12 saying: I will declare thy name unto my brethren, and in the midst {middes} of the congregation will I praise thee. 12 Saying, I will declare thy Name unto my brethren: in the midst of the Church will I sing praises to thee. 12 Saying, I will declare thy name to my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise to thee.
2:13 13 And again, I shall be trusting into him; and again, Lo! I and my children, which God gave to me. 13 And again: I will put my trust in him.

And again, Behold, here am I, and the children which God hath given me. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
2:14 14 Therefore for children communed to flesh and blood, and he also took part of the same, that by death he should destroy him that had lordship of death, that is to say, the devil, 14 Forasmuch then as the children were partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself like wise took part with them, for to put down thorow death him that {that he thorow death, might take away the power of him, which} had lordship over death that is to say the devil. 14 Forasmuch then as the children are [were] partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part with them, that he might destroy through death, him that had the power of death, that is the devil, 14 Since then 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;
2:15 15 and that he should deliver them that by dread of death [and should deliver them that by dread of death] , by all life were bound to servage. 15 And that he might deliver them which thorow fear of death all their life time were in danger of bondage. 15 And that he might deliver all them, which for fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
2:16 16 And he took [to] never angels, but he took [to] the seed of Abraham. 16 For he in no place taketh on him the angels: but the seed of Abraham taketh he on him. 16 For he in no sort took on him the Angel's nature, but he took on him the seed of Abraham. 16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. [took not...: Gr. taketh not hold of angels, but of the seed of Abraham he taketh hold]
2:17 17 Wherefore he ought to be likened to brethren by all things, that he should be made merciful and a faithful bishop to God, that he should be merciful to the trespasses of the people. 17 Wherefore in all things it became him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be merciful, and a faithful high priest in things concerning God, for to purge the people's sins. {to make agreement for the sins of the people} 17 Wherefore in all things it behooved [became] him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be merciful, and a faithful high Priest in things concerning God, that he might make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 17 Therefore in all things it behoved him to be made like 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.
2:18 18 For in that thing in which he suffered, and was tempted, he is mighty to help also them that be tempted. 18 For in that he himself suffered, and was tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. 18 For in that he suffered, and was tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. 18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to help them that are tempted.

3:3 3 But this bishop [Forsooth this bishop] is had worthy of more glory than Moses, by as much as he hath more honour of the house, that made the house. 3 And [yet was] this man was counted worthy of more glory {greater honour} than Moses: Inasmuch as he which hath prepared the house, hath most honour in the house. {then the house it self} 3 For this man is counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he which hath builded the house, hath more honor than the house. 3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath built the house hath more honour than the house.
3:4 4 For each house is made of some man; [forsooth] he that made all things of nought is God. 4 Every house is prepared of some man. But he that ordained all things is God. 4 For every house is builded of some man, and he that hath built all things, is God. 4 For every house is built by some man; but he that built all things is God.
3:5 5 And [soothly] Moses was true in all his house, as a servant, into witnessing of those things that were to be said; 5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a minister, to bear witness of those things which should be spoken afterward. 5 Now Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a witness of the things which should be spoken after. 5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later;
3:6 6 but Christ as a son in his house. Which house we be, if we hold firm trust and glory of hope into [unto] the end. 6 But Christ as a son hath rule over the house, whose house we are, if we keep stedfast [so that we hold fast the] confidence and rejoicing in the faith unto the end. [and the rejoycing of that hope, unto the end.] 6 But Christ is as the Son, over his own house, whose house we are, if we hold fast that [the] confidence and that [the] rejoicing of that [the] hope unto the end. 6 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 to the end.
3:7 7 Wherefore as the Holy Ghost saith, To day, if ye have heard his voice, 7 Wherefore as the holy ghost saith: today if ye shall hear his voice, 7 Wherefore, as the holy Ghost saith, Today if ye shall hear his voice, 7 Therefore (as the Holy Spirit saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
3:8 8 do not ye harden your hearts, as in wrathing, like the day of temptation in desert [after the day of temptation in desert] ; 8 harden not your hearts, as when ye provoked in time [after the rebellion in the day] of temptation in the wilderness, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, according to the day of the temptation in the wilderness, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
3:9 9 where your fathers tempted me, and proved, and saw my works forty years. [where your fathers tempted me, proved, and saw my works.] 9 where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty year long. 9 Where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years long. 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
3:10 10 Wherefore I was wroth [Wherefore I was offended, or wroth,] to this generation, and I said, Evermore they err in heart, for they knew not my ways; 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation and said: They ever err in their hearts: they verily have not known my ways, 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They err ever in their heart, neither have they known my ways. 10 Therefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do always err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
3:11 11 to which I swore in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest. [to whom I swore in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest.] 11 so that I sware in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest. 11 Therefore I sware in my wrath, If they shall enter into my rest. 11 So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) [They...: Gr. If they shall enter]
3:12 12 Brethren, see ye, lest peradventure in any of you be an evil heart of unbelief, to depart from the living God. 12 Take heed brethren that there be in none of you an evil heart, in unbelief, that he should depart from the living God: 12 Take heed, brethren, lest at any time there be in any of you an evil heart, and unfaithful, to depart away from the living God. 12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
3:13 13 But admonish yourselves by all days, the while to day is named, that none of you be hardened by fallacy of sin [that none of you be hardened by falseness of sin] . 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you wax hard hearted, and be deceived with sin.

3:14 14 For we be made partners of Christ, if nevertheless we hold the beginning of his substance firm into the end. 14 We are partakers of Christ, so that [if] we keep sure unto the end the beginning of the substance, [the first substance,] 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we keep sure unto the end that [the] beginning, wherewith we are upholden, 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end;
3:15 15 While it is said, to day, if ye have heard the voice of him, do not ye harden your hearts, as in that wrathing. 15 so long as it is said: today if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as when ye provoked.

3:16 16 For some men hearing wrathed [Soothly some hearing wrathed] , but not all they that went out of Egypt by Moses. 16 For some, when they heard, provoked: [rebelled] but [howbeit] not all that came out of Egypt under Moses. 16 For some when they heard, provoked him to anger: howbeit, not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: yet not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
3:17 17 But to whom was he wrathed forty years? Whether not to them that sinned, whose carrions were cast down in desert [into desert] ? 17 But with whom was he displeased forty years? was he not displeased with them that sinned: whose bodies [carcasses] were overthrown in the desert? {wilderness} 17 But with whom was he displeased forty years? Was he not displeased with them that sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? 17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
3:18 18 And to whom swore he, that they should not enter into the rest of him [+To whom he swore soothly, to not enter into his rest] , no but to them that were unbelieveful? 18 To whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest: but unto them that believed not? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but unto them that obeyed not? 18 And to whom did he swear that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
3:19 19 And we see, that they might not enter into the rest of him for unbelief. 19 And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief. 19 So we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief. 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
4:1 1 Therefore dread we, least peradventure while the promise of entering into his rest is left, that any of us be guessed to be away [be guessed, or deemed, for to fail] . 1 Let us fear therefore lest any of us forsaking the promise of entering into his rest, should seem to come behind. 1 Let us fear therefore, lest at any time by forsaking the promise of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to be deprived. 1 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.
4:2 2 For it is told also to us, as to them [Forsooth it is told to us, as and to them] . And the word that was heard profited not to them, not mingled to faith of those things that they heard. 2 For unto us was it declared, as well as unto them. But it profited not {preaching helped not} them that they heard the word, because they which heard it coupled it not with faith. {believed it not} 2 For unto us was the Gospel preached as also unto them: but the word that they heard, profited not them, because it was not mixed with faith in those that heard it. 2 For to us was the gospel preached, as well as to them: but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. [the word...: Gr. the word of hearing] [not being...: or, because they were not united by faith to]
4:3 3 For we that have believed, shall enter into rest, as he said, As I swore in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest. And when the works were made perfect at the ordinance of the world, [+Forsooth we that have believed shall enter into rest, as he said, As I swore in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest. And soothly the works were made perfect from the ordinance of the world,] 3 [But] We which have believed, do enter into his rest, as contrary wise [contrariwise] he said to the other: as I have sworn in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest. And that spake he verily long after that the works were made, from [and] the foundation of the world laid. {works from the beginning of the world were made} 3 For we which have believed, do enter into rest, as he said to the other, 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. 3 For we who 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.
4:4 4 he said thus in a place of the seventh day [he said thus in some place of the seventh day] , And God rested in the seventh day from all his works. 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day, on this wise: And God did rest {rested on} the seventh day from all his works. 4 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. 4 For he spoke in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God rested the seventh day from all his works.
4:5 5 And in this place again, They shall not enter into my rest. [+And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.] 5 And in this place again: They shall not come into my rest. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
4:6 6 Therefore for it followeth, that some men shall enter into it, and they to which it was told to before [and they first to whom it is told] , entered not for their unbelief. 6 Seeing therefore it followeth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entered not therein for unbelief's sake. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entered not therein for unbelief's sake: 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter into it, and they to whom it was first preached entered not because of unbelief: [it was: or, the gospel was]
4:7 7 Again, he determineth some day, and saith in David, To day, after so much time of time [Again, he termineth some day, saying in David, To day, after so much of time] , as it is before-said, To day if ye have heard his voice, do not ye harden your hearts. 7 Again he appointeth in David a certain present day after so long a time, saying as it is rehearsed: this day if ye hear his voice, be not hard hearted. 7 Again he appointed in David a certain day, by Today, after so long a time, saying, as it is said, This day, if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
4:8 8 For if Jesus had given rest to them, he should never speak of other after this day [after that day] . 8 For if Josue [Iosue] had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not after this have spoke of another day. [then would he not after this day have spoken of another.] 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then he would not afterward have spoken of another day. [Jesus: that is, Ioshua]
4:9 9 Therefore the sabbath is left to the people of God. [Therefore rest is left to the people of God.] 9 There remaineth therefore yet a rest to the people of God. 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. [rest: or, keeping of a sabbath]
4:10 10 For he that is entered into his rest, [and he] rested of his works, as also God of his. 10 For he that is entered into his rest doth cease from his own works, as God did from his. 10 For he that is entered into his rest, hath also ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 10 For he that hath entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
4:11 11 Therefore haste we to enter into that rest, that no man fall into the same ensample of unbelief [that no man fall into the same example of unbelief] . 11 Let us study {make haist} therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall [faule] into such an [after the same] ensample of [,into] unbelief: 11 Let us study therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same ensample of disobedience. 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. [unbelief: or, disobedience]
4:12 12 For the word of God is quick, and speedy in working, and more able to pierce than any twain-edged sword [two-edged sword] , and stretcheth forth [till] to the parting of the soul and of the spirit, and of the jointures and marrows, and deemer of thoughts, and of intents of hearts [+and entering, or stretching, unto parting of soul and spirit, and of jointures and marrows, and it is the deemer of thoughts and intents of hearts] . 12 for the word of God is quick, and mighty in operation, and sharper than any two edged sword: and entereth through, even unto the dividing a sunder of the soul and the spirit and of the joints, and the mary: and judgeth the thoughts and the intents of the heart. 12 For the word of God is lively, and mighty in operation, and sharper than any two edged sword, and entereth through, even unto the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, and of the joints, and the marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts, and the intents of the heart. 12 For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.
4:13 13 And no creature is invisible in the sight of God. For all things be naked and open to his eyes, to whom a word to us. 13 Neither is there any creature invisible in the sight of it: but [.For] all things are naked and bare unto the eyes of him, of whom we speak. 13 Neither is there any creature, which is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and open unto his eyes, with whom we have to do. 13 Neither is there any creature that is hidden in his sight: but all things are naked and opened to the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
4:14 14 Therefore we that have a great bishop, that pierced heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, hold we the acknowledging of our hope [hold we the confession, or acknowledging, of our faith] . 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest which is entered into heaven (I mean Jesus the son of God) let us keep [hold] our profession. (of our hope) 14 Seeing then that we have a great high Priest, which is entered into heaven, even Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
4:15 15 For we have not a bishop, that may not have compassion on our infirmities, but was tempted by all things by likeness, without sin. 15 For we have not an high priest, which cannot have compassion on our infirmities: but was in all points tempted, in like manner: [as we are:] but yet without sin. 15 For we have not an high Priest, which can not be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all things tempted in like sort, yet without sin. 15 For we have not an high priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but who was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
4:16 16 Therefore go we with trust to the throne of his grace, that we get mercy, and find grace in opportune help [in covenable help] . 16 Let us therefore go boldly unto the seat of grace, that we may receive mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. 16 Let us therefore go boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
5:1 1 For each bishop taken of men, is ordained for men in these things that be to God [in those things that be to God] , that he offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 1 For every high priest that is taken from among men, is ordained for men, in things pertaining to God: to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins: 1 For every high Priest is taken from among men, and is ordained for men, in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins, 1 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:
5:2 2 Which may together sorrow with them, that be unknowing and err [that know not and err] ; for also he is environed with infirmity. 2 which can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the high way, because that he himself also is compassed with infirmity: 2 Which is able sufficiently to have compassion on them that are ignorant, and that are out of the way, because that he also is compassed with infirmity, 2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is beset with infirmity. [can...: or, can reasonably bear with]
5:3 3 And therefore he oweth, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. 3 For the which infirmities sake, he is bound [(bond)] to offer for sins, as well for his own part, as for the peoples. 3 And for the same's sake he is bound [bond] to offer for sins, as well for his own part, as for the people's. 3 And by reason of it he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.
5:4 4 Neither any man taketh to him honour, but he that is called of God, as Aaron was. 4 [And] No man taketh honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. 4 And no man taketh this honor unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. 4 And no man taketh this honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as was Aaron.
5:5 5 So [and] Christ clarified not himself, that he were bishop, but he that spake to him, Thou art my Son, to day I engendered thee [to day I gendered thee] . 5 Even so likewise Christ honored not himself, that he might be the high priest: but he glorified him that said unto him: [Christ glorified not him self, to be made the hye prest: but he that said unto him] thou art my son, this day begat I thee. {have I begotten thee} 5 So likewise Christ took not to himself this honor, to be made the high Priest, but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, this day begat I thee, gave it him. 5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said to him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.
5:6 6 As [and] in another place he saith, Thou art a priest without end [Thou art a priest into without end] , after the order of Melchisedec. 6 As he also in another place speaketh: {sayeth} Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedech. 6 As he also in another place speaketh, Thou art a Priest forever, after the order of Melchisedec. 6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
5:7 7 Which in the days of his flesh offered, with great cry and tears, prayers and beseechings to him that might make him safe from death, and was heard for his reverence. 7 Which in the days of his flesh, did offer up prayers and supplications, with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death: and was also heard, be cause he had God in reverence. {honour} [because of his godliness.] 7 Who [Which] in the days of his flesh did offer up prayers and supplications, with strong crying and tears unto him, that was able to save him from death, and was also heard in that which he feared. 7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears to him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; [in that...: or, for his piety]
5:8 8 And when he was God's Son, he learned obedience of these things that he suffered; 8 And though he were God's son, [sonne of God] yet learned he obedience, by those things which he suffered, 8 And though he were the Son, yet learned he obedience, by the things which he suffered. 8 Though he was a Son, yet he learned obedience by the things which he suffered;
5:9 9 and he brought to the end is made cause of everlasting health [and he led to perfection is made cause of everlasting health] to all that obey him, 9 and was made perfect, and the cause of eternal {everlasting} health [salvation] unto all them that obey him: 9 And being consecrate, was made the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him: 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him;
5:10 10 and is called of God a bishop, by the order of Melchisedec. [called of God a bishop, by the order of Melchisedec.] 10 and is called of God the [an] high priest, [hye priest] after the order of Melchisedech. 10 And is called of God an high Priest after the order of Melchisedec. 10 Called by God an high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
5:11 11 Of whom there is to us a great word for to say, and able to be expounded, for ye be made feeble to hear. 11 Whereof we have many things to say which are hard to be uttered: because ye are dull of hearing. 11 Of whom we have many things to say, which are hard to be uttered, because ye are dull of hearing. 11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.
5:12 12 For when ye ought to be masters for a time, again ye need that ye be taught, which be the letters of the beginning of God's words [which be the elements, or letters, of the beginning of Godís words] . And ye be made those, to whom is need of milk, and not [of] firm meat. 12 For when as concerning the time, ye ought to be teachers, yet have ye need again that we teach you the first principles {precepts} of the word of God: and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat: 12 For when as concerning the time ye ought to be teachers, yet have ye need again that we teach you what are the first principles of the word of God: and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need of one to teach you again which are the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
5:13 13 For each that is partner of milk, is without part of the word of rightwiseness, for he is a little child. 13 For every man that is fed with milk is inexpert in the word of righteousness: For he is but a babe. 13 For every one that useth milk, is inexpert in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. [is unskillful: Gr. hath no experience]
5:14 14 But of perfect men is firm meat, of them that for custom have [their] wits exercised to discretion of good and of evil [of good and evil] . 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are perfect, which thorow custom have their wits exercised, to judge both good and evil also. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of age, which through long custom have their wits exercised, to discern both good and evil. 14 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. [of full age: or, perfect] [use: or, an habit, or, perfection]
6:1 1 Therefore we bringing in a word of the beginning of Christ, be we born to the perfection of him, not again laying the foundament of penance from dead works, and of the faith to God, [+Therefore we leaving a while the word of the beginning of Christ, be born to the perfection, not again laying the foundament of penance from dead works, and of faith to God,] 1 Wherefore let us leave the doctrine pertaining to the beginning of a Christian man, and let us go unto perfection, and now no more lay the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 1 Therefore, leaving the doctrine of the beginning of Christ, let us be led forward unto perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 1 Therefore leaving the 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, [principles...: or, word of the beginning of]
6:2 2 and of teaching of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of rising again of dead men, and of everlasting doom. 2 of baptism, of doctrine, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection from death, {resurrection of the dead} and of eternal judgement. 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and laying on of hands, and of the resurrection from the dead, and of eternal judgement. 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
6:3 3 And this thing we shall do, if God shall suffer. 3 And so will we do, if God permit. 3 And this will we do if God permit. 3 And this will we do, if God permit.
6:4 4 But it is impossible, that they that be once lightened [them that once be illumined] , and have tasted also an heavenly gift, and be made partners of the Holy Ghost, 4 For it is not possible that they, which were once lighted, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were become partakers of the holy ghost, 4 For it is impossible that they which were once lightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the holy Ghost, 4 For it is impossible for those who have been once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit,
6:5 5 and nevertheless have tasted the good word of God, and the virtues of the world to coming [and virtues of the world to come] , 5 and have tasted of the good word of God, and of the power of the world to come: 5 And have tasted of the good word of God, and of the powers of the world to come, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
6:6 6 and be slid far away, that they be renewed again to penance. Which again crucify to themselves the Son of God, and have him to scorn. 6 if they fall, [faule away] should be renewed again unto repentance: Forasmuch as they have (as concerning them selves) crucified the son of God afresh, making a mock of him. 6 If they fall away, should be renewed again by [unto] repentance: seeing they crucify again to themselves the Son of God, and make a mock of him. 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again to repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
6:7 7 For the earth that drinketh rain oft coming on it, and bringeth forth suitable herb to them of which it is tilled [Forsooth the earth drinking rain oft coming upon it, and bringing forth covenable herb to them of whom it is tilled] , taketh blessing of God. 7 For that earth which drinketh in the rain which cometh often upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them that dress it, receiveth blessing of God: 7 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 of God. 7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh often upon it, and bringeth forth herbs useful for them by whom it is tilled, receiveth blessing from God: [by: or, for]
6:8 8 But that that is bringing forth thorns and briers, is reprovable, and next to curse, whose ending shall be into burning. 8 but that ground, which beareth thorns and briars, is reproved, {and thistles, is nothing worth.} and is nye unto cursing: whose end is to be burned. 8 But that which beareth thorns and briars, is reproved, and is near unto cursing, whose end is to be burned. 8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is close to being cursed; whose end is to be burned.
6:9 9 But, ye most dear-worthy, we trust of you better things, and near(er) to health, though we speak so. 9 Nevertheless dear friends, {ye dearly beloved} we trust to see better of you, and things which accompany health, [salvation] {and that salvation is nyer} though we thus speak. 9 But beloved, we have persuaded ourselves better things of you, and such as accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.
6:10 10 For God is not unjust, that he forget your work and love, which ye have showed in his name; for ye have ministered to saints, and minister. 10 For God is not unrighteous that he should forget your work, and labour that proceedeth of love, which love shewed in his name, which have ministered unto the saints, and yet minister. 10 For God is not unrighteous, that he should forget your work, and labor of love, which ye shewed toward his Name, in that ye have ministered unto the Saints, and yet minister. 10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shown toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
6:11 11 And we covet that each of you show the same busyness to the filling of hope [to the full-filling of hope] into the end; 11 Yea, and we desire that every one of you shew the same diligence, to the increase of the faith, [to the establishing of hope] even unto the end: 11 And we desire that every one of you shew the same diligence, to the full assurance of hope unto the end, 11 And we desire each one of you to show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope to the end:
6:12 12 that ye be not made slow, but also followers of them, which by faith and patience shall inherit the promises. 12 that ye faint not, but counterfeit [follow] them, which thorow faith and patience inherit the promises. 12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them, which through faith and patience, inherit the promises. 12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
6:13 13 For God promising to Abraham, for he had none greater, by whom he should swear, swore by himself, 13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he had no greater thing to swear by, he sware by himself, 13 For when God made the promise to Abraham, because he had no greater to swear by, he sware by himself, 13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he swore by himself,
6:14 14 and said [saying] , I blessing shall bless thee, and I multiplying shall multiply thee; 14 saying: Surely I will bless thee, and multiply thee in deed. 14 Saying, Surely I will abundantly bless thee and multiply thee marvelously. 14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
6:15 15 and so he long abiding had the promise. [and so he long suffering got repromission.] 15 And so after that he had tarried a long time, he enjoyed {so he abode patiently, and obtained} the promises. 15 And so after that he had tarried patiently, he enjoyed the promise. 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
6:16 16 For men swear by a greater than themselves, and the end of all their plea [and the end of all their controversy, or debate,] is an oath to confirmation. 16 Men verily swear by him that is greater than themselves; And an oath to confirm the thing, is among them an end of all strife. 16 For men verily swear by him that is greater than themselves, and an oath for confirmation is among them an end of all strife. 16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of every dispute.
6:17 17 In which thing God willing to show plenteouslier to the heirs of his promise the firmness of his counsel, put betwixt an oath, [+In which thing God willing to show plenteouslier to the heirs of his promise the unmoveableness, or firmness, of his counsel, put between an oath,] 17 So God willing very abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise, the stableness of his counsel, [counsayle] he added an oath, 17 So God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the stableness of his counsel, bound himself by an oath, 17 In the same way God, willing more abundantly to show to the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: [confirmed...: Gr. interposed himself by]
6:18 18 that by two things unmoveable, by which it is impossible that God lie, we have a strongest solace, that flee together to hold the hope that is put forth to us. [+that by two things unmoveable, by which it is impossible God for to lie, we have strongest solace, or comfort, which flee together to hold the hope put forth.] 18 that by two immutable things (in which it was unpossible that God should lie) we might have perfect {a strong} consolation, which have {even we which are} fled, for to hold fast the hope that is set before our faces, [before us] 18 That by two immutable things, wherein it is unpossible that God should lie, we might have strong consolation, which have our refuge to lay hold upon that [to hold fast the] hope that is set before us, 18 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:
6:19 19 Which hope as an anchor we have secure to the soul, and firm, and going into the inner things of hiding; 19 which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast. Which hope also entereth in, into those things which are within the veil, 19 Which hope we have, as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and it entereth into that which is within the veil, [vail] 19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and one which entereth into that within the veil;
6:20 20 where the before-goer, Jesus, that is made bishop without end by the order of Melchisedec, entered for us. [where the fore-goer for us entered in, Jesus, made bishop into without end after the order of Melchisedec.] 20 whither the forerunner is for us entered in, I mean Jesus that is made an high priest for ever, after the order of Melchisedech. 20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered in, even Jesus that is made an high Priest forever after the order of Melchisedec. 20 Where the forerunner hath for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

7:2 2 to whom also Abraham parted tithes of all things; first he is said king of rightwiseness [first soothly the which is interpreted king of rightwiseness] , and afterward king of Salem, that is to say, king of peace, 2 to whom also Abraham gave tithes of all things) first is by interpretation king of righteousness, after that he is king of Salem, that is to say king of peace, 2 To whom also Abraham gave the tithe of all things: who first is by interpretation King of righteousness: after that, he is also King of Salem, that is, King of peace, 2 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;
7:3 3 without father, without mother, without genealogy, neither having beginning of days, neither end of life; and he is likened to the Son of God, and dwelleth priest without end [forsooth he likened to the Son of God, dwelleth priest into without end] . 3 without father, without mother, without kin, and hath neither beginning of his time, {beginning of days} neither yet end of his life: but is likened unto the son of God, and remaineth [continueth] a priest for ever. 3 Without father, without mother, without kindred, and hath neither beginning of his days, neither end of life: but is likened unto the Son of God, and continueth a Priest forever. 3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

7:4 4 But behold ye how great is this [man] [Forsooth behold ye how great this is] , to whom Abraham the patriarch gave tithes of the best things. 4 Consider what {how great} a man this was, unto whom the patriarch Abraham gave tithes of the spoils. 4 Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the Patriarch Abraham gave the tithe of the spoils. 4 Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
7:5 5 For men of the sons of Levi taking priesthood have commandment to take tithes of the people, by the law [And soothly men taking priesthood of the sons of Levi have commandment to take tithes of the people, after the law] , that is to say, of their brethren, though also they went out of the loins of Abraham. 5 And verily those children of Levi, which receive the office of the priests, {priesthood} have a commandment to take according to the law, tithes of the people, that is to say, of their brethren, yea though they sprung {also came} out of the loins of Abraham. 5 For verily they which are the children of Levi, which receive the office of the Priesthood, have a commandment to take, according to the Law, tithes of the people (that is, of their brethren) though they came out of the loins of Abraham. 5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they come from the loins of Abraham:

7:9 9 And that it be said so [And that it is so said] , by Abraham also Levi, that took tithes, was tithed; 9 And to say the truth, Levi him self also which receiveth tithes, paid tithes in Abraham. 9 And to say as the thing is, Levi also which receiveth tithes, paid tithes in Abraham. 9 And as I may say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
7:10 10 and yet he was in his father's loins, when Melchisedec met him. 10 For he was yet in the loins of his father Abraham, when Melchisedech met him. 10 For he was yet in the loins of his father Abraham, when Melchisedec met him. 10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchizedek met him.
7:11 11 Therefore if perfection was by the priesthood of Levi, for under him the people took the law, what yet was it needful, another priest to rise, by the order of Melchisedec, and not to be said by the order of Aaron [what yet was it needful, another priest to rise, after the order of Melchisedec, and not to be said after the order of Aaron] ? 11 If now therefore perfection came by the priesthood of the levites (for under that priesthood the people received the law) what needed it furthermore that another priest should rise, after the order of Melchisedech, and not after the order of Aaron? 11 If therefore perfection had been by the Priesthood of the Levites (for under it the Law was established to the people) what needed it furthermore, that another Priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not to be called after the order of Aaron? 11 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 Melchizedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
7:12 12 For why when the priesthood is translated, it is need [it is needful] that also [the] translation of the law be made. 12 Now no doubt, if the priesthood be translated, then of necessity must the law be translated also. 12 For if the Priesthood be changed, then of necessity must there be a change of the Law. 12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
7:13 13 But he in whom these things be said, is of another lineage, of which no man was priest to the altar [of which no man was priest, or ready, to the altar] . 13 For he of whom these things are spoken, pertaineth unto another tribe, of which, never man served at the altar. 13 For he of whom these things are spoken, pertaineth unto another tribe, whereof no man served at the altar. 13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
7:14 14 For it is open [Soothly it is openly known] , that our Lord is born of Juda, in which lineage Moses spake nothing of priests. 14 For it is evident that our Lord sprung of the tribe of Juda, of {to the} which tribe spake Moses nothing concerning priesthood. 14 For it is evident, that our Lord sprung [sprong] out of Judah, concerning the which tribe Moses spake nothing, touching the Priesthood. 14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang from Judah; of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.
7:15 15 And more yet it is known, if by the order of Melchisedec another priest is risen up; [And more yet it is known, if after the order of Melchisedec another priest riseth;] 15 And it is yet a more evident thing, if after the similitude of Melchisedech there arise another priest, 15 And it is yet a more evident thing, because that after the similitude of Melchisedec, there is risen up another Priest, 15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchizedek there ariseth another priest,
7:16 16 which is not made by the law of fleshly commandment, but by [the] virtue of life that may not be undone. [the which is not made after the law of fleshly commandment, but after virtue of life indissoluble, or that may not be undone.] 16 which is not made after the law of the carnal commandment: but after the power of the endless life. 16 Which is not made Priest after the Law of the carnal commandment, but after the power of the endless life. 16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
7:17 17 For he witnesseth, That thou art a priest without end, by the order of Melchisedec; [Soothly he witnesseth, For thou art a priest into without end, after the order of Melchisedec;] 17 For he testifieth: Thou art a priest for ever, after the order of Melchisedech. 17 For he testifieth thus, Thou art a Priest forever, after the order of Melchisedec. 17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
7:18 18 that reproving of the commandment before-going is made, for the unfirmness and unprofit of it. 18 Then the commandment that went afore, is disannulled, because of his [her] weakness and unprofitableness. 18 For the commandment that went afore, is disannulled, because of the weakness thereof, and unprofitableness. 18 For there is verily a setting aside of the former commandment on account of its weakness and unprofitableness.
7:19 19 For why the law brought nothing to perfection, but there is a bringing in of a better hope, by which we approach to God [by which we nigh to God] . 19 For the law made no thing perfect: but was an introduction of a better hope, by which hope, we draw nye unto God. 19 For the Law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope made perfect, whereby we draw near unto God. 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by which we draw near to God. [the bringing...: or, it was the bringing in]
7:20 20 And how great it is, not without swearing [that Christ is made priest after the order of Melchisedec] ; 20 And for this cause it is a better hope, that it was not promised without an oath. 20 And for as much as it is not without an oath (for these are made Priests without an oath: 20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
7:21 21 but the others [forsooth others] be made priests without an oath; but this priest with an oath, by him that said to him, The Lord swore, and it shall not rue him, Thou art a priest without end, by the order of Melchisedec [Thou art a priest into without end, after the order of Melchisedec] ; 21 Those priests were made without an oath: but this priest with an oath, by him that said unto him: The Lord sware, and will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedech: 21 But this he is made with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a Priest forever, after the order of Melchisedec) 21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said to him, The Lord swore and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek:) [without...: or, without swearing of an oath]
7:22 22 in so much Jesus is made [better] promiser of the better testament. 22 And for that cause was Jesus {Thus is Iesus become} a stablisher of {of so much} a better testament. 22 By so much is Jesus made a surety of a better Testament. 22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
7:23 23 And [soothly] the others were made many priests, therefore for they were forbidden by death to dwell still [for that they were forbidden by death to dwell] ; 23 And among them many were made priests, because they were not suffered to endure by the reason of death. 23 And among them many were made Priests, because they were not suffered to endure, by the reason of death. 23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not allowed to continue by reason of death:
7:24 24 but this man, for he dwelleth without end [for that he dwelleth into without end] , hath an everlasting priesthood. 24 But this man, because he endureth ever, hath an everlasting priesthood: 24 But this man, because he endureth ever, hath a Priesthood, which can not pass from one to another. [an everlasting Priesthood.] 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. [an...: or, which passeth not from one to another]
7:25 25 Wherefore also he may save without end, coming nigh by himself to God, and evermore liveth to pray for us. [Wherefore and he may save into without end, coming nigh by himself to God, evermore living to pray for us.] 25 Wherefore he is able also ever to save them that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth, to make intercession for us. 25 Wherefore, he is able also perfectly to save them that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth, to make intercession for them. 25 Therefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. [to the...: or, evermore]
7:26 26 For it beseemed that such a man were a bishop to us, holy, innocent, undefouled, clean, separated from sinful men, and made higher than heavens; [+Forsooth it became that such a man were bishop to us, holy, innocent, unfiled, parted from sinners, and made higher than heavens;] 26 Such an high priest it becometh [became] us to have, which is wholy, [holy] harmless, {innocent} undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than heaven. 26 For such an high Priest it became us to have, which is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens: 26 For such an high priest was befitting for us, who is holy, blameless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
7:27 27 which hath not need each day, as priests, first for his own guilts to offer sacrifices, and afterward for the people; for he did this thing in offering himself once [soothly he did this thing, once offering himself] . 27 Which needeth not daily (as yonder high priests) to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's sins. For that did he at once for all, when he offered up himself: 27 Which needeth [needed] not daily as those high Priests to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the peoples: for that did he once, when he offered up himself. 27 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.
7:28 28 And the law ordained men priests having frailty [having sickness, or frailty] ; but the word of swearing, which is after the law, ordained the Son perfect without end [ordained the Son perfect into without end] . 28 For the law maketh men priests, which have infirmity: but the word of the oath that came since the law, maketh the son priest, which is perfect for evermore. 28 For the Law maketh men high Priests, which have infirmity: but the word of the oath that was since the Law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore. 28 For the law maketh men high priests who have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was after the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore. [consecrated: Gr. perfected]
8:1 1 But a recapitulation on those things that be said. We have such a bishop, that sat on the right half of the seat of greatness in heavens, 1 Of the things which we have spoken, this is the pith: that we have such an high [hye] priest that is sitten on the right hand of the seat of majesty in heaven, 1 Now of the things which we have spoken, this is the sum, that we have such an high Priest, that sitteth at the right hand of the throne of the majesty in heavens, 1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is seated on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
8:2 2 the minister of saints, and of the very tabernacle, that God made [that God set] , and not man. 2 and is a minister of wholy [holy] things, and of the very {true} tabernacle, which God pight, {pitched} and not man. 2 And is a minister of the Sanctuary, and of that [the] true Tabernacle which the Lord pitched, and not man. 2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man. [of the sanctuary: or, of holy things]
8:3 3 For each bishop is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices; wherefore it is need, that also this bishop have something that he shall offer [wherefore it is need, and this man, for to have something that he shall offer] . 3 For every high {hye} priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity, that this man have some what also to offer. 3 For every high Priest is ordained to offer both gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it was of necessity, that this man should have somewhat also to offer. 3 For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices: therefore it is of necessity that this man should have somewhat also to offer.
8:4 4 Therefore if he were on earth, he were no priest, when there were that should offer gifts by the law, [Therefore if he were on earth, he were not priest, when there were that should offer gifts after the law,] 4 For he were not a priest, if he were on the earth where are priests that according to the law offer gifts, 4 For he were not a Priest, if he were on the earth, seeing there are Priests that according to the Law offer gifts, 4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: [there...: or, they are priests]
8:5 5 which serve to the exemplar and shadow of heavenly things. As it was answered to Moses, when he should end the tabernacle, See, he said, make thou all things by the exemplar, that is showed to thee in the mount. [+which serve to the sampler, or figure, and shadow of heavenly things. As it was answered to Moses, when he should make the tabernacle, See, the Lord saith, make all things after the sampler, that is showed to thee in the mount.] 5 which priests serve unto the ensample and shadow of heavenly things: even as the answer of God was given unto Moses when he was about to finish the tabernacle: For take heed (said he) that thou make all things according to the patron shewed to thee in the mount. 5 Who serve unto the pattern and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was warned by God, when he was about to finish the Tabernacle. See, said he, that thou make all things according to the pattern, shewed to thee in the mount. 5 Who serve to the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished by God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shown to thee in the mount.
8:6 6 But now he hath gotten a better ministry, by so much as he is a mediator of a better testament [by how much and he is a mediator of a better testament] , which is confirmed with better promises. 6 Now hath he obtained a more excellent office, inasmuch as he is the mediator of a better testament, which was made for better promises. 6 But now our high Priest hath obtained a more excellent office, in as much as he is the Mediator of a better Testament, which is established upon better promises. 6 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. [covenant: or, testament]
8:7 7 For if that first had lacked blame [For if that first had been voided from blame] , the place of the second should not have been sought. 7 For if that first testament had been such a one that no man could have found fault with it: [faultless:] then should no place have been sought for the second. 7 For if that first Testament had been unblameable, [faultless,] no place should have been sought for the second. 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
8:8 8 For he reproving them saith [Forsooth reproving them he saith] , Lo! days come, saith the Lord, and I shall make perfect a new testament on the house of Israel, and on the house of Juda; 8 For in rebuking them he saith: Behold the days will come (saith the Lord) and I will finish upon the house of Israel, and upon the house of Judah, a new testament: 8 For in rebuking them he saith, Behold, the days will come, saith the Lord, when I shall make with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah a new Testament: 8 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:
8:9 9 not like the testament [not after the testament] that I made to their fathers, in the day in which I caught their hand, that I should lead them out of the land of Egypt; for they dwelled not perfectly in my testament, and I have despised them, saith the Lord. 9 not like {as} the testament that {which} I made with their fathers at that time, when I took them by the hands, to lead them out of the land of Egypt, for they continued not in my testament, and I regarded them not saith the Lord. 9 Not like the Testament that I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand, to lead them out of the land of Egypt: for they continued not in my Testament, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 9 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.
8:10 10 But this is the testament, which I shall assign to the house of Israel after those days [+For this is the testament, which I shall dispose to the house of Israel after those days] , saith the Lord, in giving my laws into the souls of them, and into the hearts of them I shall above write them; and I shall be to them into a God [and I shall be to them into God] , and they shall be to me into a people. 10 For this is the testament that I will make with the house of Israel: After those days (saith the Lord:) I will put {give} my laws in their minds, {mind} and in their hearts, I will write them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 10 For this is the Testament that I will make with the house of Israel, After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my Laws in their mind, and in their heart I will write them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people, 10 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: [put: Gr. give] [in: or, upon]
8:11 11 And each man shall not teach his neighbour, and each man his brother, saying, Know thou the Lord; for all men shall know me, from the least to the more of them [from the less unto the more of them] . 11 And they shall not teach, every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying: know the Lord: For they shall know me, from the least to the most of them: 11 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 of them to the greatest of them. 11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
8:12 12 For I shall be merciful to the wickedness of them, and now I shall not bethink on the sins of them. 12 For I will be merciful over their iniquities: and on their sins and on their unrighteousness, will I not think any more. [For I will be merciful over their unrighteousness, and on their sins and on their iniquities.] 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and I will remember their sins and their iniquities no more. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
8:13 13 But in saying a new, the former waxed old; and that that is of many days, and waxeth old, is nigh the death [is nigh death] . 13 In that he saith a new testament, he hath abrogate {weareth out} the old. Now that which is disannulled {worn out} and waxed old, is ready to vanish away. 13 In that he saith a new Testament, he hath abrogated the old: now that which is disannulled and waxed old, is ready to vanish away. 13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and groweth old is ready to vanish away.
9:1 1 [Soothly] And the former testament had justifyings of worship, and holy thing during for a time [and holy thing worldly, that is, during for a time] . 1 That first tabernacle verily had justifyings, [ordinances] and servings of God, and worldly {outward} holiness. 1 Then the first Testament had also ordinances of religion, and a worldly Sanctuary. 1 Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and an earthly sanctuary. [ordinances: or, ceremonies]
9:2 2 For the tabernacle was made first, in which were candlesticks, and [a] board, and setting forth of loaves [and putting forth of loaves] , which is said holy. 2 For that first tabernacle was made, [for there was a fore tabernacle made,] wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shew bread, which is called wholy. {Holy.} 2 For the first Tabernacle was made, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread, which Tabernacle is called the Holy places. 2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, in which was the lampstand, and the table, and the showbread; which is called the sanctuary. [the sanctuary: or, holy]
9:3 3 And after the veil, the second tabernacle, that is said sanctum sanctorum, that is, holy of holy things; 3 Within {But behind} the second veil was the tabernacle, [But within the second vayle was there a tabernacle,] which is called holiest of all, 3 And after the second veil [vail] was the Tabernacle, which is called the Holiest of all, 3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;
9:4 4 having a golden censer, and the ark of the testament, covered about on each side with gold, in which was a pot of gold having manna, and the rod of Aaron that flowered [and the rod of Aaron that flourished] , and the tables of the testament; 4 which had the golden censer, and the ark of the testament overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot with Manna, and Aaron's rod that sprung, {flourished} and the tables of the testament. 4 Which had the golden censer, and the Ark of the Testament overlaid round about with gold, wherein the golden pot, which had Manna, was, and Aaron's rod that had budded, and the tables of the Testament. 4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
9:5 5 on which things were cherubims of glory, overshadowing the propitiatory [upon which things were cherubims of glory, shadowing the propitiatory, or mercyable place] ; of which things it is not now to say by all. 5 Over the ark {Above therein} were the cherubims of glory shadowing the seat of grace. {overshadowing the Mercyseat} Of which things, we will not now speak particularly. 5 And over the Ark were the glorious Cherubims, shadowing the mercyseat: of which things we will not now speak particularly. 5 And over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.
9:6 6 But when these were made thus together, priests entered evermore in the former tabernacle, doing the offices of sacrifices [ending the offices of sacraments] ; 6 When these things were thus ordained, the priests went always [all ways] into the first tabernacle and executed the service of God: 6 Now when these things were thus ordained, the Priests went always into the first Tabernacle, and accomplished the service. 6 Now when these things were thus prepared, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.
9:7 7 but in the second tabernacle, the bishop [alone] entered once in the year, not without blood, which he offered for his ignorance and the people's. 7 [But] Into the second went the high priest alone, once every {in the} year: but [and] not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the ignorance of the people: 7 But into the second went the high Priest alone, once every year, not without blood which he offered for himself, and for the ignorance's of the people. 7 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:
9:8 8 For the Holy Ghost signified this thing [The Holy Ghost signifying this thing] , that not yet the way of saints was opened, while the former tabernacle had state. 8 [Wherewith] The holy ghost this signifying, that the way of holy things {holiness} was not yet opened, while as yet the first tabernacle was standing, 8 Whereby the holy Ghost this signified, that the way into the Holiest of all was not yet opened, while as yet the first tabernacle was standing, 8 The Holy Spirit thus signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet revealed, while the first tabernacle was yet standing:
9:9 9 Which parable is of this present time, by which also gifts and sacrifices be offered, which be not able to make [which may not make] a man serving perfect by conscience, 9 which was a similitude of this present time, [a similitude for the tyme then present,] in which gifts and sacrifices are offered, which can [the time then present, and in which were offered gifts and sacrifices that could] not make them that minister perfect, {him, that did the Gods service} as pertaining to the conscience, 9 Which was a figure for that present time, [the time present,] wherein were offered gifts and sacrifices that could not make holy, concerning the conscience, him that did the service, 9 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;
9:10 10 only in meats, and drinks, and diverse washings, and rightwisenesses of flesh, that were set to the time of correction [put unto the time of correction] . 10 with meats only and drinks, and divers washings, and justifyings of the flesh, which were ordained until the time of reformation. 10 Which only stood in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal rites, which were enjoined, until the time of reformation. 10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and various washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. [ordinances: or, rites, or, ceremonies]
9:11 11 But Christ being a bishop of goods to coming, entered by a larger and perfecter tabernacle [Forsooth Christ being a bishop of goods to come, by a larger and perfecter tabernacle] , not made by hand, that is to say, not of this making, 11 But Christ being an high {hye} priest of good things to come, came by a greater, and a more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands: that is to say, not of this manner building, 11 But Christ being come an high Priest of good things to come, by a greater and a more perfect Tabernacle, not made with hands, that is, not of this building, 11 But Christ became 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;
9:12 12 neither by blood of goat bucks, or of calves, but by his own blood, entered once into the holy things, that were found by an everlasting redemption. [neither by blood of goat bucks, or calves, but by his own blood, entered once into holy things, when everlasting redemption was found.] 12 neither by the blood of goats, and calves: but by his own blood, he [we] entered once for all into the wholy [holy] place, and found eternal redemption. 12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves: but by his own blood entered he in once unto the holy place, and obtained eternal redemption for us. 12 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.
9:13 13 For if the blood of goat bucks, and of bulls, and the ashes of a cow calf sprinkled, halloweth unclean men to the cleansing of flesh, 13 For if the blood of oxen, and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer, when it was sprinkled, purified {halloweth} the unclean, as touching the purifying {purification} of the flesh: 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer, sprinkling them that are unclean, sanctifieth as touching the purifying of the flesh, 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctify to the purifying of the flesh:
9:14 14 how much more the blood of Christ, which by the Holy Ghost offered himself unwemmed to God, shall cleanse our conscience from dead works, to serve God that liveth [for to serve to living God] ? 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ (which thorow the eternal spirit, offered himself without spot to God) purge our [your] consciences from dead works, for to serve the living God? 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ which through the eternal Spirit offered himself without fault [spot] to God, purge your conscience from dead works, to serve the living God? 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? [spot: or, fault]
9:15 15 And therefore he is a mediator of the new testament, that by death falling betwixt [that death falling between] , into redemption of the trespassings that were under the former testament, they that be called take the promise of everlasting heritage. 15 And for this cause is he the mediator of the new testament, that as sone (as his death was fulfilled for the redemption [that thorow death which chanced for the redemption] of those transgressions that were in the first testament) they which were called, might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 15 And for this cause is he the Mediator of the new Testament, that through death which was for the redemption of the transgressions that were in the former Testament, they which were called, might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 15 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 who are called may receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
9:16 16 For where a testament is, it is need, that the death of the testament maker come betwixt [come between] . 16 For wheresoever is a testament, there must also be the death of him that maketh the testament. 16 For where a Testament is, there must be the death of him that made the Testament. 16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. [be: or, be brought in]
9:17 17 For a testament is confirmed in dead men; else it is not worth [else it is (of) no worth] , while he liveth, that made the testament. 17 For the testament taketh authority when men are dead: For it is of no value as long as he that made it is alive. 17 For the Testament is confirmed when men are dead: for it is yet of no force as long as he that made it, is alive. 17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
9:18 18 Wherefore neither the first testament was hallowed without blood. 18 For which cause also, neither that first testament was ordained without blood. 18 Wherefore neither was the first ordained without blood. 18 Hence even the first testament was not dedicated without blood. [dedicated: or, purified]
9:19 19 For when each commandment of the law was read of Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves, and of bucks of goats, with water, and red wool, and hyssop, and besprinkled [sprinkled] both that book and all the people, 19 For when all the commandments were read of Moses unto all the people, he took the blood of calves, and of goats, with water and purple wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to the people, according to the Law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water and purple wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 19 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, [scarlet: or, purple]
9:20 20 and said [saying] , This is the blood of the testament, that God commanded to you. 20 saying this is the blood of the testament, which God hath appointed unto you. 20 Saying, This is the blood of the Testament, which God hath appointed unto you. 20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath commanded you.
9:21 21 Also he sprinkled with blood the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the service in like manner [and all the vessels of ministry, or service, in like manner] . 21 Moreover, he sprinkled the tabernacle with blood also, and all the ministering vessels. {vessels of the Gods service} 21 Moreover, he sprinkled likewise the Tabernacle with blood also, and all the ministering vessels. 21 Moreover he sprinkled likewise with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
9:22 22 And almost all things be cleansed in blood by the law; and without shedding of blood remission of sins is not made. 22 And almost all things, according to [are by] the law, are cleansed [purged] with blood, and without effusion [shedding] of blood, is no remission. 22 And almost all things are by the Law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood is no remission. 22 And almost all things are by the law cleansed with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
9:23 23 Therefore it is need, that the exemplars [that the samplers] of heavenly things be cleansed with these things; but those heavenly things with better sacrifices than these. 23 It is then need {necessary} that the similitudes of heavenly things, be purified with such things: but the heavenly things themselves are purified with better sacrifices than are these. [those.] 23 It was then necessary, that the similitudes of heavenly things should be purified with such things: but the heavenly things themselves are purified with better sacrifices than are these. 23 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.
9:24 24 For Jesus entered not into holy things made by hands, that be [the] exemplars of very things, but into heaven itself, that he appear now to the face of God for us; [+Forsooth Jesus entered not into holy things made by hands, the which be samplers of very things, but into heavens itself, that he appear now to the cheer, or face, of God for us;] 24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places, that are made with hands, which are but similitudes of true things: but is entered into very heaven, for to appear now in the sight {before the face} of God for us. 24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places that are made with hands, which are similitudes of the true Sanctuary: but is entered into very heaven, to appear now in the sight of God for us, 24 For Christ hath 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:
9:25 25 neither [nor] that he offer himself oft, as the bishop entered into holy things by all years in alien blood, 25 Not to offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with strange blood: 25 Not that he should offer himself often, as the high Priest entered into the Holy place every year with other blood, 25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;
9:26 26 else it behooved him to suffer oft [else it behooved him oft to suffer] from the beginning of the world; but now once in the ending of the worlds, to the destruction of sin by his sacrifice he appeared. 26 for then must he have often suffered since the world began: But now in the end of the world, hath he appeared once for all, [hath he appeared once,] to put sin to flight, by the offering up of himself. 26 (For then must he have often suffered since the foundation of the world) but now in the end of the world hath he been made manifest, [appearted] once to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 26 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.
9:27 27 And as it is ordained to men, once to die, but after this is the doom, 27 And as it is appointed unto men that they shall once die, and then cometh the judgment, 27 And as it is appointed unto men that they shall once die, and after that cometh the judgement: 27 And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment:
9:28 28 so Christ was offered once, to void the sins of many men [for to void, or do away, the sins of many men] ; the second time he shall appear without sin to men that abide him into health. 28 even so Christ was once offered to take away the sins of many, and unto them that look for him, shall he appear again, without sin unto their health. [salvation.] 28 So Christ was once offered to take away the sins of many, and unto them that look for him, shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to them that look for him he shall appear the second time without sin to salvation.
10:1 1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, not that image of things, may never make men approaching perfect by those same sacrifices, which they offer without ceasing by all years; [Forsooth the law having shadow of goods to come, not that image of things, by all years by those same hosts, which they offer without ceasing, never may make men coming nigh perfect;] 1 For the law which hath but the shadow of good things to come, and not the things in their own fashion, can never with the sacrifices which they offer year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 1 For the Law having the shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices, which they offer year by year continually, sanctify the comers thereunto. 1 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 to them perfect.
10:2 2 else they should have ceased to be offered, for as much as the worshippers cleansed once, had not furthermore conscience of sin [had no conscience of sin furthermore] . 2 For would not then those sacrifices have ceased to have been offered? because that the offerers once purged, should have had no more consciences of sins. 2 For would they not then have ceased to have been offered, because that the offerers once purged, should have had no more conscience of sins? 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once cleansed should have had no more conscience of sins. [would...: or, they would have ceased to be offered, because, etc.]
10:3 3 But in them [by oft offering] mind of sins is made by all years. 3 Nevertheless in those sacrifices is there mention {a rememberance} made of sins every year. 3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again of sins every year. 3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
10:4 4 For it is impossible that sins be done away by blood of bulls, and of bucks of goats. 4 For it is unpossible that the blood of oxen, and of goats should take away sins. 4 For it is unpossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins. 4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
10:5 5 Therefore he entering into the world, saith, Thou wouldest not sacrifice and offering; but thou hast shaped a body to me; 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith: Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not have: but a body hast thou ordained me, 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not: but a body hast thou ordained me. 5 Therefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: [hast...: or, thou hast fitted me]
10:6 6 [and] burnt sacrifices also for sin pleased not to thee. 6 holocausts and sacrifice for sin thou hast not allowed. [In sacrifices and sinofferings thou hast no lust.] 6 In burnt offerings, and sin offerings thou hast had no pleasure. 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
10:7 7 Then I said, Lo! I come; in the beginning of the book it is written of me, that I do thy will, [thou] God. 7 Then I said: Lo I come; In the beginning of the book it is written of me, [In the chiefest of the book it is written of me,] that I should do thy will, o God. 7 Then I said, Lo, I come (In the beginning of the book it is written of me) that I should do thy will, O God. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
10:8 8 He saying before, That thou wouldest not sacrifices, and offerings, and burnt sacrifices for sin [He above saying, or before, For thou wouldest not hosts, and offerings, and burnt sacrifices, for sin] , nor those things be pleasant to thee, which be offered by the law, 8 Above when he sayeth [had said] sacrifice, and offering, and holocausts, [burntsacrifices] and sacrifice for sin, [sinofferings] thou wouldest not have, neither hast allowed (which [yet] are offered by the law) 8 Above, when he said, Sacrifice and offering, and burnt offerings, and sin offerings thou wouldest not have, neither hadst pleasure therein (which are offered by the Law) 8 Before when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure in them; which are offered by the law;
10:9 9 then I said, Lo! I come, that I do thy will, God. He doeth away the first, that he make steadfast the second. 9 [And] then he said: Lo I am ready [come to] do thy will o God: he taketh away the first to stablish the latter. 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God, he taketh away the first, that he may stablish the second. 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
10:10 10 In which will we be hallowed by the offering of the body of Christ Jesus once. 10 By the which will we are sanctified, by the offering of the body of Jesu Christ once for all. 10 By the which will we are sanctified, even by the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once made. 10 By that will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
10:11 11 And each priest is ready ministering each day, and oft times offering the same sacrifices, which be never able to do away sins. [+And soothly each priest is ready each day ministering, and oft times offering the same hosts, which may never do away sins.] 11 And every priest is ready daily ministering, and often times offereth one manner of offering, which can never take away sins: 11 And every Priest standeth [appeareth] daily ministering, and oft times offereth one manner of offering, which can never take away sins: 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering often the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
10:12 12 But this man offering one sacrifice for sins, for evermore sitteth in the right half of God the Father [for evermore sitteth on the right half of God the Father] ; 12 but this man after he had offered one sacrifice for sins, {which is of value for ever} sat him down for ever on the right hand of God, 12 But this man after he had offered one sacrifice for sins, sitteth forever at the right hand of God, 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
10:13 13 from thenceforth abiding, till his enemies be put a stool of his feet [till his enemies be put a stool under his feet] . 13 and from henceforth tarrieth till his foes be made his footstool. 13 And from henceforth tarrieth, til his enemies be made his footstool. 13 From henceforth waiting till his enemies are made his footstool.
10:14 14 For by one offering he made perfect for ever hallowed men. 14 For with one offering hath he made perfect for ever them that are sanctified. 14 For with one offering hath he consecrated forever them that are sanctified. 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
10:15 15 And the Holy Ghost witnesseth to us; for after that he said [forsooth afterward he said] , 15 And the holy ghost also beareth us record of this, even when he told {said} before: 15 For the holy Ghost also beareth us record: for after that he had said before, 15 Of this the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
10:16 16 This is the testament, which I shall witness to them after those days, the Lord saith [saith the Lord] , in giving my laws in the hearts of them, and in the souls of them I shall above write them; 16 This is the testament that I will make unto them after those days saith the Lord. And I will put my laws in their hearts, and in their minds I will write them, 16 This is the Testament that I will make unto them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my Laws in their heart, and in their minds I will write them. 16 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;
10:17 17 and now I shall no more think on the sins and the wickedness of them [and wickednesses of them] . 17 and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. [And their: some copies have, Then he said, And their]
10:18 18 And where remission of these is, now is there none offering for sin. 18 And where remission of these things is, there is no more offering for sin. 18 Now where remission of these things is, there is no more offering for sin. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
10:19 19 Therefore, brethren, having trust into the entering of holy things in the blood of Christ, 19 Seeing brethren that by the means of the blood of Jesu, we may be bold to enter {that we have a free sure intrance} into that holy place, 19 Seeing therefore, brethren, that by the blood of Jesus we may be bold to enter into the Holy place, 19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, [boldness: or, liberty]
10:20 20 which [he] hallowed to us a new way, and living by the covering [by a veil, or covering] , that is to say, his flesh, 20 by the new and living way, which he hath prepared for us, through the veil, that is to say by his flesh. 20 By the new and living way, which he hath prepared for us, through the veil, [vail] that is, his flesh: 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; [consecrated: or, new made]
10:21 21 and we having the great priest on [upon] the house of God, 21 And seeing also that we have an high {hye} priest which is ruler over the house of God, 21 And seeing we have an high Priest, which is over the house of God, 21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
10:22 22 approach we with very heart in the plenty of faith [nigh we with very heart in the plenty of faith] ; and be our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with clean water, 22 let us draw nye with a true heart in a full faith sprinkled in our hearts, from an evil conscience, and washed in our bodies with pure water, 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in assurance of faith, our hearts being pure [faith, sprinkled in our hearts] from an evil conscience, 22 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.
10:23 23 and hold we the confession of our hope, bowing to no side [hold we the confession of our hope unbowing, unpliable] ; for he is true that hath made the promise. 23 and let us keep the profession of our hope, without wavering (for he is faithful that promised) 23 And washed in our bodies with pure water, let us keep the profession of our hope, without wavering, (for he is faithful that promised) 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
10:24 24 And behold we together in the stirring of charity and of good works; 24 and let us consider one another to provoke unto love, {the provoking of love} and to good works: 24 And let us consider one another, to provoke unto love, and to good works, 24 And let us consider one another to stir up to love and to good works:
10:25 25 not forsaking our gathering together, as it is the custom to some men, but comforting [them] , and by so much the more, by how much ye see the day approaching. [+not forsaking our gathering together, as it is of custom of some men, but counseling them, and by so much the more, by how much ye shall see the day nighing.] 25 and let us not forsake the fellowship that we have among ourselves, as the manner of some is: but let us exhort one another, and that so much the more, because ye see that the day draweth nye. 25 Not forsaking the fellowship that we have among ourselves, as the manner of some is: but let us exhort one another, and that so much the more, because ye see that the day draweth near. 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
10:26 26 For why now a sacrifice for sins is not left to us, that sin willfully, after that we have taken the knowing of truth. [Forsooth to us sinning willfully, after the knowing of truth taken, now an host for sins is not left.] 26 For if we sin willingly {willfully} after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins: 26 For if we sin willingly after that we have received and acknowledged that [received the knowledge of the] truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 26 For if we sin wilfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
10:27 27 For why some abiding of doom is dreadful, and the following of fire, which shall waste adversaries. 27 but a fearful looking for judgment, and violent fire, which shall devour the adversaries. 27 But a fearful looking for of judgement, and violent fire, which shall devour the adversaries. 27 But a certain fearful expectation of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
10:28 28 Who that breaketh Moses' law, dieth without any mercy, by two or three witnesses; 28 He that despiseth Moses' law, dieth without mercy under two or three witnesses. 28 He that despiseth Moses' Law, dieth without mercy under two, or three witnesses: 28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
10:29 29 how much more guess ye, that he deserveth worse torments [him to deserve worse torments] , which defouleth the Son of God, and holdeth the blood of the testament polluted, in which he is hallowed, and doeth despite [and shall do wrong, or despite,] to the Spirit of grace? 29 Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye shall he be counted worthy, which treadeth under foot the son of God: and counteth the blood of the testament as an unholy thing, wherewith he was {is} sanctified, and doth dishonour to the spirit of grace. 29 Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye shall he be worthy, which treadeth under foot the Son of God, and counteth the blood of the Testament as an unholy thing, wherewith he was sanctified, and doeth despite the Spirit of grace? 29 Of how much more severe 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, by which he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite to the Spirit of grace?
10:30 30 For we know him that said, To me vengeance, and I shall yield. And again, For the Lord shall deem his people. 30 For we know him that hath said, vengeance belongeth unto me, {Vengance is mine} I will recompense saith the Lord. And again: the Lord shall judge his people. 30 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. 30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth to me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
10:31 31 It is fearedful to fall into the hands of God living. [+It is fearful to fall into the hands of living God.] 31 It [Hit] is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
10:32 32 And have ye mind on the former days, in which ye were lightened, and suffered great strife of passions [in which ye lightened sustained great strife, or fight, of passions] . 32 Call to remembrance the days that are passed in the which, after ye had received light, ye abode [endured] a great fight in adversities, 32 Now call to remembrance the days that are passed, in the which, after ye had received light, ye endured a great fight in afflictions, 32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
10:33 33 And in the tother ye were made a spectacle by shames and tribulations; in another ye were made fellows of men living so. [And soothly in the tother ye were made a spectacle by reproofs and tribulations; in the tother forsooth ye be made fellows of men living so.] 33 partly while all men wondered and gazed at you for the shame and tribulation that was done unto you, and partly while ye became companions of them which so passed their time. 33 Partly while ye [you] were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions, and partly while ye became companions of them which were so tossed to and fro. 33 Partly, while ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, while ye became companions of them that were so used.
10:34 34 For also to bound men ye had compassion, and ye received with joy the robbing of your goods, knowing that ye have a better and a dwelling substance [and ye received with joy the raven of your goods, knowing you to have a better and dwelling substance] . 34 For ye suffered also with my bonds, and took a [in] worth the spoiling of your goods, and that with gladness, remembering [knowing] in yourselves how that ye had in heaven a better, and an enduring substance. 34 For both ye sorrowed with me for my bonds, and suffered with joy the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves how that ye have in heaven a better, and an enduring substance. 34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the plundering of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
10:35 35 Therefore do not ye lose your trust, which hath great rewarding. 35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great reward to recompense. {hath so great a reward} 35 Cast not away therefore your confidence which hath great recompense of reward. 35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
10:36 36 For patience is needful to you, that ye do the will of God, and bring again the promise [that ye doing the will of God, bring again the promise] . 36 For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 36 For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye may receive the promise.
10:37 37 For yet a little, and he that is to come shall come, and he shall not tarry. 37 For yet a very {over a} little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry: 37 For yet a very little while, and he that shall come, will come, and will not tarry. 37 For yet a little while, and he that is coming will come, and will not tarry.
10:38 38 For my just man liveth of faith; that if he withdraweth himself, he shall not please to my soul. 38 But the just shall live by faith. And if he withdraw himself, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any withdraw himself, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man shall draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
10:39 39 But we be not the sons of withdrawing away into perdition, but of faith into [the] getting of soul. 39 We are not which withdraw ourselves unto damnation, but pertain to faith, for to win our souls. [to the winning of the soul.] {but of them that believe to the winning of the soul} 39 But we are not they which withdraw ourselves unto perdition, but follow faith unto the conservation of the soul. 39 But we are not of them who draw back to perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
11:1 1 But faith is the substance of things that be to be hoped, and an argument of things not appearing. [Forsooth faith is the substance of things to be hoped, an argument, or certainty, of things not appearing.] 1 Faith is a sure confidence of things which are hoped for, and a certainty of things which are not seen. 1 Now faith is the grounds [ground] of things, which are hoped for, and the evidence of things which are not seen. 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [substance: or, ground, or, confidence]
11:2 2 And in this faith old men have gotten witnessing. 2 By it the elders were well reported of. 2 For by it our elders were well reported of. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
11:3 3 By faith we understand that the worlds were made by God's word [By faith we understand the worlds to be shaped, or made, by Godís word] , that visible things were made of invisible things. 3 Thorow faith we understand that the world was ordained, by the word of God: That by the means of things which appear, things which are invisible might be known. [and that things which are seen, were made of things which are not seen.] 3 Through faith we understand that the world was ordained by the word of God, so that the things which we see, are not made of things which did appear. 3 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 are visible.
11:4 4 By faith Abel offered a much more sacrifice than Cain to God, by which he got witnessing to be just, for God bare witnessing to his gifts [+By faith Abel offered full much more host, or sacrifice, to God than Cain, by which he got witnessing to be just, God bearing witnessing to his gifts] ; and by that faith he dead speaketh yet. 4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more plenteous sacrifice than Cain: by which, he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: by which also he being dead, yet speaketh. 4 By faith Abel offered unto God a greater sacrifice than Cain, by the which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: by the which faith also he being dead, yet speaketh. 4 By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained the testimony that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. [yet...: or, is yet spoken of]
11:5 5 By faith Enoch was translated, that he should not see death; and he was not found, for the Lord translated him. For before [the] translation he had witnessing that he pleased God. 5 By faith was Enoch translated {taken away} that he should not see death: neither was he found: for God had taken him away. Before he was taken away, he obtained record, [was reported of] that he had pleased God: 5 By faith was Enoch translated, [taken away,] that he should not see death: neither was he found: for God had translated him: [taken him away:] for before he was translated, [taken away] he was reported of, that he had pleased God. 5 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.
11:6 6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. For it behooveth that a man coming to God, believe that he is, and that he is [a] rewarder of men that seek him. 6 but without faith it is unpossible to please him. For he that cometh to God, must believe that God is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek him. 6 But without faith it is unpossible to please him: for he that cometh to God, must believe that God is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek him. 6 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.
11:7 7 By faith Noah dreaded, through answer taken of these things that yet were not seen, and shaped a ship into the health of his house [By faith Noah, an answer taken of these things that yet were not seen, dreading shaped an ark, or ship, into the health of his house] ; by which he condemned the world, and is ordained heir of rightwiseness, which is by faith. 7 By faith Noah honoured God, after that he was warned of things which were not seen, and prepared the ark to the saving of his household, thorow the which ark he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which cometh by faith. 7 By faith Noah being warned of God of the things which were as yet not seen, moved with reverence, prepared the Ark to the saving of his household, through the which Ark he condemned the world, and was made heir of the righteousness, which is by faith. 7 By faith Noah, being warned by God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
