New King James Version
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted (A)the heavenly gift, and (B)have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 [a]if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, (C)since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, (D)receives blessing from God; 8 (E)but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.
