Hebrews 10:36-39 New International Version (NIV)
36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. 37 For,
“In just a little while,
39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.
Hebrews 10:36-39 Amplified Bible (AMP)
36 For you have need of patient endurance [to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising], so that when you have carried out the will of God, you may receive and enjoy to the full what is promised.
39 But [a]our way is not that of those who shrink back to destruction, but [we are] of those who believe [relying on God through faith in Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by this confident faith preserve the soul.
Hebrews 10:36-39 New Living Translation (NLT)
36 Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.
39 But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved.
Hebrews 10:36-39 Common English Bible (CEB)
36 You need to endure so that you can receive the promises after you do God’s will.
37 In a little while longer,
39 But we aren’t the sort of people who timidly draw back and end up being destroyed. We’re the sort of people who have faith so that our whole beings are preserved.
Hebrews 10:36-39 The Message (MSG)
32-39 Remember those early days after you first saw the light? Those were the hard times! Kicked around in public, targets of every kind of abuse—some days it was you, other days your friends. If some friends went to prison, you stuck by them. If some enemies broke in and seized your goods, you let them go with a smile, knowing they couldn’t touch your real treasure. Nothing they did bothered you, nothing set you back. So don’t throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves then. It’s still a sure thing! But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion.
It won’t be long now, he’s on the way;
But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.
