Hebrews 6:12-14 New Testament for Everyone (NTE)
12 You mustn’t become lazy. There are people who are inheriting the promises through faith and patience, and you should copy them!
God’s Unchangeable Promise
13 When God was making his promise to Abraham, you see, he had nobody else greater than himself by whom he could swear, and so he swore by himself, 14 with the words, ‘I will most surely bless you, and multiply you very greatly.’
Hebrews 6:12-14 New International Version (NIV)
12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
The Certainty of God’s Promise
13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.”[a]
