Hebrews 6:11-13 The Passion Translation (TPT)

11 But we long to see you passionately advance until the end and you find your hope fulfilled. 12 So don’t allow your hearts to grow dull[a] or lose your enthusiasm, but follow the example of those who fully received what God has promised[b] because of their strong faith and patient endurance.[c]

God’s Faithful Promise

13 Now when God made a promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater than himself, he swore an oath on his own integrity[d] to keep the promise as sure as God exists!


  1. Hebrews 6:12 The Greek word for “dull of heart is nothros, which is taken from a root word meaning “illegitimate child.” The implication is that we don’t see ourselves as a child of illegitimacy, but as a child of intimacy, and that keeps our relationship fervent and passionate.
  2. Hebrews 6:12 The Aramaic can be translated “to those who were heirs of the royal proclamation.”
  3. Hebrews 6:12 The Aramaic can be translated “because of their faith and the outpouring of the Spirit.”
  4. Hebrews 6:13 See Gen. 22:16-17.
