Hebrews 6:12-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

12 so that you may not become sluggish, but imitators of those who, through faith and patience, are inheriting the promises.[a]

God’s Promise Immutable. 13 [b]When God made the promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, “he swore by himself,” 14 and said, “I will indeed bless you and multiply” you.

Footnotes:

  1. 6:12 Imitators of those…inheriting the promises: the author urges the addressees to imitate the faith of the holy people of the Old Testament, who now possess the promised goods of which they lived in hope. This theme will be treated fully in Hb 6:11.
  2. 6:13 He swore by himself: God’s promise to Abraham, which he confirmed by an oath (“I swear by myself,” Gn 22:16) was the basis for the hope of all Abraham’s descendants.
