Warning Against Falling Away(A)

11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths(B) of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!(C) 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant,(D) is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature,(E) who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.(F)

Therefore let us move beyond(G) the elementary teachings(H) about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death,[a](I) and of faith in God, instruction about cleansing rites,[b](J) the laying on of hands,(K) the resurrection of the dead,(L) and eternal judgment. And God permitting,(M) we will do so.


  1. Hebrews 6:1 Or from useless rituals
  2. Hebrews 6:2 Or about baptisms

11 论到麦基洗德,我们有好些话,并且难以解明,因为你们听不进去。 12 看你们学习的工夫,本该做师傅,谁知还得有人将神圣言小学的开端另教导你们,并且成了那必须吃奶、不能吃干粮的人! 13 凡只能吃奶的,都不熟练仁义的道理,因为他是婴孩。 14 唯独长大成人的才能吃干粮,他们的心窍习练得通达,就能分辨好歹了。


所以,我们应当离开基督道理的开端,竭力进到完全的地步,不必再立根基,就如那懊悔死行、信靠神、 各样洗礼、按手之礼、死人复活,以及永远审判各等教训。 神若许我们,我们必如此行。
