Hebrews
From the Original 1599 Geneva Bible Notes

 

Heb 1:1

1:1 God, who at {1} sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

The purpose of this epistle, is to show that Jesus Christ the Son of God both God and man is that true eternal and only Prophet, King and High Priest, that was shadowed by the figures of the old law, and is now indeed exhibited of whom the whole Church ought to be taught, governed and sanctified.

Heb 1:2

1:2 Hath in these {a} last days spoken unto us by [his] {b} Son, {2} whom he hath appointed {c} heir of all things, by whom also he made the {d} worlds;

Heb 1:3

1:3 Who being the {e} brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his {f} person, and {g} upholding all things by the word of his power, {3} when he had by himself purged our sins, {h} sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Heb 1:4

1:4 {4} Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent {i} name than they.

Heb 1:5

1:5 {5} For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, {k} this day have I begotten thee? {6} And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

Heb 1:6

1:6 {7} And {l} again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

Heb 1:7

1:7 {8} And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels {m} spirits, and his ministers a {n} flame of fire.

Heb 1:8

1:8 But unto the Son [he saith], Thy {o} throne, O God, [is] for ever {p} and ever: a {q} sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Heb 1:9

1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated {r} iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath {s} anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy {t} fellows.

Heb 1:10

1:10 {9} And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast {u} laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

Heb 1:13

1:13 {10} But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

Heb 1:14

1:14 Are they not all {x} ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Heb 2:1

2:1 Therefore {1} we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which {a} we have heard, lest at any time we {b} should let [them] slip.

Heb 2:2

2:2 For if the {c} word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

Heb 2:3

2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; {2} which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by {d} them that heard [him];

Heb 2:4

2:4 God also bearing [them] witness, both with {e} signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

Heb 2:5

2:5 {3} For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the {f} world to come, whereof we speak.

Heb 2:6

2:6 {4} But one in a certain place testified, saying, {g} What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the {h} son of man, that thou visitest him?

Heb 2:7

2:7 Thou {i} madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with {k} glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:

Heb 2:8

2:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing [that is] not put under him. {5} But now we see not yet all things put under him.

Heb 2:9

2:9 {6} But we {l} see Jesus, who was made a little {m} lower than the angels {7} for the {n} suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should {o} taste death for {8} every man.

Heb 2:10

2:10 {9} For it became {p} him, for whom [are] all things, and by whom [are] all things, {10} in bringing many sons unto glory, {11} to make the {q} captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Heb 2:11

2:11 {12} For both he that {r} sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [are] all of {s} one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Heb 2:12

2:12 {13} Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

Heb 2:13

2:13 {14} And again, I will put my {t} trust in him. And again, {u} Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

Heb 2:14

2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are {x} partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the {y} power of death, that is, the {z} devil;

Heb 2:15

2:15 And deliver them who through fear of {a} death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Heb 2:16

2:16 {15} For verily he took not on [him the {b} nature of] angels; but he took on [him] the {c} seed of Abraham.

Heb 2:17

2:17 {16} Wherefore in {d} all things it behoved him to be made like unto [his] brethren, that he might be a {e} merciful and {f} faithful high priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

Heb 2:18

2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being {g} tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Heb 3:1

3:1 Wherefore, {1} holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the {a} Apostle and High Priest of our {b} profession, Christ Jesus;

Heb 3:2

3:2 {2} Who was faithful to him that {c} appointed him, {3} as also Moses [was faithful] in all his house.

Heb 3:3

3:3 {4} For this [man] was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

Heb 3:5

3:5 And {5} Moses verily [was] faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

Heb 3:6

3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house; {6} whose {d} house are we, if we hold fast the {e} confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

Heb 3:7

3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye {f} will hear his voice,

Heb 3:8

3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the {g} provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

Heb 3:10

3:10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway {h} err in [their] heart; and they have not known my ways.

Heb 3:12

3:12 {7} Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

Heb 3:13

3:13 But exhort one another daily, {i} while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Heb 3:14

3:14 {8} For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the {k} beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

Heb 3:15

3:15 {l} While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

Heb 4:2

4:2 {1} For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being {a} mixed with faith in them that heard [it].

Heb 4:3

4:3 {2} For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

Heb 4:8

4:8 For if {b} Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.

Heb 4:10

4:10 {c} For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his.

Heb 4:11

4:11 {3} Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest {d} any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Heb 4:12

4:12 {4} For the {e} word of God [is] {f} quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of {g} soul and {h} spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Heb 4:13

4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in {i} his sight: but all things [are] naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Heb 4:14

4:14 {5} Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us {k} hold fast [our] profession.

Heb 4:15

4:15 {6} For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

Heb 5:1

5:1 For {1} every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things [pertaining] to God, {2} that he may offer both {a} gifts and {b} sacrifices for sins:

Heb 5:2

5:2 Who {c} can have compassion on the ignorant, and {d} on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is {e} compassed with infirmity.

Heb 5:4

5:4 {3} And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as [was] Aaron.

Heb 5:6

5:6 As he saith also in another [place], Thou [art] a priest for ever after the {f} order of Melchisedec.

Heb 5:7

5:7 {4} Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to {h} save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

Heb 5:8

5:8 Though he were a Son, yet {i} learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Heb 5:9

5:9 {5} And being made {k} perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Heb 5:11

5:11 {6} Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.

Heb 5:12

5:12 {7} For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which [be] the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

Heb 5:13

5:13 For every one that useth milk [is] unskilful in the {l} word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

Heb 5:14

5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their {m} senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Heb 6:1

6:1 Therefore leaving the {a} principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; {1} not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Heb 6:4

6:4 {2} For [it is] {b} impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have {c} tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

Heb 6:6

6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they {d} crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put [him] to an open shame.

Heb 6:7

6:7 {3} For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:

Heb 6:9

6:9 {4} But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.

Heb 6:10

6:10 {5} For God [is] not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

Heb 6:12

6:12 {6} That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Heb 6:13

6:13 {7} For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

Heb 6:14

6:14 Saying, Surely {e} blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

Heb 6:17

6:17 Wherein God, willing more {f} abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed [it] by an oath:

Heb 6:19

6:19 {8} Which [hope] we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;

Heb 6:20

6:20 {9} Whither the forerunner is for us entered, [even] Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Heb 7:1

7:1 For this {1} Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and {a} blessed him;

Heb 7:3

7:3 {2} Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

Heb 7:4

7:4 {3} Now consider how great this man [was], unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.

Heb 7:5

7:5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they {b} come out of the loins of Abraham:

Heb 7:7

7:7 And {c} without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.

Heb 7:9

7:9 {4} And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.

Heb 7:11

7:11 {5} If therefore {d} perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need [was there] that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

Heb 7:12

7:12 {6} For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the {e} law.

Heb 7:13

7:13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man {f} gave attendance at the altar.

Heb 7:15

7:15 {7} And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

Heb 7:16

7:16 {8} Who is made, not after the {g} law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

Heb 7:18

7:18 {9} For there is verily a disannulling of the {h} commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.

Heb 7:20

7:20 {10} And inasmuch as not without an oath [he was made priest]:

Heb 7:23

7:23 {11} And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:

Heb 7:24

7:24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an {i} unchangeable priesthood.

Heb 7:25

7:25 Wherefore he is {k} able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Heb 7:26

7:26 {12} For such an high priest became us, [who is] holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

Heb 7:27

7:27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: {13} for {l} this he did {m} once, when he offered up himself.

Heb 7:28

7:28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the {n} word of the oath, {14} which {o} was since the law, [maketh] the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Heb 8:1

8:1 Now {1} of the things which we have spoken [this is] the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

Heb 8:2

8:2 {2} A minister of the {a} sanctuary, {3} and of the {b} true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

Heb 8:3

8:3 {4} For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore [it is] of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

Heb 8:4

8:4 {5} For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:

Heb 8:6

8:6 {6} But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Heb 8:7

8:7 {7} For if that first [covenant] had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

Heb 8:8

8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the {c} house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Heb 8:13

8:13 {8} In that he saith, A new [covenant], he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old [is] ready to vanish away.

Heb 9:1

9:1 Then verily {1} the first [covenant] had also ordinances of divine service, and a {a} worldly sanctuary.

Heb 9:3

9:3 And after {b} the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the {c} Holiest of all;

Heb 9:5

9:5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the {d} mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

Heb 9:6

9:6 {2} Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service [of God].

Heb 9:7

9:7 But into the second [went] the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and [for] the {e} errors of the people:

Heb 9:8

9:8 {3} The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:

Heb 9:9

9:9 {4} Which [was] a figure {f} for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;

Heb 9:10

9:10 {5} [Which stood] only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, {g} imposed [on them] until the time of reformation.

Heb 9:11

9:11 {6} But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, {7} by a {h} greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Heb 9:12

9:12 {8} Neither by the blood of {i} goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption [for us].

Heb 9:13

9:13 {9} For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the {k} purifying of the flesh:

Heb 9:14

9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from {l} dead works to serve the living God?

Heb 9:15

9:15 {10} And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions [that were] under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

Heb 9:16

9:16 {11} For where a testament [is], there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

Heb 9:18

9:18 {12} Whereupon neither the first [testament] was dedicated without blood.

Heb 9:19

9:19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people {m} according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and {n} sprinkled both the book, and all the people,

Heb 9:23

9:23 [It was] therefore necessary that the {o} patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

Heb 9:24

9:24 {13} For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, [which are] the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

Heb 9:25

9:25 {14} Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;

Heb 9:26

9:26 {15} For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the {p} end of the world hath he appeared to put away {q} sin by the sacrifice of himself.

Heb 9:27

9:27 And as it is appointed unto men {r} once to die, but after this the judgment:

Heb 9:28

9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of {s} many; {16} and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Heb 10:1

10:1 For {1} the law having a shadow of good things to {a} come, [and] not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

Heb 10:5

10:5 {2} Wherefore when he {b} cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a {c} body hast thou prepared me:

Heb 10:9

10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the {d} first, that he may establish the second.

Heb 10:11

10:11 {3} And every priest standeth {e} daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

Heb 10:13

10:13 {4} From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

Heb 10:15

10:15 {5} [Whereof] the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

Heb 10:17

10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember {f} no more.

Heb 10:18

10:18 Now where remission of these [is, there is] no more offering for {g} sin.

Heb 10:19

10:19 {6} Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

Heb 10:20

10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his {h} flesh;

Heb 10:22

10:22 {7} Let us draw near with a {i} true heart in full assurance of faith, having our {k} hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with {l} pure water.

Heb 10:25

10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: {8} and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Heb 10:26

10:26 For if we sin {m} wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Heb 10:27

10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the {n} adversaries.

Heb 10:28

10:28 {9} He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

Heb 10:30

10:30 {10} For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall {o} judge his people.

Heb 10:32

10:32 {11} But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

Heb 10:33

10:33 Partly, whilst ye were made a {p} gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became {q} companions of them that were so used.

Heb 10:34

10:34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring {r} substance.

Heb 10:37

10:37 For yet a {s} little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

Heb 10:38

10:38 {12} Now the just shall live by faith: but if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Heb 11:1

11:1 Now {1} faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Heb 11:2

11:2 {2} For by it the {a} elders obtained a good report.

Heb 11:3

11:3 {3} Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are {b} seen were not made of things which do appear.

Heb 11:4

11:4 {4} By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

Heb 11:5

11:5 {5} By faith Enoch was translated that he should not {c} see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Heb 11:6

11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a {d} rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Heb 11:7

11:7 {6} By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Heb 11:8

11:8 {7} By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

Heb 11:10

11:10 For he looked for a city which hath {e} foundations, whose builder and maker [is] God.

Heb 11:12

11:12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as {f} dead, [so many] as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

Heb 11:13

11:13 These all died in {g} faith, not having received the {h} promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of [them], and {i} embraced [them], and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

Heb 11:17

11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was {k} tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the {l} promises offered up his only begotten [son],

Heb 11:19

11:19 Accounting that God [was] able to raise [him] up, even from the dead; from {m} whence also he received him in {n} a figure.

Heb 11:20

11:20 {8} By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

Heb 11:21

11:21 {9} By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, [leaning] upon the top of his staff.

Heb 11:22

11:22 {10} By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

Heb 11:23

11:23 {11} By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw [he was] a proper child; and they were not {o} afraid of the king's commandment.

Heb 11:25

11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the {p} pleasures of sin for a season;

Heb 11:29

11:29 {12} By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry [land]: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

Heb 11:30

11:30 {13} By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

Heb 11:31

11:31 {14} By faith the {q} harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the {r} spies with peace.

Heb 11:32
