(每日读经10/23) 希伯来书 - Hebrews 5.11–6.12
Concerning whom we have much to say that is also difficult to interpret since you have become dull of hearing.
For when because of the time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you what the rudiments of the beginning of the oracles of God are and have become those who have need of milk and not of solid food.
For everyone who partakes of milk is inexperienced in the word of righteousness, for he is an infant;
But solid food is for the full-grown, who because of practice have their faculties exercised for discriminating between both good and evil.
Therefore leaving the word of the beginning of Christ, let us be brought on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith in God,
Of the teaching of baptisms and of the laying on of hands, of the resurrection of the dead and of eternal judgment.
And this we will do if God permits.
For it is impossible for those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit，
And have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
And yet have fallen away, to renew themselves again unto repentance, crucifying again for themselves the Son of God and putting Him to open shame.
For the earth, which drinks the rain which often comes upon it and produces vegetation suitable to those for whose sake also it is cultivated, partakes of blessing from God.
But if it brings forth thorns and thistles, it is disapproved and near a curse, whose end is to be burned.
But we are persuaded of better things concerning you, beloved, and things which belong to salvation, though we speak thus.
For God is not unrighteous, so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name in having ministered to the saints and in ministering still.
But we desire earnestly that each of you show the same diligence unto the full assurance of our hope until the end,
That you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and long-suffering are inheriting the promises.
