26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have
received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,
27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment
and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died
without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 How much more severely do you think a man deserves
to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot,
who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant
that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge;
I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”
31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
