RSTNE 8th Edition Online – Hebrews-Ivrim


To The Believing Remnant Of Yisrael

1 Ahloha, who at various times and in different derachot spoke in times past to the ahvot of Yisrael by the neviim,

2 Has in these yamim acharonim spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the olamim;

3 Who being the brightness of His tifereth and the express image of His Person and upholding all things by The Word of His Power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down as the Right Hand of the Majesty on High;

4 Being made so much better than the heavenly malachim, as He has inherited a more excellent Name than them.

5 For to which of the heavenly malachim said He at any time, You are My Son, this yom have I brought You forth? And again, I will be to Him an Abba and He shall be to Me a Son?

6 And again, when He brings in the first brought-forth into the olam, He says: And let all the heavenly malachim of Ahloha worship Him.

7 And of the heavenly malachim He says, Who makes His heavenly malachim ruachim and His avadim a flame of fire.

8 But to The Son He says, Your kesay, O Ahloha, is le-olam-va-ed: a scepter of tzedakah is the scepter of Your malchut.

9 You have loved tzedakah and hated iniquity; therefore Ahloha, even Your Ahloha, has anointed You with the oil of gilah above Your fellows.

10 And, You, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth; and the shamayim are the works of Your hands:

11 They shall perish; but You remain; and they all shall grow old as does a garment;

12 And like a mantle You shall fold them up and they shall be changed: but You are the same and Your years shall not fail.

13 But to which of the heavenly malachim said He at any time, Sit on My right hand, until I make Your enemies Your footstool?

14 Are they not all serving ruachim, sent forth to serve those who shall be heirs of salvation?

2 Therefore we have to give the more earnest attention to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

2 For if The Word spoken by heavenly malachim was firm and every transgression and act of disobedience received a correct reward;

3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at first began to be spoken by The Master Himself and was confirmed to us by them that heard Him;

4 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders and with different nisim and gifts of The Ruach Hakodesh, according to His own will!

5 For it is not to the heavenly malachim that He has subjected the olam haba, of which we speak.

6 But The Katuv testifies, saying, What is man, that You are mindful of him? Or, the ben adam, that You visited him?

7 You made him a little lower than the heavenly malachim; You crowned him with tifereth and kavod and did set him over the works of Your hands:

8 You have 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. But now we see not yet all things put under Him.

9 But we see 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, who was made a little lower than the heavenly malachim for the suffering of death, crowned with tifereth and kavod; because He tasted death for every man, apart from Abba Ahloha of course.

10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to tifereth, to make the Sar of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

11 For both He that sets-apart and those who are being set apart are all echad: for which reason He is not ashamed to call them Yisraelite brothers,

12 Saying, I will declare Your Name to My Yisraelite brothers, in the midst of the kehilla will I sing tehilla to You.

13 And again, I will put My trust in Him. And again, Behold I and the children that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has given Me.

14 Since the children share in flesh and dahm, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, s.a.tan;

15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to avdooth.

16 For truly He took not on Himself the nature of heavenly malachim; but He took on Himself the offspring-zera of Avraham.

17 So in every way it behooved Him to be made like His Yisraelite brothers, so that He might be full of rachamim as a faithful Kohen HaGadol in things pertaining to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to make keporah for the sins of the people.

18 For in that He Himself has suffered being tried, He is able to help them that are tried.

3 Therefore, kadosh Yisraelite brothers, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider The Sholiach and The Kohen HaGadol of our confession, The Moshiach 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏;

2 Who was faithful to Him that appointed Him, as also Moshe was faithful in all his bayit.

3 For this Man was counted worthy of more tifereth than Moshe, seeing that He who has built the bayit has more kavod than the bayit.

4 For every bayit is built by some man; but He that built all things is Ahloha.

5 And Moshe truly was faithful in all his bayit, as an eved, for a testimony of those things that were to be spoken later;

6 But The Moshiach as a Son over His own bayit; whose bayit we are, if we hold fast the confidence and the gilah of our tikvah firm to the end.

7 Therefore as The Ruach Hakodesh says, Today if you will hear His voice,

8 Harden not your levavot, as in the rebellion, in the yom of trials in the wilderness:

9 When your ahvot tried Me, proved Me and saw My works forty years.

10 Therefore I was grieved with that generation and said, They do always go wayward in their levavot; and they have not known My halachot.

11 So I swore in My wrath, They shall not enter into My rest.

12 Shema, Yisraelite brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil lev of unbelief, in departing from the living Ahloha.

13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called today; lest any of you become hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we are made partakers of The Moshiach, if we hold onto the beginning of our confidence firm to the end;

15 While it is said, today if you will hear His voice, harden not your levavot, as in the rebellion.

16 For some, when they had heard, did rebel: was it not those that came out of Mitzrayim with Moshe? Although not all of them.

17 But with whom was He grieved for forty years? Was it not with them that had sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom did He swear that they should not enter into His rest, but to them that believed not?

19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

4 Let us therefore fear, while the promise of entering into His rest remains, lest any of you should seem to come short of it.

2 For to us was The Besorah proclaimed, as well as to them: but The Word proclaimed did not profit them, since it was not mixed with emunah in them that heard it.

3 For we who have believed do enter into the rest, as He said, As I have sworn in My wrath, they shall not enter into My rest: for behold the works were finished from the foundation of the olam.

4 For He spoke in a certain place of The Shabbath in this manner: And Ahloha did rest on the seventh yom from all His works.

5 And in this place again, They shall not enter into My rest.

6 Seeing therefore it stands that some will surely enter into it and they to whom it was first proclaimed entered not because of unbelief:

7 Again, after so long a time; He appointed another yom as it is written above, for Dawid said, Today if you will hear His voice, harden not your levavot.

8 For if 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 son of Nun had given them rest, then would He not afterward have spoken of another yom.

9 There remains therefore a Shabbat-keeping duty to all the people of Ahloha.

10 For the one that is entered into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 did from His.

11 Let us labor therefore to enter into that future Shabbat, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

12 For The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing between the nephesh and the ruach man and between the joints and marrow and bone and is a discerner of the emet thoughts and intents of the lev.

13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and open before the eyes of Him to whom we have to answer.

14 Seeing then that we have a great Kohen HaGadol, that is passed into the shamayim, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 The Son of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, let us hold fast our confession.

15 For we have not a Kohen HaGadol who cannot be touched with the feeling of our weaknesses; but He was in all points tried like we are, yet He was without sin.

16 Let us therefore come boldly to the kesay of chen, that we may obtain rachamim and find chen to help in our time of need.

5 For every Kohen HaGadol taken from among men is appointed for men in things pertaining to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:

2 He is the one who can humble himself and have rachamim on the ignorant who go astray; for that he himself also is surrounded with weaknesses.

3 And because of these he is obliged, to sacrifice for the people and also for himself, on account of his own sins.

4 And no man takes this kavod to himself, but he that is called of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, as was Aharon.

5 So also The Moshiach esteemed not Himself to be made a Kohen HaGadol; but He that said to Him, You are My Son, today have I brought You forth.

6 As He says also in another place, You are a Kohen le-olam-va-ed, based on The Dabar-The Word Malki-Tzedek.

7 Who in the yamim of His flesh, when He had offered up tefillot and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him that was able to save Him from death and was heard;

8 Though He was The Son, yet He learned obedience by the things that He suffered;

9 And He grew to be perfect and He became The Author of eternal salvation to all them that obey Him;

10 Called of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, a Kohen HaGadol based on The Dabar-The Word Malki-Tzedek.

11 About whom we have many things to say, but some are hard to explain, seeing you are dull of hearing.

12 For when by this time you ought to be morim, you have the need that someone teach you again the first principles of the primary writings of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; and have become those that need milk and not strong meat.

13 For everyone that uses milk is unskilled in The Word of Tzedakah: for he is a baby.

14 But strong meat belongs to them that are mature, even those who by reason of using The Word, have their senses exercised to discern both tov and evil.

6 Therefore leaving the elementary principles of the teaching of The Moshiach, let us go on to perfection; not laying again the foundation of teshuvah from past evil works and of emunah towards 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,

2 Of the teachings of mikvot and of laying on of hands and of our resurrection from the dead and of eternal mishpat.

3 And this will we do, if The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 permits.

4 For it is impossible for those who were once immersed in mikvah, and have tasted of the heavenly gift and were made partakers of The Ruach Hakodesh,

5 And have tasted the tov Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the powers of the olam haba,

6 And should they fall away, to renew them again to teshuvah; seeing they impale by themselves The Son of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 again and put Him to an open shame.

7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes upon it and brings forth plants fit for them by whom it is tilled, receives brachot from Ahloha:

8 But that which bears thorns and thistles is rejected and is near to cursing; whose end is to be burned.

9 But, beloved, we expect better things from you and things that accompany salvation; that’s why we speak like this.

10 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of ahava, which you have showed toward His Name, in that you have served the Yisraelite kidushim and still do serve.

11 And we desire that every one of you show the same eagerness to the full assurance of your tikvah to the end:

12 That you be not lazy in The Malchut, but followers of them who through emunah and patience will inherit the promises.

13 For when 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 made a promise to Avraham because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself,

14 Saying, Surely in brachot I will bless you and multiplying I will multiply you.

15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

16 For men truly swear by the greater than themselves: and in every dispute among them, the emet settlement is by the oath.

17 In like manner 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, willing more abundantly to show to the heirs of promise that His promise was unchangeable, sealed it by an oath:

18 That by two immutable things, the promise and the tikvah, in which it was impossible for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to lie, we might have a strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the tikvah set before us:

19 Which tikvah we have as an anchor of our being, both sure and firm and that tikvah enters within the veil;

20 There 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 has previously entered in for our sakes, made The Kohen HaGadol le-olam-va-ed , based on The Dabar-The Word Malki-Tzedek.

7 For this Malki-Tzedek, melech of Wholeness, kohen of El-Elyon, who met Avraham returning from the slaughter of the melechim and blessed him;

2 To whom also Avraham gave a ma’aser; first being by interpretation Melech of Tzedakah and after that also Melech of Healing and Wholeness, that is, Melech of Shalom;

3 Without abba, without emma, without records in any list or genealogy, without a start of yamim, nor any end of chayim; but this One was like The Son of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; who is the One that abides in His kohanut-priesthood in ongoing victory.

4 Now consider how great this One was, to whom even our abba Avraham gave the ma’aser and firstfruits of the best.

5 And truly they that are of the sons of Lewi, who receive the office of the kohanim, have a mitzvah to take the ma’aser from the people according to the Torah, that is, from their Yisraelite brothers, even though they come out of the loins of Avraham:

6 But the One not recorded in their family’s genealogy, received the ma’aser from Avraham and blessed him that had the promises.

7 And The Dabar is correct; the lesser one is blessed by the Greater One.

8 And here mortal men receive the ma’aser; but there The One received them, of whom The Katuv is a witness that He lives continually.

9 And one might say, that through Avraham even Lewi, who received the ma’aser, gave ma’aser.

10 For he was yet in the loins of his abba Avraham, when Malki-Tzedek met him.

11 If therefore perfection were by the Lewitical kohanut – for under it the people received the Torah – what further need was there that another Kohen should arise, based upon My Dabar-My Word Malki-Tzedek and not be called based on My Words to Aharon?

12 For the kohanut being transferred, there is made of necessity an adjustment also in the Torah.

13 For He of whom these things are spoken of pertains to another tribe, of which no man ever served at the altar.

14 For it is evident that our Master sprang out of Yahudah; of which tribe Moshe said nothing concerning the kohanut.

15 And it is yet clearer: that after the likeness and image of Malki-Tzedek there arises another Kohen,

16 Who is not appointed by the Torah of a carnal mitzvah given to flesh and dahm, but by The Power of an endless chayim.

17 For He testifies, You are a Kohen le-olam-va-ed, based on The Dabar-The Word Malki-Tzedek.

18 For there is truly a setting-aside of the former mitzvah because of its weakness and unprofitableness.

19 For the Torah healed nothing, but the bringing in of a better tikvah did; through which we draw near to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

20 And He confirmed it to us by an oath:

21 For those kohanim were made without any oath; but this One with an oath, by Him that said to Him, The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has sworn and will not relent, You are a Kohen le-olam-va-ed; based on The Dabar-The Word Malki-Tzedek:

22 By that oath 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 was made a guarantor of a better brit.

23 And they truly were many kohanim because they were not allowed to continue in the land by reason of their death:

24 But this One, le-olam-va-ed, has a continuous kohanut, that will not depart from us.

25 Therefore He is able also to save them fully, that come to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 through Him, seeing He lives le-olam-va-ed to make intercession for them.

26 For such a Kohen HaGadol is fully fit for us, who is kadosh, harmless, undefiled, pure, separate from sinners and exalted higher than the shamayim;

27 Who need not daily, as those Kohanim Gedolim, to offer up sacrifices, first for his own sins and then for the people’s: for this He did once, when He offered up Himself.

28 For the Torah makes men Kohanim Gedolim, who have human weakness; but The Dabar-Word of the oath, which was after the Torah, appointed The Son, The Perfect One, le-olam-va-ed.

8 Now of the things that we have spoken this is the summary: We have such a Kohen HaGadol, who is set as the Right Hand of the kesay of the Majesty in the shamayim;

2 An attendant of the Kadosh-Place and of the emet Tent of Meeting, which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 pitched and not man.

3 For every Kohen HaGadol is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices: So it was also necessary that this Man have something to offer.

4 For if He were on earth, He would not be a kohen, seeing that there are kohanim that offer gifts according to the Torah:

5 Who serve as the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moshe was admonished by Ahloha when he was about to make the Tent of Meeting: for, See, He said, that you make all things according to the pattern showed to you on the har.

6 But now 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 Ha Moshiach has obtained a greater service, by which He also is the Mediator of a more advantageous brit, which was given as Torah based upon more advantageous promises.

7 For if that first brit people had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

8 For finding fault with them, He says, Behold, the yamim come, says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, when I will make a Brit Chadasha with Beit Yisrael and with Beit Yahudah:

9 Not according to the brit that I made with their ahvot in the yom when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Mitzrayim; because they continued not in My brit and I regarded them not, says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

10 For this is the brit that I will make with Beit Yisrael after those yamim, says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; I will put My Torah into their mind and write it on their levavot: and I will be their Ahloha and they shall be My People-Ami:

11 And they shall not teach every man his fellow Yisraelite citizen, and every man his Yisraelite brother, saying, Know The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 for kol Yisrael shall know Me, from the least to the greatest of them.

12 For I will forgive their unrighteousness and their sins and their Torah-less-ness will I remember no more.

13 In that He says, a new kohanut, He has made the first old. Now that which decays and becomes old is near disappearing.

9 Then truly the first kohanut also had regulations of worship and an earthly Kadosh-Place.

2 For there was a Tent of Meeting made; the first area, where the menorah and the shulchan and the Lechem of the Panayim was; which is called the Makom Kadosh.

3 And after the second veil, the area of the Tent of Meeting which is called the Kadosh HaKedoshim;

4 Which had the golden censer, and the Ark of the Testimony covered on all sides with gold, in which was the golden pot that had manna and Aharon’s rod that budded and the tablets of the testimony;

5 And over it the cheruvim of tifereth shadowing the rachamim seat; of which we won’t now speak in detail.

6 Now when these things were prepared, the kohanim went always into the Makom Kadosh of the Tent of Meeting, performing the services.

7 But into the Kadosh HaKedoshim went the Kohen HaGadol alone once every year, with dahm, which he offered for himself and for the sins of the people:

8 The Ruach Hakodesh therefore signifying, that the derech into the Makom Kadosh was not yet made manifest for believers, while the first Tent of Meeting was still standing:

9 Which was a parable for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make the one that did the service perfect, regarding his conscience;

10 Which stood only in food offerings and drink offerings and different washings and flesh-related regulations, imposed on the kohanim until the time of reformation and restoration.

11 But Moshiach has now become a Kohen HaGadol of tov things to come, by a greater and more perfect Tent of Meeting, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation;

12 Neither by the dahm of goats and calves, but by His own dahm He entered in once into the Kadosh HaKedoshim, having obtained eternal geulah for us.

13 For if the dahm of bulls and of goats and the ashes of a red heifer sprinkling the defiled, sets-apart the flesh:

14 How much more shall the dahm of Moshiach, who through the eternal Ruach offered Himself without blemish to Ahloha, purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living Ahloha?

15 And for this cause He is the Mediator of the Brit Chadasha, by means of His death, for the geulah of the sins that were done in the first brit, so that those who are called, might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

16 For where a will is presented it shows the death of its maker.

17 For a will is in force only after men are dead: otherwise it is useless while its maker lives.

18 For this reason, not even the first will was dedicated without dahm.

19 For when Moshe had spoken every precept to all the people according to the Torah, he took the dahm of calves, with mayim and scarlet wool and hyssop and sprinkled both the scroll and all the people,

20 Saying, This is the dahm of the will which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has commanded for you.

21 In like manner later, he sprinkled with dahm both the Tent of Meeting and all the vessels of the service.

22 And almost all things are by the Torah purged with dahm; and without the shedding of dahm there is no forgiveness.

23 It was therefore necessary that the images of the heavenly things should be purified with these; although the heavenly objects serve to host a better sacrifice than these.

24 For The Moshiach is not entered into the Kadosh-Place made with hands, which is an image of the emet one; but into the shamayim itself, now to appear in the presence of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 for us:

25 For He does not need to offer Himself often, as the Kohen HaGadol who enters into the Kadosh HaKedoshim every year with dahm that is not His own;

26 For then He would have to suffer often from the foundation of the olam: but now once at the end of the olam hazeh, He has appeared to abolish sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

27 And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the mishpat:

28 So Moshiach was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to those that look for Him shall He appear the second time for our deliverance, this time not carrying our sins.

10 For the Torah having a shadow of tov things to come and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually, make those who draw near perfect.

2 Otherwise would they not have ceased to be offered? Because then the worshippers once cleansed, should have had no more awareness of their sins.

3 But in those sacrifices there is a yearly reminder of sins.

4 For it is impossible that the dahm of bulls and goats can take away sins.

5 Therefore when He comes into the olam hazeh, He says, Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a gooff You have prepared for Me:

6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have had no pleasure.

7 Then said I, Behold, I come: in the volume of the scroll and chapter, it is written of Me, to do Your will, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

8 In the above quote when He said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin You did not desire, neither do You have pleasure in them; which are offered according to the Torah;

9 Then He said, Behold, I come to do Your will, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.He takes away the first sacrificial system, that He may establish the second.

10 By that desire we are now kadosh through the offering of the gooff of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 Ha Moshiach once for all.

11 And every kohen stands daily serving and offering the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins le-olam-va-ed, sat down as the right Hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄;

13 Waiting from then on until all His enemies are made His footstool.

14 For by one offering He has perfected le-olam-va-ed them that are being set apart.

15 And The Ruach Hakodesh also is a witness for us: for after that He had said before,

16 This is the brit that I will make with them after those yamim, says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, I will put My Torot into their levavot and in their minds will I write them;

17 And their sins and Torah-less-ness will I remember no more.

18 Now where forgiveness of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

19 Having therefore, Yisraelite brothers, boldness to enter into the Makom Kadosh by the dahm of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏,

20 By a new and living derech, which He has set apart for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh;

21 And having a Kohen HaGadol over the Beit HaMikdash of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄;

22 Let us draw near with a emet lev in full assurance of emunah, having our levavot sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure mayim.

23 Let us hold fast the confession of our emunah without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;)

24 And let us care for one another to stir up ahava and tov mitzvoth:

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the Yom approaching.

26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the da’at of the emet, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,

27 But a certain fearful anticipation of mishpat and fire, which shall devour His enemies.

28 He that despised Moshe’s Torah died without rachamim under two, or three witnesses:

29 Of how much worse punishment, do you think, he shall deserve, who has trampled under foot The Son of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and has counted the dahm of the brit, by which he was made kadosh as a common thing and has insulted The Ruach of chen?

30 For we know Him that has said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. And again, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall judge His people.

31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living Ahloha.

32 But remember the former yamim, in which, after you were immersed in mikvah, you endured great fights and sufferings;

33 On one hand you were exposed to reproaches and pressures; and on the other hand you became sharers with those who were so treated.

34 And you had pity on those who were prisoners and you allowed the seizure of your property cheerfully, for you yourselves know that you have a better and more enduring possession in the shamayim.

35 Do not lose your confidence, which has great reward.

36 For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, you will receive the promise.

37 In yet a little while, He that shall come will come and will not tarry.

38 But the just shall live by My emunah: but if anyone draws back, My being shall have no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the being.

11 Now emunah is the substance of things now hoped for, as it was the substance of things which have already come to pass, as it is the evidence of things not yet seen.

2 For by it zichnai –Yisrael obtained a tov report.

3 Through emunah we understand that the olamim were framed by The Word of Ahloha, so that things that are seen were made by the invisible.

4 By emunah Hevel offered to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 a more excellent sacrifice than Qayin, by which he obtained witness that he was tzadik, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaks.

5 By emunah Chanok was translated that he should not see death; and was not found because 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony; that he pleased 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

6 But without emunah it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.

7 By emunah Noach, being warned by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, made an ark to save his bayit; by it he condemned the olam and became heir of the tzedakah that is by emunah.

8 By emunah Avraham, when he was called to go out into a place that he would later receive as an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.

9 By emunah he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tents with Yitzchak and Yaakov, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10 For he looked for a city that has foundations, whose Builder and Maker is 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

11 Through emunah also Sarah herself received strength to conceive offspring and was delivered of a child when she was past age because she deemed Him faithful who had promised.

12 Therefore sprang forth one, from him almost dead; and then later others, as many as the cochavim of the sky in multitude and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

13 These all died in emunah, not having received the heavenly promised land, but having seen it far off and were persuaded of it and embraced it and confessed that they were gerim and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from where they came out, they might have had the opportunity to return.

16 But now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one: therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is not ashamed to be called their Ahloha: for He has prepared for them a city.

17 By emunah Avraham, when he was tried, offered up Yitzchak: and he that had received the promises offered up his only brought-forth son,

18 Of whom it was said, That in Yitzchak shall your zera be called:

19 Accounting that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from where also he received him in a figure.

20 By emunah Yitzchak blessed Yaakov and Esav concerning things to come.

21 By emunah Yaakov, when he was dying, blessed both the sons of Yoseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

22 By emunah Yoseph, when he died, made mention of the exodus of B’nai Yisrael; and gave them a commandment concerning his bones.

23 By emunah Moshe, when he was born, was hidden three chodashem by his parents because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the melech’s commandment.

24 By emunah Moshe, when he was grown, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short while;

26 Esteeming the reproach of The Moshiach as greater riches than the treasures in Mitzrayim: for he looked forward to receive the reward.

27 By emunah he forsook Mitzrayim, not fearing the wrath of the melech: for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible.

28 Through emunah he kept the Pesach and the sprinkling of dahm, lest He that destroyed the bachorim should touch them.

29 By emunah they passed through the Yam Suf on dry land: which the Mitzrites attempting to do were drowned.

30 By emunah the walls of Yericho fell down, after they were circled around for seven yamim.

31 By emunah the harlot Rachav did not perish with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with shalom.

32 And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gidyon and of Baraq and of Shimshon and of Yiftach; of Dawid also and Shmuel and of the neviim:

33 Who through emunah subdued malchutim, worked tzedakah, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in fight, routed the armies of the foreigners.

35 Women received their dead raised to chayim again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

36 And others had trials of cruel mockings and scourgings, yes and also chains and imprisonment:

37 They were stoned, they were sawn apart, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

38 (Of whom this olam was not worthy; they wandered in deserts and in mountains and in dens and caves of the earth).

39 And these all, having obtained a tov report through emunah, received not the promise:

40 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 having provided for us too; so that they without us should not be made perfect.

12 Therefore seeing that we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of Yisraelite witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that does so easily beset us and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

2 Looking to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 the Author and Finisher of our emunah; who for the simcha that was set before Him endured the execution eytz, despising the shame and has sat down as the right hand of the kesay of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

3 For consider Him that suffered such opposition from those sinners against Himself, from those who opposed their own beings, so that you do not become discouraged, nor your being become remiss.

4 Ye have not yet resisted to dahm, striving against sin.

5 And you have forgotten the exhortation that speaks to you as to children, My son, despise not the chastening of The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, nor grow weak when you are rebuked by Him:

6 For whom The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 loves He chastens and scourges every son whom He receives.

7 If you endure discipline, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 deals with you as with sons; for what son does The Abba not discipline?

8 But if you are without discipline, by which we all are trained, then are you gerim and not sons.

9 Furthermore we have had ahvot of our flesh who corrected us and we gave them respect: shall we not much rather be subject to The Abba of Ruachim and live?

10 For they truly for a few yamim disciplined us after their own binah; but He for our profit, that we might be partakers of His kadosh nature.

11 Now no discipline for the present seems to be fun, but sorrowful: nevertheless afterwards, it yields fruits of shalom to those who are trained by that discipline.

12 Therefore lift up the hands that hang down and the feeble knees;

13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the derech; but let it rather be healed.

14 Follow shalom with all men and set apartness-kedushah, without which no man shall see 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄:

15 Taking heed lest any man fall short of the chen of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; lest any root of bitterness spring up to harm you and by which many be defiled;

16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esav, who for one morsel of meat sold his bechora.

17 For you know how that afterwards, when he would have inherited the bracha, he was rejected: for he had no chance of recovering it, though he sought it carefully with tears.

18 For you have not come to the har that might be touched and that burned with fire, nor to blackness and darkness and tempest,

19 And the sound of a shofar and the voice of words; which voice they that heard begged that The Word should not be spoken to them anymore:

20 For they could not endure what was commanded and if so much as a beast touched the har, it was to be stoned, or thrust through with a spear:

21 And so terrible was the sight that Moshe said, I exceedingly fear and quake:

22 But you have come to Har Tzion and to the city of the living Ahloha, the heavenly Yahrushalayim and to an innumerable multitude of heavenly malachim,

23 To the gathering and kehilla of the bachorim, that is enrolled in the shamayim and to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 the Shophet of all and to the ruachim of tzadikim made perfect,

24 And to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 the Mediator of the Brit Chadasha and to the dahm of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Hevel.

25 See that you refuse Him not that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, how much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from Him that speaks from the shamayim:

26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also the shamayim.

27 And this Word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, the things that have been made, so that those things that cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore receiving a malchut that cannot be moved, let us have chen, by which we may serve 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 acceptably with reverence and fear:

29 For our Ahloha is a consuming fire.

13 Let Yisraelite brotherly ahava continue.

2 Be not forgetful to entertain gerim: for in that manner some have entertained heavenly malachim unaware.

3 Remember them that are in prison, as in prison with them; and them who suffer adversity, for you also are human.

4 Marriage is honorable in all situations and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will judge.

5 Let your behavior be without greed; and be content with such things as you have: for The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Himself has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.

6 So that we may boldly say, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is my Helper and I will not fear what man shall do to me.

7 Remember those who lead you, who have spoken to you The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: whose outcome follow, imitate their mitzvoth and emunah.

8 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 Ha Moshiach the same yesterday and today and le-olam-va-ed.

9 Be not carried about with different and strange doctrines. For it is a tov thing that the lev is established with chen; not with foods, which has not profited those that have been occupied with that.

10 We have an altar, from which they have no right to eat, who serve the earthly Tent of Meeting.

11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose dahm is brought into the Kadosh-Place by the Kohen HaGadol for sin, are burned outside the camp.

12 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 also, that He might set apart the people of Yisrael with His own dahm, suffered outside the gate.

13 Let us go forth therefore to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach.

14 For we have no lasting city here, but we seek the one to come.

15 By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of tehilla to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving hodu to His Name.

16 But to do tov and to share don’t forget: for with such sacrifices 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is well pleased.

17 Shema to your spiritual leaders and obey them: for they watch for your beings, as those that must give account to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that they may do it with simcha and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

18 Make tefillot for us: for we trust we have a tov conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.

19 But I ask you exceedingly to do this, that I may be restored to you sooner.

20 Now the Ahloha of shalom, that brought again from the dead our Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, that Great Roei of the sheep, through the dahm of the everlasting brit,

21 Make you perfect in every tov mitzvah to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 Ha Moshiach; to whom be tifereth le-olam-va-ed. Ahmein.

22 And I beg you, Yisraelite brothers, allow for this Word of exhortation: for I have written a letter to you with just a few words.

23 Know that our brother Timtheous has been set free; if he comes shortly, I will see you with him.

24 Salute all your spiritual leaders and all the Yisraelite kidushim. The Yisraelites of Italy salute you.

25 Chen be with you all. Ahmein.
