Hebrews 6:4-8

Context
6:4 For it is impossible in the case of those who have once been enlightened, tasted the heavenly gift, become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 6:5 tasted the good word of God and the miracles of the coming age, 6:6 and then have committed apostasy, 1  to renew them again to repentance, since 2  they are crucifying the Son of God for themselves all over again 3  and holding him up to contempt. 6:7 For the ground that has soaked up the rain that frequently falls on 4  it and yields useful vegetation for those who tend it receives a blessing from God. 6:8 But if it produces thorns and thistles, it is useless and about to be cursed; 5  its fate is to be burned.

1 tn Or “have fallen away.”

2 tn Or “while”; Grk “crucifying…and holding.” The Greek participles here (“crucifying…and holding”) can be understood as either causal (“since”) or temporal (“while”).

3 tn Grk “recrucifying the son of God for themselves.”

4 tn Grk “comes upon.”

5 tn Grk “near to a curse.”
