Hebrews 9:16

9:16 For where there is a will, the death of the one who made it must be proven. 1 

Hebrews 9:28

9:28 so also, after Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many, 2  to those who eagerly await him he will appear a second time, not to bear sin 3  but to bring salvation. 4 

1 tn Grk “there is a necessity for the death of the one who made it to be proven.”

2 sn An allusion to Isa 53:12.

3 tn Grk “without sin,” but in context this does not refer to Christ’s sinlessness (as in Heb 4:15) but to the fact that sin is already dealt with by his first coming.

4 tn Grk “for salvation.” This may be construed with the verb “await” (those who wait for him to bring them salvation), but the connection with “appear” (as in the translation) is more likely.
