  • Hebrews 21-4 (VOICE)
  • 2 That is why we ought to pay even closer
    attention to the voice that has been speaking so
    that we will never drift away from it. 2 For if
    the words of instruction and inspiration brought
    by heavens messengers were valid, and if we live
    in a universe where sin and disobedience receive
    their just rewards, 3 then how will we escape
    destruction if we ignore this great salvation? We
    heard it first from our Lord Jesus, then from
    those who passed on His teaching. 4 God also
    testifies to this truth by signs and wonders and
    miracles and the gifts of the Holy Spirit
    lighting on those He chooses.
