Daily Bible Verse - 11/06/2007 - Hebrews 10:36

NIV You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
KJV For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
NASB For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
Hebrews 10:36
What they needed was endurance, the determination to remain under the persecutions rather than escape them by denying Christ. Then after having done the will of God, they would receive the promised reward.

Did you know?
The recipients of this book
(Hebrews) have already endured the sufferings of persecution. The writer implied they would face more such adversity. These verses provide insight into the nature of most persecutions prior to the executions of Nero in a.d. 64-65. They involved mob action, public ridicule, and plundering of property, all of which the authorities ignored.
