“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
King James Version (KJV)
6:12 Inherited the promises - The promised rest; paradise.
Heb 6:12 But followers of them. Of the glorious heroes of the faith, like Abraham and Moses, and the martyrs, like Stephen and James. Faith and patience. These qualities, essential to steadfastness, must be found in those who "inherit the promises".
