“But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.”
King James Version (KJV)
6:9 But, beloved - in this one place he calls them so. he never uses this appellation, but in exhorting. We are persuaded of you things that accompany salvation - We are persuaded you are now saved from your sins; and that ye have that faith, love, and holiness, which lead to final salvation. Though we thus speak - To warn you, lest you should fall from your present steadfastness.
Heb 6:9 We are persuaded better things of you. That you will not bear thorns and briers.
