Therefore we ought to give 2 the more earnest heed to the things that were heard, lest haply we drift away from them. For if the word spoken 2 through angels proved stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; how shall we escape, if we 3 neglect so great salvation? which having at the first been spoken through the Lord, was confirmed unto us by them that heard; God also bearing 4 witness with them, both by signs and wonders, and by manifold powers, and by 9 gifts of the 10 Holy Ghost, according to his own will.
