Hebrews 6:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

But the writer refuses to believe that his readers will incur such a fate.

Beloved (ἀγαπητοί)

Only here in the epistle. It often suggests an argument. See 1 Corinthians 10:14; 1 Corinthians 15:58; 2 Corinthians 7:1.

We are persuaded (πεπείσμεθα)

We are firmly convinced. The verb indicates a past hesitation overcome.

Better things (τὰ κρείσσονα)

The article gives a collective force, the better state of things, the going on unto perfection (Hebrews 6:1). For κρείσσονα better, see on Hebrews 1:4.

That accompany salvation (ἐχόμενα σωτηρίας)

Ἔχεσθαι with a genitive is a common Greek idiom meaning to hold one's self to a person or thing; hence to be closely joined to it. So in a local sense, Mark 1:38; in a temporal sense, Luke 13:33, next. He is persuaded that they will give heed to all things which attend the work of salvation and will enjoy all that attaches to a saved condition.
