how shall *we* escape if we have been negligent ofr so great salvation, which, having had its commencement in being spoken of by the Lord, has been confirmed to us by those who have heard;

JND Translation Notes

r
Not merely neglected when presented, but not cared for when, as here, they were nominally inside making profession. As Matt. 22.5. "They made light of" the invitation to the supper. 1 Tim. 4.14. "negligent" of the gift in him. he had it. Heb. 8.9. Israel was disobedient, and Jehovah "did not regard them."
