GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
Meaning-for-Meaning (Closest Natural Equivalence)
not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Word-for-Word (Formal Equivalence)
You should not stay away from the church meetings, as some are doing, but you should meet together and encourage each other. Do this even more as you see the day coming.
New Century Version (NCV)
Thought-for-Thought (Functional Equivalence)
Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord’s coming is getting closer.
