KJV 13 “Occupy until I come”
Heb 9:26 but now once at the consummation (and close) of the ages He has been manifested (appeared) to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, 28 so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
