Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore draw near (proserxwmeta oun).
Present active middle volitive subjunctive of proserxomai. "Let us keep on coming to" our high priest, this sympathizing and great high priest. Instead of deserting him, let us make daily use of him. This verb in Hebrews means reverent approach for worship (7:25; 10:1,22; 11:6).

Unto the throne of grace (twi tronwi thv xaritov).
This old word (tronov) we have taken into English, the seat of kings and of God and so of Christ (1:3,8), but marked by grace because Jesus is there (Matthew 19:28). Hence we should come "with boldness" (meta parrhsiav). Telling Jesus the whole story of our shortcomings.

That we may receive mercy (ina labwmen eleov).
Purpose clause with ina and second aorist active subjunctive of lambanw.

And find grace (kai xarin eurwmen).
Second aorist active subjunctive of euriskw. We are sure to gain both of these aims because Jesus is our high priest on the throne.

To help us in time of need (eiv eukairon bohteian).
Bohteia is old word (from bohtew, 2:18 which see), in N.T. only here and Acts 27:17. Eukairov is an old word also (eu, well, kairov, opportunity), only here in N.T. "For well-timed help," "for help in the nick of time," before too late.
