The Call to Endurance

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:1 -

Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every hindrance and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:2 -

keeping our eyes on Jesus,[fn] the source and perfecter[fn] of our faith. For the joy that lay before him,[fn] he endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Fatherly Discipline

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:3 -

For consider him who endured such hostility from sinners against himself, so that you won’t grow weary and give up.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:4 -

In struggling against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:5 -

And you have forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons:

My son, do not take the Lord’s discipline lightly

or lose heart when you are reproved by him,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:6 -

for the Lord disciplines the one he loves

and punishes every son he receives.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:7 -

Endure suffering as discipline: God is dealing with you as sons. For what son is there that a father does not discipline?

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:8 -

But if you are without discipline ​— ​which all receive[fn] ​— ​then you are illegitimate children and not sons.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:9 -

Furthermore, we had human fathers discipline us, and we respected them. Shouldn’t we submit even more to the Father of spirits and live?

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:10 -

For they disciplined us for a short time based on what seemed good to them, but he does it for our benefit, so that we can share his holiness.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:11 -

No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:12 -

Therefore, strengthen your tired hands and weakened knees,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:13 -

and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated[fn] but healed instead.

Warning against Rejecting God’s Grace

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:14 -

Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness ​— ​without it no one will see the Lord.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:15 -

Make sure that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no root of bitterness springs up, causing trouble and defiling many.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:16 -

And make sure that there isn’t any immoral[fn] or irreverent person like Esau, who sold his birthright in exchange for a single meal.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:17 -

For you know that later, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, even though he sought it with tears, because he didn’t find any opportunity for repentance.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:18 -

For you have not come to what could be touched, to a blazing fire, to darkness, gloom, and storm,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:19 -

to the blast of a trumpet, and the sound of words. Those who heard it begged that not another word be spoken to them,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:20 -

for they could not bear what was commanded: If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:21 -

The appearance was so terrifying that Moses said, I am trembling with fear.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:22 -

Instead, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God (the heavenly Jerusalem), to myriads of angels, a festive gathering,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:23 -

to the assembly of the firstborn whose names have been written[fn] in heaven, to a Judge, who is God of all, to the spirits of righteous people made perfect,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:24 -

and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which says better things than the blood of Abel.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:25 -

See to it that you do not reject the one who speaks. For if they did not escape when they rejected him who warned them on earth, even less will we if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:26 -

His voice shook the earth at that time, but now he has promised, Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:27 -

This expression, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of what can be shaken ​— ​that is, created things ​— ​so that what is not shaken might remain.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:28 -

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful. By it, we may serve God acceptably, with reverence and awe,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:29 -

for our God is a consuming fire.

CSB Footnotes
Or us, looking to Jesus
Or the founder and completer, or pioneer and perfecter
Or who instead of the joy lying before him
Lit discipline, of which all have become participants
Or so that the lame will not be turned aside
Or sexually immoral
Or registered
