Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:1 - Let *us* also therefore, having so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, laying aside every weight, and sin which so easily entangles us, run with endurance the race that lies before us,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:2 - looking stedfastly on Jesus the leader and completer of faith: who, in view of the joy lying before him, endured the cross, having despised the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:3 - For consider well him who endured so great contradiction from sinners against himself, that ye be not weary, fainting in your minds.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:4 - Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, wrestling against sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:5 - And ye have quite forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when reproved by him;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:6 - for whom the Lord loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:7 - Ye endure for chastening, God conducts himself towards you as towards sons; for who is the son that the father chastens not?

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:8 - But if ye are without chastening, of which all have been made partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:9 - Moreover we have had the fathers of our flesh as chasteners, and we reverenced them; shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live?

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:10 - For they indeed chastened for a few days, as seemed good to them; but he for profit, in order to the partaking of his holiness.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:11 - But no chastening at the time seems to be matter of joy, but of grief; but afterwards yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those exercised by it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:12 - Wherefore lift up the hands that hang down, and the failing knees;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:13 - and make straight paths for your feet, that that which is lame be not turned aside; but that rather it may be healed.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:14 - Pursue peace with all, and holiness, without which no one shall see the Lord:

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:15 - watching lest there be any one who lacks the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and many be defiled by it;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:16 - lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one meal sold his birthright;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:17 - for ye know that also afterwards, desiring to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, (for he found no place for repentance) although he sought it earnestly with tears.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:18 - For ye have not come to the mount that might be touched and was all on fire, and to obscurity, and darkness, and tempest,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:19 - and trumpet's sound, and voice of words; which they that heard, excusing themselves, declined the word being addressed to them any more:

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:20 - (for they were not able to bear what was enjoined: And if a beast should touch the mountain, it shall be stoned;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:21 - and, so fearful was the sight, Moses said, I am exceedingly afraid and full of trembling;)

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:22 - but ye have come to mount Zion; and to the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem; and to myriads of angels,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:23 - the universal gathering; and to the assembly of the firstborn who are registered in heaven; and to God, judge of all; and to the spirits of just men made perfect;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:24 - and to Jesus, mediator of a new covenant; and to the blood of sprinkling, speaking better than Abel.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:25 - See that ye refuse not him that speaks. For if those did not escape who had refused him who uttered the oracles on earth, much more we who turn away from him who does so from heaven:

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:26 - whose voice then shook the earth; but now he has promised, saying, Yet once will *I* shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:27 - But this Yet once, signifies the removing of what is shaken, as being made, that what is not shaken may remain.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:28 - Wherefore let us, receiving a kingdom not to be shaken, have grace, by which let us serve God acceptably with reverence and fear.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:29 - For also our God is a consuming fire.
DBY

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
