The Call to Endurance

Tools specific to Heb 12:1

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:1

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:2

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:2

keeping our eyes on Jesus,[fn] the source and perfecter[fn] of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him[fn] endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.

  
Fatherly Discipline

Tools specific to Heb 12:3

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:3

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, so that you won’t grow weary and lose heart.

Tools specific to Heb 12:4

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:4

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:5

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:5

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

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

or faint when you are reproved by Him,

Tools specific to Heb 12:6

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:6

for the Lord disciplines the one He loves

and punishes every son He receives.

Tools specific to Heb 12:7

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:7

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:8

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:8

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:9

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:9

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:10

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 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.

Tools specific to Heb 12:11

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:11

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:12

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:12

Therefore strengthen your tired hands and weakened knees,

Tools specific to Heb 12:13

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 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

Tools specific to Heb 12:14

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:14

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:15

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 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 by it, defiling many.

Tools specific to Heb 12:16

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:16

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:17

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:17

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:18

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:18

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:19

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 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,

Tools specific to Heb 12:20

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:20

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:21

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:21

The appearance was so terrifying that Moses said, I am terrified and trembling.)

Tools specific to Heb 12:22

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:22

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:23

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:23

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:24

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:24

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

Tools specific to Heb 12:25

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:25

Make sure 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.

Tools specific to Heb 12:26

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 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 heaven.

Tools specific to Heb 12:27

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 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.

Tools specific to Heb 12:28

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:28

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us hold on to grace.[fn] By it, we may serve God acceptably, with reverence and awe,

Tools specific to Heb 12:29

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:29

for our God is a consuming fire.

Or us, looking to Jesus
Or the founder and completer
Or who instead of the joy lying before Him ; that is, the joy of heaven
= Christians
Lit discipline, of which all have become participants
Or so that the lame will not be turned aside
Or registered
Or let us give thanks, or let us have grace
