Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:1 - Therefore let us also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:2 - looking to Yeshua, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
(Pro 3:11, 12 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:3 - For consider him who has endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, that you don't grow weary, fainting in your souls.

A Father's Discipline

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:4 - You have not yet resisted to blood, striving against sin;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:5 - and you have forgotten the exhortation which reasons with you as with sons, "My son, don't take lightly the chastening of the Lord, Nor faint when you are 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 - It is for discipline that you endure. God deals with you as with sons, for what son is there whom his father doesn't discipline?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:8 - But if you are without discipline, whereof all have been made partakers, then are you illegitimate, and not sons.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:9 - Furthermore, we had the fathers of our flesh to chasten us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:10 - For they indeed, for a few days, punished us as seemed good to them; but he for our profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:11 - All chastening seems for the present to be not joyous but grievous; yet afterward it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been exercised thereby.
(Gen 25:29–34; 27:30–40 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:12 - Therefore, lift up the hands that hang down and the feeble knees,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:13 - and make straight paths for your feet, that that which is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:14 - Follow after shalom with all men, and the sanctification without which no man will see the Lord,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:15 - looking carefully lest there be any man who falls short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby the many be defiled;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:16 - lest there be any sexually immoral person, or profane person, as Esav, who sold his birthright for one meal.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:17 - For you know that even when he afterward desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for a change of mind though he sought it diligently with tears.

Contrast of Sinai and Zion

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:18 - For you have not come to a mountain that might be touched, and that burned with fire, and to blackness, darkness, tempest,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:19 - the sound of a shofar, and the voice of words; which those who heard it begged that not one more word should be spoken to them,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:20 - for they could not stand that which was commanded, "If even an animal touches the mountain, it shall be stoned;"
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:21 - and so fearful was the appearance, that Moshe said, "I am terrified and trembling."
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:22 - But you have come to Mount Tziyon, and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Yerushalayim, and to innumerable hosts of angels,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:23 - to the general assembly and assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:24 - to Yeshua, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better than that of Hevel.

The Unshaken Kingdom

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:25 - See that you don't refuse him who speaks. For if they didn't escape when they refused him who warned on the Eretz, how much more will we not escape who turn away from him who warns from heaven,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:26 - whose voice shook the eretz, then, but now he has promised, saying, "Yet once more I will shake not only the eretz, but also the heavens."
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:27 - This phrase, "Yet once more," signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that have been made, that those things which are not shaken may remain.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:28 - Therefore, receiving a kingdom that can't be shaken, let us have grace, through which we serve God acceptably, with reverence and awe,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:29 - for our God is a consuming fire.
