because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”[fn]

You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm;

to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them,

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:24

to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

Tools specific to Heb 12:25

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 12:25

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,
