Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:1 - Therefore, we also having so great a cloud of witnesses set around us, every weight having put off, and the closely besetting sin, through endurance may we run the contest that is set before us,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:2 - looking to the author and perfecter of faith -- Jesus, who, over-against the joy set before him -- did endure a cross, shame having despised, on the right hand also of the throne of God did sit down;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:3 - for consider again him who endured such gainsaying from the sinners to himself, that ye may not be wearied in your souls -- being faint.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:4 - Not yet unto blood did ye resist -- with the sin striving;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:5 - and ye have forgotten the exhortation that doth speak fully with you as with sons, 'My son, be not despising chastening of the Lord, nor be faint, being reproved by Him,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:6 - for whom the Lord doth love He doth chasten, and He scourgeth every son whom He receiveth;'
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:7 - if chastening ye endure, as to sons God beareth Himself to you, for who is a son whom a father doth not chasten?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:8 - and if ye are apart from chastening, of which all have become partakers, then bastards are ye, and not sons.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:9 - Then, indeed, fathers of our flesh we have had, chastising us, and we were reverencing them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of the spirits, and live?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:10 - for they, indeed, for a few days, according to what seemed good to them, were chastening, but He for profit, to be partakers of His separation;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:11 - and all chastening for the present, indeed, doth not seem to be of joy, but of sorrow, yet afterward the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those exercised through it -- it doth yield.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:12 - Wherefore, the hanging-down hands and the loosened knees set ye up;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:13 - and straight paths make for your feet, that that which is lame may not be turned aside, but rather be healed;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:14 - peace pursue with all, and the separation, apart from which no one shall see the Lord,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:15 - looking diligently over lest any one be failing of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness springing up may give trouble, and through this many may be defiled;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:16 - lest any one be a fornicator, or a profane person, as Esau, who in exchange for one morsel of food did sell his birthright,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:17 - for ye know that also afterwards, wishing to inherit the blessing, he was disapproved of, for a place of reformation he found not, though with tears having sought it.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:18 - For ye came not near to the mount touched and scorched with fire, and to blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:19 - and a sound of a trumpet, and a voice of sayings, which those having heard did entreat that a word might not be added to them,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:20 - for they were not bearing that which is commanded, 'And if a beast may touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or with an arrow shot through,'
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:21 - and, (so terrible was the sight,) Moses said, 'I am fearful exceedingly, and trembling.'
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:22 - But, ye came to Mount Zion, and to a city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of messengers,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:23 - to the company and assembly of the first-born in heaven enrolled, and to God the judge of all, and to spirits of righteous men made perfect,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:24 - and to a mediator of a new covenant -- Jesus, and to blood of sprinkling, speaking better things than that of Abel!
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:25 - See, may ye not refuse him who is speaking, for if those did not escape who refused him who upon earth was divinely speaking -- much less we who do turn away from him who speaketh from heaven,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:26 - whose voice the earth shook then, and now hath he promised, saying, 'Yet once -- I shake not only the earth, but also the heaven;'
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:27 - and this -- 'Yet once' -- doth make evident the removal of the things shaken, as of things having been made, that the things not shaken may remain;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:28 - wherefore, a kingdom that cannot be shaken receiving, may we have grace, through which we may serve God well-pleasingly, with reverence and religious fear;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 12:29 - for also our God is a consuming fire.
