Hebrews 12:10  Hebrews 12:29

10 For they disciplined for a few days as it seemed good to them; but He, for what is profitable that we might partake of His 1aholiness.

11 Now no discipline at the present time seems to be a matter of joy, but of grief; but afterward it yields the 1apeaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been exercised by it.

12 Therefore 1set straight the ahands which hang down and the paralyzed knees,

13 And make astraight 1paths for your feet, that what is lame may not be 2put out of joint but rather may be bhealed.

14 aPursue peace with all men and 1bsanctification, without which no one will see the Lord;

15 Looking carefully lest anyone 1afall away from the bgrace of God; lest any 2croot of bitterness springing up trouble you, and through this many be ddefiled;

16 Lest there be any afornicator or profane person like bEsau, who for one meal gave up his own 1birthright.

17 For you know that also afterward, when he adesired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected; for he found 1no place for repentance, even though he sought it with tears.

18 For you have not come forward to a 1amountain which could be btouched and which was set on cfire, and to ddarkness and egloom and whirlwind,

19 And to the asound of a trumpet and to the bvoice of words, because of which those who heard centreated that no further word be spoken to them;

20 For they could not bear that which was being commanded: a“If even a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned.”

21 And so fearful was the sight, Moses said, “I am afull of fear and trembling.”

22 But you have come forward to 1Mount aZion and to the 2bcity of the cliving God, the dheavenly Jerusalem; and to emyriads of angels, to the 3universal gathering;

23 And to the achurch of the 1bfirstborn, who have been 2cenrolled in the heavens; and to God, the dJudge of all; and to the spirits of righteous men who have been made perfect;

24 And to Jesus, the aMediator of a 1bnew covenant; and to the 2cblood of dsprinkling, which 3speaks something better than that of eAbel.

25 See that you do not refuse Him who aspeaks, for if those did not bescape who refused Him who warned them upon the earth, much more we shall not cescape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven,

26 Whose voice at that time ashook the earth but now has promised, saying, b“Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven.”

27 And this word, “Yet once more,” shows clearly the aremoval of the things being shaken as being of things having been made, that the things which are not shaken may bremain.

28 Therefore receiving an unshakable 1akingdom, let us 2have bgrace, through which we may cserve God dwell-pleasingly with piety and efear;

29 For our God is also a 1consuming afire.
