For you are not come to a mountain that might be touched and a burning fire and a whirlwind and darkness and storm,
And the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, which they that had excused themselves, that the word might not be spoken to them.
For they did not endure that which was said: and if so much as a beast shall touch the mount, it shall be stoned.
And so terrible was that which was seen, Moses said: I am frighted, and tremble.
But you are come to mount Sion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to the company of many thousands of angels,
And to the church of the firstborn who are written in the heavens, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of the just made perfect,
And to Jesus the mediator of the new testament, and to the sprinkling of blood which speaketh better than that of Abel.

Whose voice then moved the earth; but now he promiseth, saying: Yet once more: and I will move, not only the earth, but heaven also.
And in that he saith: Yet once more, he signifieth the translation of the moveable things as made, that those things may remain which are immoveable.
Therefore, receiving an immoveable kingdom, we have grace: whereby let us serve, pleasing God, with fear and reverence.
For our God is a consuming fire.
