181For you have not come to 2a mountain that can be touched and to a blazingfire, and to darkness and gloom and whirlwind,
and to the 3blast of a trumpet and the 4sound of wordswhich sound was such that those who heard5begged that nofurtherword be spoken to them.
For they could not bear the command, "6IFEVEN A BEASTTOUCHES THE MOUNTAIN, IT WILL BE STONED."
And soterrible was the sight, that Mosessaid, "7I AMFULL OF FEAR and trembling."
But 8you have come to MountZion and to 9the city of 10the livingGod, 11the heavenlyJerusalem, and to 12myriads of aangels,
to the generalassembly and 13church of the firstborn who 14are enrolled in heaven, and to God, 15the Judge of all, and to the 16spirits of the righteousmadeperfect,
and to Jesus, the 17mediator of a newcovenant, and to the 18sprinkledblood, which speaksbetterthan19the blood of Abel.
