258See to it that you do not refuse Him who is 9speaking. For 10ifthose did not escape when they 11refused him who 12warned them on earth, amuchless will we escape who turnaway from Him who 13warns from heaven.
And 14His voiceshook the earththen, but now He has promised, saying, "15YETONCEMORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN."
27This expression, "Yetoncemore," denotes16the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of createdthings, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28Therefore, since we receive a 17kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us bshowgratitude, by which we may 18offer to God an acceptableservice with reverence and awe;
for 19our God is a consumingfire.
