Hebrews 12:18-29

NRS 18 You have not come to something that can be touched, a blazing fire, and darkness, and gloom, and a tempest, NIV 18 You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; NRS 19 and the sound of a trumpet, and a voice whose words made the hearers beg that not another word be spoken to them. NIV 19 to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, NRS 20 (For they could not endure the order that was given, "If even an animal touches the mountain, it shall be stoned to death." NIV 20 because they could not bear what was commanded: "If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned." NRS 21 Indeed, so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, "I tremble with fear.") NIV 21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, "I am trembling with fear." NRS 22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, NIV 22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, NRS 23 and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, NIV 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, NRS 24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. NIV 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. NRS 25 See that you do not refuse the one who is speaking; for if they did not escape when they refused the one who warned them on earth, how much less will we escape if we reject the one who warns from heaven! NIV 25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? NRS 26 At that time his voice shook the earth; but now he has promised, "Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heaven." NIV 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, "Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens." NRS 27 This phrase, "Yet once more," indicates the removal of what is shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. NIV 27 The words "once more" indicate the removing of what can be shaken--that is, created things--so that what cannot be shaken may remain. NRS 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe; NIV 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, NRS 29 for indeed our God is a consuming fire. NIV 29 for our "God is a consuming fire."
