For ye are not come to the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor to blackness, and to darkness, and tempest,
And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which [voice] they that heard, entreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:
And so terrible was the sight, [that] Moses said, I exceedingly fear and tremble:)
But ye are come to mount Sion, and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the first-born, who are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel.
