18 For you have not come to a mountain that might be touched, and that burned with fire, and to blackness, darkness, tempest,
19 the sound of a shofar, and the voice of words; which those who heard it begged that not one more word should be spoken to them,
20 for they could not stand that which was enjoined, "If even an animal touches the mountain, it shall be stoned;"
21 and so fearful was the appearance, that Moshe said, "I am terrified and trembling."
22 But you have come to Mount Tziyon, and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Yerushalayim, and to innumerable hosts of angels,
23 to the general assembly and assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 to Yeshua, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better than that of Hevel.
25 See that you don't refuse him who speaks. For if they didn't escape when they refused him who warned on the Eretz, how much more will we not escape who turn away from him who warns from heaven,
26 whose voice shook the eretz, then, but now he has promised, saying, "Yet once more will I shake not only the eretz, but also the heavens."
27 This phrase, "Yet once more," signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that have been made, that those things which are not shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, receiving a kingdom that can't be shaken, let us have grace, whereby we may offer service well pleasing to God, with reverence and awe,
29 for our God is a consuming fire.
