Hebrews 12:18-29

CEB 18 You haven't drawn near to something that can be touched: a burning fire, darkness, shadow, a whirlwind, NRS 18 You have not come to something that can be touched, a blazing fire, and darkness, and gloom, and a tempest, CEB 19 a blast of a trumpet, and a sound of words that made the ones who heard it beg that there wouldn't be one more word. 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. CEB 20 They couldn't stand the command, If even a wild animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned. 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." CEB 21 The sight was so frightening that Moses said, "I'm terrified and shaking!" NRS 21 Indeed, so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, "I tremble with fear.") CEB 22 But you have drawn near to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem, to countless angels in a festival gathering, 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, CEB 23 to the assembly of God's firstborn children who are registered in heaven, to God the judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous who have been made perfect, 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, CEB 24 to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks better than Abel's blood. 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. CEB 25 See to it that you don't resist the one who is speaking. If the people didn't escape when they refused to listen to the one who warned them on earth, how will we escape if we reject the one who is warning from heaven? 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! CEB 26 His voice shook the earth then, but now he has made a promise: Still once more I will shake not only the earth but heaven also. 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." CEB 27 The words "still once more" reveal the removal of what is shaken—the things that are part of this creation—so that what isn't shaken will remain. 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. CEB 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that can't be shaken, let's continue to express our gratitude. With this gratitude, let's serve in a way that is pleasing to God with respect and awe, 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; CEB 29 because our God really is a consuming fire. NRS 29 for indeed our God is a consuming fire.
