Hebrews 12:9-20

NLT 9 Since we respected our earthly fathers who disciplined us, shouldn’t we submit even more to the discipline of the Father of our spirits, and live forever? NIV 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! NLT 10 For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in his holiness. NIV 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. NLT 11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. NIV 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. NLT 12 So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. NIV 12 Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. NLT 13 Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong. NIV 13 “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. NLT 14 Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord. NIV 14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. NLT 15 Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. NIV 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. NLT 16 Make sure that no one is immoral or godless like Esau, who traded his birthright as the firstborn son for a single meal. NIV 16 See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. NLT 17 You know that afterward, when he wanted his father’s blessing, he was rejected. It was too late for repentance, even though he begged with bitter tears. NIV 17 Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. Even though he sought the blessing with tears, he could not change what he had done. NLT 18 You have not come to a physical mountain, to a place of flaming fire, darkness, gloom, and whirlwind, as the Israelites did at Mount Sinai. NIV 18 You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; NLT 19 For they heard an awesome trumpet blast and a voice so terrible that they begged God to stop speaking. 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, NLT 20 They staggered back under God’s command: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must 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 to death.”
