12:1 Therefore let us also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
12:4 You have not yet resisted to blood, striving against sin;
12:5 and you have forgotten the exhortation which reasons with you as with sons, "My son, don`t take lightly the chastening of the Lord, Nor faint when you are reproved by him;
12:6 For whom the Lord loves, he chastens, And scourges every son whom he receives."
12:8 But if you are without discipline, whereof all have been made partakers, then are you illegitimate, and not sons.
12:9 Furthermore, we had the fathers of our flesh to chasten us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live?
12:10 For they indeed, for a few days, punished us as seemed good to them; but he for our profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness.
12:12 Therefore, lift up the hands that hang down and the feeble knees,
12:15 looking carefully lest there be any man who falls short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby the many be defiled;
12:16 lest there be any sexually immoral person, or profane person, as Esau, who sold his birthright for one meal.
12:25 See that you don`t refuse him who speaks. For if they didn`t escape when they refused him who warned on the Earth, how much more will we not escape who turn away from him who warns from heaven,
12:26 whose voice shook the earth, then, but now he has promised, saying, "Yet once more will I shake not only the earth, but also the heavens."
12:27 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.
