Hebrews 11:20 Hebrews 12:29

20 By faith aIsaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even concerning things to come.

21 By faith aJacob, while he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph and bworshipped God, while 1leaning on the top of his staff.

22 By faith aJoseph, nearing his end, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel and bgave orders concerning his bones.

23 By faith aMoses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents because they saw that the child was blovely, and they did not fear the cking's decree.

24 By faith Moses, when he had agrown up, refused to be called the bson of Pharaoh's daughter,

25 Choosing rather to be aill treated with the people of God than to have the 1temporary 2enjoyment of sin,

26 1aConsidering the 2breproach of the Christ greater riches than the ctreasures of Egypt; for he dlooked away to the 3ereward.

27 By faith he aleft Egypt, not fearing the bwrath of the king, for he 1persevered as one cseeing the dunseen One.

28 By faith he instituted the aPassover and the pouring out of the blood so that the bone destroying the firstborn would not touch them.

29 By faith they apassed through the Red Sea as through dry land, in which the Egyptians, while making the attempt, were swallowed up.

30 1By faith the awalls of Jericho fell, having been bencircled for a period of seven days.

31 By faith aRahab the harlot did not perish with those who were disobedient, since she had breceived the spies with peace.

32 And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of aGideon, bBarak, cSamson, dJephthah, of eDavid and fSamuel and the prophets,

33 Who through faith aovercame kingdoms, bworked righteousness, cobtained promises, dstopped the mouths of lions,

34 aQuenched the power of fire, bescaped the edge of the sword, were made strong in weakness, became cmighty in war, routed the armies of foreigners.

35 Women areceived their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured to death, not accepting 1deliverance, in order that they might obtain a 2bbetter resurrection.

36 And still others underwent the trial of amockings and scourgings, even, moreover, of bonds and bimprisonment.

37 They were astoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they died by the bmurder of the sword, they wandered about in sheepskins, in goatskins, destitute, afflicted, cill treated

38 (Of 1whom the world was not worthy), wandering over adeserts and bmountains and in ccaves and holes of the earth.

39 And these all, having obtained a good atestimony through their faith, did bnot obtain the promise,

40 Because God has 1provided something 2abetter for us, so that 3apart from us they would not be made perfect.


CHAPTER 12

1 Therefore let us also, having so great a 1acloud of 2witnesses surrounding us, put away every 3encumbrance and the 4bsin which so easily entangles us and crun with dendurance the 5race which is set before us,

2 1Looking away aunto 2Jesus, the 3bAuthor and 4Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the ccross, despising the dshame, and has 5esat down on the right hand of the fthrone of God.

3 For acompare Him who has endured such bcontradiction by sinners against Himself, so that you may not grow weary, 1fainting in your souls.

4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, struggling against 1sin,

5 And you have completely forgotten the exhortation which reasons with you as with sons, a"My son, do not regard lightly the 1discipline of the Lord, nor faint when reproved by Him;

6 For whom the Lord loves He 1adisciplines, and He bscourges every son whom He receives.''

7 It is for 1discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with asons. For what son is there whom the father does not discipline?

8 But if you are without discipline, of which all sons have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

9 Furthermore we have had the fathers of our flesh as 1discipliners and we arespected them; shall we not much more be in subjection to the 2bFather of spirits and clive?

10 For they disciplined for a few days as it seemed good to them; but He, for what is profitable that we might partake of His 1aholiness.

11 Now no discipline at the present time seems to be a matter of joy, but of grief; but afterward it yields the 1apeaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been exercised by it.

12 Therefore 1set straight the ahands which hang down and the paralyzed knees,

13 And make astraight 1paths for your feet, that what is lame may not be 2put out of joint but rather may be bhealed.

14 aPursue peace with all men and 1bsanctification, without which no one will see the Lord;

15 Looking carefully lest anyone 1afall away from the bgrace of God; lest any 2croot of bitterness springing up trouble you, and through this many be ddefiled;

16 Lest there be any afornicator or profane person like bEsau, who for one meal gave up his own 1birthright.

17 For you know that also afterward, when he adesired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected; for he found 1no place for repentance, even though he sought it with tears.

18 For you have not come forward to a 1amountain which could be btouched and which was set on cfire, and to ddarkness and egloom and whirlwind,

19 And to the asound of a trumpet and to the bvoice of words, because of which those who heard centreated that no further word be spoken to them;

20 For they could not bear that which was being commanded: a"If even a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned.''

21 And so fearful was the sight, Moses said, "I am afull of fear and trembling.''

22 But you have come forward to 1Mount aZion and to the 2bcity of the cliving God, the dheavenly Jerusalem; and to emyriads of angels, to the 3universal gathering;

23 And to the achurch of the 1bfirstborn, who have been 2cenrolled in the heavens; and to God, the dJudge of all; and to the spirits of righteous men who have been made perfect;

24 And to Jesus, the aMediator of a 1bnew covenant; and to the 2cblood of dsprinkling, which 3speaks something better than that of eAbel.

25 See that you do not refuse Him who aspeaks, for if those did not bescape who refused Him who warned them upon the earth, much more we shall not cescape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven,

26 Whose voice at that time ashook the earth but now has promised, saying, b"Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven.''

27 And this word, "Yet once more,'' shows clearly the aremoval of the things being shaken as being of things having been made, that the things which are not shaken may bremain.

28 Therefore receiving an unshakable 1akingdom, let us 2have bgrace, through which we may cserve God dwell-pleasingly with piety and efear;

29 For our God is also a 1consuming afire.
