Hebrews 12:18-29

The Mountain of Fear and the Mountain of Joy

18 You have not come to a mountain that can be touched
and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and
storm; 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, 20 because they could not bear what
was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain,
it must be stoned to death.” 21 The sight was so terrifying
that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.” 22 But you
have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the
heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon
thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of
the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have
come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous
made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant,
and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than
the blood of Abel. 25 See to it that you do not refuse him
who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him
who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we
turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that
time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised,
“Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the
heavens.” 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing
of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that
what cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we
are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be
thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence
and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”
