Bible: Hebrews 12:18-24

12:18 For you have not come to something that can be touched, 1  to a burning fire and darkness and gloom and a whirlwind 12:19 and the blast of a trumpet and a voice uttering words 2  such that those who heard begged to hear no more. 3  12:20 For they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned.” 4  12:21 In fact, the scene 5  was so terrifying that Moses said, “I shudder with fear.” 6  12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion, the city 7  of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the assembly 12:23 and congregation of the firstborn, who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous, who have been made perfect, 12:24 and to Jesus, the mediator 8  of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does. 9
