1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also alay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us brun with cendurance the race that is set before us,
“aMy son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
Nor bfaint when you are reproved by Him;
And He scourges every son whom He receives.”
7 It is for discipline that you endure; aGod deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
8 But if you are without discipline, aof which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.
10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, aso that we may share His holiness.
17 For you know that even afterwards, awhen he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears.
20 For they could not bear the command, “aIf even a beast touches the mountain, it will be stoned.”
21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, “aI am full of fear and trembling.”
25 aSee to it that you do not refuse Him who is bspeaking. For cif those did not escape when they drefused him who ewarned them on earth, 1much less will we escape who turn away from Him who ewarns from heaven.
27 This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes athe removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
29 for aour God is a consuming fire.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
