|Hebrews 12: 18 - 19, 22 - 24
||For you have not come to what may be touched, a blazing fire, and darkness, and gloom, and a tempest,
||and the sound of a trumpet, and a voice whose words made the hearers entreat that no further messages be spoken to them.
||But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering,
||and to the assembly of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven, and to a judge who is God of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
||and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks more graciously than the blood of Abel.
