Ibrani 12:12-24

12:12 Therefore, strengthen 1  your listless hands and your weak knees, 2  12:13 and make straight paths for your feet, 3  so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but be healed.

Do Not Reject God’s Warning

12:14 Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness, 4  for without it no one will see the Lord. 12:15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God, that no one be like a bitter root springing up 5  and causing trouble, and through him many become defiled. 12:16 And see to it that no one becomes 6  an immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal. 7  12:17 For you know that 8  later when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no opportunity for repentance, although he sought the blessing 9  with tears. 12:18 For you have not come to something that can be touched, 10  to a burning fire and darkness and gloom and a whirlwind 12:19 and the blast of a trumpet and a voice uttering words 11  such that those who heard begged to hear no more. 12  12:20 For they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned.” 13  12:21 In fact, the scene 14  was so terrifying that Moses said, “I shudder with fear.” 15  12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion, the city 16  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 17  of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does. 18

[12:12]  1 tn Or “straighten.”

[12:12]  2 sn A quotation from Isa 35:3. Strengthen your listless hands and your weak knees refers to the readers’ need for renewed resolve and fresh strength in their struggles (cf. Heb 10:36-39; 12:1-3).

[12:13]  3 sn A quotation from Prov 4:26. The phrase make straight paths for your feet is figurative for “stay on God’s paths.”

[12:14]  4 sn The references to peace and holiness show the close connection between this paragraph and the previous one. The pathway toward “holiness” and the need for it is cited in Heb 12:10 and 14. More importantly Prov 4:26-27 sets up the transition from one paragraph to the next: It urges people to stay on godly paths (Prov 4:26, quoted here in v. 13) and promises that God will lead them in peace if they do so (Prov 4:27 [LXX], quoted in v. 14).

[12:15]  5 tn Grk “that there not be any root of bitterness,” but referring figuratively to a person who causes trouble (as in Deut 29:17 [LXX] from which this is quoted).

[12:15]  sn An allusion to Deut 29:18.

[12:16]  6 tn Grk “that there not be any,” continuing from v. 15.

[12:16]  7 sn An allusion to Gen 27:34-41.

[12:17]  8 tn Or a command: “for understand that.”

[12:17]  9 tn Grk “it,” referring either to the repentance or the blessing. But the account in Gen 27:34-41 (which the author appeals to here) makes it clear that the blessing is what Esau sought. Thus in the translation the referent (the blessing) is specified for clarity.

[12:18]  10 tn This describes the nation of Israel approaching God on Mt. Sinai (Exod 19). There is a clear contrast with the reference to Mount Zion in v. 22, so this could be translated “a mountain that can be touched.” But the word “mountain” does not occur here and the more vague description seems to be deliberate.

[12:19]  11 tn Grk “a voice of words.”

[12:19]  12 tn Grk “a voice…from which those who heard begged that a word not be added to them.”

[12:20]  13 sn A quotation from Exod 19:12-13.

[12:21]  14 tn Grk “that which appeared.”

[12:21]  15 tn Grk “I am terrified and trembling.”

[12:21]  sn A quotation from Deut 9:19.

[12:22]  16 tn Grk “and the city”; the conjunction is omitted in translation since it seems to be functioning epexegetically – that is, explaining further what is meant by “Mount Zion.”

[12:24]  17 tn The Greek word μεσίτης (mesith", “mediator”) in this context does not imply that Jesus was a mediator in the contemporary sense of the word, i.e., he worked for compromise between opposing parties. Here the term describes his function as the one who was used by God to enact a new covenant which established a new relationship between God and his people, but entirely on God’s terms.

[12:24]  18 sn Abel’s shed blood cried out to the Lord for justice and judgment, but Jesus’ blood speaks of redemption and forgiveness, something better than Abel’s does (Gen 4:10; Heb 9:11-14; 11:4).
