Hebrews 12:1-3 American Standard Version (ASV)

12 Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every [a]weight, and the sin which [b]doth so easily beset us, and let us run with [c]patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the [d]author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that hath endured such gainsaying of sinners against [e]himself, that ye wax not weary, fainting in your souls.
