12 For the word of God(A) is alive(B) and active.(C) Sharper than any double-edged sword,(D) it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.(E) 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.(F) Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest(G) who has ascended into heaven,[a](H) Jesus the Son of God,(I) let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.(J) 15 For we do not have a high priest(K) who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are(L)—yet he did not sin.(M) 16 Let us then approach(N) God’s throne of grace with confidence,(O) so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
