Hebrews 12:25-29 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

25 See ye, that ye forsake [refuse] not the speaker; for if they that forsake him that spake on the earth, escaped not [if forsooth they escaped not (that) refused him that spake on earth], much more we that turn away from him that speaketh to us from heavens.

26 Whose voice then moved the earth, but now he again promiseth, and saith [saying], Yet once and I shall move not only the earth, but also heaven.

27 And that he saith, Yet once, he declareth the translation of moveable things, as of made things, that those things dwell, that be unmoveable.

28 Therefore we receiving the kingdom unmoveable, have we grace, by which serve we pleasing to God with dread and reverence.

29 For our God is fire that wasteth [For why our God is fire wasting].

Hebrews 12:25-29 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

25 See that you do not forsake him that speaks. For if they did not escape who refused him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven – 26 whose voice then shook the earth, and who now declares, saying: Yet once more will I shake, not the earth only, but also heaven.

27 No doubt this that he says – yet once more – signifies the removal of those things that are shaken, as of things that have ended their course, so that the things which are not shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, if we receive the kingdom that is not shaken, we have grace whereby we may serve God, and please him with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 12:25-29 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

25 [a]See that ye despise not him that speaketh: for if they escaped not which refused him, that spake on earth: much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven.

26 [b]Whose voice then shook the earth, and now hath declared, saying, Yet [c]once more will I shake, not the earth only, but also heaven.

27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things which are shaken, as of things which are made with hands, that the things which are not shaken, may remain.

28 [d]Wherefore seeing we receive a kingdom, which cannot be shaken, let us have grace whereby we may so serve God, that we may please him with [e]reverence and [f]fear.

29 For even our God is a consuming fire.
