Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which does so easily beset us and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed.(circled, surrounded).about with so great a cloud of witnesses.(Paul who wrote the Book of Hebrews, refers here to what he wrote in the previous chapter, Chapter 11; this can also apply to all those in the invisible family of God), let us lay aside every weight and the sin which does so easily beset us.(so, how does one keep the evil out?).and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Emmanuel the author and finisher of our faith that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Emmanuel the.author and finisher.of our.(word 'our' not in original; Emmanuel the Christ is both the author and finisher of faith and how does this work?).faith, who for the joy.(Emmanuel knew that physical things on Earth are temporal and that the real life lies elsewhere, where? His work with us is making us perfect:.Deuteronomy 32:4; Hebrews 13:21; 1Peter 5:10).that was set before him.(John 17:5).endured the cross, despising the shame.(original, 'comprehended why the shame', felt it was a bad thing that men would treat human beings this way; word 'despise' in the original also connotes 'disregard', that is, Emmanuel disregarded what He had to go through, because He knew why {Matthew 26:53,54} and wanted to go through it for He was a lover of mankind:.John 3:16,17; Matthew 26:66-68; 27:22-31, 38-44; Mark 9:12; Luke 23:11, 35-39; 1Peter 2:23;; He didn't despise that He had to go through this cruelty because He saw the other side to it why He didn't).and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.

Hebrews 12:4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

Hebrews 12:5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening.('chastening' here means 'teaching', 'instruction', 'training'').of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him.

Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loves he chastens.('chastens' here means 'teaches', 'instructs', 'trains' or training situations).and scourges.(a whip, scourge, a calamity, a misfortune sent by God in that laws are set up that automatically work to discipline, so really you are ensuring your own correction).every son whom he receives.

Hebrews 12:7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons, for what son is he whom the father chastens not?

Hebrews 12:8 But if you be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are you bastards and not sons.

Hebrews 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us and we gave them reverence. Shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits.(Numbers 16:22), and live?

Hebrews 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened us following what was believed to be best for us and he for our profit toward being partakers of his holiness.

Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seems to be joyous, but grievous. Nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Hebrews 12:12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down and the feeble knees;

Hebrews 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way, but let it rather be healed.(have an eye to the positive things in life).

Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.(what's 'the Lord' and do you see Him as cruel and angry or peaceful and kind?).

Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you and thereby many be defiled..(and from where does it spring up from?)

Hebrews 12:16 Lest there be any fornicator or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

Hebrews 12:17 For you know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected. For he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Hebrews 12:20 For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned or thrust through with a dart.

Hebrews 12:21 And so terrible.(original 'awesome in power causing fear').was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake.

Hebrews 12:22.But you are come.(original is 'but come', no 'you are'; in other words 'become part of the plan of God through Christ within you; how and when?; comprehend what Christ is).unto mount Sion and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem and to an innumerable company of angels.(how innumerable?),

Hebrews 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven and to God the Judge of all and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

Hebrews 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn.(a spiritual in heart invisible church comprised of those firstborn), which are written in heaven.(these are those who want to be of the same qualities as God is).and to God the Judge of all.(how is the Creator the judge of all?).and to the spirits.(your spirit goes on after death).of just men.("just men" in the original is "righteous"; those who have been declared righteous because of their belief in Emmanuel the Christ; comprehend.what 'Christ' is).made perfect.(like Moses and Elijah:.Matthew 17:2,3),

Hebrews 12:24 And to Emmanuel the mediator of the new covenant and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.

The blood of Emmanuel is the reality of which the offering of Abel.(the offering of Abel, one of the first two male children of Adam and Eve, the other being the obdurate Cain, was a type; also Hebrews 9:18-28.

Hebrews 12:25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven.

Hebrews 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth. But now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven..(from Haggai 2:6)

Hebrews 12:27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made.(things we've made our life out of), that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.(*).

Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom.(Matthew 16:28).which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence.(is the feeling of innate.moral.repugnance to doing a dishonorable act and these would be acts not of love).and godly fear.

Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire..(?)
