CSBChristian Standard Bible
1Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses#Heb 11:2,4-5,39 surrounding us, let us lay aside every hindrance and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance#1Co 9:24; Heb 10:36 the race that lies before us, 2keeping our eyes on Jesus,#12:2 Or us, looking to Jesus the source and perfecter#12:2 Or the founder and completer, or pioneer and perfecter of our faith. For the joy that lay before him,#12:2 Or who instead of the joy lying before him he endured the cross, despising the shame,#Lk 24:26; Php 2:8-9; Heb 13:13 and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
