    Hebrews 12:22; "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,"

    An Unshakable Kingdom

    …21 "The sight was so terrifying that even Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”

    22 Instead, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to myriads of angels

    23 in joyful assembly, to the congregation of the firstborn, enrolled in heaven.
    You have come to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,…"

    "innumerable company of angels," & "myriads of angels" = countless thousands of angels

    New International Version

    But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,

    New Living Translation

    No, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless thousands of angels in a joyful gathering.

    Contemporary English Version

    You have now come to Mount Zion and to the heavenly Jerusalem. This is the city of the living God, where thousands and thousands of angels have come to celebrate.
