1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, attentively consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest whom we have confessed;
2 who, as well as Moses, is faithful to him that appointed him over all his house.
3 Indeed, he has been accounted worthy of glory, as far superior to Moses, as that of the builder is superior to the house.
4 Now every house is built by some one; but he, the builder of all things, is God.
5 And Moses, indeed, as a servant, was faithful in all his house, for a testimony of the things that were to be spoken by him;
6 but Christ, as a Son, over his own house-whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence, and the rejoicing of our hope, unshaken to the end.
7 «Wherefore, as the Holy Spirit says,» 'Today, if you will hear his voice,'
8 harden not your hearts, as in the bitter provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness;
9 where your fathers tempted me, and proved me, yet saw my works for forty years.
10 Wherefore, I was displeased with that generation, and said, They always err in heart, and they have not known my ways.
11 «So, I swore, in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.»
12 Brethren, take heed, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, by departing from the living God.
13 But, lest any of you be hardened, through the deceitfulness of sin, exhort one another every day, while it is called Today:
14 (for we are all partakers of Christ, if, indeed, we hold fast this first confidence firm to the end;)
15 «with this saying,» 'Today, if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the bitter provocation.'
16 For some, when they heard, did bitterly provoke; yet, not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
17 Was it not with them who sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?
18 And to whom did he swear, that they should not enter into his rest, but to them who did not believe?
19 So, we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
