1 Whence, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our :confession, Jesus; 2 who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also was Moses in all his :house. 3 For he hath been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by so much as he that †built the house hath more honor than the house. 4 For every house is †built by some one; but who †built all things is God. 5 And Moses indeed was faithful in all his :house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken; 6 but Christ as a son, over his :house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the boldness and the glorying of the hope firm unto the end. 7 Wherefore, even as the Holy :Spirit saith, Today if ye shall hear his :voice,
8 Harden not your :hearts, as in the provocation, Like as the day of the trial in the wilderness,
9 Where your :fathers tried me by proving me,
And saw my :works forty years,
10 Wherefore I was displeased with this :generation, And said, They always err at heart:
But THEY did not know my :ways;
11 As I sware in my :wrath,
If they shall enter into my :rest.
12 Look, brethren, lest haply an evil heart of unbelief shall be in any one of you, in :falling away from a living God: 13 but exhort one another each day, so long as it is called Today; lest anyone of you be hardened by deceitfulness of :sin: 14 for we are become partakers of the Christ, if indeed we hold fast the beginning of the confidence firm unto the end: 15 while it is said,
Today if ye shall hear his :voice,
Harden not your :hearts, as in the provocation.
16 For who, when they heard, did provoke? nay, not all that came out of Egypt by Moses? 17 And with whom was he displeased forty years? not with them that sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his :rest, but to the disobedient? 19 And we see that they could not enter because of unbelief.
