1 Therefore, my fellow-Christians, who have likewise heard the heavenly invitation, observe how faithful Jesus, the commissioner and high priest of our religion,
1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
1 Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.
2 has been to the God who appointed him, just as Moses was, in all the house of God.
2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
2 He was faithful to the One who appointed Him, just as Moses was in all God’s household.
2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was in all God's household,
3 For Jesus is entitled to as much more honor than Moses as the builder of a house is than the house he builds.
3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
3 For Jesus is considered worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the builder has more honor than the house.
3 because he is worthy of greater glory than Moses in the same way that the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself.
4 For every house has a builder, and the builder of the universe is God.
4 For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.
4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.
4 After all, every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
5 Now the faithfulness of Moses in all the house of God was that of a servant, in faithfully repeating what he was told to say;
5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
5 Moses was faithful in all God's household as a servant who was to testify to what would be said later,
6 but Christ's faithfulness was that of a son set over the house of God. And we are that house, if we keep up our courage and our triumphant hope to the very end.
6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
6 but the Messiah was faithful as the Son in charge of God's household, and we are his household if we hold on to our courage and the hope in which we rejoice.
7 Therefore, as the holy Spirit says, "If you hear his voice today,
7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:Today, if you hear His voice,
7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, "Today, if you hear his voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts as your forefathers provoked me by doing, As in that time of trial in the desert,
8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
8 do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,on the day of testing in the wilderness,
8 do not harden your hearts as they did when they provoked me during the time of testing in the wilderness.
9 Where your forefathers put my doings to the proof for forty years, Though they saw them all the time.
9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
9 where your fathers tested Me, tried Me,and saw My works
9 There your ancestors tested me,
10 That was why I was angry with that generation, And I said, 'Their minds are always wandering, And they have never found my paths.'
10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
10 for 40 years.Therefore I was provoked with that generationand said, “They always go astray in their hearts,and they have not known My ways.”
10 even though they had seen my actions for 40 years. That is why I was indignant with that generation and said, "They are always going astray in their hearts, and they have not known my ways.'
11 But as I made oath in my anger, They shall never be admitted to my Rest!"
11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
11 So in my anger I swore a solemn oath that they would never enter my rest."
12 See to it, my brothers, that no one of you has a wicked, unbelieving heart, that turns away from the ever-living God,
12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
12 Watch out, brothers, so that there won’t be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart that departs from the living God.
12 See to it, my brothers, that no evil, unbelieving heart is found in any of you, as shown by your turning away from the living God.
13 but encourage one another every day, as long as we can still speak of Today, so that no one of you may have his heart hardened by the pleasantness of sin.
13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
13 Instead, continue to encourage one another every day, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin,
14 For we are true partners with Christ if we really keep the conviction that we had at first unshaken to the very end.
14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
14 because we are the Messiah's partners only if we hold on to our original confidence to the end.
15 So while we can still speak of Today, if you hear him speak, do not harden your hearts, as they provoked him by doing.
15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
15 As it is said, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as they did when they provoked me."
16 For who was it that heard him speak and yet provoked him? Was it not all those who had escaped from Egypt under Moses' leadership?
16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
16 Now who heard him and provoked him? Was it not all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses?
17 And who was it with whom God was angry forty whole years? Was it not with those who had sinned, who dropped dead in the desert?
17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
17 And with whom was he angry for 40 years? Was it not with those who sinned and whose bodies fell dead in the wilderness?
18 And who was it to whom God made oath that they should not be admitted to his Rest, if it was not to those who had disobeyed him?
18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
18 And who did He swear to that they would not enter His rest, if not those who disobeyed?
18 And to whom did he swear that they would never enter his rest? It was to those who disobeyed him, was it not?
19 So we see that it was their unbelief that kept them from being admitted to it.
19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of their unbelief.
