1 Therefore, brethren, saints, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus, 2 who was faithful to him that appointed him over all his house, as also Moses was faithful. 3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who has built the house has more honour than the house. 4 For every house is built by someone, but he that created all things is God. 5 And Moses verily was faithful over all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after, 6 but Christ as a son over his own house, which house we are, if we hold fast the confidence and the glorious hope firmly until the end.
7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit saith, Today if ye will hear his voice, 8 harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 Where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Therefore, I was indignant with that generation and said, They do always err from their heart, and they have not known my ways. 11 So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.
12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unfaithfulness, to depart from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today, lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end; 15 while it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
16 For some of those that came out of Egypt with Moses, when they had heard, did provoke; howbeit not all. 17 But with whom was he indignant forty years? Was it not with those that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom he swore that they should not enter into his rest, but to those that disobeyed? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of their unbelief.
