1 Let us fear, therefore, lest any of us forsaking the promise of entering into his rest, should seem to come behind.
1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it.
1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
1 Therefore, as long as the promise of entering his rest remains valid, let us be afraid! Otherwise, some of you will fail to reach it,
2 For unto us was it declared, as well as unto them. But it profited not them that they heard the word, because they which heard it coupled it not with faith.
2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard.
2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
2 because we have had the good news told to us as well as to them. But the message they heard did not help them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened to it.
3 But we which have believed, do enter into his rest, as contrariwise he said to the other, "As I have sworn in my wrath, 'They shall not enter into my rest.'" And that spake he verily long after that the works were made, and the foundation of the world laid.
3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, "AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST," although His works were finished from the foundation of the world.
3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
3 (for we who have believed enter the rest), in keeping with what(c) He has said:So I swore in My anger,they will not enter My rest.(B)(d)And yet His works have been finished since the foundation of the world,
3 We who have believed are entering that rest, just as he has said, "So in my anger I swore a solemn oath that they would never enter my rest,"
4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day, on this wise, "And God did rest the seventh day from all his works."
4 For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: "AND GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS";
4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
4 even though his actions had been finished since the creation of the world. Somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day as follows: "On the seventh day God rested from all his actions,"
5 And in this place again, "They shall not come into my rest."
5 and again in this passage, "THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST."
5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
5 and again in this passage, "They will never enter my rest."
6 Seeing therefore it followeth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entered not therein for unbelief's sake.
6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience,
6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
6 Therefore, since it is still true that some will enter it, and since those who once heard the good news failed to enter it because of their disobedience,
7 Again he appointeth in David a certain present day after so long a time, saying as it is rehearsed, "This day if ye hear his voice, be not hard hearted."
7 He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, "TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS."
7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
7 he again fixes a definite day "Today" - saying long afterward through David, as already quoted, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts."
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that.
8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, he would not have spoken later about another day.
9 There remaineth therefore yet a rest to the people of God.
9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.
9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
9 Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people.
9 There remains, therefore, a Sabbath rest for the people of God to keep,
10 For he that is entered into his rest doth cease from his own works, as God did from his.
10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.
10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
10 because the one who enters God's rest has himself rested from his own actions, just as God did from his.
11 Let us study therefore to enter into that rest; lest any man fall, after the same example, into unbelief:
11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience.
11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
11 Let us then make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.
11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one may fail by following their example of disobedience.
12 for the word of God is quick, and mighty in operation, and sharper than any two edged sword: and entereth through, even unto the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit and of the joints, and the marrow: and judgeth the thoughts and the intents of the heart.
12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
12 For the word of God is living and effective(H) and sharper than any double-edged sword,(I) penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart.(J)
12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow, as it judges the thoughts and purposes of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature invisible in the sight of it. For all things are naked and bare unto the eyes of him, of whom we speak.
13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
13 No creature can hide from him, but everyone is exposed and helpless before the eyes of the one to whom we must give a word of explanation.
14 Seeing, then, that we have a great high priest which is entered into heaven - I mean Jesus the son of God - let us hold our profession.
14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone to heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us live our lives consistent with our confession of faith.
15 For we have not a high priest, which cannot have compassion on our infirmities: but was in all points tempted, as we are: but yet without sin.
15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses. Instead, we have one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet he never sinned.
16 Let us therefore go boldly unto the seat of grace, that we may receive mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
