for it is thus said concerning the seventh day, "And God rested the seventh day from all his works."

for he that is entered into his rest, hath also himself ceased from his works, as God did from his.



Let us therefore fear least a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of us should seem to fall short of it: for we are graciously offered it, as they also were. But the word, which they heard, did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we who believe shall enter into rest, as He said above, "So I sware in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest:" though the works of creation were finished from the foundation of the world: read more.
for it is thus said concerning the seventh day, "And God rested the seventh day from all his works." And yet in this place, "They shall not enter into my rest." Seeing therefore it remaineth that some are to enter into it, and they to whom it was at first offered did not enter because of their unbelief, He appoints a certain day, called To-day, saying by David so long after, (as it is recorded) "To-day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts." For if Joshua had given them the rest, He would not afterwards have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a rest for the people of God: for he that is entered into his rest, hath also himself ceased from his works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, least any one fall after the same example of unbelief.
