Hebrews 4:1-11

Therefore let us fear, [while there] remains a promise of entering into his rest, that none of you appear to fall short of [it]. {For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us}, just as those also [did], but the message {they heard} did not benefit them, [because they] were not united with those who heard [it] in faith. For we who have believed enter into rest, just as he has said, "As I swore in my anger, '{They will never enter} into my rest.'" And yet these works have been accomplished from the foundation of the world. read more.
For he has spoken somewhere about the seventh [day] in this way: "And God rested on the seventh day from all his works," and in this [passage] again, '{They will never enter} into my rest.'" Since therefore it remains [for] some to enter into it, and the ones to whom the good news was proclaimed previously did not enter because of disobedience, again he ordains a certain day, today, speaking by David after so long a time, just as had been said before, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." For if Joshua had caused them to rest, he would not have spoken about another day after these [things]. Consequently a sabbath rest remains for the people of God. For the one who has entered into his rest has also himself rested from his works, just as God [did] from his own [works]. Therefore, let us make every effort to enter into that rest, in order that no one may fall in the same pattern of disobedience.
