3:2. Who is faithful to him that made him, as was also Moses in all his house.
3:3. For this man was counted worthy of greater glory than Moses, by so much as he that hath built the house hath greater honour than the house.
3:4. For every house is built by some man: but he that created all things is God.
3:5. And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be said:
3:6. But Christ, as the Son in his own house: which house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and glory of hope unto the end.
3:7. Wherefore, as the Holy Ghost saith: To-day if you shall hear his voice,
3:8. Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the desert,
3:9. Where your fathers tempted me, proved and saw my works,
3:10. Forty years: for which cause I was offended with this generation, and I said: They always err in heart. And they have not known my ways.
3:11. As I have sworn in my wrath: If they shall enter into my rest.
3:12. Take heed, brethren, lest perhaps there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, to depart from the living God.
3:13. But exhort one another every day, whilst it is called to day, that none of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
3:14. For we are made partakers of Christ: yet so, if we hold the beginning of his substance firm unto the end.
3:15. While it is said: To day, if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in that provocation.
3:16. For some who heard did provoke: but not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
3:17. And with whom was he offended forty years? Was it not with them that sinned, whose carcasses were overthrown in the desert?
3:18. And to whom did he swear, that they should not enter into his rest: but to them that were incredulous?
3:19. And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief.
Hebrews Chapter 4
The Christian's rest. We are to enter into it through Jesus Christ.
4:1. Let us fear therefore lest, the promise being left of entering into his rest, any of you should be thought to be wanting.
4:2. For unto us also it hath been declared in like manner as unto them.
But the word of hearing did not profit them, not being mixed with faith of those things they heard.
4:3. For we, who have believed, shall enter into rest; as he said: As I have sworn in my wrath: If they shall enter into my rest; and this indeed when the works from the foundation of the world were finished.
4:4. For in a certain place he spoke of the seventh day thus: And God rested the seventh day from all his works.
4:5. And in this place again: If they shall enter into my rest.
4:6. Seeing then it remaineth that some are to enter into it, and they to whom it was first preached did not enter because of unbelief:
4:7. Again he limiteth a certain day, saying in David; To day, after so long a time as it is above said: To day if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
4:8. For if Jesus had given them rest he would never have afterwards spoken of another day.
Jesus... Josue, who in Greek is called Jesus.
4:9. There remaineth therefore a day of rest for the people of God.
4:10. For he that is entered into his rest, the same also hath rested from his works, as God did from his.
4:11. Let us hasten therefore to enter into that rest: lest any man fall into the same example of unbelief.
4:12. For the word of God is living and effectual and more piercing than any two edged sword; and reaching unto the division of the soul and the spirit, of the joints also and the marrow: and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
4:13. Neither is there any creature invisible in his sight: but all things are naked and open to his eyes, to whom our speech is.
4:14. Having therefore a great high priest that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God: let us hold fast our confession.
4:15. For we have not a high priest who cannot have compassion on our infirmities: but one tempted in all things like as we are, without sin.
4:16. Let us go therefore with confidence to the throne of grace: that we may obtain mercy and find grace in seasonable aid.
Hebrews Chapter 5
The office of a high priest. Christ is our high priest.
5:1. For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins:
5:2. Who can have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
5:3. And therefore he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.
5:4. Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was.
5:5. So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee.
5:6. As he saith also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.
5:7. Who in the days of his flesh, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for his reverence.
5:8. And whereas indeed he was the Son of God, he learned obedience by the things which he suffered.
5:9. And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation:
5:10. Called by God a high priest, according to the order of Melchisedech.
5:11. Of whom we have much to say and hard to be intelligibly uttered: because you are become weak to hear.
