1Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, evenJesus; 2who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also was Moses in all his house. 3For he hath been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by so much as he that built the house hath more honour than the house. 4For every house is builded by some one; but he that built all things is God. 5And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were afterward to be spoken; 6but Christ as a son, over his house; whose house are we, if we hold fast our boldness and the glorying of our hope firm unto the end. 7Wherefore, even as the Holy Ghost saith, Today if ye shall hear his voice, 8Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, Like as in the day of the temptation in the wilderness, 9Wherewith your fathers tempted meby proving me, And saw my works forty years. 10Wherefore I was displeased with this generation, And said, They do alway err in their heart: But they did not know my ways; 11As I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest. 12Take heed, brethren, lest haply there shall be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God: 13but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called Today; lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin: 14for we are become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence firm unto the end: 15while it is said, Today if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16For who, when they heard, did provoke? nay, did not all they that came out of Egypt by Moses? 17And with whom was he displeased forty years? was it not with them that sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that were disobedient? 19And we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
