Hebrews 3:7–4:11

Wherefore (as uthe Holy Ghost saith, vTo day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works wforty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 xSo I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)

12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from ythe living God. 13 But zexhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened athrough the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we bhold the beginning of our cconfidence bstedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, dTo day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16 For esome, when they had heard, did fprovoke: howbeit gnot all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, hwhose icarcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And kto whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that lbelieved not? 19 So we see that mthey could not enter in because of nunbelief.

4 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you ashould seem bto come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as cunto them: but the word preached did not profit them, ||dnot being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as ehe said, fAs I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished gfrom the foundation of the world. For ehe spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, hAnd God did rest the seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, fIf they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and cthey to whom ||it was first preached ientered not in because of unbelief: Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying kin David, lTo day, after so long a time; as it is said, lTo day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if ||Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a ||rest to the people of God. 10 For mhe that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall nafter the same oexample of ||punbelief.
