3 Wherefore, aholy brethren, partakers of bthe heavenly ccalling, consider dthe Apostle and eHigh Priest of our fprofession, Christ Jesus; 2 Who was faithful to him that †appointed him, as also gMoses was faithful in all his house. 3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as hhe who hath ibuilded the house hath more honour than the house. 4 For every house is ibuilded by some man; but jhe that ibuilt all things is God. 5 And gMoses verily was kfaithful in all his house, as la servant, mfor a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; 6 But Christ as na son over his own house; owhose house are we, if we phold fast qthe confidence and rthe rejoicing sof the hope firm tunto the end. 7 Wherefore (as uthe Holy Ghost saith, vTo day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 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.
