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. 2 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. 3 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. 4 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. 5 And in this place again, fIf they shall enter into my rest. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and cthey to whom ||it was first preached ientered not in because of unbelief: 7 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. 8 For if ||Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 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. 12 For qthe word of God is rquick, and powerful, and ssharper than any ttwoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of usoul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is va discerner of the thoughts and wintents of the heart. 13 xNeither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are ynaked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
14 Seeing then that we have a great zhigh priest, athat is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, blet us hold fast our cprofession. 15 For dwe have not zan high priest ewhich cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was fin all points gtempted like as we are, yet hwithout sin. 16 iLet us therefore come jboldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and kfind grace to help in time of need.
