1 Therefore, holy brothers, called [to be] partakers of the heavenly [calling], consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus,
2 who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also [was faithful] in all his house.
3 For He was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, because he who has built the house has more honor than the house.
4 For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things [is] God.
5 And Moses truly [was] faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken afterward.
6 But Christ [was faithful] as a Son over his own house; whose house we are, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.
7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, Today if you will hear His voice,
8 do not harden 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 forty years.
10 Therefore I was grieved with that generation and said, They always err in [their] heart, and they have not known My ways.
11 So I swore in My wrath, They shall not enter into My rest.
12 Take heed, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from [the] living God.
13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you be hardened through [the] deceitfulness of sin.
14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to [the] end,
15 while it is said, Today if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke; however, not all who came out of Egypt by Moses.
17 But with whom was He grieved forty years? [Was it] not with those who had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?
18 And to whom did He swear [that they should] not enter into His rest, but to those who did not believe?
19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
