1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and the High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus:
2 Who was faithful to him who had appointed him, as Moses also was in his whole house.
3 For of greater glory was he counted worthy than Moses, as the builder has greater honor than the house itself
4 Every house is indeed built by some one; but he who has built all things is God.
5 And Moses was indeed faithful in his whole house as a minister, for a testimony to those things which were afterwards to be declared;
6 But Christ as a Son over his own house; whose house we are, if we hold firm the confidence and the glorying of our hope to the end.
7 Therefore (as the Holy Spirit saith, |Today, 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 forty years:
10 I was therefore offended with that generation, and said, They always err in heart, and they have not known my ways;
11 So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest|)
12 See, brethren, that there be not at any time in any of you the wicked heart of unbelief, by departing from the living God:
13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you be hardened through the deception of sin.
14 For we are become partakers of Christ, if indeed we hold firm the beginning of our confidence to the end,
15 since it is said, |Today, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation:|
16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke; but not all who had come out of Egypt by Moses.
17 With whom then was he offended for forty years? was it not with them who had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness
18 And to whom did he swear that they should not enter into his rest, except to the unbelieving?
19 We then see that they could not enter in on account of unbelief.
