Hebrews 3
Berean Literal Bible

Jesus Our Apostle and High Priest

1Therefore, holy brothers, partakers of the heavenly calling, carefully consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2being faithful to the One having appointed Him, as Moses also in all His house.

3For He has been counted worthy of greater glory than Moses, by so much as the one having built it has greater honor than the house itself. 4For every house is built by someone, but the One having built everything is God.

5And indeed Moses was faithful as a servant in all His house,a unto a testimony of the things going to be spoken, 6but Christ as the Son over His house, whose house we are, if indeed we should holdb our confidence and the boast of our hope.

Do Not Harden Your Hearts

7Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says:

“Today if you should hear His voice,

8do not harden your hearts,

as in the rebellion,

in the day of testing in the wilderness,

9where forty years your fathers tried Me by testing

and saw My works.

10Therefore I was angry with that generation,

and I said,

‘Always they go astray in their heart;

and they have not known My ways;’

11so I swore in My wrath,

‘They shall not enter into My rest.’”c

The Peril of Unbelief

12Take heed, brothers, lest ever there will be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, into falling away from the living God. 13But encourage one another every day, while it is called today, so that not one of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

14For we have become partakers of Christ, if indeed we should hold firm unto the end the assurance from the beginning. 15As it is said:

“Today if you should hear His voice,

do not harden your hearts,

as in the rebellion.”d

16For who were those having heard, rebelled, but not all those having come out of Egypt by the leading of Moses? 17And with whom was He indignant forty years, if not with those having sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did He swear that they shall not enter into His rest, if not to those having disobeyed? 19And we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.

a 5 Numbers 12:7
b 6 NE, WH, BYZ, and TR include firmly to the end
c 7-11 Psalm 95:7-11
d 15 Psalm 95:7,8
