Hebrews 3
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1For this reason, holy brothers, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and Chief Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus, 2being faithful to Him who appointed Him, as also Moses [was] in all His house. 3For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who builds it has more honor than the house. 4For every house is built by someone, and He who built all things [is] God, 5and Moses [was] indeed steadfast in all His house, as an attendant, for a testimony of those things that were to be spoken— 6but Christ, as a Son over His house, whose house we are, if we hold fast the boldness and the rejoicing of the hope to the end.

7For this reason, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you may hear His voice—

8you may not harden your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of the temptation in the wilderness,

9in which your fathers tempted Me; they proved Me, and saw My works [for] forty years;

10for this reason I was grieved with that generation and said, They always go astray in [their] heart, and these have not known My ways;

11so I swore in My anger, They will [not] enter into My rest.”

12Watch out, brothers, lest there will be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in the falling away from the living God, 13but exhort one another every day, while [it] is called “Today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin, 14for we have become partakers of the Christ, if we may hold fast the confidence [we had] at the beginning to the end,

15as it is said, “Today, if you may hear His voice, you may not harden your hearts, as in the provocation.”

16For who [were those], having heard, [that] provoked, but not all those having come out of Egypt through Moses? 17But with whom was He grieved forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did He swear that they will not enter into His rest, except to those who did not believe? 19And we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
