Hebrews 3
New King James VersionInternational Standard Version
1Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,1Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.
2who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all His house.2He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was in all God's household,
3For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house.3because he is worthy of greater glory than Moses in the same way that the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself.
4For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.4After all, every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
5And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward,5Moses was faithful in all God's household as a servant who was to testify to what would be said later,
6but Christ 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.6but the Messiah was faithful as the Son in charge of God's household, and we are his household if we hold on to our courage and the hope in which we rejoice.
7Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice,7Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, "Today, if you hear his voice,
8Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness,8do not harden your hearts as they did when they provoked me during the time of testing in the wilderness.
9Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years.9There your ancestors tested me, even though they had seen my actions
10Therefore I was angry with that generation, And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, And they have not known My ways.’10for 40 years. That is why I was indignant with that generation and said, 'They are always going astray in their hearts, and they have not known my ways.'
11So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”11So in my anger I swore a solemn oath that they would never enter my rest."
12Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;12See to it, my brothers, that no evil, unbelieving heart is found in any of you, as shown by your turning away from the living God.
13but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.13Instead, continue to encourage one another every day, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin,
14For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,14because we are the Messiah's partners only if we hold on to our original confidence to the end.
15while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”15As it is said, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as they did when they provoked me."
16For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses?16Now who heard him and provoked him? Was it not all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses?
17Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness?17And with whom was he angry for 40 years? Was it not with those who sinned and whose bodies fell dead in the wilderness?
18And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?18And to whom did he swear that they would never enter his rest? It was to those who disobeyed him, was it not?
19So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.19So we see that they were unable to enter because of their unbelief.
