Hebrews 3
New King James VersionNew International Version
1Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,1Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.
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 faithful in all God's house.
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.3Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as 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.4For 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,5"Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's house," bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future.
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 Christ is faithful as the Son over God's house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.
7Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice,7So, 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 you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness,
9Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years.9where your ancestors tested and tried me, though for forty years they saw what I did.
10Therefore I was angry with that generation, And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, And they have not known My ways.’10That is why I was angry with that generation; I said, 'Their hearts are always going astray, and they have not known my ways.'
11So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”11So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall 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, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns 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.13But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
14For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,14We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end.
15while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”15As has just been said: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion."
16For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses?16Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
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 forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished 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 God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed?
19So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.19So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
