Revised English Version

Hebrews Chapter 3  

1Therefore, holy brothers, partakers of a heavenly calling, think carefully about Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest whom we confess, 2who was faithful to Him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all His house.a 3For he has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, just as he who built the house has more honor than the house. 4For every house is built by someone, but the one who built all things is God. 5And Moses was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things that were to be said later, 6but Christ is faithful as a son over His house, and we are His house if we hold on firmly to our confidence and our boasting in the hope, to the end. 7Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, Today, if you hear his voice, 8do not harden your hearts, as they did in the rebellion, as in the day of the trial in the desert, 9where your fathers put me to the test by trying me out, and saw my works for forty years. 10Therefore, I was disgusted with that generation, and said, “They always go astray in their heart.” Moreover, they did not know my ways, 11so I swore in my wrath, “They will never enter into my rest!b 12See to it, brothers, lest there will be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart leading you to fall away from the living God. 13But exhort one another every day, so long as it is still called “today,” lest any one of you is hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold our original confidence firm to the end. 15As it is said, Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.c 16For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all those who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? 17And with whom was he displeased forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose carcasses lay where they fell in the desert? 18And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19And we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
