Hebrews 31For this reason, holy brothers, marked out to have a part in heaven, give thought to Jesus the representative and high priest of our faith; 2Who kept faith with God who gave him his place, even as Moses did in all his house. 3And it was right for this man to have more honour than Moses, even as the builder of a house has more honour than the house. 4For every house has a builder; but the builder of all things is God. 5And Moses certainly kept faith as a servant, in all his house, and as a witness of those things which were to be said later; 6But Christ as a son, over his house; whose house are we, if we keep our hearts fixed in the glad and certain hope till the end. 7And so, as the Holy Spirit says, Today if you let his voice come to your ears, 8Be not hard of heart, as when you made me angry, on the day of testing in the waste land, 9When your fathers put me to the test, and saw my works for forty years. 10So that I was angry with this generation, and I said, Their hearts are in error at all times, and they have no knowledge of my ways; 11And being angry I made an oath, saying, They may not come into my rest. 12My brothers, take care that there is not by chance in any one of you an evil heart without belief, turning away from the living God: 13But give comfort to one another every day as long as it is still Today; so that no one among you may be made hard by the deceit of sin: 14For if we keep the substance of the faith which we had at the start, even till the end, we have a part with Christ; 15As it is said, Today if you will let his voice come to your ears, be not hard of heart, as when you made him angry. 16Who made him angry when his voice came to them? was it not all those who came out of Egypt with Moses? 17And with whom was he angry for forty years? was it not with those who did evil, who came to their deaths in the waste land? 18And to whom did he make an oath that they might not come into his rest? was it not to those who went against his orders? 19So we see that they were not able to go in because they had no belief.
