Hebrews 3

Jesus Greater Than Moses

1Therefore, holy brothers,
Or  brothers and sisters; also verse 12
you who share in ba heavenly calling, consider Jesus, cthe apostle and high priest of our confession,
2who was faithful to him who appointed him, djust as Moses also was faithful in all God’s
Greek his; also verses 5, 6
3For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Mosesas much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4(For every house is built by someone, but fthe builder of all things is God.) 5 gNow Moses was faithful in all God’s house has a servant, ito testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6but Christ is faithful over God’s house as ja son. And kwe are his house, if indeed we lhold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.

A Rest for the People of God

7Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

nToday, if you hear his voice,
8do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
9where your fathers put me to the test
and saw my works for oforty years.
10Therefore I was provoked with that generation,
and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;
they have not known my ways.’
11 pAs I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall not enter my rest.’”
12Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from qthe living God. 13But rexhort one another every day, as long as it is calledtoday,” that none of you may be hardened by sthe deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have come to share in Christ, tif indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. 15As it is said,

uToday, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
16For vwho were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not wall those who left Egypt led by Moses? 17And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, xwhose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did he swear that ythey would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19So we see that zthey were unable to enter because of unbelief.
