Hebrews 41 Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem a to have failed to reach it. 2 For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because b they were not united by faith with those who listened. ▼
▼ Some manuscripts it did not meet with faith in the hearers3 For we who have believed enter that rest, as he has said, d “As I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall not enter my rest,’”
although his works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: e “And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.” 5 And again in this passage he said, f “They shall not enter my rest.”
6 Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news g failed to enter because of disobedience, 7 again he appoints a certain day, “Today,” saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted, h “Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts.”
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God ▼
▼ Greek hewould not have spoken of another day later on. 9 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, 10 for whoever has entered God’s rest has also j rested from his works as God did from his. 11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so k that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 12 For l the word of God is living and m active n sharper than any o two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and p discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And q no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are r naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Jesus the Great High Priest14 Since then we have s a great high priest t who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God u let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest v who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been w tempted as we are x yet without sin. 16 y Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
