Hebrews 4

1Let vs feare therefore, least at any time by forsaking the promise of entring into his rest, any of you should seeme to be depriued.

2For vnto vs was the Gospel preached as also vnto them: but the worde that they heard, profited not them, because it was not mixed with faith in those that heard it.

3For we which haue beleeued, doe enter into rest, as he said to the other, As I haue sworne in my wrath, If they shall enter into my rest: although the workes were finished from the foundation of the world.

4For he spake in a certaine place of the seuenth day on this wise, And God did rest the seuenth day from all his workes.

5And in this place againe, If they shall enter into my rest.

6Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entred not therein for vnbeliefes sake:

7Againe he appointed in Dauid a certaine day, by To day, after so long a time, saying, as it is sayd, This day, if ye heare his voyce, harden not your hearts.

8For if Iesus had giuen them rest, then would he not after this haue spoke of an other day.

9There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

10For he that is entred into his rest, hath also ceased from his owne works, as God did from his.

11Let vs studie therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same ensample of disobedience.

12For the worde of God is liuely, and mightie in operation, and sharper then any two edged sword, and entreth through, euen vnto the diuiding asunder of the soule and the spirit, and of the ioints, and the marow, and is a discerner of the thoughtes, and the intents of the heart.

13Neither is there any creature, which is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and open vnto his eyes, with whome we haue to doe.

14Seeing then that wee haue a great hie Priest, which is entred into heauen, euen Iesus the Sonne of God, let vs holde fast our profession.

15For we haue not an hie Priest, which can not be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all things tempted in like sort, yet without sinne.

16Let vs therefore goe boldly vnto ye throne of grace, that we may receiue mercy, and finde grace to helpe in time of neede.
