Hebrews 3

Our Apostle and High Priest

1 Therefore, holy
brother(s): The Greek word adelphoi can be used as a reference to males only or to groups that include males and females. It is the context of each usage that determines the proper meaning.
brothers and companions in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession; b
2He was faithful to the One who appointed Him, just as Moses was in all God’s household. 3 For Jesus is considered worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the builder has more honor than the house. 4Now every house is built by someone, but the One who built everything is God. c 5 Moses was faithful as a servant d in all God’s household, as a testimony to what would be said in the future. 6 But Christ was faithful as a Son over His household. And we are that household if we hold on to the courage and the confidence of our hope.

Warning against Unbelief

7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:

Today, if you hear His voice,
8 do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
9 where your fathers tested Me, tried Me,
and saw My works
10for 40 years.
Therefore I was provoked with that generation
and said, “They always go astray in their hearts,
and they have not known My ways.”
11 So I swore in My anger,
“They will not enter My rest.” g , h

12Watch out, brothers, so that there won’t be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart that departs from the living God. 13 But encourage each other daily, while it is still called today, so that none of you is hardened by sin’s deception. i 14 For we have become companions of the
Messiah: Or the Christ; the Greek word Christos means "the anointed one".
Messiah if we hold firmly until the end the reality
Or confidence
that we had at the start. l
15 As it is said:

Today, if you hear His voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion. m , n

16 For who heard and rebelled? Wasn’t it really all who came out of Egypt under Moses? o 17 And who was He provoked with for 40 years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? p 18 And who did He swear to that they would not enter His rest, if not those who disobeyed? 19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
