Hebrews 3

Wherefore, my holy brethren, who are called with a calling that is from heaven, consider this Legate and High Priest of our profession, Jesus the Messiah: who was faithful to him that made him, as was Moses in all his house. For much greater is the glory of this man, than that of Moses; just as the glory of the builder of a house, is greater than that of the edifice. For every house is built by some man; but he who buildeth all things is God. And Moses, as a servant, was faithful in all the house, for an attestation to those things that were to be spoken by him: but the Messiah as the SON, is over his own house; and we are his house, if we retain unto the end assurance, and the triumph of hope in him. Because the Holy Spirit hath said: To-day, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts to anger him, like the provocators, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness, when your fathers tempted me, and proved, and saw my works forty years. 10 Therefore I was disgusted with that generation, and said: This is a people, whose heart wandereth, and they have not known my ways: 11 so that I swore in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest. 12 Beware, therefore, my brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart that believeth not, and ye depart from the living God. 13 But examine yourselves all the days, during the day which is called to-day; and let none of you be hardened, through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have part with the Messiah, if we persevere in this firm confidence, from the beginning to the end: 15 as it is said, To-day, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, to anger him. 16 But who were they that heard, and angered him? It was not all they, who came out of Egypt under Moses. 17 And with whom was he disgusted forty years, but with those who sinned, and whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? 18 and of whom swore he, that they should not enter into his rest, but of those who believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter, because they believed not.
