Hebrews 3

Jesus Our High Priest

1Therefore a  holy brethren, partakers of a b  heavenly calling, consider Jesus c  the Apostle and d  High Priest of our e  confession; 2
Lit Being faithful
He was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as g  Moses also was in all His house.
3 h  For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house. 4For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 5Now i  Moses was faithful in all His house as j  a servant k  for a testimony of those things l  which were to be spoken later; 6but Christ was faithful as m  a Son over His housen  whose house we are, o  if we hold fast our p  confidence and the boast of our q  hope firm until the end.

7Therefore, just as r  the Holy Spirit says, s  Today if you hear His voice,
8 t  Do not harden your hearts as
Lit in the provocation
when they provoked Me,
As in the day of trial in the wilderness,
9 v  Where your fathers tried Me by testing Me,
And saw My works for w  forty years.
10 x  Therefore I was angry with this generation,
And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart,
And they did not know My ways’;
11 y  As I swore in My wrath,
They shall not enter My rest.’”

The Peril of Unbelief

12 z  Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart
Lit in falling
that falls away from ab  the living God.
13But ac  encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still calledToday,” so that none of you will be hardened by the ad  deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have become partakers of Christ ae  if we hold fast the beginning of our af  assurance firm until the end, 15while it is said, ag  Today if you hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts, as
Lit in the rebellion
when they provoked Me.”

16For who ai  provoked Him when they had heard? Indeed aj  did not all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses? 17And with whom was He angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned ak  whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did He swear al  that they would not enter His rest, but to those who were am  disobedient? 19So we see that they were not able to enter because of an  unbelief.
