The Believer’s Rest1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have a come short of it. 2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but b the word ▼
▼ Lit of hearingthey heard did not profit them, because ▼
▼ Two early mss read they were...faith with those who heardit was not united by faith in those who heard. 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, e “As I swore in My wrath,
They shall not enter My rest,”
although His works were finished f from the foundation of the world.
4 For He has said g somewhere concerning the seventh day: h “And God i rested on the seventh day from all His works”; 5 and again in this passage j “They shall not enter My rest.” 6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of k disobedience, 7 He again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying ▼
▼ Or inthrough David after so long a time just m as has been said before, n “Today if you hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”
8 For o if ▼
▼ Gr JesusJoshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also q rested from his works, as r God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same s example of t disobedience. 12 For u the word of God is v living and w active and sharper than any two-edged x sword, and piercing as far as the division of y soul and z spirit, of both joints and marrow, and aa able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And ab there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are ac open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. 14 Therefore, since we have a great ad high priest who has ae passed through the heavens, Jesus af the Son of God, let us hold fast our ag confession. 15 For we do not have ah a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been ai tempted in all things as we are, yet aj without sin. 16 Therefore let us ak draw near with al confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
