3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling,
consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ
3:2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses
[was faithful] in all his house.
3:3 For this [man] was counted worthy of more glory than Moses,
inasmuch as he who hath built the house, hath more honor than
3:4 For every house is built by some [man]; but he that built
all things [is] God.
3:5 And Moses verily [was] faithful in all his house, as a
servant, for a testimony of those things which were
[afterwards] to be spoken.
3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house: whose house are we,
if we hold fast the confidence, and the rejoicing of the hope
firm to the end.
3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Spirit saith, To-day if ye will hear
3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of
temptation in the wilderness:
3:9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works
3:10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said,
They do always err in [their] heart; and they have not known my
3:11 So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil
heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
3:13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To-day;
lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the
beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end;
3:15 While it is said, To-day if ye will hear his voice, harden
not your hearts, as in the provocation.
3:16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: yet, not all
that came out of Egypt by Moses.
3:17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? [was it] not with
them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?
3:18 And to whom did he swear that they should not enter into
his rest, but to them that believed not?
3:19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
