American Standard Version
Hebrews, Chapter 3

   1: Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, [even] Jesus;
   2: who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also was Moses in all his house.
   3: For he hath been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by so much as he that built the house hath more honor than the house.
   4: For every house is builded by some one; but he that built all things is God.
   5: And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were afterward to be spoken;
   6: but Christ as a son, over his house; whose house are we, if we hold fast our boldness and the glorying of our hope firm unto the end.
   7: Wherefore, even as the Holy Spirit saith, To-day if ye shall hear his voice,
   8: Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, Like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness,
   9: Where your fathers tried [me] by proving [me,] And saw my works forty years.
   10: Wherefore I was displeased with this generation, And said, They do always err in their heart: But they did not know my ways;
   11: As I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.
   12: Take heed, brethren, lest haply there shall be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God:
   13: but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called To-day; lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin:
   14: for we are become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence firm unto the end:
   15: while it is said, To-day if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
   16: For who, when they heard, did provoke? nay, did not all they that came out of Egypt by Moses?
   17: And with whom was he displeased forty years? was it not with them that sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
   18: And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that were disobedient?
   19: And we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
