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