1: Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the apostle and chief priest of our profession, Christ Jesus, 2: being stedfast to Him who did appoint him, as also Moses in all his house, 3: for of more glory than Moses hath this one been counted worthy, inasmuch as more honour than the house hath he who doth build it, 4: for every house is builded by some one, and He who the all things did build [is] God, 5: and Moses indeed [was] stedfast in all his house, as an attendant, for a testimony of those things that were to be spoken, 6: and Christ, as a Son over his house, whose house are we, if the boldness and the rejoicing of the hope unto the end we hold fast. 7: Wherefore, (as the Holy Spirit saith, 'To-day, if His voice ye may hear -- 8: ye may not harden your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of the temptation in the wilderness, 9: in which tempt Me did your fathers, they did prove Me, and saw My works forty years; 10: wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, Always do they go astray in heart, and these have not known My ways; 11: so I sware in My anger, If they shall enter into My rest -- !') 12: See, brethren, lest there shall be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in the falling away from the living God, 13: but exhort ye one another every day, while the To-day is called, that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of the sin, 14: for partakers we have become of the Christ, if the beginning of the confidence unto the end we may hold fast, 15: in its being said, 'To-day, if His voice ye may hear, ye may not harden your hearts, as in the provocation,' 16: for certain having heard did provoke, but not all who did come out of Egypt through Moses; 17: but with whom was He grieved forty years? was it not with those who did sin, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? 18: and to whom did He swear that they shall not enter into His rest, except to those who did not believe? -- 19: and we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
