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