1 Wherefore, my holy brethren, who have been called with the calling that from heaven, contemplate this Apostle and High Priest of our confession, JESHU MESHIHA!
2 who was faithful to him who made him, as (was) Musha in all his house.
3 For greater is the glory of this (One) by far than (the glory) of Musha, even as the honour of him who built the house is far greater than his building.
4 For every house by some man is builded; but He who built all is Aloha.
5 And Musha, as a servant, was faithful in all his house, for the testimony of those that were to be announced him;
6 but the Meshiha as THE SON over his house: and his house are we, if, unto the end, we shall hold fast our confidence, and the triumph of his hope.
7 Therefore the Spirit of Holiness hath said, to-day if ye will hear his voice,
8 harden not your hearts unto the angering of him, as (did) the embitterers, and as the day of temptation in the desert,
9 when your fathers tempted me, and proved (and) saw my works forty years.
10 On which account I was wearied with that generation; and said, It is a people that doth err (in) their heart, and that hath not known my ways.
11 So that I sware in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest.
12 Beware, therefore, my brethren, lest there be in any man among you an evil heart which believeth not, and ye depart from Aloha the living.
13 But examine yourselves all the days, until the day which is called THAT DAY, lest any one of you be hardened by the deceptiveness of sin.
14 For we are made participators with the Meshiha, if, from the beginning and unto the end, in this very standing we steadfastly persist.
15 As that it is said, To-day, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts to provoke him.
16 For who are they who heard and provoked him? Not all they who came out of Metsreen by the hand of Musha.
17 And with whom was he wearied forty years, but with them who sinned, and whose bones fell in the desert?
18 And of whom did he swear that they should not enter into his rest, but of them who would not be persuaded?
19 And we see that they were not able to enter in, because they did not believe.
