1 Therefore, a promise being left to enter into His rest, let us fear lest any of you should seem to come short of it.
2 For also we have had the gospel preached, as well as them. But the word [preached] did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard [it].
3 For we who have believed do enter into the rest, as He said, I have sworn in My wrath that they should not enter into My rest; although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
4 For He spoke in a certain place of the seventh [day] in this way: And God rested the seventh day from all His works.
5 And in this place again, They shall not enter into My rest.
6 Since then it remains that some must enter into it, and since they to whom it was first preached did not enter in because of unbelief,
7 He again marks out a certain day, saying in David, Today, (after so long a time). Even as it is said, Today, if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day.
9 So then there remains a rest to the people of God.
10 For he who has entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God [did] from His.
11 Therefore let us labor to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of unbelief.
12 For the word of God [is] living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to [the] dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things [are] naked and opened to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
14 Since then we have a great High Priest who has passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast [our] profession.
15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted just as [we are, yet] without sin.
16 Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
