We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly1 till the end the confidence2 we had at first.
As has just been said: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion."a316
Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?417
And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?518
And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest6 if not to those who disobeyedb ?719
So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.8
