Let usthereforefear , lest, a promise being left us of enteringintohisrest,anyofyou should seem to come short of it .
2Forunto us was the gospel preached , as well as unto them:but the wordapreacheddidnotprofitthem,not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
3For we which have believed do enterintorest,as he said , As I have sworninmywrath,if they shall enterintomyrest:although the works were finishedfrom the foundation of the world.4For he spake in a certain placeof the seventh day on this wise,AndGod did rest the seventhdayfromallhisworks.5Andinthis place again,If they shall enterintomyrest.6Seeingtherefore it remaineth that some must entertherein , and they to whom it was firstpreachedenterednotinbecause of unbelief:7Again, he limiteth a certainday,sayinginDavid, To day,after so long a time;as it is said , To dayif ye will hearhisvoice,hardennotyourhearts.8ForifJesusb had giventhemrest , then would henotafterwardhavespokenofanotherday.9
There remaineththerefore a restc to the people of God.10For he that is enteredintohisrest,healso hath ceasedfrom his ownworks,asGod did fromhis.11
Let us labourtherefore to enterintothatrest,lest any manfallafter the sameexample of unbelief.d
