Therefore, holy brothers,a you who share in 1a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, 2the apostle and high priest of our confession,
who was faithful to him who appointed him, 3just as Moses also was faithful in all God'sb house.
For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses--as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself.
(For every house is built by someone, but 4the builder of all things is God.)
55Now Moses was faithful in all God's house 6as a servant, 7to testify to the things that were to be spoken later,
but Christ is faithful over God's house as 8a son. And 9we are his house if indeed we 10hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.c
Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, 11"Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness,
where your fathers put me to the test and saw my works for 12forty years.
Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, 'They always go astray in their heart; they have not known my ways.'
1113As I swore in my wrath, 'They shall not enter my rest.'"
Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from 14the living God.
But 15exhort one another every day, as long as it is called "today," that none of you may be hardened by 16the deceitfulness of sin.
For we have come to share in Christ, 17if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.
As it is said, 18"Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."
For 19who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not 20all those who left Egypt led by Moses?
And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, 21whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
And to whom did he swear that 22they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient?
So we see that 23they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
