See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.113
But encourage one another daily,2 as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.314
We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly4 till the end the confidence5 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."a616
Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?717
And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?818
And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest9 if not to those who disobeyedb ?1019
So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.11
