7Therefore, just as 1the HolySpiritsays, "2TODAYIF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE,
83DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS AS aWHEN THEY PROVOKED ME, AS IN THE DAY OF TRIAL IN THE WILDERNESS,
94WHERE YOUR FATHERSTRIED Me BY TESTING Me, AND SAW MY WORKS FOR 5FORTYYEARS.
"6THEREFORE I WAS ANGRY WITH THISGENERATION, AND SAID, 'THEY ALWAYSGOASTRAY IN THEIR HEART, AND THEY DID NOT KNOW MY WAYS ';
117AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, 'THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST.' "
128Takecare, brethren, that there not be in anyone of you an evil, unbelievingheartbthat fallsaway from 9the livingGod.
But 10encourageoneanotherdayafterday, as long as it is still called"Today," so that none of you will be hardened by the 11deceitfulness of sin.
For we have becomepartakers of Christ, 12if we holdfast the beginning of our 13assurancefirmuntil the end,
15while it is said, "14TODAYIF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS, AS cWHEN THEY PROVOKED ME."
For who15provoked Him when they had heard ? Indeed, 16did not allthosewhocame out of Egypt led by Moses ?
And with whom was He angry for fortyyears ? Was it not with thosewhosinned, 17whosebodiesfell in the wilderness ?
And to whom did He swear18that they would not enter His rest, but to thosewho were 19disobedient ?
So we see that they were not able to enterbecause of 20unbelief.
