The Believer's Rest

1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have 1come short of it. 2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but 2the word athey heard did not profit them, because bit was not united by faith in those who heard. 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, "3AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST," although His works were finished 4from the foundation of the world. 4 For He has said 5somewhere concerning the seventh day: "6AND GOD 7RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS "; 5 and again in this passage, "8THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST." 6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of 9disobedience, 7 He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying cthrough David after so long a time just 10as has been said before, "11TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS." 8 For 12if dJoshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also 13rested from his works, as 14God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same 15example of 16disobedience.
