Hebrews 4:2-12 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also ; but 1the 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, "2AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST," although His works were finished 3from the foundation of the world. 4 For He has said 4somewhere concerning the seventh day: "5AND GOD 6RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS "; 5 and again in this passage, "7THEY 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 8disobedience, 7 He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying cthrough David after so long a time just 9as has been said before, "10TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS." 8 For 11if 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 12rested from his works, as 13God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same 14example of 15disobedience. 12 For 16the word of God is 17living and 18active and sharper than any two-edged 19sword, and piercing as far as the division of 20soul and 21spirit, of both joints and marrow, and 22able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
