So all of you holy brothers and sisters, who were called by God, think about Jesus, who was sent to us and is the high priest of our faith.
Jesus was faithful to God as Moses was in God's family.
Jesus has more honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself.
Every house is built by someone, but the builder of everything is God himself.
Moses was faithful in God's family as a servant, and he told what God would say in the future.
But Christ is faithful as a Son over God's house. And we are God's house if we keep on being very sure about our great hope.
So it is as the Holy Spirit says: "Today listen to what he says.
Do not be stubborn as in the past when you turned against God, when you tested God in the desert.
There your ancestors tried me and tested me and saw the things I did for forty years.
I was angry with them. I said, 'They are not loyal to me and have not understood my ways.'
I was angry and made a promise, 'They will never enter my rest.'"
So brothers and sisters, be careful that none of you has an evil, unbelieving heart that will turn you away from the living God.
But encourage each other every day while it is "today." Help each other so none of you will become hardened because sin has tricked you.
We all share in Christ if we keep till the end the sure faith we had in the beginning.
This is what the Scripture says: "Today listen to what he says. Do not be stubborn as in the past when you turned against God."
Who heard God's voice and was against him? It was all those people Moses led out of Egypt.
And with whom was God angry for forty years? He was angry with those who sinned, who died in the desert.
And to whom was God talking when he promised that they would never enter his rest? He was talking to those who did not obey him.
So we see they were not allowed to enter and have God's rest, because they did not believe.
