was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses also "was faithful in all a God's b house."
Yet Jesus c is worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself.
(For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.)
Now Moses was faithful in all God's d house as a servant, to testify to the things that would be spoken later.
Christ, however, was faithful over God's e house as a son, and we are his house if we hold firm f the confidence and the pride that belong to hope.
Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, "Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, as on the day of testing in the wilderness,
where your ancestors put me to the test, though they had seen my works
for forty years. Therefore I was angry with that generation, and I said, "They always go astray in their hearts, and they have not known my ways.'
As in my anger I swore, "They will not enter my rest.' "
Take care, brothers and sisters, g that none of you may have an evil, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
