American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, [even] Jesus; 1 Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
2 who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also was Moses in all his house. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God's house.
3 For he hath been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by so much as he that built the house hath more honor than the house. 3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself.
4 For every house is builded by some one; but he that built all things is God. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
5 And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were afterward to be spoken; 5 Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's house, testifying to what would be said in the future.
6 but Christ as a son, over his house; whose house are we, if we hold fast our boldness and the glorying of our hope firm unto the end. 6 But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.
7 Wherefore, even as the Holy Spirit saith, To-day if ye shall hear his voice, 7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you hear his voice,
8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, Like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness, 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert,
9 Where your fathers tried [me] by proving [me,] And saw my works forty years. 9 where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did.
10 Wherefore I was displeased with this generation, And said, They do always err in their heart: But they did not know my ways; 10 That is why I was angry with that generation, and I said, 'Their hearts are always going astray, and they have not known my ways.'
11 As I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest. 11 So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.' "
12 Take heed, brethren, lest haply there shall be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God: 12 See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
13 but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called To-day; lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin: 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
14 for we are become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence firm unto the end: 14 We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
15 while it is said, To-day if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 15 As has just been said: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion."
16 For who, when they heard, did provoke? nay, did not all they that came out of Egypt by Moses? 16 Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
17 And with whom was he displeased forty years? was it not with them that sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 17 And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?
18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that were disobedient? 18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed ?
19 And we see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief. 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
