Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore, brothers and sisters who are partners in the heavenly calling, think about Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession. 1 Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
2 Jesus was faithful to the one who appointed him just like Moses was faithful in God's house. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God's house.
3 But he deserves greater glory than Moses in the same way that the builder of the house deserves more honor than the house itself. 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 Every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
5 Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant in order to affirm the things that would be spoken later. 5 Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's house, testifying to what would be said in the future.
6 But Jesus was faithful over God's house as a Son. We are his house if we hold on to the confidence and the pride that our hope gives us. 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 So, as the Holy Spirit says, Today, if you hear his voice, 7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you hear his voice,
8 don't have stubborn hearts as they did in the rebellion, on the day when they tested me in the desert. 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert,
9 That is where your ancestors challenged and tested me, though they had seen my work for forty years. 9 where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did.
10 So I was angry with them. I said, "Their hearts always go off course, and they don't 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 Because of my anger I swore: "They will never enter my rest!" 11 So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.' "
12 Watch out, brothers and sisters, so that none of you have an evil, unfaithful heart that abandons 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 Instead, encourage each other every day, as long as it's called "today," so that none of you become insensitive to God because of sin's deception. 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 We are partners with Christ, but only if we hold on to the confidence we had in the beginning until the end. 14 We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
15 When it says, Today, if you hear his voice, don't have stubborn hearts as they did in the rebellion. 15 As has just been said: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion."
16 Who was it who rebelled when they heard his voice? Wasn't it all of those who were brought 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 God angry for forty years? Wasn't it with the ones who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert? 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 against whom did he swear that they would never enter his rest, if not against the ones who were disobedient? 18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed ?
19 We see that they couldn't enter because of their lack of faith. 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
