Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore, brothers whom God has set apart, who share in the call from heaven, think carefully about Yeshua, whom we acknowledge publicly as God's emissary and as cohen gadol. 1 Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
2 He was faithful to God, who appointed him; just as "Moshe was faithful in all 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 Yeshua deserves more honor than Moshe, just as the builder of the house deserves 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 built by someone, but the one who built everything is God. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
5 Also, Moshe was faithful in all God's house, as a servant giving witness to things God would divulge later. 5 Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's house, testifying to what would be said in the future.
6 But the Messiah, as Son, was faithful over God's house. And we are that house of his, provided we hold firmly to the courage and confidence inspired by what we hope for. 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 Therefore, as the Ruach HaKodesh says, "Today, if you hear God's voice, 7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you hear his voice,
8 don't harden your hearts, as you did in the Bitter Quarrel on that day in the Wilderness when you put God to the test. 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert,
9 Yes, your fathers put me to the test; they challenged me, and they saw my work for forty years! 9 where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did.
10 Therefore, I was disgusted with that generation I said, 'Their hearts are always going astray, they have not understood how I do things'; 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 in my anger, I swore that they would not enter my rest." 11 So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.' "
12 Watch out, brothers, so that there will not be in any one of you an evil heart lacking trust, which could lead you to apostatize 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 Instead, keep exhorting each other every day, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you will become hardened by the deceit 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 have become sharers in the Messiah, provided, however, that we hold firmly to the conviction we began with, right through until the goal is reached. 14 We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
15 Now where it says, "Today, if you hear God's voice, don't harden your hearts, as you did in the Bitter Quarrel," 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 were the people who, after they heard, quarreled so bitterly? All those whom Moshe brought out of Egypt. 16 Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
17 And with whom was God disgusted for forty years? Those who sinned - yes, they fell dead 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 was it that he swore that they would not enter his rest? Those who were disobedient. 18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed ?
19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of lack of trust. 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
