Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore let us fear, [while there] remains a promise of entering into his rest, that none of you appear to fall short of [it]. 1 Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it.
2 {For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us}, just as those also [did], but the message {they heard} did not benefit them, [because they] were not united with those who heard [it] in faith. 2 For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith.
3 For we who have believed enter into rest, just as he has said, "As I swore in my anger, '{They will never enter} into my rest.'" And yet these works have been accomplished from the foundation of the world. 3 Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, "So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.' " And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world.
4 For he has spoken somewhere about the seventh [day] in this way: "And God rested on the seventh day from all his works," 4 For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: "And on the seventh day God rested from all his work."
5 and in this [passage] again, '{They will never enter} into my rest.'" 5 And again in the passage above he says, "They shall never enter my rest."
6 Since therefore it remains [for] some to enter into it, and the ones to whom the good news was proclaimed previously did not enter because of disobedience, 6 It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience.
7 again he ordains a certain day, today, speaking by David after so long a time, just as had been said before, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." 7 Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts."
8 For if Joshua had caused them to rest, he would not have spoken about another day after these [things]. 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day.
9 Consequently a sabbath rest remains for the people of God. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;
10 For the one who has entered into his rest has also himself rested from his works, just as God [did] from his own [works]. 10 for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.
11 Therefore, let us make every effort to enter into that rest, in order that no one may fall in the same pattern of disobedience. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience.
12 For the word of God [is] living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, both joints and marrow, and able to judge the reflections and thoughts of the heart. 12 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
13 And no creature is hidden in the sight of him, but all [things are] naked and laid bare to the eyes of him to whom {we must give our account}. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
14 Therefore, [because we] have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession. 14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
15 For we do not have a high priest who is not able to sympathize with our weaknesses, but who has been tempted in all [things] in the same way, without sin. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin.
16 Therefore let us approach with confidence to the throne of grace, in order that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. 16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
