Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore, holy brethren, sharers with others in a heavenly invitation, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest whose followers we profess to be. 1 Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
2 How faithful He was to Him who appointed Him, just as Moses also 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 For Jesus has been counted worthy of greater glory than Moses, in so far as he who has built a house has higher honour 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 For every house has had a builder, and the builder of all things is God. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
5 Moreover, Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant in delivering the message given him to speak; 5 Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's house, testifying to what would be said in the future.
6 but Christ was faithful as a Son having authority over God's house, and we are that house, if we hold firm to the End the boldness and the hope which we boast of as ours. 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 For this reason--as the Holy Spirit warns us, "To-day, if you hear His voice, 7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you hear his voice,
8 do not harden your hearts as your forefathers did in the time of the provocation on the day of the temptation in the Desert, 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert,
9 where your forefathers so sorely tried My patience and saw all that I did during forty years. 9 where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did.
10 Therefore I was greatly grieved with that generation, and I said, `They are ever going astray in heart, and have not learnt to know My paths.' 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 swore in My anger, they shall not be admitted to My rest" -- 11 So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.' "
12 see to it, brethren, that there is never in any one of you--as perhaps there may be--a sinful and unbelieving heart, manifesting itself in revolt from the ever-living God. 12 See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
13 On the contrary encourage one another, day after day, so long as To-day lasts, so that not one of you may be hardened through the deceitful character 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, all alike, become sharers with Christ, if we really hold our first confidence firm to the End; 14 We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
15 seeing that the warning still comes to us, "To-day, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as your forefathers did in the time of 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 were they that heard, and yet provoked God? Was it not the whole of the people who had come out of Egypt under the leadership of 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 so greatly grieved for forty years? Was it not with those who had sinned, and whose dead 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 to whom did He swear that they should not be admitted to His rest, if it was not to 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 And so we see that it was owing to lack of faith that they could not be admitted. 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
