The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left [us] of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come 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 to us was the gospel preached, as well as to them: but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard [it]. 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 do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished 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 spoke in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God rested 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 [place] again, If they shall enter into my rest. 5 And again in the passage above he says, "They shall never enter my rest."
6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter into it, and they to whom it was first preached entered not because of unbelief: 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 limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To-day, after so long a time; as it is said, To-day, if ye will hear his voice, harden not 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 Jesus had given them rest, then he would not afterward have spoken of another day. 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day.
9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;
10 For he that hath entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his.) 10 for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.
11 Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. 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 powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents 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 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things [are] naked and opened to the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 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 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast [our] profession. 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 have not a high priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but who was in all points tempted as [we are], [yet] 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 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain 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.
