Hebrews 4:6 Meaning and Commentary

Hebrews 4:6

Seeing therefore it remaineth
It follows by just consequence,

that some must enter therein;
for God's swearing concerning some, that they should not enter into his rest, supposes that others should: and

they to whom it was first preached;
to whom the Gospel was first preached, namely, the Israelites in the wilderness: entered not in because of unbelief; See ( Hebrews 3:19 ) .

Hebrews 4:6 In-Context

4 For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: "AND GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS ";
5 and again in this passage, "THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST."
6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience,
7 He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, "TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS."
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that.
