Hebrews 4

The Believer's Rest

1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have 1come short of it.
2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but 2the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard.
3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, "3AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST," although His works were finished 4from the foundation of the world.
4 For He has said 5somewhere concerning the seventh day: "6AND GOD 7RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS ";
5 and again in this passage, "8THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST."
7 He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying through David after so long a time just 10as has been said before, "11TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS."
8 For 12if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that.
9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.
10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also 13rested from his works, as 14God did from His.
11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so * that no one will fall, through following the same 15example of 16disobedience.
12 For 17the word of God is 18living and 19active and sharper than any two-edged 20sword, and piercing as far as the division of 21soul and 22spirit, of both joints and marrow, and 23able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
13 And 24there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are 25open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
14 Therefore, since we have a great 26high priest who has 27passed through the heavens, Jesus 28the Son of God, let us hold fast our 29confession.
15 For we do not have 30a high priest who cannot * sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been 31tempted in all things as we are, yet 32without sin.
16 Therefore let us 33draw near with 34confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
