Hebrews 3

ESV 1 Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, MSG 1 So, my dear Christian friends, companions in following this call to the heights, take a good hard look at Jesus. He's the centerpiece of everything we believe, ESV 2 who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house. MSG 2 faithful in everything God gave him to do. Moses was also faithful, ESV 3 For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses--as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. MSG 3 but Jesus gets far more honor. A builder is more valuable than a building any day. ESV 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) MSG 4 Every house has a builder, but the Builder behind them all is God. ESV 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, MSG 5 Moses did a good job in God's house, but it was all servant work, getting things ready for what was to come. ESV 6 but Christ is faithful over God's house as a son. And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope. MSG 6 Christ as Son is in charge of the house. ESV 7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, "Today, if you hear his voice, MSG 7 That's why the Holy Spirit says, Today, please listen; ESV 8 do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, MSG 8 don't turn a deaf ear as in "the bitter uprising," that time of wilderness testing! ESV 9 where your fathers put me to the test and saw my works for forty years. MSG 9 Even though they watched me at work for forty years, your ancestors refused to let me do it my way; over and over they tried my patience. ESV 10 Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, 'They always go astray in their heart; they have not known my ways.' MSG 10 And I was provoked, oh, so provoked! I said, "They'll never keep their minds on God; they refuse to walk down my road." ESV 11 As I swore in my wrath, 'They shall not enter my rest.'" MSG 11 Exasperated, I vowed, "They'll never get where they're going, never be able to sit down and rest." ESV 12 Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. MSG 12 So watch your step, friends. Make sure there's no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. ESV 13 But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called "today," that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. MSG 13 For as long as it's still God's Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn't slow down your reflexes. ESV 14 For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. MSG 14 If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we're in this with Christ for the long haul. ESV 15 As it is said, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." MSG 15 These words keep ringing in our ears: Today, please listen; don't turn a deaf ear as in the bitter uprising. ESV 16 For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses? MSG 16 For who were the people who turned a deaf ear? Weren't they the very ones Moses led out of Egypt? ESV 17 And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? MSG 17 And who was God provoked with for forty years? Wasn't it those who turned a deaf ear and ended up corpses in the wilderness? ESV 18 And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? MSG 18 And when he swore that they'd never get where they were going, wasn't he talking to the ones who turned a deaf ear? ESV 19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief. MSG 19 They never got there because they never listened, never believed.
