Hebrews 4

CEB 1 Therefore, since the promise that we can enter into rest is still open, let's be careful so that none of you will appear to miss it. NRS 1 Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest is still open, let us take care that none of you should seem to have failed to reach it. CEB 2 We also had the good news preached to us, just as the Israelites did. However, the message they heard didn't help them because they weren't united in faith with the ones who listened to it. NRS 2 For indeed the good news came to us just as to them; but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened. CEB 3 We who have faith are entering the rest. As God said, And because of my anger I swore: "They will never enter into my rest!" And yet God's works were completed at the foundation of the world. NRS 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, "As in my anger I swore, "They shall not enter my rest,' " though his works were finished at the foundation of the world. CEB 4 Then somewhere he said this about the seventh day of creation: God rested on the seventh day from all his works. NRS 4 For in one place it speaks about the seventh day as follows, "And God rested on the seventh day from all his works." CEB 5 But again, in the passage above, God said, They will never enter my rest! NRS 5 And again in this place it says, "They shall not enter my rest." CEB 6 Therefore, it's left open for some to enter it, and the ones who had the good news preached to them before didn't enter because of disobedience. NRS 6 Since therefore it remains open for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience, CEB 7 Just as it says in the passage above, God designates a certain day as "today," when he says through David much later, Today, if you hear his voice, don't have stubborn hearts. NRS 7 again he sets a certain day—"today"—saying through David much later, in the words already quoted, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." CEB 8 If Joshua gave the Israelites rest, God wouldn't have spoken about another day later on. NRS 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not speak later about another day. CEB 9 So you see that a sabbath rest is left open for God's people. NRS 9 So then, a sabbath rest still remains for the people of God; CEB 10 The one who entered God's rest also rested from his works, just as God rested from his own. NRS 10 for those who enter God's rest also cease from their labors as God did from his. CEB 11 Therefore, let's make every effort to enter that rest so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience, NRS 11 Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one may fall through such disobedience as theirs. CEB 12 because God's word is living, active, and sharper than any two-edged sword. It penetrates to the point that it separates the soul from the spirit and the joints from the marrow. It's able to judge the heart's thoughts and intentions. NRS 12 Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. CEB 13 No creature is hidden from it, but rather everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of the one to whom we have to give an answer. NRS 13 And before him no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one to whom we must render an account. CEB 14 Also, let's hold on to the confession since we have a great high priest who passed through the heavens, who is Jesus, God's Son; NRS 14 Since, then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession. CEB 15 because we don't have a high priest who can't sympathize with our weaknesses but instead one who was tempted in every way that we are, except without sin. NRS 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. CEB 16 Finally, let's draw near to the throne of favor with confidence so that we can receive mercy and find grace when we need help. NRS 16 Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
