American King James Version
Jesus Our Apostle and High Priest
1Why, holy brothers, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; 2Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. 3For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who has built the house has more honor than the house. 4For every house is built by some man; but he that built all things is God. 5And Moses truly was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; 6But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.
Do Not Harden Your Hearts
7Why (as the Holy Ghost said, To day if you will hear his voice,
8Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
9When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
10Why I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do always err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
11So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
The Dangers of Unbelief
12Take heed, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end;
15While it is said, To day if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
16For some, when they had heard, did provoke: however, not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
