Hebrews 4
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1We may fear, then, lest a promise being left of entering into His rest, anyone of you may seem to have come short, 2for we also are having good news proclaimed, even as they, but the word heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard,

3for we enter into the rest—we who believed, as He said, “So I swore in My anger, They will [not] enter into My rest”; and yet the works were done from the foundation of the world,

4for He spoke in a certain place concerning the seventh [day] thus: “And God rested in the seventh day from all His works”; 5and in this [place] again, “They will [not] enter into My rest”; 6since then, it remains for some to enter into it, and those who first heard good news did not enter in because of unbelief—

7again He limits a certain day, “Today,” in David saying, after so long a time, as it has been said, “Today, if you may hear His voice, you may not harden your hearts,”

8for if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken after these things concerning another day; 9there remains, then, a Sabbath rest to the people of God, 10for he who entered into His rest, he also rested from his works, as God from His own. 11May we be diligent, then, to enter into that rest, that no one may fall in the same example of the unbelief,

12for the Word of God is living, and working, and sharper—beyond every two-edged sword—and piercing as far as [the] division of soul and spirit, of joints and also marrows, and a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart; 13and there is not a created thing hidden before Him, but all things [are] naked and open to His eyes—with whom is our reckoning.

14Having, then, a great Chief Priest having passed through the heavens—Jesus the Son of God—may we hold fast the profession, 15for we do not have a Chief Priest unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but [One] tempted in all things in like manner, [yet] without sin; 16we may come near, then, with freedom, to the throne of grace, that we may receive kindness, and find grace—for seasonable help.
