2For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard.2For 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.
3For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, "AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST," although His works were finished from the foundation of the world.3For we who have believed enter that rest, as he has said, “As I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter my rest,’” although his works were finished from the foundation of the world.

7He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, "TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS."7again he appoints a certain day, “Today,” saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”
8For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that.8For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken of another day later on.

10For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.10for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.
11Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience.11Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.
12For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.12For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
