The Son Was Faithful


1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,
2 who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as aMoses also was faithful in all His house.
3 For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as aHe who built the house has more honor than the house.
4 For every house is built by someone, but aHe who built all things is God.
5 aAnd Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as ba servant, cfor a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward,
6 but Christ as aa Son over His own house, bwhose house we are cif we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope 1firm to the end.

Be Faithful

7 Therefore, as athe Holy Spirit says:

b“Today, if you will hear His voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness,
9 Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years.
10 Therefore I was angry with that generation, And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, And they have not known My ways.’
11 So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”

12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;
13 but 1exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning

of our confidence steadfast to the end,
15 while it is said:

a“Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” Failure of the Wilderness Wanderers

16 aFor who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses?
17 Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, awhose corpses fell in the wilderness?
18 And ato whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?
19 So we see that they could not enter in because of aunbelief.

The Promise of Rest


Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, alet us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.
2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, 1not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
3 For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:

a“So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest,’ ”

although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: a“And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”;
5 and again in this place: a“They shall not enter My rest.”
6 Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience,
7 again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said:

a“Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.”

8 For if 1Joshua had agiven them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day.
9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.

The Word Discovers Our Condition

11 aLet us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall ac-

cording to the same example of disobedience.
12 For the word of God is aliving and powerful, and bsharper than any ctwo-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is da discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 aAnd there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are bnaked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

Our Compassionate High Priest

14 Seeing then that we have a great aHigh Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, blet us hold fast our confession.
15 For awe do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but bwas in all points tempted as we are, cyet without sin.
16 aLet us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

A Prayer for Divine Scrutiny and Redemption

A Psalm of David.

1 VINDICATE ame, O LORD, For I have bwalked in my integrity. cI have also trusted in the LORD; I shall not slip.
2 aExamine me, O LORD, and 1prove me; Try my mind and my heart.
3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And aI have walked in Your truth.
4 I have not asat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites.
5 I have ahated the assembly of evildoers, And will not sit with the wicked.

6 I will wash my hands in innocence; So I will go about Your altar, O LORD,
