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 (B)For 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, (C)whose corpses fell in the wilderness? 18 And (D)to 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 (E)unbelief.

The Promise of Rest

Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, (F)let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, [a]not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
