So Consider Jesus As Faithful, Like Moses. But He Is Worthy of More Glory Than Moses
3 Hence[a] holy brothers, partakers[b]of a heavenly calling, consider[c] the Apostle and High Priest of our confession— Jesus— 2 as being faithful[d]to the One having appointed Him, as also was Moses in His[e] whole house. 3 For this One has been considered-worthy ofmore glory than Moses— to the degree that the One[f] having built the house has more honor than the house.
For Moses Was Faithful As a Servant, But Christ Was Faithful As a Son
4 For every house is built by someone, but[g] the One[h] having built all things is God. 5 And Moseswas faithful in His[i] whole house as a servant[j], for[k]a testimony of the things which will[l] be spoken. 6 But Christ was faithful as a Son over His house, whose house we are, if-indeed we hold-on-to our confidence and our boast of the hope.
Therefore Do Not Harden Your Hearts As Israel Once Did
7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says[m] [in Ps 95:7-11]: “Today, if you hear His voice, 8 do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion during the day of testing in the wilderness, 9 where your fathers tested Me with a trial and saw My works 10 for forty years. Therefore I was-angry with this generation and said, ‘They are always going-astray in the heart, and they did not know My ways’. 11 As I swore in My wrath, they will never[n] enter into My rest”.
Watch Out For an Evil Heart of Unbelief As Long As It Is Called “Today”
12 Be watching-out, brothers, so that there will not-ever be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing[o] from the living God. 13 But be exhorting yourselves each day, as long as it is called “Today”, in order that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
For We Are Partakers of Christ If We Hold On Until The End
14 For we have become[p] partakers[q]of Christ if-indeed we hold-on-to the beginning of our assurance[r] firm until the end— 15 in that it is[s] said [in Ps 95:7-8]: “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion”.
For Israel Did Not Enter God’s Rest Because of Unbelief
16 For who having heard rebelled? But was it not all the ones having come out of Egypt through Moses? 17 And with whom was He angry for forty years? Was it not with the ones having sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did He swear that they will not enter into His rest, except to the ones having disobeyed? 19 And we see that they were not able to enter because of unbelief.
