For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: (A)“And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.” And again in this passage he said,

(B)“They shall not enter my rest.”

Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news (C)failed to enter because of disobedience, again he appoints a certain day, “Today,” saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted,

(D)“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts.”

For if Joshua had given them rest, God[a] would not have spoken of another day later on. So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, 10 for whoever has entered God's rest has also (E)rested from his works as God did from his.

11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so (F)that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.
