Consequently, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also (A)rested from his works, as (B)God did from His. 11 Therefore let’s make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following the same (C)example of (D)disobedience. 12 For (E)the word of God is (F)living and (G)active, and sharper than any two-edged (H)sword, even penetrating as far as the division of (I)soul and (J)spirit, of both joints and marrow, and (K)able to [a]judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And (L)there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are (M)open and laid bare to the eyes of Him to whom [b]we must answer.

14 Therefore, since we have a great (N)high priest who has (O)passed through the heavens, Jesus (P)the Son of God, let’s hold firmly to our (Q)confession. 15 For we do not have (R)a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been (S)tempted in all things just as we are, yet (T)without sin. 16 Therefore let’s (U)approach the throne of grace with (V)confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace for help at the time of our need.
