For He is our God,
and we are the people of His pasture,
the sheep under His care.[a](A)

Today, if you hear His voice:(B)
Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah,
as on that day at Massah in the wilderness(C)
where your fathers tested Me;
they tried Me, though they had seen what I did.(D)
10 For 40 years I was disgusted with that generation;
I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray;
they do not know My ways.”(E)
11 So I swore in My anger,
“They will not enter My rest.”(F)

  1. Psalm 95:7 Lit sheep of His hand

for he is our God
    and we are the people of his pasture,(A)
    the flock under his care.

Today, if only you would hear his voice,
“Do not harden your hearts(B) as you did at Meribah,[a](C)
    as you did that day at Massah[b] in the wilderness,(D)
where your ancestors tested(E) me;
    they tried me, though they had seen what I did.
10 For forty years(F) I was angry with that generation;
    I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,(G)
    and they have not known my ways.’(H)
11 So I declared on oath(I) in my anger,
    ‘They shall never enter my rest.’”(J)

Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.

10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:

11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
