The Believer's Rest

1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come R119 short of it. 2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the R120 word they F29 heard did not profit them, because it F30 was not united by faith in those who heard. 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, "AS R121 I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST," although His works were finished from R122 the foundation of the world. 4 For He has said somewhere R123 concerning the seventh day: "AND R124 GOD RESTED R125 ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS"; 5 and again in this passage, "THEY R126 SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST." 6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience, R127 7 He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying through F31 David after so long a time just as R128 has been said before, "TODAY R129 IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS." 8 For if R130 Joshua F32 had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested R131 from his works, as God R132 did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example R133 of disobedience. R134 12 For the R135 word of God is living R136 and active R137 and sharper than any two-edged sword, R138 and piercing as far as the division of soul R139 and spirit, R139 of both joints and marrow, and able R140 to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there R141 is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open R142 and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

14 Therefore, since we have a great high R143 priest who has passed R144 through the heavens, Jesus the R145 Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. R146 15 For we do not have a R147 high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted R148 in all things as we are, yet without R149 sin. 16 Therefore let us draw R150 near with confidence R151 to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
