Chapter 4

HEB.4:1 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.
HEB.4:2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
HEB.4:3 For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: “So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest,’” although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
HEB.4:4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”;
HEB.4:5 and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.”
HEB.4:6 Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience,
HEB.4:7 again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.”
HEB.4:8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day.
HEB.4:9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
HEB.4:10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
HEB.4:11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.
HEB.4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
HEB.4:13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
HEB.4:14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
HEB.4:15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
HEB.4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
