Hebrews Chapter 3

Heb. 3:1 Therefore, holy brothers, companions of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Jesus;

Heb. 3:2 who was faithful to Him who makes Him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

Heb. 3:3 For He has been counted worthy of more recognition than Moses, inasmuch, as He who has built the house has more value than the house.

Heb. 3:4 For every house is fully prepared by someone; but He that fully prepared all things is God.

Heb. 3:5 and Moses truly was faithful in all His house, as a serving companion, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken in the future;

Heb. 3:6 but Christ as a Son over His own house; whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm until the end.

Heb. 3:7 Therefore as the Holy Spirit says, today if you will hear His voice,

Heb. 3:8 do not harden your hearts, as in the day of testing in the wilderness:

Heb. 3:9 when your fathers tried Me and tested Me and saw My works for forty years.

Heb. 3:10 Therefore I was nauseous with that generation, and said, they continually wander in their hearts; and they have not known My ways.

Heb. 3:11 So I swore in My wrath, they will not enter into My rest.

Heb. 3:12 See the warning, brothers, unless there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in withdrawing from the living God.

Heb. 3:13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called today; unless any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Heb. 3:14 For we have become companions of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our assurance steadfast to the end;

Heb. 3:15 while it is said, today if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the bitter exasperation.

Heb. 3:16 For some, when they had heard, did exasperate: however not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

Heb. 3:17 But with whom was He nauseous for forty years? Was it not with those who kept sinning, whose dead corpses fell in the wilderness?

Heb. 3:18 And to whom did He swear that they should not enter into His rest, but to those that did not believe?

Heb. 3:19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
