Hebrews Chapter 4

Heb. 4:1 Let us fear for sure, unless at any time, the promise being forsaken of entering into His rest, anyone should seem to come short of it.

Heb. 4:2 For to us was the good news announced, as well as to them: but the word heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

Heb. 4:3 For we who have believed are coming into rest, as He said, as I have sworn in My wrath, they will not enter into My rest: although the works apart from the downfall of the world were occurring.

Heb. 4:4 For He spoke in a certain way concerning the seventh day, and God did rest the seventh day from all His works.

Heb. 4:5 And in this place again, they will not enter into My rest.

Heb. 4:6 Therefore seeing it remains that some must enter in it, and they to whom it was first evangelized, entered not in because of stubbornness:

Heb. 4:7 again, He defined a certain day, saying in David, today, after so long a time; as it is 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 Therefore there remains a rest for the people of God.

Heb. 4:10 For he that is entering into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His.

Heb. 4:11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter into that rest, unless anyone fall after the same pattern of stubbornness.

Heb. 4:12 For the Word of God is living, and energetic, and sharper than any two- edged sword, penetrating even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Heb. 4:13 There is nothing in creation that is unseen by Him: but all things are naked and exposed to the eyes of Him before whom we are accountable.

Heb. 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into 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 be compassionate of our weaknesses; but was in all aspects tempted just as we are, yet without sin.

Heb. 4:16 Therefore let us advance boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in a needy time.
