1 Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of us should altogether come short of it. 2 For unto us have the good tidings been declared, as well as unto them; but the word heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those that heard it. 3 For we that have believed, do enter into the rest; as he said, I have sworn in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest, though the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he said thus in a certain place, of the seventh day, *And God rested on the seventh day from all his works: 5 And in this again, They shall not enter into my rest. 6 Seeing then it remaineth that some enter into it, and they to whom the good tidings were declared before, entered not in because of unbelief. 7 He again after so long a time, fixeth a certain day, saying by David, To-day; as it was said before, To day, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8 For if Joshua had given them the rest, he would not have afterward spoken of another day: 9 There remaineth therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he that hath entered into his rest, hath himself also ceased from his works, as God did from his.
11 Let us labour therefore, to enter into that rest, lest any one should fall, after the same example of unbelief. 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder both of the soul and spirit, both of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
