1Therefore, set-apart brothers, partakers of the heavenly calling, closely consider the Emissary and High Priest of our confession, Messiah יהושע,
2who was trustworthy to Him who appointed Him, as also Mosheh in all His house.
3For this One has been deemed worthy of more esteem than Mosheh, as much as He who built the house enjoys more respect than the house.
4For every house is built by someone, but He who built all is Elohim.
5And Mosheh indeed was trustworthy in all His house as a servant, for a witness of what would be spoken later,
6but Messiah as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the boldness and the boasting of the expectation firm to the end.
7Therefore, as the Set-apart Spirit says, “Today, if you hear His voice,
8do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of trial in the wilderness,
9where your fathers tried Me, proved Me, and saw My works forty years.
10“Therefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, and they have not known My ways.’
11“As I swore in My wrath, ‘If they shall enter into My rest...’ ”#Ps. 95:7-11.
12Look out, brothers, lest there be in any of you a wicked heart of unbelief in falling away from the living Elohim,
13but encourage one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened by the deceivableness of sin.
14For we have become partakers of Messiah if we hold fast the beginning of our trust firm to the end,
15while it is said, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
16For who, having heard, rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Mitsrayim, led by Mosheh?
17And with whom was He grieved forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness?
18And to whom did He swear that they would not enter into His rest, but to those who did not obey?
19So we see that they were unable to enter in because of unbelief.
