The epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Hebrews, chapter 3, New English Translation and King James Version

Chapter 3

New English Translation

   Jesus and Moses
   1 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, partners in a heavenly calling, take note of Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess, 2 who is faithful to the one who appointed him, as Moses was also in God's house. 3 For he has come to deserve greater glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house deserves greater honor than the house itself! 4 For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant, to testify to the things that would be spoken. 6 But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. We are of his house, if in fact we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope we take pride in.
   Exposition of Psalm 95: Hearing God's Word in Faith
   7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, "Oh, that today you would listen as he speaks!
   8 "Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of testing in the wilderness.
   9 "There your fathers tested me and tried me, and they saw my works for forty years.
   10 "Therefore, I became provoked at that generation and said, 'Their earts are always wandering and they have not known my ways.'
   11 "As I swore in my anger, 'They will never enter my rest!'"
   12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has an evil, unbelieving heart that forsakes the living God. 13 But exhort one another each day, as long as it is called "Today, " that none of you may become hardened by sin's deception. 14 For we have become partners with Christ, if in fact we hold our initial confidence firm until the end. 15 As it says, "Oh, that today you would listen as he speaks! Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." 16 For which ones heard and rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Egypt under Moses' leadership? 17 And against whom was God provoked for forty years? Was it not those who sinned, whose dead bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did he swear they would never enter into his rest, except those who were disobedient? 19 So we see that they could not enter because of unbelief.

King James Version

   1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
   2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
   3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
   4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.
   5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
   6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
   7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
   8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
   9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
   10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
   11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
   12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
   13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
   14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
   15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
   16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
   17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
   18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
   19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
