Hebrews 4 1. Let us therefore fear, lest, a
promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem
to come short of it. 2. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as
unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed
with faith in them that heard it. 3. For we which have believed do enter
into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter
into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of
the world....... 6. Seeing therefore it remain that some must enter
therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because
of unbelief: 7. Again, he limits a certain day, saying in David, To
day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his
voice, harden not your hearts. 8. For if Joshua had given them rest, then
would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9. There remains
therefore a rest to the people of God. 10. For he that is entered into
his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
11. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall
after the same example of unbelief. 12. For the word of God is quick,
and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the
dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and
is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13. Neither is
there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are
naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 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 profession.
