3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly vocation, consider the apostle and high priest of our confession, Jesus:
3:2 Who is faithful to him that made him, as was also Moses in all his house.
3:3 For this man was counted worthy of greater glory than Moses, by so much as he that hath built the house, hath greater honour than the house.
3:4 For every house is built by some man: but he that created all things, is God.
3:5 And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be said:
3:6 But Christ as the Son in his own house: which house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and glory of hope unto the end.
3:7 Wherefore, as the Holy Ghost saith: To day if you shall hear his voice,
3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation; in the day of temptation in the desert,
3:9 Where your fathers tempted me, proved and saw my works,
3:10 Forty years: for which cause I was offended with this generation, and I said: They always err in heart. And they have not known my ways,
3:11 As I have sworn in my wrath: If they shall enter into my rest.
3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest perhaps there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, to depart from the living God.
3:13 But exhort one another every day, whilst it is called to day, that none of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ: yet so, if we hold the beginning of his substance firm unto the end.
3:15 While it is said, To day if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in that provocation.
3:16 For some who heard did provoke: but not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
3:17 And with whom was he offended forty years? Was it not with them that sinned, whose carcasses were overthrown in the desert?
3:18 And to whom did he swear, that they should not enter into his rest: but to them that were incredulous?
3:19 And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief.
