Hebrews 4

Thomson(i) 1 Let us therefore be afraid, lest having a promise left of entering into His Rest any of us should fall short of it. 2 For we have had the glad tidings proclaimed to us, as they also had; but the word which they heard did not profit them; as it was not mixed up with belief by the hearers. 3 For we who have believed enter into that rest spoken of in this passage, "So in my indignation I said they shall not enter into My Rest; "namely, That from the works done at the foundation of the, world. 4 For where speaking of the seventh day the scripture said thus, "And on the seventh day God rested from all His works. 5 And again in this place: "They shall not enter into My rest." 6 Therefore since it is left for some to enter into it, and they who had the glad tidings first proclaimed to them did not enter in because of unbelief, 7 He again determinately apointeth out a day, namely Today, saying by David after so long a time, as it hath been mentioned, "Today since you have heard his voice let not your hearts be refractory." 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, the scripture would not after that have spoken of another day. 9 There is then a Sabbath rest left for the people of God. 10 For he who entereth into That Rest Of His hath desisted from his works, as God did from his. 11 Let us therefore use all diligence to enter into This Rest, that none may fall short by a like example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and penetrateth even to the separation of animal life and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is capable of discerning the desires and thoughts of the heart. 13 There is indeed no creature concealed from his sight. All things are naked and exposed to the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14 Having therefore a great chief priest who hath passed through the heavens, namely Jesus the son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not a chief priest incapable of sympathizing in our infirmities; but one who hath been tried in all respects like ourselves, but without sin. 16 Let us therefore come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find favour for seasonable assistance.
