Chapter 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. 

 

 


4

 

 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 

 

 


5

 

 And in this [place] again, If they shall enter into my rest. 

 

 


6

 

 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 

 

 


7

 

 Again, he limiteth 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 Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 

 

 


9

 

 There remaineth 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 labour 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 twoedged 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. 

 

 


15

 

 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin. 

 

 


16

 

 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
