Chapter 3
001
Therefore, holy sisters, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priestess of our confession, Jesus;
002
who was faithful to her who appointed her, as also was Moses in all her house.
003
For she has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as she who built the house has more honor than the house.
004
For every house is built by someone; but she who built all things is God.
005
Moses indeed was faithful in all her house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were afterward to be spoken,
006
but Christ is faithful as a Daughter over her house; whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the glorying of our hope firm to the end.
007
Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says, "Today if you will hear her voice,
008
don't harden your hearts, as in the provocation, like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness,
009
where your mothers tested me by proving me, and saw my works for forty years.
010
Therefore I was displeased with that generation, and said, 'They always err in their heart, but they didn't know my ways;'
011
as I swore in my wrath, 'They will not enter into my rest.'"
012
Beware, sisters, lest perhaps there be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God;
013
but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called "today;" lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
014
For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence firm to the end:
015
while it is said, "Today if you will hear her voice, don't harden your hearts, as in the rebellion."
016
For who, when they heard, rebelled? No, didn't all those who came out of Egypt by Moses?
017
With whom was she displeased forty years? Wasn't it with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
018
To whom did she swear that they wouldn't enter into her rest, but to those who were disobedient?
019
We see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
