Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you will hear His voice,

Wherefore, even as the Holy Spirit saith, To-day if ye shall hear his voice,

Because of this, it is just as the Holy Spirit says: “If today you hear his voice,

Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of trial in the wilderness,

Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, Like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness,

Where your fathers tested Me, they tried Me, and saw My works forty years.

Your fathers tempted me even though they examined and saw my works forty years.

When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.

10  Therefore I was indignant with that generation, and said, 'They go astray in their heart; and they did not know My ways.'

10  For this reason, I was enraged against this generation, and I said: They always wander astray in heart. For they have not known my ways.

11  So I swore in My wrath, 'They shall not enter My rest.'

12  Take heed, brothers, lest there be in any one of you a wicked heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;

12  Be cautious, brothers, lest perhaps there may be, in any of you, an evil heart of unbelief, turning aside from the living God.

12  Take heed therefore, my brethren, lest perhaps there is a man among you who has an evil heart and is not a believer, and you will be cut off from the living God.

14  For we have become partakers of Christ, if indeed we hold fast the beginning of the assurance firm until the end,

14  For we have been made participants in Christ. This is only so, if we firmly retain the beginning of his substance, even unto the end.

15  while it is said: "Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."

15  For it has been said: “If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts, in the same manner as in the former provocation.”

15  As it is said, Today, if you hear even the echoes of his voice, do not harden your hearts to anger him.

16  For some, having heard, did provoke: but not all who came out of Egypt through Moses.

16  Who are those who have heard and provoked him? Were they not those who came out of Egypt under Moses, although not all of them?

17  And with whom was He indignant forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?

17  So against whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not those who had sinned, whose dead bodies lay prostrate in the desert?

17  But with whom was he displeased for forty years? Was it not especially with those who had sinned and whose bones lay in the wilderness?

4:2  For indeed we have had the gospel preached [to us] just as those also; but the word which they heard did not profit those, not having been mixed with faith in those having heard it.

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.

4:3  For we who have believed enter that rest, as He has said: "So I swore in My wrath, they shall not enter My rest,"although His works were finished from the foundation of the world.

For we who have believed shall enter into rest, in the same manner as he said: “So it is as I have sworn in my wrath: They shall not enter into my rest!” And certainly, this is when the works from the foundation of the world have been finished.

But we who have believed will enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest; for behold, the works of God were from the very foundation of the world.

4:4  For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day thus, "And God rested on the seventh day from all His works;"

For, in a certain place, he spoke about the seventh day in this manner: “And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.”

For he said concerning the sabbath, God rested on the seventh day from all his works.

he again defineth a certain day, To-day, saying in David so long a time afterward (even as hath been said before), To-day if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts.

And again, after a long time he appointed another day, as it is written above, for David said, Today if you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

4:8  For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not have spoken afterward of another day.

4:9  Then there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.

It is therefore the duty of the people of God to keep the Sabbath.

4:10  For he who has entered into His rest also rested himself from his works, as God [did] from His own.

4:11  Therefore let us be diligent to enter into that rest, lest anyone falls in the same example of disobedience.

11  Let us therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, that no man fall after the same example of disobedience.

11  Let us strive therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall like those who were disobedient.
