Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:9 - where your ancestors tested and tried me, though for forty years they saw what I did.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:10 - That is why I was angry with that generation; I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray, and they have not known my ways.’

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:15 - As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”[fn]
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:16 - Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:17 - And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished in the wilderness?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:18 - And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:19 - So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
