The Promise of Rest
Be Sure to Enter the Promised Rest

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:1 - Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:2 - For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them,[fn] not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:3 - For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:

“So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest,’ ”
[fn]
although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:4 - For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”;[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:5 - and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:6 - Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:7 - again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”
[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:9 - There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:10 - For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
The Word Discovers Our Condition

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:11 - Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:12 - For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:13 - And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
Our Compassionate High Priest

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:14 - Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:15 - For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 4:16 - Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
