Hebrews 4 (asv)

Hebrews 4 (asv)

4:1Let us fear therefore, lest haply, a promise being left of entering into his rest, any one of you should seem to have come short of it. 4:2For indeed we have had good tidings preached unto us, even as also they: but the word of hearing did not profit them, because it was not united by faith with them that heard.4:3For we who have believed do enter into that rest; even as he hath said,

As I sware in my wrath,

They shall not enter into my rest:

although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4:4For he hath said somewhere of the seventh day on this wise, And God rested on the seventh day from all his works; 4:5and in this place again,

They shall not enter into my rest.

4:6Seeing therefore it remaineth that some should enter thereinto, and they to whom the good tidings were before preached failed to enter in because of disobedience, 4:7he 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.

4:8For if Joshua had given them rest, he would not have spoken afterward of another day. 4:9There remaineth therefore a sabbath rest for the people of God. 4:10For he that is entered into his rest hath himself also rested from his works, as God did from his. 4:11Let us therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, that no man fall after the same example of disobedience. 4:12For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. 4:13And there is no creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 4:14Having then a great high priest, who hath passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 4:15For we have not a high priest that cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but one that hath been in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 4:16Let us therefore draw near with boldness unto the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace to help us in time of need.
