2 For indeed we have had the good news announced to us, even as they also; but the word heard did not profit them, 1not being mixed together with faith in those who heard.
3 For we who have believed enter into the rest, even as He has said, a“As I swore in My wrath, They shall not enter into My rest!” although the works of creation were completed from the bfoundation of the world.
4 For He has spoken somewhere concerning the seventh day thus, a“And God rested on the seventh day from all His works.”
5 And in this place again, a“They shall not enter into My rest!”
7 He again designates a certain day, today, saying in David after so long a time, even as He has said before, a“Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.”
9 So then there remains a 1Sabbath rest for the people of God.
10 For he who has entered into His rest has himself also rested from his works, as aGod did from His own.
12 For the 1aword of God is bliving and operative and sharper than any two-edged csword, and piercing even to the dividing of 2dsoul and espirit and of joints and marrow, and able to discern the 3thoughts and intentions of the heart.
13 And there is no creature that is not manifest before Him, but all things are naked and laid bare to the eyes of Him to whom we are to give our account.
