Hebrews - Chapter 4 | King James Version (KJV)

  • 1. Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left {cf15I us} of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
  • 2. 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 {cf15I it}.
  • 3. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
  • 4. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh {cf15I day} on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
  • 5. And in this {cf15I place} again, If they shall enter into my rest.
  • 6. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
  • 7. Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
  • 8. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
  • 9. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
  • 10. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God {cf15I did} from his.
  • 11. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
  • 12. For the word of God {cf15I is} quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and {cf15I is} a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
  • 13. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things {cf15I are} naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
  • 14. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast {cf15I our} profession.
  • 15. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as {cf15I we are, yet} without sin.
  • 16. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
