4:1 Therefore dread we, least peradventure while the promise of entering into his rest is left, that any of us be guessed for to fail. Let us fear therefore lest any of us forsaking the promise of entering into his rest, should seem to come behind. Let us fear therefore, lest at any time by forsaking the promise of entering into his rest any of you should seem to be deprived. Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us, of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
4:2 Forsooth it is told to us, as and to them. And the word that was heard profited not to them, not mingled to faith of those things that they heard. For unto us was it declared, as well as unto them. But it profited not them that they heard the word, because they which heard it coupled it not with faith. For unto us was the Gospel preached as also unto them: but the word that they heard, profited not them, because it was not mixed with faith in those that heard it. 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 it.
4:3 Forsooth we that have believed shall enter into rest, as he said, As I swore in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest. And soothly the works were made perfect from the ordinance of the world, we which have believed, do enter into his rest, as contrariwise he said to the other: as I have sworn in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest. and that spake he verily long after that the works were made, from the foundation of the world laid. For we which have believed, do enter into rest, as he said to the other, 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. 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.
4:4 he said thus in some place of the seventh day, And God rested in the seventh day from all his works. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day, on this wise: And god did rest the seventh day from all his works. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise: And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
4:5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. And in this place again: They shall not come into my rest. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. And in this place again: If they shall enter into my rest.
4:6 Therefore for it followeth, that some men shall enter into it, and they first to whom it is told, entered not for their unbelief. Seeing therefore it followeth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entered not therein for unbelief’s sake. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entered not therein for unbelief’s sake: Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached, entered not in because of unbelief:
4:7 Again, he termineth some day, saying in David, Today, after so much of time, as it is before-said, Today if ye have heard his voice, do not ye harden your hearts. Again he appointeth in David a certain present day after so long a time, saying as it is rehearsed: this day if ye hear his voice, be not hardhearted. Again he appointed in David a certain day by Today, after so long a time, saying, as it is said, This day if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts. Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, Today, after so long a time; as it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
4:8 For if Jesus had given rest to them, he should never speak of other after that day. For if Josue had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not after this day have spoken of another. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
4:9 Therefore rest is left to the people of God. There remaineth therefore yet a rest unto the people of god. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, and he rested of his works, as also God of his. For he that is entered into his rest doth cease from his own works, as god did from his. For he that is entered into his rest, hath also ceased from his own works, as God did from his. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
4:11 Therefore haste we to enter into that rest, that no man fall into the same ensample of unbelief. Let us study therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall into such an ensample of unbelief: Let us study therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same ensample of disobedience. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
4:12 For the word of God is quick, and speedy in working, and more able to pierce than any two-edged sword, and entering, unto parting of soul and spirit, and of jointures and marrows, and it is the deemer of thoughts and intents of hearts. for the word of god is quick, and mighty in operation, and sharper than any two edged sword: and entereth through, even unto the dividing a sunder of the soul and the spirit and of the joints, and the marrow: and judgeth the thoughts and the intents of the heart. For the word of God is lively, & mighty in operation, and sharper than any two edged sword, & entereth through, even unto the dividing asunder of the soul & the spirit, and of the joints, & the marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the heart. For the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
4:13 And no creature is invisible in the sight of God. For all things be naked and open to his eyes, to whom a word to us. Neither is there any creature invisible in the sight of it: but all things are naked and bare unto the eyes of him, of whom we speak. Neither is there any creature, which is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked & open unto his eyes, with whom we have to do. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked, and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
4:14 Therefore we that have a great bishop, that pierced heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, hold we the confession of our faith. Seeing then that we have a great high priest which hath entered heaven (I mean Jesus the son of God) let us keep our profession. Seeing then that we have a great high Priest, which is entered into heaven, even Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Seeing then that we have a great high Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
4:15 For we have not a bishop, that may not have compassion on our infirmities, but was tempted by all things by likeness, without sin. For we have not an high priest, which cannot have compassion on our infirmities: but was in all points tempted, in like manner: but yet without sin. For we have not an high Priest, which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all things tempted in like sort, yet without sin. 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 we are, yet without sin.
4:16 Therefore go we with trust to the throne of his grace, that we get mercy, and find grace in covenable help. Let us therefore go boldly unto the seat of grace, that we may receive mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Let us therefore go boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, & find grace to help in time of need. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
