Context / meaning
Hebrews 3 [1.] Therefore, holy brothers, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Jesus; who was faithful to him who appointed him, as also was Moses in all his house. For he has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, because he who built the house has more honor than the house. For every house is built by someone; but he who built all things is God.
Hebrews 3 [5.] Moses indeed was faithful in all his house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were afterward to be spoken, but Christ is faithful as a Son over his house; whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the glorying of our hope firm to the end.
Hebrews 3 [7.] Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says,
“Today if you will hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts, as in the rebellion,
like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness,
where your fathers tested me by proving me,
and saw my deeds for forty years.
Therefore I was displeased with that generation,
and said, ‘They always err in their heart,
but they didn’t know my ways;’
as I swore in my wrath,
‘They will not enter into my rest.’”[a]
a. Hebrews 3:11 Psalm 95:7-11.
