Ivrim 3 – איגרת שאול אל העברים ג


1From henceforth, O my K’doshim, brothers, called by a call from heaven, look to this Shali’akh and Kohen Gadol of our Emunah, Yeshua HaMashi’akh, 2who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as also Moshe was faithful in all His House.  3The Kavod of Yeshua is much greater than that of Moshe, just as the honor of the builder of the house is greater than the house itself.  4For every house is built by some man; but He who builds all things is Elohim.  5And Moshe, as a servant, was faithful to all His House, and was a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; 6but Mashi’akh as a Son over His own House, whose House we are, if to the end we hold fast with confidence to the glory of His hope.

7Therefore, as The Ru’akh HaKodesh says, “Today, if you will hear His voice, 8harden not your hearts to provoke Him, as the murmurers did in the day of temptation in the wilderness.  9Your fathers tempted me even though they examined and saw my works forty years; 10therefore I was not pleased with that generation, and said, ‘These are a people whose hearts have been misled, and they have not known my ways.’  11So I swore in my anger, they shall not enter into my rest.”  12Take heed therefore, my brethren, lest perhaps there is a man among you who has an evil heart and is not a believer, and you will be cut off from the living Elohim.  13But search your hearts daily, until the day which is called “The Day,” to the end that no man among you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.  14For we are made partakers of Mashi’akh, if from the beginning to the very end we hold steadfast to this true Brit, 15as it is said, “Today, if you hear even the echoes of His voice, do not harden your hearts to anger Him.”  16Who are those who have heard and provoked Him?  Were they not those who came out of Mitzrayim under Moshe, although not all of them?  17But with whom was He displeased for forty years? Was it not especially with those who had sinned, and whose bones lay in the wilderness?  18And against whom did He swear that they should not enter into His rest, except against those who did not listen?  19So we see that they could not enter in because they did not trust.
