Ivrim 4 – איגרת שאול אל העברים ד


1Let us therefore fear, while the promise of entering into His rest remains, lest some amongst you find they are prevented from entering. 2For HaB’sorah was declared to us as it was to them also, but HaDavar, which they heard, did not benefit them, because it was not mixed with trust by those who heard it.  3But we who have trusted will enter into rest, as He said, “As I have sworn in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest;” for behold, the works of Elohim were from the very foundation of the world.  4For He said concerning Shabbat, “Elohim rested on the seventh day from all His works.”  5And here again He said, “They shall not enter into my rest.”  6There was a chance for some to enter therein, but they to whom HaB’sorah was first declared did not enter because they would not listen; 7and again, after a long time He appointed another day, as it is written above; for David said, “Today, if you hear His voice,  harden not your hearts.”  8For if Yehoshua Bin Nun had given them rest, he would not afterward have spoken of another day.  9Therefore, for the people of Elohim, doing Shabbat remains.  10For he who has entered into His rest also has ceased from his own works, as Elohim did from His.

11Let us strive therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall like those who were disobedient.  12For the D’var HaElohim is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the point of division between soul and spirit, and between the joints and marrow and bones, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  13And there is no creature hidden from His sight; but all things are naked and open before the eyes of Him to whom we are to answer.  14We have, therefore, a great Kohen Gadol who has ascended into heaven, Yeshua HaMashi’akh, Ben HaElohim; let us remain firm in confessing Him.  15For we do not have a Kohen Gadol who cannot share our infirmities, but we have one who was tempted with everything as we are, and yet without sin.  16Let us, therefore, come in confidence to the throne of His compassion, that we may obtain mercy and find compassion to help in time of need.
