NASB — Hebrews 4 — KJV

The Believer’s Rest

1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have acome short of it. 2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but athe word Ithey heard did not profit them, because IIit was not united by faith in those who heard. 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said,
  “aAS I SWORE IN MY WRATH,
  THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST,”
although His works were finished bfrom the foundation of the world. 4 For He has said asomewhere concerning the seventh [day]: “bAND GOD cRESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS”; 5 and again in this [passage], “aTHEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST.” 6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of adisobedience, 7 He again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying Ithrough David after so long a time just aas has been said before,
  “bTODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE,
  DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS.”
8 For aif IJoshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also arested from his works, as bGod did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through [following] the same aexample of bdisobedience. 12 For athe word of God is bliving and cactive and sharper than any two-edged dsword, and piercing as far as the division of esoul and espirit, of both joints and marrow, and fable to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And athere is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are bopen and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

The rest of Christians is attained by faith.

1 ¶ 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. 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 [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 [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5 And in this [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 [did] from his. 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

The power of God's Word.

12 For the word of God [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 [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 [are] naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

By our high priest Jesus the Son of God, subject to infirmities, but not sin,

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 [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 [we are, yet] without sin.
