Modern Literal Version
[Hebrews 3]

     3:1 Hence, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider* Jesus Christ, the Apostle and High-Priest of our confession; 3:2 being faithful to the one who made* him such, as Moses also was in his whole house. {Num 12:7}3:3 For* this one has been deemed worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as the one who constructed it has more honor than the house. 3:4 For* every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God. 3:5 And Moses indeed was faithful in his whole house as a bondservant *for a testimony of the things which will be spoken later; 3:6 but Christ was faithful as a son, over his house; whose house we are, if indeed* we hold-onto our boldness and the boasting of our hope steadfast till the end.

     3:7 Hence, as the Holy Spirit says, 'Today if you* hear his voice, 3:8 do not harden your* hearts, as in the rebellion, according to the day of the testing in the wilderness, 3:9where your* fathers tested me, they proved me, and then saw my works forty years. 3:10Hence I was displeased with that generation and said, They themselves are habitually misled in their hearts, but they did not know my ways. 3:11As I swore in my wrath, that if... they will not be entering into my rest.'{Num 14:22, Psa 95:7-11}

     3:12 Beware* brethren, lest there will be an evil heart of unbelief in anyone of you*, in the withdrawing away from the living God. 3:13 But encourage* yourselves each and every day, till what is called today; in order that not anyone of you* may be hardened by the deception of sin. 3:14For* we have become companions of the Christ, if indeed* we hold-onto the beginning of our firmness steadfast till the end; 3:15 while* it was said, 'If you* hear his voice today, do not harden your* hearts, as in the rebellion.' {Num 14:29, Psa 95:7-11}3:16 For* some who heard, rebelled; but not all those who came out of Egypt through Moses. 3:17 And with whom was he displeasedfor forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? {Num 14:35}3:18 Now to whom had he sworn that they will not be entering into his rest, except to those who were disobedient? 3:19 And we see that they were not able to enter because of unbelief.
