3:7-8 So, as the Holy Spirit says, ‘Today, when you hear me speak, do not oppose what I say. That is what the *Hebrew people did when they were in the desert. 3:9 There they tested me and tried me. They saw what I did for 40 years. 3:10 So I was angry with those people. I said, ‘Their hearts are always wrong. They have not known my ways’. 3:11In my anger I declared, ‘They shall never enter my place of rest (Psalm 95:7-11)’. 3:12 Be careful, my Christian brothers and sisters, that none of you has an evil heart that does not trust God. Such a heart will turn you away from the God who is alive and active. 3:13 Encourage each other daily, as long as it is still ‘today’, to be true to God. This is so that *sin will not lead you away and your hearts become hard towards God. 3:14We are partners with Christ, if we trust him to the end, as we did at first. 3:15God is still saying, ‘Today, when you hear me speak, do not make your hearts hard. That is what the people in the desert did, when they turned away from me’. 3:16 Who heard God, yet turned away from him? It was the people whom Moses led out of the land of *Egypt. 3:17 Who made God angry for 40 years? It was the people who had turned away from him. These all died in the desert. 3:18 To whom did God declare that they would never enter his rest? It was the people who did not obey him. 3:19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because they did not trust God.
