Bible: Hebrews 3:7-19
Exposition of Psalm 95: Hearing God’s Word in Faith
3:7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, 1
“Oh, that today you would listen as he speaks! 2
3:8 “Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of testing in the wilderness.
3:9 “There your fathers tested me and tried me, 3 and they saw my works for forty years.
3:10 “Therefore, I became provoked at that generation and said, ‘Their hearts are always wandering 4 and they have not known my ways.’
3:11 “As I swore in my anger, ‘They will never enter my rest!’” 5
3:12 See to it, 6 brothers and sisters, 7 that none of you has 8 an evil, unbelieving heart that forsakes 9 the living God. 10 3:13 But exhort one another each day, as long as it is called “Today,” that none of you may become hardened by sin’s deception. 3:14 For we have become partners with Christ, if in fact we hold our initial confidence 11 firm until the end. 3:15 As it says, 12 “O, that today you would listen as he speaks! 13 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” 14 3:16 For which ones heard and rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Egypt under Moses’ leadership? 15 3:17 And against whom was God 16 provoked for forty years? Was it not those who sinned, whose dead bodies fell in the wilderness? 17 3:18 And to whom did he swear they would never enter into his rest, except those who were disobedient? 3:19 So 18 we see that they could not enter because of unbelief.
