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 

3:8Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of testing in the wilderness.

3:9There your fathers tested me and tried me, 3  and they saw my works for forty years.

3:10Therefore, I became provoked at that generation and said, ‘Their hearts are always wandering 4  and they have not known my ways.’

3:11As 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 Mosesleadership? 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.
