 New English Bible Hebrews:4Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 Therefore we must have before us the fear that while the promise of entering his rest remains open, one or another among you should be found to have missed his chance.  Φοβηθῶμεν οὖν μήποτε καταλειπομένης ἐπαγγελίας εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσιν αὐτοῦ δοκῇ τις ἐξ ὑμῶν ὑστερηκέναι·
2 For indeed we have heard the good news, as they did. But in them the message they heard did no good, because it met with no faith in those who heard of it.  καὶ γάρ ἐσμεν εὐηγγελισμένοι καθάπερ κἀκεῖνοι, ἀλλ' οὐκ ὠφέλησεν ὁ λόγος τῆς ἀκοῆς ἐκείνους, μὴ συγκεκερασμένους τῇ πίστει τοῖς ἀκούσασιν.
3 It is we, we who have become believers, who enter the rest referred to in the words, 'As I vowed in my anger, they shall never enter my rest.' Yet God's work has been finished ever since the world was created; - As I swore in my wrath Hb.4.3 | Ps.95.11εἰσερχόμεθα γὰρ εἰς [τὴν] κατάπαυσιν οἱ πιστεύσαντες, καθὼς εἰρηκεν,

Ὡς ὤμοσα ἐν τῇ ὀργῇ μου,
Εἰ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσίν μου,
καίτοι τῶν ἐργων ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου γενηθέντων.

4 for does not Scripture somewhere speak thus of the seventh day: 'God rested from his work on the seventh day'?— - And God rested on the seventh day Hb.4.4 | Gn.2.2εἰρηκεν γάρ που περὶ τῆς ἑβδόμης οὑτως, Kαὶ κατέπαυσεν ὁ θεὸς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἔργων αὐτοῦ·
5 and once again in the passage above we read, 'They shall never enter my rest.' - They shall never enter my rest. Hb.4.5 | Ps.95.11καὶ ἐν τούτῳ πάλιν, Εἰ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσίν μου.
6 The fact remains that someone must enter it, and since those who first heard the good news failed to enter through unbelief,  ἐπεὶ οὖν ἀπολείπεται τινὰς εἰσελθεῖν εἰς αὐτήν, καὶ οἱ πρότερον εὐαγγελισθέντες οὐκ εἰσῆλθον δῖ ἀπείθειαν,
7 God fixes another day. Speaking through the lips of David after many long years, he uses the words already quoted: 'Today if you hear his voice, do not grow stubborn.' - Today, when you hear his voice Hb.4.7-11 | Ps.95.7-8πάλιν τινὰ ὁρίζει ἡμέραν, Σήμερον, ἐν Δαυὶδ λέγων μετὰ τοσοῦτον χρόνον, καθὼς προείρηται,

Σήμερον ἐὰν τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ ἀκούσητε,
μὴ σκληρύνητε τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν.

8 If Joshua had given them rest. God would not thus have spoken of another day after that.  εἰ γὰρ αὐτοὺς Ἰησοῦς κατέπαυσεν, οὐκ ἂν περὶ ἀλλης ἐλάλει μετὰ ταῦτα ἡμέρας.
9 Therefore, a sabbath rest still awaits the people of God;  ἀρα ἀπολείπεται σαββατισμὸς τῷ λαῷ τοῦ θεοῦ·
10 for anyone who enters God's rest, rests from his own work as God did from his.  ὁ γὰρ εἰσελθὼν εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσιν αὐτοῦ καὶ αὐτὸς κατέπαυσεν ἀπὸ τῶν ἐργων αὐτοῦ ὡσπερ ἀπὸ τῶν ἰδίων ὁ θεός.
11 Let us then make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by following this evil example of unbelief.
 σπουδάσωμεν οὖν εἰσελθεῖν εἰς ἐκείνην τὴν κατάπαυσιν, ἵνα μὴ ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ τις ὑποδείγματι πέσῃ τῆς ἀπειθείας.
12 For the word of God is alive and active. It cuts more keenly than any two-edged sword, piercing as far as the place where life and spirit, joints and marrow, divide. It sifts the purposes and thoughts of the heart.  Ζῶν γὰρ ὁ λόγος τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐνεργὴς καὶ τομώτερος ὑπὲρ πᾶσαν μάχαιραν δίστομον καὶ διϊκνούμενος ἀχρι μερισμοῦ ψυχῆς καὶ πνεύματος, ἀρμῶν τε καὶ μυελῶν, καὶ κριτικὸς ἐνθυμ ήσεων καὶ ἐννοιῶν καρδίας·
13 There is nothing in creation that can hide from him; everything lies naked and exposed to the eyes of the One with whom we have to reckon.
 καὶ οὐκ ἐστιν κτίσις ἀφανὴς ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ, πάντα δὲ γυμνὰ καὶ τετραχηλισμένα τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ, πρὸς ὃν ἡμῖν ὁ λόγος.
14 Since therefore we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast to the religion we profess. Jesus the Great High Priest Hb.4.14-5.10Ἔχοντες οὖν ἀρχιερέα μέγαν διεληλυθότα τοὺς οὐρανούς, Ἰησοῦν τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ θεοῦ, κρατῶμεν τῆς ὁμολογίας·
15 For ours is not a high priest unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who, because of his likeness to us, has been tested every way, [Or: who has been tested every way, as we are.] only without sin.  οὐ γὰρ ἐχομεν ἀρχιερέα μὴ δυνάμενον συμπαθῆσαι ταῖς ἀσθενείαις ἡμῶν, πεπειρασμένον δὲ κατὰ πάντα καθ' ὁμοιότητα χωρὶς ἀμαρτίας.
16 Let us therefore boldly approach the throne of our gracious God, where we may receive mercy and in his grace find timely help.
 προσερχώμεθα οὖν μετὰ παρρησίας τῷ θρόνῳ τῆς χάριτος, ἵνα λάβωμεν ἐλεος καὶ χάριν εὑρωμεν εἰς εὐκαιρον βοήθειαν.
