The Kedoshim's everlasting Rest (menuchah)

4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a havtachah (promise) being left [us] of entering into His menuchah (rest), any of you should seem to come short of it.

4:2 For unto us was the good news proclaimed, as well as unto them: but the word proclaimed did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard [it].

4:3 For we which have believed do enter into menuchah (rest), as He said, As I have sworn in My wrath, if they shall enter into My menuchati (rest, מנוחתי): although the melakhto (works,מלאכתו) were finished from the foundation of the Olam Hazeh.

4:4Kiv-Int-link_1.gif For He spake in a certain place of the Yom HaShevi'i on this wise, And Elohim did shabat(rest שׁבת) Yom HaShevi'i from all His melakhto (works, מלאכתו).

4:5 And in this [place] again, If they shall enter into menuchati (rest, מנוחתי).

4:6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first proclaimed entered not in because of unbelief:

4:7 Again, He limiteth a certain day, saying in David, Today, after so long a time; as it is said:

Today if ye will shama His Kol, harden not your hearts.

4:8 For if Yehoshua Ben Nun had given them menuchah (rest), then would He not afterward have spoken of another "Yom".

4:9 There remains therefore a  Shabbat Keeping to the people of Elohim.

4:10 For He that is entered into His menuchah (rest), He also hath ceased from His own melakhto (works, מלאכתו), as Elohim [did] from His.

4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that menuchah (rest), lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

4:12 For the Dvar Elohim (Theós;) [is] living, and active, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of nefesh and ruach, and of the joints and marrow, and able to disern the thoughts and kavanat ha lev (inner intents of the heart).

4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things [are] naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Moshiach Yeshua (ישוע ) the Kohen HaGadol

4:14 Seeing then that we have a great Kohen HaGadol, that is passed into the heavens, Yeshua Ben Elohim (), let us hold fast [our] confession.

4:15 For we have not an Kohen HaGadol which cannot be touched with the feeling of our weakness; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of chesed, that we may obtain mercy, and find chesed to help in time of need.
