s And Mofes verily was faithful in all his Houfe as a Servant, for a Teftimony of thofe Things which were to be spoken after ;

6 But CHRIST as a Son over his OWN HOUSE: whofe Houfe are we, if

we hold faft the CONFIDENCE, and the REJOYCING of the HOPE, firm unto the End.

7 Wherefore as the Holy GHOST voice, faith, To day if ye will hear his


20 But the Prophet which fhall prefume to fpeak a Word in my Name, which I have not commanded him to fpeak, or that fhall fpeak in the Name of other Gods, even that Prophet fhall die. proved me, and faw my Works forty Years.

10 Wherefore I was grieved with that Generation, and faid, They do als ways err in their Heart; and they have not known my Ways.

8 HARDEN not your HEARTS, as in the Provocation, in the Day of Temptation in the Wilderness:

9 When your Fathers tempted me,

11 So I fware in my Wrath, They shall not ENTER into my REST.

12 Take heed, Brethren, left there be in any of you an EVIL HEART of UNBELIEF, in DEPARTING from the LIVING GOD.

13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called, To day; left any of you be HARDNED through the DECEITFULNESS of SIN.

14 For we are made PARTAKERS of CHRIST, if we hold the Beginning of Our CONFIDENCE ftedfaft unto the End;

15 While it is faid, TO-DAY if ye will hear his Voice, HARDEN not your HEARTS, as in the PROVOCATION.

16 For fome when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit, not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17 But with whom was he grieved forty Years? was it not with them that had finned, whofe Carcafes fell in the Wilderness?

18 And to whom fware he that they should not enter into his REST, but to them that BELIEVED NOT?

19 So we see that they could not enter in, because of UNBELIEF.

21 And if thou fay in thine Heart, How fhall we know the Word which the LORD hath not spoken?

22 When a Prophet fpeaketh in the Name of the LORD, if the Thing follow not nor come to pafs, that is the Thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the Prophet hath spoken it prefumptuoufly: thou fhalt not be afraid of him.
