NT
Hebrews 4:1-13
esv
Therefore (based on the cause and consequences of Israel's rebellion) let us fear
lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it [rest] ,
while the promise of entering his rest still stands.
temporal
actionpurpose
For good news [gospel] came to us just as to them,
but the message they heard did not benefit them,
because they were not united by faith with those who listened.
ground
concessive
For we who have believed enter that rest,
as he has said, “As I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter my rest,’”
although his works were finished from the foundation of the world.
For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.”
And again in this passage he said, “They shall not enter my rest.”
series
ideaexplanation
comparison
Since therefore it remains for some to enter it,
and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter
because of disobedience [faithlessness] ,
again he appoints a certain day,
“Today,” saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”
For if Joshua had given them rest,
God would not have spoken of another day later on.
conditional
So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God,
for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works [future fulfillment; we have not rested from our works]
as God did from his.
inference
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest,
so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience [faithlessness] .
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two- edged sword,
piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow,
and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

And no creature is hidden from his sight,
but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
