Hebrews 4:9-11

New King James Version (NKJV)

There remains therefore a rest for the people of ‘God’ (ha-‘Elohiym: the-Magistrates, the-Great (ones), etc..). 10 For ‘he’ (ha-nephesh: the-man, the-breathing creature, etc..) who has entered ‘His’ (ha-Ga’al’s: the-Deliverer’s, etc..) rest has himself also ceased from his works as ‘God’ (‘Elohiym) did from ‘His’ (the Deliverers’).

The Word Discovers Our Condition

11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.”
