People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 3:11


Heb 3:11 So I sware in my wrath. A figure of speech which means that God, indignant at their unbelief and sin, declared they should not enter Canaan. See Nu 14:20-35. They shall not enter into my rest. Canaan, while the Israelites were yet in bondage, was promised as a land of rest. On the weary journey in the wilderness it was still looked to as the rest. To prohibit from entering the rest was then to prohibit from entering Canaan. It is, however, a type of heaven, the land of eternal rest. Hence, the warnings that are pointed out in the next verse.

    Harden not your hearts as in the day of provocation. We are being warned not to be like the people of Israel who witnessed the miracles of God time and time again and still murmured and complained against God. Because of their unbelief they did not enter into the promise land (his rest). I have witnessed the miracles of God in my own life and refuse to end up missing out on heaven (his rest).

    Verse 13 says we should encourage one another daily as often as possible.

    PARADOX. Rest assure our Heavenly Abba Dad and God Almighty Yahweh will surely bring His Holy and Matchless Word to pass as our Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua Jesus is Truly seated at His Right Hand now and forever more, Glory Amen
  • Emmanuel
    Insight 777 is absolutely mistaken.
    Saint Paul is writing here about the consecration of an Apostle.
    The Apostolic priesthood was after the order of Melchizedek which Jesus ordained and here profession refers to the ministry after the order of Melchizedek and not paid as 777 is referring to.
    Paul is one Saint who also says that I bear in my body the marks of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Insight 777
    Verse 1, Paul is calling Jesus an Apostle! Paul was alive when Jesus selected his 12 Apostles but Paul was not one of them. Jesus never mentioned Paul. Paul made religion a profession.
    The definition of a profession is a paid occupation or an open but often false declaration or claim. Moses and his laws are not the house that Jesus built. Matthew 23:15
