3:7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

Oh, that today you would listen as he speaks!

3:8Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of testing in the wilderness.

3:9There your fathers tested me and tried me, and they saw my works for forty years.

3:10Therefore, I became provoked at that generation and said,Their hearts are always wandering and they have not known my ways.

3:11As I swore in my anger,They will never enter my rest!’”
