New International Version
Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself.
King James Bible
For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
Darby Bible Translation
For *he* has been counted worthy of greater glory than Moses, by how much he that has built it has more honour than the house.
World English Bible
For he has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who built the house has more honor than the house.
Young's Literal Translation
for of more glory than Moses hath this one been counted worthy, inasmuch as more honour than the house hath he who doth build it,
Hebrews 3:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For this man was counted - As Jesus Christ, in the character of apostle and high priest, is here intended, the word apostle, or this person or personage, should have been supplied, if any, instead of man. Indeed, the pronoun οὑτος should have been translated this person, and this would have referred immediately to Jesus Christ, Hebrews 3:1.
More glory than Moses - We have already seen that the apostle's design is to prove that Jesus Christ is higher than the angels, higher than Moses, and higher than Aaron. That he is higher than the angels has been already proved; that he is higher than Moses he is now proving.
He who hath builded the house - There can be no doubt that a man who builds a house for his own accommodation is more honorable than the house itself; but the house here intended is the Church of God. This Church, here called a house or family, is built by Christ; he is the Head, Governor, Soul and Life of it; he must therefore be greater than Moses, who was only a member and officer in that Church, who never put a stone in this spiritual building but was even himself put in it by the great Architect. Moses was in this house, and faithful in this house; but the house was the house of God, and builded and governed by Christ.

"Hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end" (Heb. iii. 6). The attitude of faith is simple trust. It is Elijah saying to Ahab, "There is a sound of abundance of rain." But then there comes usually a deeper experience in which the prayer is inwrought; it is Elijah on the mount, with his face between his knees, travailing, as it were, in birth for the promised blessing. He has believed for it--and now he must take. The first is Joash shooting the arrow out of the windows, …

2 Corinthians 3:7
Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, transitory though it was,
For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
