Hebrews 4:8 Parallel Commentaries

How Should we Make Use of Christ, in Going to the Father, in Prayer, and Other Acts of Worship?

Hebrews 4:1.--Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into His rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God."--Heb. iv. 9. J. S. Kunth, 1700. tr., Emma Frances Bevan, 1899 There is a Day of rest before thee-- Thou weary soul, arise and shine.
