JND Translation Notes

e
That is, God's house, in which Moses was faithful as a ministering servant. The contrast is with "Moses as a servant in," and "Christ as a Son over." The Father is not brought in as such at all, but the Son is over the house as Son. The connection with its being God's house is evident, because he (Christ) has built the house, ver. 3, and he who built all things is God; but he is over it as Son.

W. Kelly Translation

but Christ as Son over his house, whose house are we if indeed we hold fast the boldness and the boast of the hope firm unto the end1.

WK Translation Notes

^ Son... the... the: surely it is Christ as "Son over His house," not "a Son." Nor is there ground to say "our," but "the" boldness and the boast, rather than boasting and glorying, which would be rather καύχησις. (Bible Treasury 14:45)
^ Son: Had they [the American correctors of the RV] remarked on the too common dilution of the Revisers which re-appears in 6, there would have been true ground for exception; for surely "as Son" is the sense, not "as a son." (Bible Treasury 15:30)
