The weakness of the law sacrifices.
Hebrews 10:1 For the lawe (hauynge the shadowe of good thynges to come, and not þe very fasshion of þe thinges them selues) can neuer with those sacrifices which they offer; yeare by yeare continually make the commers therunto parfayt. Hebrews 10:2 For wold not then those sacrifices haue ceased to haue bene offred, because that the offerers once purged shuld haue had no more conscience of synnes? Hebrews 10:3 Neuerthelesse, in those sacrifyces, is there mencyon made of synnes euery yeare. Hebrews 10:4 For the bloude of oxen and of goates can not take awaye synnes. Hebrews 10:5 Wherfore, when he commeth into þe worlde he sayth: Sacryfyce and offerynge þu woldest not haue: but a bodye hast þu ordeyned me: Hebrews 10:6 Burnt offerynges also for synne hast þu not alowed. Hebrews 10:7 Then sayd I: lo, I am here. In the begynnyng of the booke it is written of me, þt I shuld do thy will, o God. Hebrews 10:8 Aboue, when he sayeth: sacryfice & offeryng, & burnt sacryfyces and synne offerynges þu woldest not haue, nether hast þu alowed them (whiche yet are offered by þe lawe) Hebrews 10:9 then sayd he: Lo, I am here, to do thy wyll, o God: he taketh awaye the fyrst to stablisshe the latter,
The sacrifice of Christ's body once offered,
Hebrews 10:10 by wych will we are made holy, euyn by þe offeryng of þe body of Iesu Christe once for all. Hebrews 10:11 And euery prest is ready dayly ministring and offryng often tymes one maner of oblacion, which can neuer take awaye synnes. Hebrews 10:12 But thys man after he hath offered one sacrifice for synnes, is set downe for euer on the ryght hand of God, Hebrews 10:13 & from hence forth taryeth tyll his foes be made his fote stole.
for ever hath taken away sins.
Hebrews 10:14 For wt one offeringe hath he made parfecte for euer, them þt are sanctyfyed. Hebrews 10:15 The holy goost him self also beareth vs recorde, euen when he tolde before: Hebrews 10:16 This is þe testament þt I wyll make vnto them: after those dayes (sayth þe lorde) I will put my lawes in their hertes, & in their myndes will I write them, Hebrews 10:17 & their synnes & iniquities will I remember nomore. Hebrews 10:18 And where remission of these thynges is, ther is nomore offeryng for synne.
An exhortation to hold fast the faith, with patience and thanksgiving.
Hebrews 10:19 Seyng therfore brethren, þt by þe meanes of þe bloud of Iesu we haue libertye to enter into þe holy place, Hebrews 10:20 by þe new & lyuing waye whych he hath prepared for vs, through þe vayle (that is to saye, by his flesshe.) Hebrews 10:21 And seing also þt we haue an hye prest whych is ruler ouer þe house of God, Hebrews 10:22 let vs draw nye wt a true herte in a sure fayth, sprynckeled in our hertes & þe euyll conscience put awaye & wesshed in our bodyes wt pure water: Hebrews 10:23 let vs kepe þe profession of our hope, wt out waueryng (for he is faithfull þt promysed) Hebrews 10:24 & let vs consider one another, to þe intent þt we maye prouoke vnto loue, & to good workes, Hebrews 10:25 not forsakynge þe felishyppe þt we haue among our selues, as the maner of some is: but let vs exhorte one another, & so moch the more, because ye se that the daye draweth nye. Hebrews 10:26 For yf we synne wyllfully after þt we haue receaued þe knowledge of the trueth, ther remayneth nomore sacryfyce for synnes, Hebrews 10:27 but a fearfull lokyng for iudgement, & violent fyre, whych shall deuoure þe aduersaries. Hebrews 10:28 He þt despiseth Moses lawe, dyeth wythout mercy vnder two or thre witnesses: Hebrews 10:29 how moch sorer (suppose ye) shall he be ponisshed which treadeth vnder fote þe sonne of God: & counteth the bloude of þe testament, wherwith he was sanctifyed, as an vnholy thyng, & doth dishonoure to þe sprete of grace. Hebrews 10:30 For we knowe hym þt hath sayd: It belongeth vnto me to take vengeaunce. I wyll recompence sayth þe Lord. And agayne: þe Lord shal iudge his people. Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearfull thynge to fall into þe handes of the lyuyng God. Hebrews 10:32 Call to remembraunce the dayes that are passed, in the whych after ye had receaued lyght, ye endured a greate fyght of aduersities, Hebrews 10:33 partly whyle all men wondred & gased at you for the shame and tribulacyon on þt was done vnto you: partly, whyle ye became companyons of them which so passed their tyme. Hebrews 10:34 For ye became parttakers also of þe afflyccyons whych happened thorow my bondes, & toke in worth the spoylyng of your goodes, & that wyth gladnes: knowynge in your selues, how that ye haue in heauen a better & an enduring substaunce. Hebrews 10:35 Cast not awaye therfore your confydence, whych hath a great recompence of rewarde. Hebrews 10:36 For ye haue nede of pacyence, that after ye haue done the wyll of God, ye myght receaue þe promes. Hebrews 10:37 For yet a very lytell whyle, & he þt shall come wyll come, & wyll not tary. Hebrews 10:38 But the iust shall lyue by faith. And yf he withdrawe him selfe, my soule shall haue no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:39 It is not we þt withdrawe our selues vnto dampnacion, but we partayne vnto fayth, to the wynnynge of the soule.
