The weakness of the law sacrifices.
Hebrews 10:1 For the lawe whyche hath but the shadowe of good thinges to come, and not the thynges in theyr owne fashyon can neuer wyth the sacrifyces whych they offer yere by yere continuallly, make the commers thereunto perfect. Hebrews 10:2 For woulde not then those sacryfyces haue ceased to haue bene offered, because that the offerers once pourged shoulde haue had no more consciences of synnes? Hebrews 10:3 Neuertheles in those sacryfyces is ther mencyon made of synnes euery yeare. Hebrews 10:4 For it is vnpossyble that the bloude of oxen and of gotes shoulde take awaye synnes. Hebrews 10:5 Wherfore, when he commeth into þe world he sayth: Sacrifyce and offerynge thou wouldest not haue: but a body hast thou ordeyned me. Hebrews 10:6 In sacryfyces and synne offerynges thou hast not luste. Hebrews 10:7 Then I saide: Lo I come, in the cheyfest in the boke it is wrytten of me, that I should do thy wil, O God. Hebrews 10:8 Aboue when he had sayd sacryfyce and offerynge, and burnte sacrifices and synne offerynges thou wouldest not haue, neither hast alowed (whyche yet are offered by the lawe) Hebrews 10:9 and then sayd, Lo I come to do thy wyll, O God: he taketh awaye the fyrste to stablysshe þe latter.
The sacrifice of Christ's body once offered,
Hebrews 10:10 By the whiche wyll we are sanctyfyed, by the offerynge of the bodye of Ieu Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:11 And euery priest is redy daylie mynistring and ofte tymes offereth one maner of offerynge whyche can neuer take awaye synnes. Hebrews 10:12 But thys man after he had offered one sacryfyce for synnes, satte hym downe for euer on the right hande of God, Hebrews 10:13 and from henceforth taryeth tyl hys foes be made hys fote stole.
for ever hath taken away sins.
Hebrews 10:14 For wyth one offeryng hath he made perfecte for euer, them that are sanctyfyed. Hebrews 10:15 And the holy ghost also beareth vs record of thys, euen when he told before: Hebrews 10:16 Thys is the testamente that I wyl make to them: after those dayes sayth the Lorde. I wyll put my lawes in theyr hertes and in theyr mynde I wyll wryte them Hebrews 10:17 and theyr synnes and iniquities wyll I remember no more. Hebrews 10:18 And where remyssyon of these thynges is, there is no more offerynge for synne.
An exhortation to hold fast the faith, with patience and thanksgiving.
Hebrews 10:19 Seynge brethren that, by the meanes of the bloude of Iesu, we may be bold to enter into that holy place, Hebrews 10:20 by the newe and lyuynge waye, whych he hath prepared for vs, thorow the vayle, that is to say hys flesh. Hebrews 10:21 And seynge also that we haue an hye pryest which is ruler ouer the house of God Hebrews 10:22 let vs draw nye wyth a true herte in a full fayth, sprynkeled in our hertes from an euyl conscyence, and washed in our bodyes wyth pure water, Hebrews 10:23 and let vs kepe the professyon of our hope, wythout wauerynge (for he is faithful that promysed) Hebrews 10:24 and let vs consyder one another to prouoke vnto loue, and to good workes: Hebrews 10:25 and let vs not forsake the feloshyppe that we haue among our selues, as the maner of some is: but let vs exhort one another and that so muche the more, because ye se that the day draweth nye. Hebrews 10:26 For yf we synne wyllyngly after that we haue receyued þe knowledge of the trueth, ther remayneth no more sacryfyce for synnes, Hebrews 10:27 but a fearful lokynge for iudgement, and vyolente fyre, whyche shal deuoure the aduersaryes. Hebrews 10:28 He that despyseth Moyses lawe, dyeth wythout mercye vnder two or thre wytnesses Hebrews 10:29 Of howe muche sorer punyshement suppose ye shal he be counted worthy, whych treadeth vnder fote the sonne of God: and counted the bloud of the testament as an vnholy thynge wherwyth he was sanctyfyed, and doth dishonour to the spyryte of grace. Hebrews 10:30 For we knowe hym that hath sayde: vengeaunce belongeth vnto me. I wyll recompence sayth the lorde. And agayne: the lord shall iudge hys people. Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearfull thynge to falle into the handes of the lyuynge God. Hebrews 10:32 Cal to remembraunce the dayes that are passed in the whyche after ye had receyued lyght ye endured a great fyght in aduersities Hebrews 10:33 partely whyle all men wondred and gased at you for the shame and trybulacyon that was done vnto you, and partly, whyle ye became companyons of them whyche so passed theyr tyme. Hebrews 10:34 For ye suffered also wyth my bondes, and toke in worth the spoyllyng of your gootes, & þt wyth gladnes, knowynge in youre selues howe that ye had in heauen a better & an endurynge substaunce. Hebrews 10:35 Caste not awaye therfore youre confidence whiche hath great reward to recompence. Hebrews 10:36 For ye haue nede of pacyence, that after ye haue done the wyll of God, ye myght receyue the promes. Hebrews 10:37 For yet a very lyttel whyle, and he that shall come wyll come, and wyll not tarye. Hebrews 10:38 But the iuste shall lyue by fayth. And yf he wythdrawe hym selfe my soule shal haue no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:39 We are not whych wythdrawe our selues vnto dampnacyon, but partayne to faith, to the winnynge of the soule.
