The weakness of the law sacrifices.
Hebrews 10:1 For the lawe which hath but the shadowe of good thynges to come and not the thynges in their awne fassion can never with ye sacryfises which they offer yere by yere continually make the comers thervnto parfayte. Hebrews 10:2 For wolde not then those sacrifises have ceased to have bene offered because that the offerers once pourged shuld have had no moare conscieces of sinnes. Hebrews 10:3 Neverthelesse in those sacrifises is ther mencion made of synnes every yeare. Hebrews 10:4 For it is vnpossible that the bloud of oxen and of gotes shuld take awaye synnes. Hebrews 10:5 Wherfore when he commeth into the worlde he sayth: Sacrifice and offeringe thou woldest not have: but a bodie hast thou ordeyned me. Hebrews 10:6 In sacrifices and synne offerynges thou hast no lust. Hebrews 10:7 Then I sayde: Lo I come in the chefest of the boke it is written of me that I shuld doo thy will o god. Hebrews 10:8 Above when he had sayed sacrifice and offerynge and burnt sacrifices and synne offerynges thou woldest not have nether hast alowed (which yet are offered by the lawe) Hebrews 10:9 and then sayde: Lo I come to do thy will o god: he taketh awaye the fyrst to stablisshe the latter.
The sacrifice of Christ's body once offered,
Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified by the offeringe of the body of Iesu Christe once for all. Hebrews 10:11 And every prest is redy dayly ministrynge and ofte tymes offereth one maner of offerynge which can never take awaye synnes. Hebrews 10:12 But this man after he had offered one sacrifyce for synnes sat him doune for ever on the right honde of god Hebrews 10:13 and from hence forth tarieth till his foes be made his fotestole.
for ever hath taken away sins.
Hebrews 10:14 For with one offerynge hath he made parfecte for ever them yt are sanctified. Hebrews 10:15 And ye holy goost also beareth vs recorde of this even when he tolde before: Hebrews 10:16 This is the testament that I will make vnto them after those dayes sayth the lorde. I will put my lawes in their hertes and in their mynde I will write them Hebrews 10:17 and their synnes and iniquyties will I remember no moare. Hebrews 10:18 And where remission of these thinges is there is no moare 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 bloud of Iesu we maye be bolde to enter into that holy place Hebrews 10:20 by the newe and livynge waye which he hath prepared for vs through the vayle that is to saye by his flesshe. Hebrews 10:21 And seynge also that we have an hye prest which is ruler over ye housse of god Hebrews 10:22 let vs drawe nye with a true herte in a full fayth sprynckeled in oure hertes from an evyll conscience and wesshed in oure bodies with pure water Hebrews 10:23 and let vs kepe the profession of oure hope with oute waveringe (for he is faythfull that promysed) Hebrews 10:24 and let vs consyder one another to provoke vnto love and to good workes: Hebrews 10:25 and let vs not forsake the felishippe that we have amoge oure selves as the maner of some is: but let vs exhorte one another and that so moche the more because ye se that the daye draweth nye. Hebrews 10:26 For yf we synne willyngly after that we have receaved the knowledge of the trueth there remayneth no more sacrifice for synnes Hebrews 10:27 but a fearfull lokynge for iudgement and violent fyre which shall devoure the adversaries Hebrews 10:28 He that despiseth Moses lawe dyeth with out mercy vnder two or thre witnesses. Hebrews 10:29 Of how moche sorer punyshment suppose ye shall he be counted worthy which treadeth vnderfote the sonne of god: and counteth the bloude of the testament as an vnholy thynge wherwith he was sanctified and doth dishonoure to the sprete of grace. Hebrews 10:30 For we knowe him that hath sayde vengeaunce belongeth vnto me I will recompence sayth the lorde. And agayne: the lorde shall iudge his people. Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearfull thynge to faule into the hondes of the livynge God. Hebrews 10:32 Call to remebraunce the dayes that are passed in the which after ye had receaved light ye endured a greate fyght in adversities Hebrews 10:33 partly whill all men wondred and gased at you for the shame and trioulacion that was done vnto you and partly whill ye became companyons of the which so passed their tyme. Hebrews 10:34 For ye suffered also with my bondes and toke a worth the spoylynge of youre goodes and that with gladnes knowynge in youre selves how that ye had in heven a better and an endurynge substaunce Hebrews 10:35 Cast not awaye therfore youre confidence which hath great rewarde to recopence. Hebrews 10:36 For ye have nede of paciece that after ye have done ye will of god ye myght receave the promes. Hebrews 10:37 For yet a very lytell whyle and he that shall come will come and will not tary. Hebrews 10:38 But the iust shall live by faith. And yf he withdrawe him silfe my soule shall have no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:39 We are not whiche withdrawe oure selves vnto dampnacio but partayne to fayth to the wynnynge of the soule.
