The weakness of the law sacrifices.
Hebrews 10:1 For the law having a shadow of the coming good thingsnot the very image of the matters, every year, by the same sacrifices that they offer continually, is never able to make perfect those coming near, Hebrews 10:2 since, would they not have ceased to be offered, because of those serving having no more conscience of sins, having once been purified? Hebrews 10:3 but in those [sacrifices] is a remembrance of sins every year, Hebrews 10:4 for it is impossible for blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Hebrews 10:5 Wherefore, coming into the world, he saith, 'Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not will, and a body Thou didst prepare for me, Hebrews 10:6 in burnt-offerings, and concerning sin-offerings, Thou didst not delight, Hebrews 10:7 then I said, Lo, I come, (in a volume of the book it hath been written concerning me,) to do, O God, Thy will;' Hebrews 10:8 saying above'Sacrifice, and offering, and burnt-offerings, and concerning sin-offering Thou didst not will, nor delight in,'which according to the law are offered Hebrews 10:9 then he said, 'Lo, I come to do, O God, Thy will;' he doth take away the first that the second he may establish;
The sacrifice of Christ's body once offered,
Hebrews 10:10 in the which will we are having been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once, Hebrews 10:11 and every priest, indeed, hath stood daily serving, and the same sacrifices many times offering, that are never able to take away sins. Hebrews 10:12 And He, for sin one sacrifice having offeredto the end, did sit down on the right hand of God, Hebrews 10:13 as to the rest, expecting till He may place his enemies [as] his footstool,
for ever hath taken away sins.
Hebrews 10:14 for by one offering he hath perfected to the end those sanctified; Hebrews 10:15 and testify to us also doth the Holy Spirit, for after that He hath said before, Hebrews 10:16 'This [is] the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, giving My laws on their hearts, and upon their minds I will write them,' Hebrews 10:17 and 'their sins and their lawlessness I will remember no more;' Hebrews 10:18 and where forgiveness of these [is], there is no more offering for sin.
An exhortation to hold fast the faith, with patience and thanksgiving.
Hebrews 10:19 Having, therefore, brethren, boldness for the entrance into the holy places, in the blood of Jesus, Hebrews 10:20 which way he did initiate for usnew and living, through the vail, that is, his flesh Hebrews 10:21 and a high priest over the house of God, Hebrews 10:22 may we draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, having the hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and having the body bathed with pure water; Hebrews 10:23 may we hold fast the unwavering profession of the hope, (for faithful [is] He who did promise), Hebrews 10:24 and may we consider one another to provoke to love and to good works, Hebrews 10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as a custom of certain [is], but exhorting, and so much the more as ye see the day coming nigh. Hebrews 10:26 For wewilfully sinning after the receiving the full knowledge of the truthno more for sins doth there remain a sacrifice, Hebrews 10:27 but a certain fearful looking for of judgment, and fiery zeal, about to devour the opposers; Hebrews 10:28 any one who did set at nought a law of Moses, apart from mercies, by two or three witnesses, doth die, Hebrews 10:29 of how much sorer punishment shall he be counted worthy who the Son of God did trample on, and the blood of the covenant did count a common thing, in which he was sanctified, and to the Spirit of the grace did despite? Hebrews 10:30 for we have known Him who is saying, 'Vengeance [is] Mine, I will recompense, saith the Lord;' and again, 'The Lord shall judge His people;' Hebrews 10:31 fearful [is] the falling into the hands of a living God. Hebrews 10:32 And call to your remembrance the former days, in which, having been enlightened, ye did endure much conflict of sufferings, Hebrews 10:33 partly both with reproaches and tribulations being made spectacles, and partly having become partners of those so living, Hebrews 10:34 for also with my bonds ye sympathised, and the robbery of your goods with joy ye did receive, knowing that ye have in yourselves a better substance in the heavens, and an enduring one. Hebrews 10:35 Ye may not cast away, then, your boldness, which hath great recompense of reward, Hebrews 10:36 for of patience ye have need, that the will of God having done, ye may receive the promise, Hebrews 10:37 for yet a very very little, He who is coming will come, and will not tarry; Hebrews 10:38 and 'the righteous by faith shall live,' and 'if he may draw back, My soul hath no pleasure in him,' Hebrews 10:39 and we are not of those drawing back to destruction, but of those believing to a preserving of soul.
