Hebrews 10

One Sacrifice of Christ Is Sufficient

For the Law, since it has only a a shadow of b the good things to come and not the very
Lit image
form of things
Two early mss read they can
can e never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year f make perfect those who draw near.
Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had g consciousness of sins? But h in
Lit them there is
those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year.
For it is j impossible for the k blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Therefore l when He comes into the world, He says, m Sacrifice and offering You have not desired,
But n  a body You have prepared for Me;
o  In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have taken no pleasure.
p Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come
( In q  the scroll of the book it is written of Me)
To do Your will, O God.’”

After saying above r Sacrifices and offerings and s  whole burnt offerings and sacrifices t  for sin You have not desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the Law), then He
Lit has said
said v Behold, I have come to do Your will.” He takes away the first in order to establish the second.
10 By
Lit which
this will we have been x sanctified through y the offering of z the body of Jesus Christ aa once for all.

11 Every priest stands daily ministering and ab offering time after time the same sacrifices, which ac can never take away sins; 12 but He, having offered one sacrifice ad for
Or sins, forever sat down
sins af for all time ag  sat down at the right hand of God,
13 waiting from that time onward ah  until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet. 14 For by one offering He has ai perfected aj for all time those who are
Or being sanctified
15 And al the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying, 16  am This is the covenant that I will make with them
After those days, says the Lord:
I will put My laws upon their heart,
And on their mind I will write them,”
He then says,
17  an And their sins and their lawless deeds
I will remember no more.”

18 Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin.

A New and Living Way

19 Therefore, brethren, since we ao have confidence to ap enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by aq a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through ar the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and since we have as a great priest at over the house of God, 22 let us au draw near with a
Lit true
sincere heart in aw full assurance of faith, having our hearts ax sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies ay washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the az confession of our ba hope without wavering, for bb He who promised is faithful; 24 and let us consider how bc to stimulate one another to love and bd good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own be assembling together, as is the habit of some, but bf encouraging one another; and all the more as you see bg the day drawing near.

Christ or Judgment

26 For if we go on bh sinning willfully after receiving bi the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a terrifying expectation of bj judgment and bk  the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. 28  bl Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29  bm How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve bn who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean bo the blood of the covenant bp by which he was sanctified, and has bq insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said br Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” And again bs The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a bt terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the bu living God.

32 But remember bv the former days
Lit in which
when, after being bx enlightened, you endured a great by conflict of sufferings,
33 partly by being bz made a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming ca sharers with those who were so treated. 34 For you cb showed sympathy to the prisoners and accepted cc joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves cd a better possession and a lasting one. 35 Therefore, do not throw away your ce confidence, which has a great cf reward. 36 For you have need of cg endurance, so that when you have ch done the will of God, you may ci receive
Lit the promise
what was promised.
37  ck  For yet in a very little while,
cl  He who is coming will come, and will not delay.
38  cm  But My righteous one shall live by faith;
And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.

39 But
Lit we are not of shrinking back...but of faith
we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the
Or possessing
preserving of the soul.
