Hebrews 10

One Sacrifice of Christ Is Sufficient

1For 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.
2Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had g  consciousness of sins? 3But h  in
Lit them there is
those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year.
4For it is j  impossible for the k  blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5Therefore 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;
6 o  In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have taken no pleasure.
7 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.’”

8After 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), 9then 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.
10By
Lit which
this will we have been x  sanctified through y  the offering of z  the body of Jesus Christ aa  once for all.

11Every priest stands daily ministering and ab  offering time after time the same sacrifices, which ac  can never take away sins; 12but 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,
13waiting from that time onward ah  until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet. 14For by one offering He has ai  perfected aj  for all time those who are
Or being sanctified
sanctified.
15And 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.”

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

A New and Living Way

19Therefore, brethren, since we ao  have confidence to ap  enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20by aq  a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through ar  the veil, that is, His flesh, 21and since we have as  a great priest at  over the house of God, 22let 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.
23Let us hold fast the az  confession of our ba  hope without wavering, for bb  He who promised is faithful; 24and let us consider how bc  to stimulate one another to love and bd  good deeds, 25not 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

26For if we go on bh  sinning willfully after receiving bi  the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27but 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? 30For we know Him who said br  Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” And again bs  The Lord will judge His people.” 31It is a bt  terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the bu  living God.

32But remember bv  the former days
Lit in which
when, after being bx  enlightened, you endured a great by  conflict of sufferings,
33partly by being bz  made a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming ca  sharers with those who were so treated. 34For 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. 35Therefore, do not throw away your ce  confidence, which has a great cf  reward. 36For 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.

39But
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.
