Hebrews, Chapter 10

10:1 For the law having a shadow of the good [things] to come, not the very image of the things, can never with the same sacrifices year by year, which they offer continually, make perfect those who draw near.
10:2 Or else would they not have ceased to be offered? Because the worshipers, having been once cleansed, would have had no more consciousness of sins.
10:3 But in those [sacrifices] there is a remembrance made of sins year by year.
10:4 For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.
10:5 Therefore when he comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering you did not want, But you prepared a body for me;
10:6 In whole burnt-offerings and [sacrifices] for sin you had no pleasure:
10:7 Then I said, Look, I have come (In the roll of the book it is written of me) To do your will, O God.
10:8 Saying above, Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt-offerings and [sacrifices] for sin you did not want, neither had pleasure in them (which are offered according to the law),
10:9 then he has said, Look, I have come to do your will. He takes away the first, that he may establish the second.
10:10 By whose will, we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
10:11 And every priest indeed stands day by day ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, the which can never take away sins:
10:12 but he, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God;
10:13 from now on expecting until his enemies are made the footstool of his feet.
10:14 For by one offering he has perfected forever those who are sanctified.
10:15 And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after he has said,
10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them After those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws on their heart, And on their mind also I will write them; [then he says,]
10:17 And their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more.
10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
10:19 Having therefore, brothers, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus,
10:20 by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
10:21 and [having] a great priest over the house of God;
10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and having our body washed in pure water,
10:23 let us hold fast the confession of the unwavering hope; for he who promised is faithful:
10:24 and let us consider one another to provoke to love and good works;
10:25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting [one another]; and so much the more, as you+ see the day drawing near.
10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more a sacrifice for sins,
10:27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which will devour the adversaries.
10:28 A man who has set at nothing Moses' law dies without compassion on [the word of] two or three witnesses:
10:29 of how much sorer punishment, do you+ think, he will be judged worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified a common thing, and has done despite to the Spirit of grace?
10:30 For we know him who said, Vengeance belongs to me, I will recompense. And again, The Lord will judge his people.
10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
10:32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after you+ were enlightened, you+ endured a great conflict of sufferings;
10:33 partly, being made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, becoming partners with those who were so used.
10:34 For you+ both had compassion on those who were in bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your+ possessions, knowing that you+ yourselves have a better possession and a staying one.
10:35 Do not cast away therefore your+ boldness, which has great recompense of reward.
10:36 For you+ have need of patience, that, having done the will of God, you+ may receive the promise.
10:37 For yet a very little while, He who comes will come, and will not tarry.
10:38 But my righteous one will live by faith: And if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.
10:39 But we are not of those who shrink back to perdition; but of those who have faith to the saving of the soul.
