10 For the law having aa shadow bof good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never cwith those sacrifices which they offered year by year dcontinually cmake the comers thereunto eperfect. 2 For then * would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3 But fin those sacrifices there is ga remembrance again made of sins hevery year. 4 For iit is not possible that kthe blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. 5 Wherefore lwhen he cometh into the world, he saith, mSacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but na body * hast thou prepared me: 6 In oburnt offerings and psacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, qSacrifice and offering and oburnt offerings and poffering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, rLo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will swe are sanctified through the offering of nthe body of Jesus Christ tonce for all. 11 And every priest standeth udaily wministering and offering oftentimes xthe same sacrifices, iwhich can never take away sins: 12 But this man, yafter he had offered one sacrifice for sins dfor ever, zsat down on the right hand of God; 13 aFrom henceforth expecting btill his enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one offering che hath perfected cfor ever dthem that are sanctified. 15 Whereof ethe Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 fThis is the covenant that I will gmake with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 g* And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 hHaving therefore, brethren, * boldness to enter into ithe holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living kway, which he hath * consecrated for us, through lthe veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having man high priest over nthe house of God; 22 oLet us draw near with a true heart in pfull assurance of faith, qhaving our hearts rsprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies swashed rwith pure water. 23 tLet us hold fast the uprofession of our vfaith without wavering; (for whe is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another xto provoke unto love and to good works: 25 yNot forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, zas the manner of some is; but xexhorting one another: and aso much the more, as ye see bthe day approaching.
26 For cif we sin dwilfully eafter that we have received fthe knowledge of the truth, gthere remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and hfiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 iHe that jdespised Moses’ law kdied without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 lOf how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, mwho hath trodden under foot nthe Son of God, and ohath counted pthe blood of the qcovenant, wherewith he was rsanctified, an sunholy thing, tand hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him that hath said, uVengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, vThe Lord shall judge his people. 31 It is wa fearful thing to fall into the hands of xthe living God. 32 But ycall to remembrance the former days, in which, zafter ye were illuminated, aye endured a great bfight of afflictions; 33 Partly, whilst cye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst aye became dcompanions of them that were so used. 34 For ye ddhad compassion of me ein my bonds, and ftook joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing * in yourselves that ye have gin heaven ha better and an enduring substance. 35 Cast not away therefore your iconfidence, kwhich hath great lrecompence of reward. 36 For mye have need of patience, that, after ye have done nthe will of God, oye might preceive othe promise. 37 For qyet a little while, and rhe that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38 Now sthe just shall live by faith: but if any man tdraw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of uthem who tdraw back unto perdition; but of them that wbelieve xto the saving of the soul.
