5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world,w he said:
“Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
but a body you prepared for me;x
you were not pleased.
7 Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scrolly—
8 First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”a—though they were offered in accordance with the law. 9 Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.”b He sets aside the first to establish the second. 10 And by that will, we have been made holyc through the sacrifice of the bodyd of Jesus Christ once for all.e
Psalm 40:6–8 (see Septuagint)
