1 For the Law, since it has only aa shadow of bthe good things to come and not the very 1form of things, 2can cnever, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, dmake perfect those who draw near.
2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had aconsciousness of sins?
5 Therefore, awhen He comes into the world, He says,
“bSacrifice and offering You have not desired,
But ca body You have prepared for Me;
6 aIn whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have taken no pleasure.
7 “aThen I said, ‘Behold, I have come
(In bthe scroll of the book it is written of Me)
To do Your will, O God.’ ”
8 After saying above, “aSacrifices and offerings and bwhole burnt offerings and sacrifices cfor sin You have not desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the Law),
13 waiting from that time onward auntil His enemies be made a footstool for His feet.
15 And athe Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying,
16 “aThis 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 “aAnd their sins and their lawless deeds
I will remember no more.”
28 aAnyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 aHow much severer punishment do you think he will deserve bwho has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean cthe blood of the covenant dby which he was sanctified, and has einsulted the Spirit of grace?
37 aFor yet in a very little while,
bHe who is coming will come, and will not delay.
38 aBut My righteous one shall live by faith;
And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.
