10 For the law having a shadow of the destined good things Not the very image of the things They can never with the same sacrifices which year by year they offer evermore Make them who approach perfect;
2 Else would they not in that case have ceased being offered, By reason of those rendering the divine service having no further conscience at all of sins Being once for all purified?
3 But in them is a recalling to mind of sins year by year,
4 For it is impossible for blood of bulls and goats to be taking away sins.
5 Wherefore coming into the world he saith: Sacrifice and offering thou willedst not, But a body hast thou fitted for me,—
6 In whole-burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sins thou didst not delight:
7 Then said I—Lo! I am come,—In the heading of the scroll it is written concerning me,—To do, O God, thy will.
8 Higher up saying—Sacrifices and offerings, and whole-burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sins thou willedst not neither delightedst in,—The which according to the law are offered
9 Then hath he said—Lo! I am come! To do thy will:—He taketh away the first, that the second he may establish:
10 By which will we have been made holy Through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest indeed standeth daily publicly ministering, And the same sacrifices ofttimes offering, The which never can clear away sins;
12 But this priest having offered one sacrifice for sins evermore Sat down on the right hand of God:
13 As for the rest waiting—Until his foes be made his footstool;
14 For by one offering hath he perfected for evermore them who are being made holy.
15 But even the Holy Spirit beareth us witness; For after having said—
16 This is the covenant which I will covenant unto them After these days, saith the Lord,—Giving my laws upon their hearts, Upon their understandings also will I inscribe them
17 [He] also [saith]—Of their sins, and of their lawlessnesses I will in nowise be mindful any more.
18 But wherever a remission of these is there is no further offering for sins.
19 Having therefore, brethren, freedom of speech for the entrance through the Holy place by the blood of Jesus,
20 Which entrance he hath consecrated for us as a way recent and living Through the veil that is his flesh,—
21 And having a great priest over the house of God
22 Let us approach with a genuine heart in full assurance of faith, Having been sprinkled as to our hearts from an evil conscience, And bathed as to our bodies with pure water;
23 Let us hold fast the confession of the hope without wavering,—For faithful is he that hath promised;
24 And let us attentively consider one another to provoke unto love and noble works,—
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together According to the custom of some, But exhorting, And by so much the more as this By as much as ye behold the day drawing near.
26 For if by choice we be sinning after the receiving of the full-knowledge of the truth No longer for sins is there left over a sacrifice,
27 But some fearful reception of judgment and fiery jealousy About to devour the opposers.
28 Any one having set aside a law of Moses Apart from compassions upon [the testimony of] two or three witnesses dieth:
29 Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye shall he be accounted worthy, Who hath trampled underfoot the Son of God And the blood of the covenant hath esteemed a profane thing by which he had been made holy, And unto the Spirit of favour hath offered wanton insult?
30 For we know him that hath said—To me belongeth avenging, I will recompense; and again—The Lord will judge his people.
31 A fearful thing [it is] to fall into the hands of a Living God.
32 But be calling to mind the former days, In which once ye were illuminated, A great combat of sufferings ye endured;—
33 Partly indeed because both with reproaches and tribulations ye were being made a spectacle, But partly because into fellowship with them who were so involved ye were brought;—
34 For even with them who were in bonds ye sympathised, And unto the seizure of your goods with joy ye bade welcome,—Knowing that ye have yourselves for a better possession and an abiding.
35 Do not then cast away your freedom of speech,—The which hath a great recompense.
36 For of endurance ye have need In order that the will of God having done Ye may bear away the promise.
37 For yet a little while how short! how short! The Coming One will be here and will not tarry;
38 But my righteous one by faith shall live, And if he draw back my soul delighteth not in him.
39 We however are not of a drawing back unto destruction, But of faith unto an acquisition of life.
