Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 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 them that draw nigh.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:2 - Else would they not have ceased to be offered? because the worshippers, having been once cleansed, would have had no more consciousness of sins.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:3 - But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance made of sins year by year.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:4 - For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.
(cf. Psa 40:6–8 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:5 - Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith,
Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not,
But a body didst thou prepare for me;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:6 -
In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hadst no pleasure:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:7 -
Then said I, Lo, I am come (In the roll of the book it is written of me)
To do thy will, O God.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:8 - Saying above, Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein (the which are offered according to the law),
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:9 - then hath he said, Lo, I am come to do thy will. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:10 - By which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:11 - And every priest indeed standeth day by day ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, the which can never take away sins:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:12 - but he, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:13 - henceforth expecting till his enemies be made the footstool of his feet.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:14 - For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:15 - And the Holy Spirit also beareth witness to us; for after he hath said,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:16 -
This is the covenant that I will make with them
After those days, saith the Lord:
I will put my laws on their heart,
And upon their mind also will I write them;
then saith he,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:17 -
And their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:18 - Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

A New and Living Way

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:19 - Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:20 - by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:21 - and having a great priest over the house of God;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:22 - let us draw near with a true heart in fulness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience: and having our body washed with pure water,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:23 - let us hold fast the confession of our hope that it waver not; for he is faithful that promised:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:24 - and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:25 - not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day drawing nigh.

Christ or Judgment

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:26 - For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more a sacrifice for sins,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:27 - but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which shall devour the adversaries.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:28 - A man that hath set at nought Moses’ law dieth without compassion on the word of two or three witnesses:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:29 - of how much sorer punishment, think ye, shall he be judged worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant wherewith he was sanctified an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:30 - For we know him that said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:31 - It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:32 - But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were enlightened, ye endured a great conflict of sufferings;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:33 - partly, being made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, becoming partakers with them that were so used.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:34 - For ye both had compassion on them that were in bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your possessions, knowing that ye have for yourselves a better possession and an abiding one.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:35 - Cast not away therefore your boldness, which hath great recompense of reward.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:36 - For ye have need of patience, that, having done the will of God, ye may receive the promise.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:37 -
For yet a very little while,
He that cometh shall come, and shall not tarry.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:38 -
But my righteous one shall live by faith:
And if he shrink back, my soul hath no pleasure in him.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:39 - But we are not of them that shrink back unto perdition; but of them that have faith unto the saving of the soul.
