Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:1 - For the law, having a shadow of the coming good things, not the image itself of the things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually yearly, perfect those who approach.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:8 - Above, saying Sacrifices and offerings and burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sin thou willedst not, neither tookest pleasure in (which are offered according to the law);
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:9 - then he said, Lo, I come to do thy will. He takes away the first that he may establish the second;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:17 - and their sins and their lawlessnesses I will never remember any more.

A New and Living Way

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:19 - Having therefore, brethren, boldness for entering into the holy of holies by the blood of Jesus,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:20 - the new and living way which he has dedicated for us through the veil, that is, his flesh,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:21 - and having a great priest over the house of God,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:22 - let us approach with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, sprinkled as to our hearts from a wicked conscience, and washed as to our body with pure water.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:23 - Let us hold fast the confession of the hope unwavering, (for he is faithful who has promised;)
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:24 - and let us consider one another for provoking to love and good works;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:25 - not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the custom is with some; but encouraging one another, and by so much the more as ye see the day drawing near.

Christ or Judgment

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:26 - For where we sin wilfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains any sacrifice for sins,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:27 - but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and heat of fire about to devour the adversaries.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:28 - Any one that has disregarded Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:29 - of how much worse punishment, think ye, shall he be judged worthy who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and esteemed the blood of the covenant, whereby he has been sanctified, common, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:33 - on the one hand, when ye were made a spectacle both in reproaches and afflictions; and on the other, when ye became partakers with those who were passing through them.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:34 - For ye both sympathised with prisoners and accepted with joy the plunder of your goods, knowing that ye have for yourselves a better substance, and an abiding one.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:35 - Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompense.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:36 - For ye have need of endurance in order 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 comes will come, and will not delay.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:39 - But *we* are not drawers back to perdition, but of faith to saving the soul.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
