And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Tools specific to Heb 10:11

Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:12

But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:13

and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool.

Tools specific to Heb 10:14

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:14

For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

Tools specific to Heb 10:15

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:15

The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:

Tools specific to Heb 10:16

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:16

“This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:17

Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.”[fn]

Tools specific to Heb 10:18

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:18

And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.

Tools specific to Heb 10:19

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:19

Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,

Tools specific to Heb 10:20

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:20

by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,

Tools specific to Heb 10:21

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:21

and since we have a great priest over the house of God,

Tools specific to Heb 10:22

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 10:22
