10:1 For the law, having a shadow of the good to come, not the very image of the things, can never with the same sacrifices year by year, which they offer continually, make perfect those who draw near.
10:2 Or else wouldn`t they have ceased to be offered, because the worshippers, having been once cleansed, would have had no more consciousness of sins?
10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a memory made of sins year by year.
10:4 For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.
10:5 Therefore when he comes into the world, he says, "Sacrifice and offering you didn`t desire, But a body did you prepare for me;
10:6 In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you had no pleasure.
10:7 Then I said, `Behold, I have come (In the scroll of the book it is written of me) To do your will, God.`"
10:9 then has he said, "Behold, I have come to do your will." He takes away the first, that he may establish the second,
10:10 by which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
10:14 For by one offering he has perfected forever those who are sanctified.
10:15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after he has said,
10:17 I will remember their sins and their iniquities no more."
10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
10:19 Having therefore, brothers, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus,
10:20 by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
10:23 let us hold fast the confession of our hope unyieldingly. For he who promised is faithful.
10:24 Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good works,
10:25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as you see the Day approaching.
10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more a sacrifice for sins,
10:29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will he be judged worthy of, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
10:30 For we know him who said, "Vengeance belongs to me," says the Lord, "I will repay." Again, "The Lord will judge his people."
10:32 But remember the former days, in which, after you were enlightened, you endured a great struggle with sufferings;
10:33 partly, being exposed to both reproaches and oppressions; and partly, becoming partakers with those who were treated so.
10:34 For you both had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your possessions, knowing that you have for yourselves a better possession and an enduring one in the heavens.
10:35 Therefore don`t throw away your boldness, which has a great reward.
10:37 For yet a very little while, He who comes will come, and will not wait.
10:38 But the righteous will live by faith. If he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him."
10:39 But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the saving of the soul.
