Bishops(i) 1 For the lawe, hauyng the shadow of good thynges to come, and not the very fashion of the thinges the selues, can neuer with those sacrifices whiche they offer yere by yere continually, make the commers therevnto perfect 2 For woulde not then those [sacrifices] haue ceassed to haue ben offred, because that the offerers once pourged, shoulde haue had no more conscience of sinnes 3 Neuerthelesse, in those (sacrifices) is mention made of sinnes euery yere 4 For it is not possible that the blood of Bulles & of Goates shoulde take away sinnes 5 Wherfore when he commeth into the worlde, he saith: Sacrifice and offring thou wouldest not haue, but a body hast thou ordeyned me 6 In burnt sacrifices & sinne (offerynges) thou hast had no pleasure 7 Then sayde I, lo I come (In the begynnyng of the booke it is written of me) to do thy wyll O God 8 Aboue when he saith, that sacrifice, and offeryng, and burnt offeringes, and sinne [offerynges] thou wouldest not, neither haddest pleasure [therein] (which are offered by the lawe: 9 Then sayde he, lo I come, to do thy wyll, O God. He taketh away ye first to stablyshe the seconde 10 In ye which wyll we are made holy, euen by the offeryng of the body of Iesus Christe once for all 11 And euery priest standeth dayly ministryng, & offeryng oftentymes the same sacrifices, whiche can neuer take away sinnes 12 But this man, after he hath offered one sacrifice for sinnes, is sit downe for euer on the ryght hande of God 13 From hencefoorth tarying tyl his foes be made his footstoole 14 For with one offeryng hath he made perfite for euer them that are sanctified 15 And the holy ghost also beareth vs recorde: For after that he tolde before 16 This is the couenaunt that I wyll make vnto them after those dayes, (sayth the Lorde) geuyng my lawes in their heart, and in their myndes wyl I write them 17 And their sinnes and iniquities wyll I remember no more 18 And where remission of these thinges [is] there [is] no more offering for sinne 19 Hauyng therefore brethren, libertie to enter into holy [places] in the blood of Iesus 20 By the new and lyuing way, which he hath prepared for vs through the vayle, that is to say his flesshe 21 And [seyng we haue] an hye priest ouer the house of God 22 Let vs drawe nye with a true hearte, in assuraunce of fayth, sprinkeled in our heartes from an euyll conscience, and wasshed in body with pure water 23 Let vs holde the profession of the hope without waueryng, (for he is faythfull that promised: 24 And let vs consider one another to prouoke vnto loue and good workes 25 Not forsakyng the assemblyng of our selues together, as the maner of some [is] but exhortyng one (another) and so much the more, as ye see the day approchyng 26 For yf we sinne wyllyngly after that we haue receaued the knowledge of the trueth, there remayneth no more sacrifice for sinnes 27 But a fearefull lokyng for of iudgement, and violent fire, whiche shall deuour the aduersaries 28 He that despiseth Moyses lawe, dyeth without mercie vnder two or thre witnesses 29 Of howe muche sorer punyshement (suppose ye) shall he be worthy, whiche treadeth vnder foote the sonne of God? and counteth the blood of the couenaut wherein he was sanctified, an vnholye thyng, and doth despite to the spirite of grace 30 For we knowe hym that hath sayde, vengeaunce [belongeth] vnto me, I wyl render saith the Lorde: And agayne, the Lorde shall iudge his people 31 It is a fearefull thyng to fall into the handes of the lyuyng God 32 Call to remebraunce the former dayes, in the which after ye had receaued light ye endured a great fyght of aduersities 33 Partly whyle ye were made a gasing stocke, both by reproches & afflictions, and partly whyle ye became companions of them whiche were so tossed to & fro 34 For ye suffred also with my bondes, & toke in woorth the spoylyng of your goodes with gladnesse: knowyng in your selues how that ye haue in heauen a better and an enduryng substaunce 35 Cast not awaye therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of rewarde 36 For ye haue neede of pacience, that after ye haue done the wyll of God, ye myght receaue the promise 37 For yet a very litle whyle, and he that shall come, wyll come, and wyll not tary 38 And the iuste shall lyue by fayth: And yf he withdrawe hym selfe, my soule shall haue no pleasure in hym 39 We are not of them that withdrawe our selues vnto perdition: but we parteyne vnto fayth, to the wynning of the soule
