Hebrews 10

MLV(i) 1 For the law, having a shadow of the future good things, (not the same image of the matters), they are never able to complete those who come near with the same continual sacrifices which they are offering every year. 2 Otherwise, why would they not have ceased being offered? Because those who are giving-divine service to God, once having been cleansed, would then have a conscience of sins no more. 3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance of sins every year. 4 For it is impossible that the blood of oxen and male-goats should take away sins. 5 Hence when he enters into the world, he says, ‘You did not wish to have sacrifice and offering, but you, yourself, completed a body for me. 6 You were not delighted in whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices concerning sin. 7 Then I said, (as it has been written concerning me in the volume of the book), Behold, I am coming to do your will, O God.’ 8 After saying this above, You do not wish, nor were you delighted in sacrifice and offering and whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices concerning sin, (which are offered according to the law), 9 then he has said, ‘Behold, I am coming to do your will, O God.’He assassinates
the first covenant, in order that he should establish the second covenant, 10 in which will, we have been made holy through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And indeed every priest stands every day ministering and often offering the same sacrifices, which are never able to take away sins. 12 But having offered one continual sacrifice on behalf of sins, he sat down at the right hand of God; 13 furthermore waiting until his enemies should be placed under the footstool of his feet. 14 For he has completed in one continual offering those who are made holy. 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after he has said beforehand, 16 ‘This is the covenant that I will covenant for them after those days, says the Lord, I will be giving my laws upon their hearts and I will write them upon their minds.’ 17 And ‘I may never remember their sins and their lawlessness anymore.’ 18 Now where the forgiveness of these is, there is no more an offering concerning sin.
19 Therefore brethren, having boldness for the entrance into the holy-places by the blood of Jesus, 20 a way which he inaugurated for us, a fresh and living way, through the curtain, that is, his flesh; 21 and having a great priest over the house of God; 22 let us come near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, our hearts having been sprinkled away from an evil conscience and our body, having been fully-washed in clean water. 23 We should hold-onto the confession of our hope–unwavering; for he who promised is faithful. 24 And we should consider one another for motivating each other from love and from good works; 25 not forsaking our own gathering-together, just-as the custom is with some, but encouraging one another, and so-much more, inasmuch as you are seeing the day drawing near.
26 For when we sin willfully after the receiving of the full knowledge of the truth, then a sacrifice is left no more for us concerning sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectancy of judgment and a zeal of fire which is about to eat the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected the Law of Moses, dies without mercy upon the word of two or three witnesses. 29 How much worse punishment, do you think he will be deemed worthy of, after having trampled under foot the Son of God, and having deemed the blood of the covenant in which he was made holy as common, and having insulted the Spirit of the grace? 30 For we know the one who said, ‘Vengeance is for me. I will be repaying says the Lord.’And again, ‘ The Lord will judge his people.’ 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But remind yourselves of the former days, when you were enlightened, in which you endured a large conflict of sufferings; 33 in this thing indeed, makes you a spectacle both by reproaches and afflictions, but in this thing, you became partners of those who conducted themselves so. 34 For you also sympathized together with me in my bonds, and you accepted the plunder of your possessions with joy, knowing that you have for yourselves a better possession in the heavens and an abiding one. 35 Therefore do not cast away your boldness, which has great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, in order that, having done the will of God, you may get the promise for yourselves. 37 ‘For still a little while, O how-much? O how-much? He who is coming will be coming and will not delay. 38 But my righteous one will be living from faith and if he retreats back, my soul does not delight in him.’ 39 But we are not from this retreating back leading to destruction, but we are from the faith leading to the preservation of the soul.
