Therefore, when Christ came into the world,1 he said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me;26
with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.
Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the scroll3-- I have come to do your will, O God.' "a48
First he said, "Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them"5 (although the law required them to be made).
Then he said, "Here I am, I have come to do your will."6 He sets aside the first to establish the second.
And by that will, we have been made holy7 through the sacrifice of the body8 of Jesus Christ once for all.9
