waiting from that time 1until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet.
For by a single offering 2he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.
And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying,
163"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,"
then he adds, 4"I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more."
Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.
195Therefore, brothers,a since we have confidence to enter 6the holy places by the blood of Jesus,
by 7the new and living way that he opened for us through 8the curtain, that is, through his flesh,
and since we have 9a great priest over the house of God,
let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts 10sprinkled clean 11from an evil conscience and our bodies 12washed with pure water.
2313Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for 14he who promised is faithful.
