1For the lawhaving a shadow of good things to come , and not the veryimage of the things,cannever with thosesacrificeswhich they offered year by yearcontinuallymake the comers thereuntoperfect .
For then would theynot have ceased to be offered ? because that the worshippersoncepurged should have hadnomoreconscience of sins.3Butinthose sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sinseveryyear.4For it is not possible that the blood of bullsand of goats should take awaysins.5Wherefore when he comethinto the world, he saith , Sacrificeandoffering thou wouldestnot,but a body hast thou preparedme:6
In burnt offeringsand sacrifices forsin thou hast hadnopleasure .
7Then said I , Lo , I come (in the volume of the book it is writtenof me,) to dothywill, O God.8Above when he said , Sacrificeandofferingand burnt offeringsand offering forsin thou wouldestnot,neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offeredby the law;9Then said he , Lo , I come to dothywill, O God. He taketh away the first,that he may establish the second.10By the whichwill we aresanctifiedthrough the offering of the body of JesusChristonce for all.
11Andeveryprieststandethdailyministeringandofferingoftentimes the samesacrifices,whichcannever take awaysins:12But this man, after he had offeredonesacrificeforsinsforever, sat downon the right hand of God;13
From henceforthexpectingtillhisenemies be madehisfootstool .
14For by oneoffering he hath perfectedforever them that are sanctified .
15Whereof the HolyGhostalso is a witness to us:forafter that he had said before ,
16This is the covenantthat I will makewiththemafterthosedays,saith the Lord, I will putmylawsintotheirhearts,andintheirminds will I writethem;17Andtheirasinsandiniquitieswill I remembernomore.18Nowwhereremission of these is, there is no moreofferingforsin.19Havingtherefore,brethren,boldnessbtoenter into the holiestby the blood of Jesus,20
By a newandlivingway,which he hath consecratedc for us,through the veil, that is to say , hisflesh;21And having an highpriestover the house of God;22
Let us draw nearwith a trueheartin full assurance of faith,having our heartssprinkledfrom an evilconscience,and our bodieswashed with purewater.23
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised ;)
24And let us consider one anothertoprovoke unto loveand to goodworks:25Notforsaking the assembling of ourselvestogether,as the manner of some is; butexhorting one another: and so much the more,as ye see the dayapproaching .
26For if wesinwilfullyafter that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no moresacrificeforsins,27But a certainfearful looking for of judgmentandfieryindignation, which shalldevour the adversaries.28He that despisedMoses'lawdiedwithoutmercyundertwoorthreewitnesses:29
Of how muchsorerpunishment, suppose ye , shall he be thought worthy , who hath trodden under foot the Son of God,and hath counted the blood of the covenant,wherewithhe was sanctified , an unholy thing,and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?30For we know him that hath said , Vengeance belongeth unto me,I will recompense , saith the Lord.Andagain, The Lord shall judgehispeople.31
It is a fearful thing to fallinto the hands of the livingGod.32But call to remembrance the formerdays,inwhich, after ye were illuminated , ye endured a greatfight of afflictions;33Partly , whilst ye were made a gazingstockboth by reproachesandafflictions;andpartly, whilst ye becamecompanions of them that weresoused .
34Forye had compassion of me in mybonds,andtookjoyfullythespoiling of yourgoods , knowinginyourselvesd that ye haveinheaven a betterand an enduringsubstance.35Castnotawaythereforeyourconfidence,whichhathgreat recompence of reward.36For ye haveneed of patience,that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.37Foryet a littlewhile , and he that shall come will come , andwillnottarry .
38Now the just shall livebyfaith:butif any man draw back , mysoul shall havenopleasureinhim.39Butwearenot of them who draw backuntoperdition;but of them that believeto the saving of the soul.
