Christ’s One Sacrifice for Sin

1 For the law, possessing a shadow of the good [things] that are about to come, not the form of things itself, [is] never able {year by year}a by means of the same sacrifices which they offer without interruption to make perfect those who draw near. 2 For otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the ones who worship, having been purified once and for all, would no longer have any consciousness of sins? 3 But in them [there is] a reminder of sins {year by year}b. 4 For [it is] impossible [for] the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 Therefore, [when he]c came into the world, he said, "Sacrifice and offering you did not want, but a body you prepared for me; 6 you did not delight in whole burnt offerings and [offerings] for sins. 7 Then I said, 'Behold, I have come-- in the roll of the book it is written about me-- to do your will, O God.' 8 [When he] says above, "Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and [offerings] for sin you did not want, nor did you delight in," which are offered according to the law, 9 then he has said, "Behold, I have come to do your will." He takes away the first in order to establish the second, 10 by which will we are made holy through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest stands every day serving and offering the same sacrifices many times, which are never able to take away sins. 12 But this one, [after he]d had offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 from now on waiting until his enemies are made a footstool for his feet. 14 For by one offering he has perfected for all time those who are made holy. 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying, 16 "This [is] the covenant that I will decree for them after those days, says the Lord: I am putting my laws on their hearts, and I will write them on their minds."e 17 [He] also [says], "Their sins and their lawless deeds I will never remember again." 18 Now where [there is] forgiveness of these, [there is] no longer an offering for sin.
