The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)

8 Above, when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt-offerings and [offering] for sin thou wouldst not, neither hadst pleasure [in them]; which are offered by the law; 8 First he said, "Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them" (although the law required them to be made).
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 9 Then he said, "Here I am, I have come to do your will." He sets aside the first to establish the second.
10 By which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once [for all]. 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds."
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 17 Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."
18 Now where remission of these [is], [there is] no more offering for sin. 18 And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
