Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 For the law having a shadow of the coming good things -- not the very image of the matters, every year, by the same sacrifices that they offer continually, is never able to make perfect those coming near, 1 The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming--not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship.
2 since, would they not have ceased to be offered, because of those serving having no more conscience of sins, having once been purified? 2 If it could, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins.
3 but in those [sacrifices] is a remembrance of sins every year, 3 But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins,
4 for it is impossible for blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 4 because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
5 Wherefore, coming into the world, he saith, `Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not will, and a body Thou didst prepare for me, 5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me;
6 in burnt-offerings, and concerning sin-offerings, Thou didst not delight, 6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.
7 then I said, Lo, I come, (in a volume of the book it hath been written concerning me,) to do, O God, Thy will;' 7 Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the scroll-- I have come to do your will, O God.' "
8 saying above -- `Sacrifice, and offering, and burnt-offerings, and concerning sin-offering Thou didst not will, nor delight in,' -- which according to the law are offered -- 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 he said, `Lo, I come to do, O God, Thy will;' he doth take away the first that the second he may establish; 9 Then he said, "Here I am, I have come to do your will." He sets aside the first to establish the second.
10 in the which will we are having been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once, 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 and every priest, indeed, hath stood daily serving, and the same sacrifices many times offering, that are never able to take away sins. 11 Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
12 And He, for sin one sacrifice having offered -- to the end, did sit down on the right hand of God, -- 12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God.
13 as to the rest, expecting till He may place his enemies [as] his footstool, 13 Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool,
14 for by one offering he hath perfected to the end those sanctified; 14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
15 and testify to us also doth the Holy Spirit, for after that He hath said before, 15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:
16 `This [is] the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, giving My laws on their hearts, and upon their minds I will write them,' 16 "This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds."
17 and `their sins and their lawlessness I will remember no more;' 17 Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."
18 and where forgiveness 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 for the entrance into the holy places, in the blood of Jesus, 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
20 which way he did initiate for us -- new and living, through the vail, that is, his flesh -- 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,
21 and a high priest over the house of God, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
22 may we draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, having the hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and having the body bathed with pure water; 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
23 may we hold fast the unwavering profession of the hope, (for faithful [is] He who did promise), 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
24 and may we consider one another to provoke to love and to good works, 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as a custom of certain [is], but exhorting, and so much the more as ye see the day coming nigh. 25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
26 For we -- willfully sinning after the receiving the full knowledge of the truth -- no more for sins doth there remain a sacrifice, 26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,

28 any one who did set at nought a law of Moses, apart from mercies, by two or three witnesses, doth die, 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 of how much sorer punishment shall he be counted worthy who the Son of God did trample on, and the blood of the covenant did count a common thing, in which he was sanctified, and to the Spirit of the grace did despite? 29 How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?
30 for we have known Him who is saying, `Vengeance [is] Mine, I will recompense, saith the Lord;' and again, `The Lord shall judge His people;' -- 30 For we know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge his people."

32 And call to your remembrance the former days, in which, having been enlightened, ye did endure much conflict of sufferings, 32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering.
33 partly both with reproaches and tribulations being made spectacles, and partly having become partners of those so living, 33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated.
34 for also with my bonds ye sympathised, and the robbery of your goods with joy ye did receive, knowing that ye have in yourselves a better substance in the heavens, and an enduring one. 34 You sympathized with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.
35 Ye may not cast away, then, your boldness, which hath great recompense of reward, 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36 for of patience ye have need, that the will of God having done, ye may receive the promise, 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
37 for yet a very very little, He who is coming will come, and will not tarry; 37 For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay.
38 and `the righteous by faith shall live,' and `if he may draw back, My soul hath no pleasure in him,' 38 But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him."
39 and we are not of those drawing back to destruction, but of those believing to a preserving of soul. 39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.
