1 For the Torah has in it a shadow of the good things to come, but not the actual manifestation of the originals. Therefore, it can never, by means of the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, bring to the goal those who approach the Holy Place to offer them. 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 Otherwise, wouldn't the offering of those sacrifices have ceased? For if the people performing the service had been cleansed once and for all, they would no longer have sins on their conscience. 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 No, it is quite the contrary - in these sacrifices is a reminder of sins, year after year. 3 But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins,
4 For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins. 4 because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
5 This is why, on coming into the world, he says, "It has not been your will to have an animal sacrifice and a meal offering; rather, you have prepared for me a body. 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 No, you have not been pleased with burnt offerings and sin offerings. 6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.
7 Then I said, 'Look! In the scroll of the book it is written about me. I have come to do your 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 In saying first, "You neither willed nor were pleased with animal sacrifices, meal offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings," things which are offered in accordance with the Torah; 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 and then, "Look, I have come to do your will"; he takes away the first system in order to set up 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 It is in connection with this will that we have been separated for God and made holy, once and for all, through the offering of Yeshua the Messiah's body. 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 Now every cohen stands every day doing his service, offering over and over the same sacrifices, which can never 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 But this one, after he had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, sat down at 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 from then on to wait until his enemies be made a footstool for his feet. 13 Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool,
14 For by a single offering he has brought to the goal for all time those who are being set apart for God and made holy. 14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
15 And the Ruach HaKodesh too bears witness to us; for after saying, 15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:
16 " 'This is the covenant which I will make with them after those days,' says ADONAI: 'I will put my Torah on their hearts, and write it on their minds . . . ,' " 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 he then adds, " 'And their sins and their wickednesses I will remember no more.' " 17 Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."
18 Now where there is forgiveness for these, an offering for sins is no longer needed. 18 And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin.
19 So, brothers, we have confidence to use the way into the Holiest Place opened by the blood of Yeshua. 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
20 He inaugurated it for us as a new and living way through the parokhet, by means of his flesh. 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,
21 We also have a great cohen over God's household. 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
22 Therefore, let us approach the Holiest Place with a sincere heart, in the full assurance that comes from trusting - with our hearts sprinkled clean from a bad conscience and our bodies washed 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 Let us continue holding fast to the hope we acknowledge, without wavering; for the One who made the promise is trustworthy. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
24 And let us keep paying attention to one another, in order to spur each other on to love and good deeds, 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
25 not neglecting our own congregational meetings, as some have made a practice of doing, but, rather, encouraging each other. And let us do this all the more as you see the Day approaching. 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 if we deliberately continue to sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,
27 but only the terrifying prospect of Judgment, of raging fire that will consume the enemies. 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
28 Someone who disregards the Torah of Moshe is put to death without mercy on the word of two or three witnesses.p 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 Think how much worse will be the punishment deserved by someone who has trampled underfoot the Son of God; who has treated as something common the blood of the covenantq which made him holy; and who has insulted the Spirit, giver of God's grace! 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 the One we know is the One who said, "Vengeance is my responsibility; I will repay," and then said, "ADONAI will 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."
31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God! 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But remember the earlier days, when, after you had received the light, you endured a hard struggle with 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 Sometimes you were publicly disgraced and persecuted, while at other times you stood loyally by those who were treated this way. 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 you shared the sufferings of those who had been put in prison. Also when your possessions were seized, you accepted it gladly; since you knew that what you possessed was better and would last forever. 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 So don't throw away that courage of yours, which carries with it such a great reward. 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36 For you need to hold out; so that, by having done what God wills, you may receive what he has promised. 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
37 For "There is so, so little time! The One coming will indeed come, he will not delay. 37 For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay.
38 But the person who is righteous will live his life by trusting, and if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him." 38 But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him."
39 However, we are not the kind who shrink back and are destroyed; on the contrary, we keep trusting and thus preserve our lives! 39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.
