The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 For the law, having a shadow of the coming good things, not the image itself of the things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually yearly, perfect those who approach. 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 indeed have ceased being offered, on account of the worshippers once purged having no longer any conscience of sins? 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 these [there is] a calling to mind of sins yearly. 3 But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins,

7 Then I said, Lo, I come (in [the] roll of the book it is written of 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 Above, saying Sacrifices and offerings and burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sin thou willedst not, neither tookest pleasure in (which are offered according to 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 he said, Lo, I come to do thy will. He takes 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 have been 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.
11 And every priest stands daily ministering, and offering often 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 *he*, having offered one sacrifice for sins, sat down in perpetuity 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 waiting from henceforth until his enemies be set [for the] footstool of his feet. 13 Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool,
14 For by one offering he has perfected in perpetuity the sanctified. 14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
15 And the Holy Spirit also bears us witness [of it]; for after what was said: 15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:
16 This [is] the covenant which I will establish towards them after those days, saith [the] Lord: Giving my laws into their hearts, I will write them also in their understandings; 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 lawlessnesses I will never remember any more. 17 Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."
18 But where there [is] remission of these, [there is] no longer a sacrifice for sin. 18 And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness for entering into the [holy of] holies by the blood of Jesus, 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
20 the new and living way which he has dedicated for us through the veil, that is, his flesh, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,
21 and [having] a great priest over the house of God, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
22 let us approach with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, sprinkled as to our hearts from a wicked conscience, and washed as to our body 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 hold fast the confession of the hope unwavering, (for he [is] faithful who has promised;) 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
24 and let us consider one another for provoking to love and 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 the custom [is] with some; but encouraging [one another], and by so much the more as ye see the day drawing near. 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 where we sin wilfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains any 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 a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and heat of fire about to devour the adversaries. 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
28 Any one that has disregarded Moses' law dies without mercy on [the testimony of] two or three witnesses: 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 of how much worse punishment, think ye, shall he be judged worthy who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and esteemed the blood of the covenant, whereby he has been sanctified, common, and has insulted the Spirit of 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 we know him that said, To me [belongs] vengeance; *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."
31 [It is] a fearful thing falling into [the] hands of [the] living God. 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But call to mind the earlier days in which, having been enlightened, ye endured 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 on the one hand, when ye were made a spectacle both in reproaches and afflictions; and on the other, when ye became partakers with those who were passing through them. 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 ye both sympathised with prisoners and accepted with joy the plunder of your goods, knowing that ye have for yourselves a better substance, and an abiding 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 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompense. 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36 For ye have need of endurance in order that, having done the will of God, 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 little while he that comes will come, and will not delay. 37 For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay.
38 But the just shall live by faith; and, if he draw back, my soul does not take 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 But *we* are not drawers back to perdition, but of faith to saving [the] soul. 39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.
