King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come , and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect . 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.

8 Above when he said , Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; 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 the 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.
