Hebrews 10

LEB 1 For the law, possessing a shadow of the good [things] that are about to come, not the form of things itself, [is] never able {year by year} by means of the same sacrifices which they offer without interruption to make perfect those who draw near. NIV 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. LEB 2 For otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the ones who worship, having been purified once and for all, would no longer have any consciousness of sins? NIV 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. LEB 3 But in them [there is] a reminder of sins {year by year}. NIV 3 But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins, LEB 4 For [it is] impossible [for] the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. NIV 4 because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. LEB 5 Therefore, [when he] came into the world, he said, "Sacrifice and offering you did not want, but a body you prepared for me; NIV 5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; LEB 6 you did not delight in whole burnt offerings and [offerings] for sins. NIV 6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased. LEB 7 Then I said, 'Behold, I have come-- in the roll of the book it is written about me-- to do your will, O God.' NIV 7 Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the scroll-- I have come to do your will, O God.' " LEB 8 [When he] says above, "Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and [offerings] for sin you did not want, nor did you delight in,"<note: Various phrases from the quotation of Ps 40:6 in Heb 10:5-6 are repeated here> which are offered according to the law, NIV 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). LEB 9 then he has said, "Behold, I have come to do your will."<note: A repetition of Ps 40:8 from Heb 10:7; many later manuscripts add "O God," making the quotation conform to Heb 10:7 more closely> He takes away the first in order to establish the second, NIV 9 Then he said, "Here I am, I have come to do your will." He sets aside the first to establish the second. LEB 10 by which will we are made holy through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. NIV 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. LEB 11 And every priest stands every day serving and offering the same sacrifices many times, which are never able to take away sins. NIV 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. LEB 12 But this one, [after he] had offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, NIV 12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. LEB 13 from now on waiting until his enemies are made a footstool for his feet. NIV 13 Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, LEB 14 For by one offering he has perfected for all time those who are made holy. NIV 14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. LEB 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying, NIV 15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: LEB 16 "This [is] the covenant that I will decree for them after those days, says the Lord: I am putting my laws on their hearts, and I will write them on their minds." NIV 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." LEB 17 [He] also [says], "Their sins and their lawless deeds I will never remember again."<note: A quotation from Jer 31:34> NIV 17 Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more." LEB 18 Now where [there is] forgiveness of these, [there is] no longer an offering for sin. NIV 18 And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin. LEB 19 Therefore, brothers, [since we] have confidence for the entrance into the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, NIV 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, LEB 20 [by the] new and living way which he inaugurated for us through the curtain, that is, his flesh, NIV 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, LEB 21 and [since we have] a great priest over the house of God, NIV 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, LEB 22 let us approach with a true heart in the full assurance of faith, our hearts sprinkled [clean] from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. NIV 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. LEB 23 Let us hold fast to the confession of [our] hope without wavering, for the one who promised [is] faithful. NIV 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. LEB 24 And let us think about {how to stir one another up to love} and good works, NIV 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. LEB 25 not abandoning {our meeting together}, as [is] the habit of some, but encouraging [each other], and by so much more as you see the day drawing near. NIV 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. LEB 26 For [if] we keep on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, NIV 26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, LEB 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment and a fury of fire that is about to consume the adversaries. NIV 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. LEB 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses dies without mercy on [the testimony of] two or three witnesses. NIV 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. LEB 29 How much worse punishment do you think the person will be considered worthy of who treats with disdain the Son of God and who considers ordinary the blood of the covenant by which he was made holy and who insults the Spirit of grace? NIV 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? LEB 30 For we know the one who said, "Vengeance [is] mine, I will repay,"<note: A quotation from Deut 32:35> and again, "The Lord will judge his people."<note: A quotation from Deut 32:36> NIV 30 For we know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge his people." LEB 31 [It is] a terrifying [thing] to fall into the hands of the living God. NIV 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. LEB 32 But remember the former days in which, [after you] were enlightened, you endured a great struggle with sufferings, NIV 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. LEB 33 sometimes being publicly exposed both to insults and to afflictions, and sometimes becoming sharers with those who were treated in this way. NIV 33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. LEB 34 For you both sympathized with the prisoners and put up with the seizure of your belongings with joy [because you] knew that you yourselves had a better and permanent possession. NIV 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. LEB 35 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has great reward. NIV 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. LEB 36 For you have need of endurance, in order that [after you] have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. NIV 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. LEB 37 For yet "a very, very little [while], [and] the one who is coming will come and will not delay. NIV 37 For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay. LEB 38 But my righteous one will live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul is not well pleased with him." NIV 38 But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him." LEB 39 But we are not among those who shrink back to destruction, but among those who have faith to the preservation of [our] souls. NIV 39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.
