there may be other offerings, as of praise and thanksgiving, but none for sin; "there is no need", as the Syriac version; or there is not required, as the Arabic version; there is no need of the reiteration of Christ's sacrifice, nor will he be offered up any more, nor of the repetition of legal sacrifices, nor ought they to continue any longer. The Jews themselves say F23, that
``in the time to come (i.e. in the times of the Messiah) all offerings shall cease, but the sacrifice of praise.''And one of their writers says F24, when
