Hebrews 10

BBE 1 For the law, being only a poor copy of the future good things, and not the true image of those things, is never able to make the people who come to the altar every year with the same offerings completely clean. GNT 1 The Jewish Law is not a full and faithful model of the real things; it is only a faint outline of the good things to come. The same sacrifices are offered forever, year after year. How can the Law, then, by means of these sacrifices make perfect the people who come to God? BBE 2 For if this had been possible, would there not have been an end of those offerings, because the worshippers would have been made completely clean and would have been no longer conscious of sins? GNT 2 If the people worshiping God had really been purified from their sins, they would not feel guilty of sin any more, and all sacrifices would stop. BBE 3 But year by year there is a memory of sins in those offerings. GNT 3 As it is, however, the sacrifices serve year after year to remind people of their sins. BBE 4 Because it is not possible for the blood of oxen and goats to take away sins. GNT 4 For the blood of bulls and goats can never take away sins. BBE 5 So that when he comes into the world, he says, You had no desire for offerings, but you made a body ready for me; GNT 5 For this reason, when Christ was about to come into the world, he said to God: "You do not want sacrifices and offerings, but you have prepared a body for me. BBE 6 You had no joy in burned offerings or in offerings for sin. GNT 6 You are not pleased with animals burned whole on the altar or with sacrifices to take away sins. BBE 7 Then I said, See, I have come to do your pleasure, O God (as it is said of me in the roll of the book). GNT 7 Then I said, "Here I am, to do your will, O God, just as it is written of me in the book of the Law.' " BBE 8 After saying, You had no desire for offerings, for burned offerings or offerings for sin (which are made by the law) and you had no pleasure in them, GNT 8 First he said, "You neither want nor are you pleased with sacrifices and offerings or with animals burned on the altar and the sacrifices to take away sins." He said this even though all these sacrifices are offered according to the Law. BBE 9 Then he said, See, I have come to do your pleasure. He took away the old order, so that he might put the new order in its place. GNT 9 Then he said, "Here I am, O God, to do your will." So God does away with all the old sacrifices and puts the sacrifice of Christ in their place. BBE 10 By that pleasure we have been made holy, by the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for ever. GNT 10 Because Jesus Christ did what God wanted him to do, we are all purified from sin by the offering that he made of his own body once and for all. BBE 11 And every priest takes his place at the altar day by day, doing what is necessary, and making again and again the same offerings which are never able to take away sins. GNT 11 Every Jewish priest performs his services every day and offers the same sacrifices many times; but these sacrifices can never take away sins. BBE 12 But when Jesus had made one offering for sins for ever, he took his place at the right hand of God; GNT 12 Christ, however, offered one sacrifice for sins, an offering that is effective forever, and then he sat down at the right side of God. BBE 13 And has been waiting there from that time, till all who are against him are made a foot-rest for his feet. GNT 13 There he now waits until God puts his enemies as a footstool under his feet. BBE 14 Because by one offering he has made complete for ever those who are made holy. GNT 14 With one sacrifice, then, he has made perfect forever those who are purified from sin. BBE 15 And the Holy Spirit is a witness for us: for after he had said, GNT 15 And the Holy Spirit also gives us his witness. First he says, BBE 16 This is the agreement which I will make with them after those days, says the Lord; I will put my laws in their hearts, writing them in their minds; he said, GNT 16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them in the days to come, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts and write them on their minds." BBE 17 And I will keep no more memory of their sins and of their evil-doings. GNT 17 And then he says, "I will not remember their sins and evil deeds any longer." BBE 18 Now where there is forgiveness of these, there is no more offering for sin. GNT 18 So when these have been forgiven, an offering to take away sins is no longer needed. BBE 19 So then, my brothers, being able to go into the holy place without fear, because of the blood of Jesus, GNT 19 We have, then, my friends, complete freedom to go into the Most Holy Place by means of the death of Jesus. BBE 20 By the new and living way which he made open for us through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; GNT 20 He opened for us a new way, a living way, through the curtain - that is, through his own body. BBE 21 And having a great priest over the house of God, GNT 21 We have a great priest in charge of the house of God. BBE 22 Let us go in with true hearts, in certain faith, having our hearts made free from the sense of sin and our bodies washed with clean water: GNT 22 So let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, with hearts that have been purified from a guilty conscience and with bodies washed with clean water. BBE 23 Let us keep the witness of our hope strong and unshaking, for he is true who has given his word: GNT 23 Let us hold on firmly to the hope we profess, because we can trust God to keep his promise. BBE 24 And let us be moving one another at all times to love and good works; GNT 24 Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good. BBE 25 Not giving up our meetings, as is the way of some, but keeping one another strong in faith; and all the more because you see the day coming near. GNT 25 Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing. Instead, let us encourage one another all the more, since you see that the Day of the Lord is coming nearer. BBE 26 For if we do evil on purpose after we have had the knowledge of what is true, there is no more offering for sins, GNT 26 For there is no longer any sacrifice that will take away sins if we purposely go on sinning after the truth has been made known to us. BBE 27 But only a great fear of being judged, and of the fire of wrath which will be the destruction of the haters of God. GNT 27 Instead, all that is left is to wait in fear for the coming Judgment and the fierce fire which will destroy those who oppose God! BBE 28 A man who has gone against the law of Moses is put to death without pity on the word of two or three witnesses: GNT 28 Anyone who disobeys the Law of Moses is put to death without any mercy when judged guilty from the evidence of two or more witnesses. BBE 29 But will not the man by whom the Son of God has been crushed under foot, and the blood of the agreement with which he was washed clean has been taken as an unholy thing, and who has had no respect for the Spirit of grace, be judged bad enough for a very much worse punishment? GNT 29 What, then, of those who despise the Son of God? who treat as a cheap thing the blood of God's covenant which purified them from sin? who insult the Spirit of grace? Just think how much worse is the punishment they will deserve! BBE 30 For we have had experience of him who says, Punishment is mine, I will give reward. And again, The Lord will be judge of his people. GNT 30 For we know who said, "I will take revenge, I will repay"; and who also said, "The Lord will judge his people." BBE 31 We may well go in fear of falling into the hands of the living God. GNT 31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God! BBE 32 But give thought to the days after you had seen the light, when you went through a great war of troubles; GNT 32 Remember how it was with you in the past. In those days, after God's light had shone on you, you suffered many things, yet were not defeated by the struggle. BBE 33 In part, in being attacked by angry words and cruel acts, before the eyes of everyone, and in part, in being united with those who were attacked in this way. GNT 33 You were at times publicly insulted and mistreated, and at other times you were ready to join those who were being treated in this way. BBE 34 For you had pity on those who were in prison, and had joy in the loss of your property, in the knowledge that you still had a better property and one which you would keep for ever. GNT 34 You shared the sufferings of prisoners, and when all your belongings were seized, you endured your loss gladly, because you knew that you still possessed something much better, which would last forever. BBE 35 So do not give up your hope which will be greatly rewarded. GNT 35 Do not lose your courage, then, because it brings with it a great reward. BBE 36 For, having done what was right in God's eyes, you have need of waiting before his word has effect for you. GNT 36 You need to be patient, in order to do the will of God and receive what he promises. BBE 37 In a very little time he who is coming will come; he will not be slow. GNT 37 For, as the scripture says, "Just a little while longer, and he who is coming will come; he will not delay. BBE 38 But the upright man will be living by his faith; and if he goes back, my soul will have no pleasure in him. GNT 38 My righteous people, however, will believe and live; but if any of them turns back, I will not be pleased with them." BBE 39 But we are not of those who go back to destruction; but of those who have faith even to the salvation of the soul. GNT 39 We are not people who turn back and are lost. Instead, we have faith and are saved.
