Hebrews 10:1-18

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? 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. 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. NIV 2 Otherwise, 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. GNT 3 As it is, however, the sacrifices serve year after year to remind people of their sins. NIV 3 But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins. GNT 4 For the blood of bulls and goats can never take away sins. NIV 4 It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 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. 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; GNT 6 You are not pleased with animals burned whole on the altar or with sacrifices to take away sins. NIV 6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased. 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.' " NIV 7 Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll— I have come to do your will, my God.’ ” 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. NIV 8 First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. 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. NIV 9 Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second. 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. NIV 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 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. 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. 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. NIV 12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, GNT 13 There he now waits until God puts his enemies as a footstool under his feet. NIV 13 and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool. GNT 14 With one sacrifice, then, he has made perfect forever those who are purified from sin. NIV 14 For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. GNT 15 And the Holy Spirit also gives us his witness. First he says, NIV 15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: 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." 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.” GNT 17 And then he says, "I will not remember their sins and evil deeds any longer." NIV 17 Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.” GNT 18 So when these have been forgiven, an offering to take away sins is no longer needed. NIV 18 And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.
