Hebrews 10:1-18 New American Standard Bible

10 1  For the Law , since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things , can never , by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year , make perfect those who draw near . 2  Otherwise , would they not have ceased to be offered , because the worshipers , having once been cleansed , would no longer have had consciousness of sins ? 3  But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year . 4  For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins . 5  Therefore , when He comes into the world , He says , " SACRIFICE AND OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED , BUT A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME; 6  IN WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE TAKEN NO PLEASURE .

7  " THEN I SAID , 'BEHOLD , I HAVE COME (IN THE SCROLL OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN TO DO YOUR WILL , O GOD .' " 8  After saying above , " SACRIFICES AND OFFERINGS AND WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED , NOR HAVE YOU TAKEN PLEASURE in them" (which are offered according to the Law ), 9  then He said , " BEHOLD , I HAVE COME TO DO YOUR WILL ." He takes away the first in order to establish the second . 10  By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all . 11  Every priest stands daily e ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices , which can never take away sins ; 12  but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time , SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD , 13  waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET . 14  For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified . 15  And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying , 16  " THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS , SAYS THE Lord : I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART , AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM," He then says, 17  " AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO e MORE ." 18  Now where there is forgiveness of these things , there is no longer any offering for sin .
