NASB — Hebrews 10 — KJV

One Sacrifice of Christ Is Sufficient

1 For the Law, since it has [only] aa shadow of bthe good things to come [and] not the very Iform of things, IIcan cnever, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, dmake 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 aconsciousness of sins? 3 But ain Ithose [sacrifices] there is a reminder of sins year by year. 4 For it is aimpossible for the bblood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 Therefore, awhen He comes into the world, He says,
  “bSACRIFICE AND OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED,
  BUT cA BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME;
  6 aIN WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND [sacrifices] FOR SIN YOU HAVE TAKEN NO PLEASURE.
  7aTHEN I SAID, ‘BEHOLD, I HAVE COME
  (IN bTHE SCROLL OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN OF ME)
  TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.’”
8 After saying above, “aSACRIFICES AND OFFERINGS AND bWHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND [sacrifices] cFOR SIN YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, NOR HAVE YOU TAKEN PLEASURE [in them]” (which are offered according to the Law), 9 then He Isaid, “aBEHOLD, I HAVE COME TO DO YOUR WILL.” He takes away the first in order to establish the second. 10 By Ithis will we have been asanctified through bthe offering of cthe body of Jesus Christ donce for all.

11 ¶ Every priest stands daily ministering and aoffering time after time the same sacrifices, which bcan never take away sins; 12 but He, having offered one sacrifice afor Isins bfor all time, cSAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, 13 waiting from that time onward aUNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET. 14 For by one offering He has aperfected bfor all time those who are Isanctified. 15 And athe Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying,

A New and Living Way

19 ¶ Therefore, brethren, since we ahave confidence to benter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by aa new and living way which He inaugurated for us through bthe veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and since [we have] aa great priest bover the house of God, 22 let us adraw near with a Isincere heart in bfull assurance of faith, having our hearts csprinkled [clean] from an evil conscience and our bodies dwashed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the aconfession of our bhope without wavering, for cHe who promised is faithful; 24 and let us consider how ato stimulate one another to love and bgood deeds, 25 not forsaking our own aassembling together, as is the habit of some, but bencouraging [one another]; and all the more as you see cthe day drawing near.

Christ or Judgment

26 ¶ For if we go on asinning willfully after receiving bthe knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a terrifying expectation of ajudgment and bTHE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES. 28 aAnyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on [the testimony of] two or three witnesses. 29 aHow much severer punishment do you think he will deserve bwho has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean cthe blood of the covenant dby which he was sanctified, and has einsulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “aVENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY.” And again, “bTHE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.” 31 It is a aterrifying thing to fall into the hands of the bliving God.

32 ¶ But remember athe former days, Iwhen, after being benlightened, you endured a great cconflict of sufferings, 33 partly by being amade a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming bsharers with those who were so treated. 34 For you ashowed sympathy to the prisoners and accepted bjoyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves ca better possession and a lasting one. 35 Therefore, do not throw away your aconfidence, which has a great breward. 36 For you have need of aendurance, so that when you have bdone the will of God, you may creceive Iwhat was promised.

The weakness of the law sacrifices.

1 ¶ For the law having a shadow of good things to come, [and] not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3 But in those [sacrifices there is] a remembrance again [made] of sins every year. 4 For [it is] not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and [sacrifices] for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and [offering] for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure [therein]; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

The sacrifice of Christ's body once offered,

10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once [for all]. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

for ever hath taken away sins.

14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15 [Whereof] the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 This [is] the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18 Now where remission of these [is, there is] no more offering for sin.

An exhortation to hold fast the faith, with patience and thanksgiving.

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And [having] an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of [our] faith without wavering; (for he [is] faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 [It is] a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; 33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. 34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. 35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. 36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
