Hebrews 10
Amplified Bible
10FOR SINCE the Law has merely a rude outline (foreshadowing) of the good things to come--instead of fully expressing those things--it can never by offering the same sacrifices continually year after year make perfect those who approach [its altars].G1063G3551G2192G4639G18G3195G3756G846G1504G4229G1410G3763G846G2378G3739G4374G2596G1763G1519G1336G5048G4334G5048 2For if it were otherwise, would [these sacrifices] not have stopped being offered? Since the worshipers had once for all been cleansed, they would no longer have any guilt {or} consciousness of sin.G1893G302G3756G3973G4374G1223G3000G530G2508G2192G3367G2089G4893G266 3But [as it is] these sacrifices annually bring a fresh remembrance of sins [to be atoned for],G235G1722G846G364G266G2596G1763 4Because the blood of bulls and goats is powerless to take sins away.G1063G102G129G5022G2532G5131G851G266 5Hence, when He [Christ] entered into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but instead You have made ready a body for Me [to offer];G1352G1525G1519G2889G3004G2378G2532G4376G2309G3756G1161G4983G2675G3427 6In burnt offerings and sin offerings You have taken no delight.G3646G2532G4012G266G2106G3756G2106 7Then I said, Behold, here I am, coming to do Your will, O God--[to fulfill] what is written of Me in the volume of the Book.G5119G2036G2400G2240G1722G2777G975G1125G4012G1700G4160G4675G2307G2316 8When He said just before, You have neither desired, nor have You taken delight in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings--all of which are offered according to the Law--G511G3004G3754G2378G2532G4376G2532G3646G2532G4012G266G2309G3756G3761G2106G3748G4374G2596G3551 9He then went on to say, Behold, [here] I am, coming to do Your will. Thus He does away with {and} annuls the first (former) order [as a means of expiating sin] so that He might inaugurate {and} establish the second (latter) order.G5119G2046G2400G2240G4160G4675G2307G2316G337G4413G2443G2476G1208 10And in accordance with this will [of God], we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One).G1722G3739G2307G2070G37G1223G4376G4983G2424G5547G2178 11Furthermore, every [human] priest stands [at his altar of service] ministering daily, offering the same sacrifices over and over again, which never are able to strip [from every side of us] the sins [that envelop us] {and} take them away--G2532G3303G3956G2409G2476G2596G2250G3008G2532G4374G4178G846G2378G3748G1410G3763G4014G266 12Whereas this One [Christ], after He had offered a single sacrifice for our sins [that shall avail] for all time, sat down at the right hand of God,G1161G846G4374G3391G2378G5228G266G1519G1336G2523G1722G1188G2316 13Then to wait until His enemies should be made a stool beneath His feet.G3063G1551G2193G846G2190G5087G846G5286G4228 14For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed {and} perfected those who are consecrated {and} made holy.G1063G3391G4376G5048G1519G1336G37 15And also the Holy Spirit adds His testimony to us [in confirmation of this]. For having said,G1161G40G4151G2532G3140G2254G1063G3326G4280 16This is the agreement (testament, covenant) that I will set up {and} conclude with them after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their hearts, and I will inscribe them on their minds (on their inmost thoughts and understanding),G3778G1242G3739G1303G4314G846G3326G1565G2250G3004G2962G1325G3450G3551G1909G846G2588G2532G1909G846G1271G1924G846 17He then goes on to say, And their sins and their lawbreaking I will remember no more.G2532G846G266G2532G458G846G3415G3364G2089 18Now where there is absolute remission (forgiveness and cancellation of the penalty) of these [sins and lawbreaking], there is no longer any offering made to atone for sin.G1161G3699G859G5130G3765G4376G4012G266 19Therefore, brethren, since we have full freedom {and} confidence to enter into the [Holy of] Holies [by the power and virtue] in the blood of Jesus,G2192G3767G80G3954G1519G1529G39G1722G129G2424 20By this fresh (new) and living way which He initiated {and} dedicated {and} opened for us through the separating curtain (veil of the Holy of Holies), that is, through His flesh,G4372G2532G2198G3598G3739G1457G2254G1223G2665G5123G846G4561 21And since we have [such] a great {and} wonderful {and} noble Priest [Who rules] over the house of God,G2532G3173G2409G1909G3624G2316 22Let us all come forward {and} draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance {and} absolute conviction engendered by faith (by that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), having our hearts sprinkled {and} purified from a guilty (evil) conscience and our bodies cleansed with pure water.G4334G3326G228G2588G1722G4136G4102G4472G2588G4472G575G4190G4893G2532G4983G3068G2513G5204 23So let us seize {and} hold fast {and} retain without wavering the hope we cherish {and} confess {and} our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) {and} faithful to His word.G2722G3671G1680G186G1063G4103G1861 24And let us consider {and} give attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up (stimulate and incite) to love {and} helpful deeds {and} noble activities,G2532G2657G240G1519G3948G26G2532G2570G2041 25Not forsaking {or} neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.G3361G1459G1997G1438G1997G2531G1485G5100G235G3870G2532G5118G3123G3745G991G2250G1448 26For if we go on deliberately {and} willingly sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for [our] sins [no further offering to which to look forward].G1063G2257G264G1596G3326G2983G1922G225G620G3765G2378G4012G266 27[There is nothing left for us then] but a kind of awful {and} fearful prospect {and} expectation of divine judgment and the fury of burning wrath {and} indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to God].G1161G5100G5398G1561G2920G2532G4442G2205G3195G2068G5227 28Any person who has violated {and} [thus] rejected {and} set at naught the Law of Moses is put to death without pity {or} mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.G5100G114G3475G3551G599G5565G3628G1909G1417G2228G5140G3144 29How much worse (sterner and heavier) punishment do you suppose he will be judged to deserve who has spurned {and} [thus] trampled underfoot the Son of God, and who has considered the covenant blood by which he was consecrated common {and} unhallowed, thus profaning it {and} insulting {and} outraging the [Holy] Spirit [Who imparts] grace (the unmerited favor and blessing of God)?G4214G5501G5098G1380G515G3588G2662G5207G2316G2532G2233G129G1242G3739G1722G37G2839G2532G1796G4151G5485 30For we know Him Who said, Vengeance is Mine [retribution and the meting out of full justice rest with Me]; I will repay [I will exact the compensation], {says the Lord.} And again, The Lord will judge {and} determine {and} solve {and} settle the cause {and} the cases of His people.G1063G1492G2036G1557G1698G1473G467G3004G2962G2532G3825G2962G2919G846G2992 31It is a fearful (formidable and terrible) thing to incur the divine penalties {and} be cast into the hands of the living God!G5398G1706G1519G5495G2198G2316 32But be ever mindful of the days gone by in which, after you were first spiritually enlightened, you endured a great {and} painful struggle,G1161G363G4386G2250G1722G3739G5461G5278G4183G119G3804 33Sometimes being yourselves a gazingstock, publicly exposed to insults {and} abuse and distress, and sometimes claiming fellowship {and} making common cause with others who were so treated.G5124G3303G2301G5037G3680G2532G2347G1161G5124G1096G2844G390G3779G390 34For you did sympathize {and} suffer along with those who were imprisoned, and you bore cheerfully the plundering of your belongings {and} the confiscation of your property, in the knowledge {and} consciousness that you yourselves had a better and lasting possession.G2532G1063G4834G3450G1199G2532G4327G3326G5479G724G5216G5224G1097G1722G1438G2192G1722G3772G2909G2532G3306G5223 35Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great {and} glorious compensation of reward.G577G3361G577G3767G5216G3954G3748G2192G3173G3405 36For you have need of steadfast patience {and} endurance, so that you may perform {and} fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive {and} carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.G1063G2192G5532G5281G2443G4160G2307G2316G2865G1860 37For still a little while (a very little while), and the Coming One will come and He will not delay.G1063G2089G3397G3745G3745G2064G2240G2532G5549G3756G5549 38But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it]; and if he draws back {and} shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight {or} pleasure in him.G1161G1342G2198G1537G4102G2532G1437G5288G3450G5590G2106G3756G2106G1722G846 39But our way is not that of those who draw back to eternal misery (perdition) and are utterly destroyed, but we are of those who believe [who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah] {and} by faith preserve the soul.G1161G2249G2070G3756G5289G1519G684G235G4102G1519G4047G5590
