10:1 Forsooth the law having shadow of goods to come, not that image of things, by all years by those same hosts, which they offer without ceasing, never may make men coming nigh perfect; For the law which hath but the shadow of good things to come, and not the things in their own fashion, can never with the sacrifices which they offer year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For the Law having the shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices, which they offer year by year continually, sanctify the comers thereunto. 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:
10:2 else they should have ceased to be offered, forasmuch as the worshippers cleansed once, had no conscience of sin furthermore. For would not then those sacrifices have ceased to have been offered? because that the offerers once purged, should have had no more consciences of sins. For would they not then have ceased to have been offered, because that the offerers once purged, should have had no more conscience of sins? For then would they not have ceased to be offered, because that the worshippers once purged, should have had no more conscience of sins?
10:3 But in them by oft offering mind of sins is made by all years. Nevertheless in those sacrifices is there mention made of sins every year. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again of sins every year. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
10:4 For it is impossible that sins be done away by blood of bulls, and of bucks of goats. For it is unpossible that the blood of oxen, and of goats should take away sins. For it is unpossible that the blood of bulls & goats should take away sins. For it is not possible that the blood of Bulls and of Goats, should take away sins.
10:5 Therefore he entering into the world, saith, Thou wouldest not sacrifice and offering; but thou hast shaped a body to me; Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith: Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not have: but a body hast thou ordained me, Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice & offering thou wouldest not: but a body hast thou ordained me. Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
10:6 and burnt sacrifices also for sin pleased not to thee. holocausts and sacrifice for sin thou hast not allowed. In burnt offerings, & sin offerings thou hast had no pleasure. In burnt offerings, and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure:
10:7 Then I said, Lo! I come; in the beginning of the book it is written of me, that I do thy will, thou God. Then I said: Lo I come, In the beginning of the book it is written of me, that I should fulfill thy will, o god. Then I said, Lo, I come (In the beginning of the book it is written of me) that I should do thy will, o God. Then said I, Lo, I come. (In the volume of the book it is written of me) to do thy will, O God.
10:8 He above saying, For thou wouldest not hosts, and offerings, and burnt sacrifices, for sin, nor those things be pleasant to thee, which be offered by the law, Above when he sayeth sacrifice, and offering, and holocausts, and sacrifice for sin, thou wouldest not have, neither hast allowed (which are offered by the law) Above, when he said, Sacrifice & offering, and burnt offerings, & sin offerings thou wouldest not have, neither hadst pleasure therein (which are offered by the Law) 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:
10:9 then I said, Lo! I come, that I do thy will, God. He doeth away the first, that he make steadfast the second. then he said: Lo I am ready to do thy will o god he taketh away the first to stablish the latter Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, o God, he taketh away the first, that he may stablish the second. Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will (O God:) He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
10:10 In which will we be hallowed by the offering of the body of Christ Jesus once. By the which will we are sanctified, by the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. By the which will we are sanctified, even by the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once made. By the which will we are sanctified, through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
10:11 And soothly each priest is ready each day ministering, and ofttimes offering the same hosts, which may never do away sins. And every priest is ready daily ministering, and ofttimes offereth one manner of offering, which can never take away sins: And every Priest appeareth daily ministering, and ofttimes offereth one manner of offering, which can never take away sins: And every Priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices which can never take away sins.
10:12 But this man offering one sacrifice for sins, for evermore sitteth on the right half of God the Father; but this man after he had offered one sacrifice for sins, sat him down for ever on the right hand of god, But this man after he had offered one sacrifice for sins, sitteth for ever at the right hand of God, But this man after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God,
10:13 from thenceforth abiding, till his enemies be put a stool under his feet. and from henceforth tarrieth till his foes be made his footstool. And from henceforth tarrieth, till his enemies be made his footstool. From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
10:14 For by one offering he made perfect for ever hallowed men. For with one offering hath he made perfect for ever them that are sanctified. For with one offering hath he consecrated for ever them that are sanctified. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

10:16 This is the testament, which I shall witness to them after those days, saith the Lord, in giving my laws in the hearts of them, and in the souls of them I shall above write them; This is the testament that I will make unto them after those days saith the lord. And I will put my laws in their hearts, and in their minds I will write them, This is the Testament that I will make unto them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my Laws in their heart, and in their minds I will write them. 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:
10:17 and now I shall no more think on the sins and wickednesses of them. and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
10:18 And where remission of these is, now is there none offering for sin. And where remission of these things is, there is no more offering for sin. Now where remission of these things is, there is no more offering for sin. Now, where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
10:19 Therefore, brethren, having trust into the entering of holy things in the blood of Christ, Seeing brethren that by the means of the blood of Jesus, we may be bold to enter into that holy place, Seeing therefore, brethren, that by the blood of Jesus we may be bold to enter into the Holy place Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,

10:21 and we having the great priest upon the house of God, And seeing also that we have an high priest which is ruler over the house of god, And seeing we have an high Priest, which is over the House of God, And having an high Priest over the house of God:
10:22 nigh we with very heart in the plenty of faith; and be our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with clean water, let us draw nigh with a true heart in a full faith sprinkled in our hearts, from an evil conscience, and washed in our bodies with pure water, Let us draw near with a true heart in assurance of faith, sprinkled in our hearts from an evil conscience, & washed in our bodies with pure water.

10:25 not forsaking our gathering together, as it is of custom of some men, but counseling them, and by so much the more, by how much ye shall see the day nighing. and let us not forsake the fellowship that we have among ourselves, as the manner of some is: but let us exhort one another, and that so much the more, because ye see that the day draweth nigh.

10:26 Forsooth to us sinning wilfully, after the knowing of truth taken, now an host for sins is not left. For if we sin willingly after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins: For if we sin willingly after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye shall he be counted worthy, which treadeth under foot the son of god: and counteth the blood of the testament as an unholy thing, wherewith he was sanctified, and doeth dishonour to the spirit of grace. Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye shall he be worthy, which treadeth under foot the Son of God, and counteth the blood of the Testament as an unholy thing, wherewith he was sanctified, and doeth despite the Spirit of grace?

But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition: but of them that believe, to the saving of the soul.
