How to sin 10 Sin 3 10

The Bible in the standard translation


The Epistle to the Hebrews, Chapter 10


The final reconciliation with God

Heb 10.1For the law contains only a shadow of the goods to come, not the shape of things themselves; therefore, through the same sacrifices made every year, it can never lead to perfection forever those who come before God.Heb 10.2Wouldn't one have stopped sacrificing if the sacrificers had been cleansed once and for all and were no longer aware of any sin?Heb 10.3But through these sacrifices only the sins are remembered every year,Heb 10.4for the blood of bulls and goats cannot possibly take away sins.Heb 10,5That is why Christ saith when he entered the world: You did not ask for sacrifices or meat offerings, but you created a body for me; /Heb 10.6you have no pleasure in burnt and sin offerings.Heb 10.7Then I said: Yes, I come - / that's what the scroll says about me - / to do your will, God.Heb 10.8First he says: You do not ask for sacrifices and food offerings, burnt and sin offerings, you have no pleasure in them, although they are offered according to the law;Heb 10.9but then he said: Yes, I come to do your will. So Christ cancels the first to put the second into effect.Heb 10:10Because of this will, we are sanctified once and for all through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ.Heb 10:11Every priest stands there day after day, doing his ministry and making the same sacrifices many times that can never take away sins.Hebrews 10:12But the latter offered only a single sacrifice for sin and then sat at God's right hand forever;Heb 10.13since then he has waited until his enemies are put under his feet as a stool.Heb 10.14For through a single sacrifice he brought those who are being sanctified to perfection forever.Heb 10.15This is what the Holy Spirit testifies to us; because first he says:Heb 10.16This will be the covenant that I will make with them after these days - / says the Lord: I put my laws in their hearts / and write them in their hearts;Heb 10.17but then: I no longer think about their sins and transgressions.Heb 10.18But where sins are forgiven, there is no longer a sin offering..

The way of faith: 10.19-13.19


The unchangeable creed

Heb 10.19So we have the confidence, brethren, to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus.Heb 10.20He opened up the new and living way for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh.Heb 10.21Since we have a high priest who is over the house of God,Heb 10:22Let us come with a sincere heart and with full assurance of faith, the heart cleansed from a guilty conscience by sprinkling and the body washed with pure water.Heb 10.23Let us hold on to the unchanging confession of hope, for he who made the promise is faithful.Heb 10:24Let us look out for one another and inspire us to love and do good deeds.Heb 10.25Let us not stay away from our gatherings, as some have become used to, but encourage one another, all the more as you see the day approaching..

Warning of waste

Heb 10.26For if we intentionally sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice for those sins,Heb 10:27but only the expectation of the terrible judgment and a raging fire that will consume the opponents.Heb 10.28Anyone who rejects the Law of Moses must die without mercy at the testimony of two or three witnesses.Heb 10.29Do you not think that a much more severe punishment deserves those who trampled the Son of God, despised the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and reviled the spirit of grace?Heb 10.30We know him who said: Vengeance is mine, I will repay, and furthermore: The Lord will judge his people.Heb 10:31It is terrible to fall into the hands of the living God..

Reminder to persevere

Hebrews 10:32Remember the earlier days when after your enlightenment you endured many tough struggles:Hebrews 10:33You have been insulted and tormented in front of all the world, or you have been affected by the fate of those who suffered so;Hebrews 10:34for you suffered with the prisoners and also gladly accepted the robbery of your property, because you knew that you have better possessions that remain with you.Hebrews 10:35So do not throw away your confidence that brings great rewards.Hebrews 10:36What you need is perseverance so that you can do the will of God and thus attain the promised good.Hebrews 10:37Because only for a short time, / then the one who is supposed to come will come / and he will not stay away.Hebrews 10:38But my righteous will live by faith; / but if he backs away, / I have no pleasure in him.Hebrews 10:39But we do not belong to those who shrink back and get lost, but to those who believe and win life.
