1The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming--not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship.1For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.1For 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.1For 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.1Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come, and not the actual form of those realities, it can never perfect the worshipers by the same sacrifices they continually offer year after year.
2Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins.2Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins?2Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins?2For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.2Otherwise, wouldn't they have stopped being offered, since the worshipers, once purified, would no longer have any consciousness of sins?
3But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins.3But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year.3But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year.3But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.3But in the sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year.
4It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.4For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.4For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.4For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.

5Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me;5Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me;5Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, "SACRIFICE AND OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, BUT A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME;5Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:5Therefore, as He was coming into the world, He said: You did not want sacrifice and offering, but You prepared a body for Me.
6with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.6in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure.6IN WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE TAKEN NO PLEASURE.6In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.6You did not delight in whole burnt offerings and sin offerings.
7Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the scroll-- I have come to do your will, my God.'"7Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.’”7"THEN I SAID, 'BEHOLD, I HAVE COME (IN THE SCROLL OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN OF ME) TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.'"7Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.7Then I said, "See-- it is written about Me in the volume of the scroll-- I have come to do Your will, God!"
8First he said, "Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them"--though they were offered in accordance with the law.8When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law),8After 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),8Above 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;8After He says above, You did not want or delight in sacrifices and offerings, whole burnt offerings and sin offerings (which are offered according to the law),
9Then he said, "Here I am, I have come to do your will." He sets aside the first to establish the second.9then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second.9then He said, "BEHOLD, I HAVE COME TO DO YOUR WILL." He takes away the first in order to establish the second.9Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.9He then says, See, I have come to do Your will. He takes away the first to establish the second.

11Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.11And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.11Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins;11And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:11Every priest stands day after day ministering and offering the same sacrifices time after time, which can never take away sins.
12But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,12But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,12but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD,12But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;12But this man, after offering one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.
13and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool.13waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet.13waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET.13From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.13He is now waiting until His enemies are made His footstool.
14For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.14For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.14For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.14For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.14For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are sanctified.

15The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:15And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying,15And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying,15Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,15The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. For after He says:
16"This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds."16“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,”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,16This 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;16This is the covenant I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws on their hearts and write them on their minds,
17Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."17then he adds, “I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.”17"AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE."17And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.17He adds: I will never again remember their sins and their lawless acts.
18And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.18Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.18Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin.18Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.18Now where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.
