Hebrews 10:4-10 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

because it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.

So when Christ came into the world he said,

“You don’t want sacrifices and offerings,
    but you have prepared a body for me.
You are not pleased with the sacrifices of animals killed and burned
    or with offerings to take away sins.
Then I said, ‘Here I am, God.
    It is written about me in the book of the law.
    I have come to do what you want.’”

Christ first said, “You don’t want sacrifices and offerings. You are not pleased with animals killed and burned or with sacrifices to take away sin.” (These are all sacrifices that the law commands.) Then he said, “Here I am, God. I have come to do what you want.” So God ends that first system of sacrifices and starts his new way. 10 Jesus Christ did the things God wanted him to do. And because of that, we are made holy through the sacrifice of Christ’s body. Christ made that sacrifice one time—enough for all time.
