then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, [a]O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. 10 (A)By that will we have been [b]sanctified (B)through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Christ’s Death Perfects the Sanctified

11 And every priest stands (C)ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 (D)But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down (E)at the right hand of God, 13 from that time waiting (F)till His enemies are made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being [c]sanctified.

15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,

16 (G)“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” 17 then He adds, (H)“Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” 18 Now where there is [d]remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Hold Fast Your Confession

19 Therefore, brethren, having (I)boldness[e] to enter (J)the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and (K)living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us (L)draw near with a true heart (M)in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for (N)He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 (O)not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and (P)so much the more as you see (Q)the Day approaching.
