Hebrews 10:22 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22 let us approach with a sincere heart and in absolute trust, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience[a] and our bodies washed in pure water.

Footnotes:

  1. 10:22 With our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience: as in Hb 9:13 (see note there), the sprinkling motif refers to the Mosaic rite of cleansing from ritual impurity. This could produce only an external purification, whereas sprinkling with the blood of Christ (Hb 9:14) cleanses the conscience. Washed in pure water: baptism is elsewhere referred to as a washing; cf. 1 Cor 6:11; Eph 5:26.
