Hebrews 10:1-5

Context
Concluding Exposition: Old and New Sacrifices Contrasted

10:1 For the law possesses a shadow of the good things to come but not the reality itself, and is therefore completely unable, by the same sacrifices offered continually, year after year, to perfect those who come to worship. 1  10:2 For otherwise would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers would have been purified once for all and so have 2  no further consciousness of sin? 10:3 But in those sacrifices 3  there is a reminder of sins year after year. 10:4 For the blood of bulls and goats cannot take away sins. 4  10:5 So when he came into the world, he said,

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me.

1 tn Grk “those who approach.”

2 tn Grk “the worshipers, having been purified once for all, would have.”

3 tn Grk “in them”; the referent (those sacrifices) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Grk “for it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.”
