1 For the law having Col. 2:17a shadow ch. 9:11of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, ch. 9:9can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto ver. 14perfect.
3 ch. 9:7But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
4 For Mic. 6:6,7it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
8 Above 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;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
10 John 17:19By the which will we are sanctified ch. 9:12through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest standeth Num. 28:3daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, ver. 4which can never take away sins:
12 Col. 3:1But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting Ps. 110:1;Acts 2:35till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For by one offering ver. 1he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 ch. 8:10,12This 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;
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 The appeal to hold fast
21 And having ch. 4:14a high priest over 1 Tim. 3:15the house of God;
22 ch. 4:16Let us draw near with a true heart Eph. 3:12in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled ch. 9:14from an evil conscience, and Ezek. 36:25our bodies washed with pure water.
23 ch. 4:14Let us hold fast the profession of our hope without wavering; (for 1 Cor. 1:9;2 Thes. 3:3he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Acts 2:42Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and Rom. 13:11so much the more, as ye see Phil. 4:5;2 Pet. 3:9the day approaching.
26 For Num. 15:30if we sin wilfully 2 Pet. 2:20after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and Zeph. 1:18;2 Thes. 1:8fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 ch. 2:2He that despised Moses' law died without mercy Mat. 18:16under two or three witnesses:
29 ch. 2:3Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and 1 Cor. 11:29hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, Mat. 12:31;Eph. 4:30and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that hath said, Deut. 32:35Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, Deut. 32:36The Lord shall judge his people.
31 Luke 12:5It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But Gal. 3:4call to remembrance the former days, in which, ch. 6:4after ye were illuminated, ye endured Phil. 1:29;Col. 2:1a great fight of afflictions;
33 Partly, whilst ye were made 1 Cor. 4:9a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst Phil. 1:7ye became companions of them that were so used.
34 For ye had compassion of me 2 Tim. 1:16in my bonds, and Mat. 5:12took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing [f]in yourselves that Mat. 6:20ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, Mat. 5:12which hath great recompence of reward.
36 Luke 21:19For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, Col. 3:24ye might receive the promise.
37 For Luke 18:8yet a little while, and Hab. 2:3,4he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
38 Now Rom. 1:17;Gal. 3:11the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
39 But we are not of them 2 Pet. 2:20who draw back unto perdition; but of them that Acts 16:31;1 Thes. 5:9;2 Thes. 2:14believe to the saving of the soul.
