Chapter 10

 

10:1 Because (gar) the (ho) law (nomos), it holding (echōn) a shadow (skian) of the (tōn) good things (agathōn) being about (mellontōn) [to be], (she (autēn) absolutely not (ouk) [being] the (tēn) icon (eikona) of the (tōn) practical issues (pragmatōn) - down (kat’) each year (eniauton) the (tais) same (autais) continual (diēnekes) sacrifices (thusiais) which (has) they bring (prospherousin) into (eis) the (to) [holy places, v9:25]), it could absolutely not at any time inherently power itself (oudepote dunatai) to make complete (teleiōsai) the ones (tous) causing themselves to come toward (proserchomenous) [the God, v9:24]!

 

(Jesus Christ was the icon of the sacrificial issues, he being the final sacrifice, Rom. 8:29; 2 Cor. 4:4; Col. 1:15)

 

10:2 Otherwise (epei) perhaps (an) would they absolutely not have caused themselves to pause (ouk epausanto) [the sacrifices, v1] being brought to (prospheromenai) [the holy places, v9:25] through (dia) the (to) [law, v1], not one (mēdemian) of the ones (tous) serving (latreuontas) to hold (echein) yet (eti) a conscience (suneidēsin) of sins (hamartiōn), once (hapax) having been cleansed (kekatharismenous)!?

 

10:3 BUT (all’), in (en) them (autais) [there is] a remembrance (anamnēsis) of sins (hamartiōn) down through (kat’) each year (eniauton).

 

10:4 Because (gar) blood (haima) of bulls (taurōn), and (kai) [blood] of he-goats (tragōn), [is] inherently unpowered (adunaton) to seize away (aphairein) sins (hamartias).

 

10:5 Through this (dio), causing himself to enter in (eiserchomenos) into (eis) the (ton) cosmos (kosmon), he says (legei), “A sacrifice (thusian) and (kai) a presentation (prosphoran) you did absolutely not desire (ouk ēthelēsas)!

 

But (de) you have caused yourself to make fit (katērtisō) for me (moi) a body (sōma).

 

10:6 And (kai) whole burnt offerings (holokautōmata) about (peri) sin (hamartias) you did absolutely not well-approve (ouk eudokēsas)!

 

10:7 Then (tote) I enunciated (eipon), 'Behold (idou), I arrive (hēkō)

 

In (en) a heading (kephalidi) of a little scroll (bibliou) it has been written (gegraptai) about (peri) me (emou), of the (tou) [desire of me, vPsa. 40:6-8] to do (poiēsai) the (to) desire (thelēma) of you (sou), the (ho) God (theos)!'”

 

(See Psalm 40:6-8)

 

10:8 saying (legōn) above (anōteron), that (hoti), “Sacrifices (thusias), and (kai) presentations (prosphoras), and (kai) whole burnt offerings (holokautōmata), and (kai) [offerings] about (peri) sin (hamartias), you did absolutely not desire (ouk ēthelēsas)!

 

But you absolutely did not well-approve (oude eudokēsas) ones which (haitines) are brought to (prospherontai) [you] down on account (kata) of law (nomon)!”

 

10:9 Behold (idou), then (tote) he has stated (eirēken), “I arrive (hēkō) of the (tou) [desire of me, vPsa. 40:6-8], to do (poiēsai) the (to) desire (thelēma) of you (sou)!”

 

He annihilates (anairei) the (to) first (prōton) [law, v8], in order that (hina) he may stand (stēsē) the (to) second (deuteron) [law, v8];

 

(See Rom. 3:27; Heb 11:1)

 

10:10 in (en) whose (hō) desire (thelēmati) we are (esmen), we having been made holy (hēgiasmenoi) through (dia) the (tēs) presentation (prosphoras) once upon a time (ephapax) of the (tou) body (sōmatos) of Jesus (Iēsous) Christ (Christou)!

 

10:11 And (kai) truly (men), every (pas) sacrificial priest (hiereus) has stood (hestēken) down through (kath’) [every, v7:27] day (hēmeran) giving liturgical service (leitourgōn);

 

and (kai) the (tas) same one (autas) many times (pollakis) bringing to (prospherōn) [the holy places, v9:25] sacrifices (thusias), ones which (haitines) can absolutely not at any time (oudepote) inherently power themselves (dunantai) to take away sins all around (perielein hamartias)!

 

10:12 But (de) this one (houtos) having brought to (prosenenkas) [the holy places, v9:24] one (mian) sacrifice (thusian) over (huper) [the sake] of sins (hamartiōn) into (eis) the (to) continual (diēnekes) [taking away of sins all around, v11], he sat down (ekathisen) in (en) right (dexia) of the (tou) God (theou).

 

10:13 Of the (to) remainder (loipon) [of sin, v11], he is causing himself to receive [it] out (ekdechomenos) [of the ones causing themselves to come toward the God, v1] until (heōs) the (hoi) hated ones (echthroi) of him (autou) may have been placed (tethōsin) [as] a footstool under (hupopodion) the (tōn) feet (podōn) of him (autou)!

 

(For Christ Jesus' footstool, see Psalm 110:1; Mat. 22:44; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:43; Acts 2:35; *Rom. 16:20; 1 Cor. 15:25-28; Eph. 1:22; Heb. 1:13, 2:8, 10:13)

 

10:14 Because (gar) one (mia) presentation (prosphora) has been made complete (teteleiōken), into (eis) the (to) continual (diēnekes) [taking away of sins all around, v11] of the ones (tous) being made holy (hagiazomenous)

 

(See John 20:17)

 

10:15 But (de) the (to) Spirit (pneuma) also (kai), the (to) holy one (hagion), witnesses (marturei) to us (hēmin), because (gar) with (meta) the (to) [coming to pass of the Spirit, vJer. 31:31] to have stated (eirēkenai):

 

10:16 “This (hautē) [is] the (hē) covenant (diathēkē) which (hēn) I shall cause Myself to put through (diathēsomai) to (pros) them (autous) with (meta) [the passing, vJer. 31:31] of the (tas) days (hēmeras) of those things (ekeinas)”, says (legei) [the] Lord (kurios), “I am giving (didous) [the] laws (nomous) of Me (mou) upon (epi) [the] hearts (kardias) of them (autōn);

 

and (kai) upon (epi) the (tēn) thought (dianoian) of them (autōn) I shall inscribe (epigrapsō) them (autous).

 

10:17 And (kai) of the (tōn) sins (hamartiōn) of them (autōn), and (kai) of the (tōn) lawlessness (anomiōn) of them (autōn), no (mē), I shall absolutely not be reminded (ou mnēsthēsomai) any longer (eti)!” 

 

(For the God's prophecy of His coming new covenant, see Jer. 31:31-34; 2 Cor. 3:2-3; Heb. 8:8-12, 10:16-17)

 

(For all those who have received a new birth above in God’s promised gift of His paternal holy Spirit (Lev. 26:11-12; John 3:3-8; Acts 1:4; 2 Cor. 6:16-18; *1 Pet. 1:23), and for those paternal sons being taught by God (YHWH) Himself, see Isa. 54:13; Jer. 31:31-34; Luke 12:12; John 5:19-20, 6:45, 14:26, 15:26, 16:13-14; 1 Cor. 1:4-8, 12:8; 2 Cor. 5:19; Gal. 1:12; Eph. 4:20-21; 1 Thes. 4:9; Heb. 8:8-12, 10:16-17; 1 John 2:27, 5:20)

 

10:18 But (de) where (hopou) [there is] a letting go (aphesis) of these (toutōn) [there is] absolutely no longer yet (ouketi) a presentation (prosphora) about (peri) sin (hamartias)!

 

10:19 Therefore (oun), brothers (adelphoi), we having (echontes) boldness (parrēsian) [to go] into (eis) the (tēn) entrance (eisodon) of the (tōn) holy places (hagiōn) in (en) the (tō) blood (haimati) of Jesus (Iēsou),

 

10:20 which (hēn) way (hodon) he renewed (enekainisen) for us (hēmin), a lately slaughtered (prosphaton) and (kai) living (zōsan) [way] through (dia) the (tou) curtain (katapetasmatos), that (tout’) is (estin), the (tēs) flesh (sarkos) of him (autou),

 

(See John 10:1-9, 14:6, 6:44; Mat. 7:13; Mark 7:14; Luke 13:24)

 

10:21 and (kai) [having] a great (megan) sacrificial priest (hierea) over (epi) the (ton) house (oikon) of the (tou) God (theou),

 

(For what is God’s prophesied true “tent”, His new holy place under His new covenant, the prophesied promise of the Father to place himself into believers to live in them as His new permanent domicile, a true “tent” not built with mortal’s hands but with His own hand, see Ex. 15:17; 2 Sam. 7:5-16; Isa. 8:14; Ezek. 11:16; Joel 2:28-29; Amos 9:11-12; Mat. 3:11, 16:18, 26:61, 27:39-40; Mark 14:58, 15:29; Luke 3:21-22, 24:49; *John 2:19-22, 3:1-, 4:20-24, 7:37-39, 14:2, *23; Acts 1:4-5, 2:16-18, 33, 38-39, *7:44-50, *15:16-18, *17:24, *20:28; *Rom. 8:9-11, 12:4-5; 1 Cor. *3:16-17, *6:19-20, 10:16-17, 12:12-28; *2 Cor. 5:1, *6:16-18; Gal. 3:14, 22; Eph. 1:13-14, 22-23, *2:17-22, 3:6, 4:11-16, 5:30-32; Col. 1:18-27, 2:6-10, 3:15; *1 Thes. 5:9-11; *1 Tim. 3:15; *2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. *3:4-6, 8:2, *9:11-15, *24, 10:21, 36; 1 Pet. 2:4-5; 1 John 4:12-16; Rev. 3:12, 7:15, 11:19, *13:6, *21:3, 22)

 

10:22 may we cause ourselves to come toward (proserchōmetha) [God, v21] with (meta) a true (alēthinēs) heart (kardias), in (en) full lading (plērophoria) of belief (pisteōs);

 

the (tas) hearts (kardias) [of us] having been sprinkled (rherantismenoi) from (apo) a conscience (suneidēseōs) of evil (ponēras), and (kai) we having bathed (lelousmenoi) the (to) body (sōma) [in] cleansed (katharō) water (hudati).

 

10:23 May we hold down (katechōmen) the (tēn) confession (homologian) of the (tēs) hope (elpidos), unwavering (aklinē), because (gar) a believable one (pistos) [is] the one (ho) having caused Himself to promise (epangeilamenos)!

 

10:24 And (kai) may we entirely perceive (katanoōmen) one another (allēlous) into (eis) a honing (paroxusmon) of love (agapēs), and (kai) of beautiful (kalōn) works (ergōn).

 

(For a believer's responsibility to stand himself alongside of the Father through doing good works, in order to receive anything from Him, see Mat. 6:1-4, 18:19, 19:26, 21:42; Mark 10:27, 12:11; John 5:44, 6:45-46, 8:38-42, 9:33, 17:5-8; Rom. 2:11-13, 6:13, 12:1; 1 Cor. 7:24, 8:8a; 2 Cor. 9:8; Gal. 3:11; Eph. 6:8; 1 Tim. 2:10; 2 Tim. 3:17; Tit. 2:14, 3:8,14; Heb. 10:24; James 1:5-7, 27; 1 Pet. 2:20-21; 2 Pet. 3:8; 2 John 1:3; Rev. 2:28)

 

10:25 We are ones not leaving (mē enkataleipontes) the (tēn) gathering together (episunagōgēn) of ourselves (heautōn), down according to as (kathōs) [is] a custom (ethos) for some (tisin).

 

BUT (alla), we are ones accosting (parakalountes) [ourselves], and (kai) so much (tosoutō) more (mallon) for as much as (hosō) you see (blepete) the (tēn) day (hēmeran) coming near1448 (engizousan)!

 

10:26 Because (gar), of us (hēmōn) willingly (hekousiōs) sinning (hamartanōnton), with (meta) the (to) [coming to pass for us] to receive (labein) the (tēn) experiential knowledge (epignōsin) of the (tēs) Truth (alētheias), there remains (apoleipetai) absolutely no longer yet (ouketi) a sacrifice (thusia) [for us] about (peri) sins (hamartiōn)!

 

10:27 But (de) [there remains, v26] a certain (tis) fearful (phobera) expectation (ekdochē) of judgment (kriseōs), and (kai) of fire (puros), a zeal (zelōs) to eat (esthiein) the ones (tous) being about (mellontos) [to be] under controversy (hupenantious).

 

10:28 Anyone (tis) having displaced (athetēsas) [the] law (nomon) of Moses (mōuseōs), upon (epi) two (dusin) or (ē) three (trisin) witnesses (martusin) dies away (apothnēskei) apart from (chōris) compassion (oiktirmōn).

 

10:29 How much (posō) worse (cheironos), do you conclude (dokeite), shall he be made worthy (axiōthēsetai timōrias) [to die away, v28]:

 

the one (ho) having walked down on (katapatēsas) the (ton) Son (huion) of the (tou) God (theou);

 

and (kai) [the one] having led himself (hēgēsamenos) [to conclude] the (to) blood (haima) of the (tēs) covenant (diathēkēs) [to be] common (koinon), (in (en) to which (hō) he was made holy (hēgiasthē));

 

and (kai) [the one] having been in violation (enubrisas) of the (to) Spirit (pneuma) of the (tēs) grace (charitos)!?

 

10:30 Because (gar) we know (oidamen) the one (ton) having enunciated (eiponta), “Vengeance (ekdikēsis) [is] to Me (emoi), I (egō) shall repay (antapodōsō)!”

 

(See Deut. 32:35)

 

And (kai) again (palin), “[The] Lord (kurios) shall judge (krinei) the (ton) people (laon) of Him (autou).”

 

(See Deut. 32:36)

 

10:31 Fearful (phoberon) [is] the one (to) to fall (empesein) into (eis) [the] hands (cheiras) of a living (zōntas) God (theou).

 

10:32 But (de) call up to remembrance (anamimnēskesthe) the (tas) previous (proteron) days (hēmeras) in (en) which (hais) you having been illuminated (phōtisthentes), you endured (hupemeinate) much (pollēn) competition (athlēsin) of sufferings (pathēmatōn).

 

10:33 Truly (men) this (touto) is caused to be made a theatrical performance (theatrizomenoi), both (te) for reproaches (oneidismois) and (kai) for mental pressures (thlipsesin)!

 

But (de) [call to remembrance, v32] this (touto), you having become (genēthentes) sharing partners (koinōnoi) of the ones (tōn) causing themselves to turn up390 (anastrephomenōn) thusly (houtōs);

 

10:34 and (kai) because (gar) to the (tois) bound ones (desmiois) you sympathized (sunepathēsate);

 

and (kai) the (tēn) plundering (harpagēn) of the (tōn) things being subordinate (huparchontōn) of you (humōn), you caused yourselves to receive [it] toward you (prosedexasthe) with (meta) joy (charas), knowing (ginōskontes) to hold (echein) for yourselves (heautous) a stronger positioned (kreittona) subsistence (huparxin), a staying (menousan) [subsistence] also (kai).

 

10:35 Therefore (oun) may you not throw away (mē apobalēte) the (tēn) boldness (parrēsian) of you (humōn), which (hētis) has (echei) a great (megalēn) wage given from (misthapodosian) [it].

 

10:36 Because (gar) you have (echete) a need (chreian) of endurance (hupomonēs), in order that (hina) having done (poiēsantes) the (to) desire (thelēma) of the (tou) God (theou) you may have caused yourselves to provide for (komisēsthe) the (tēn) promise (epaggelian).

 

(For what is God’s prophesied true “tent”, His new holy place under His new covenant, the prophesied promise of the Father to place himself into believers to live in them as His new permanent domicile, a true “tent” not built with mortal’s hands but with His own hand, see Ex. 15:17; 2 Sam. 7:5-16; Isa. 8:14; Ezek. 11:16; Joel 2:28-29; Amos 9:11-12; Mat. 3:11, 16:18, 26:61, 27:39-40; Mark 14:58, 15:29; Luke 3:21-22, 24:49; *John 2:19-22, 3:1-, 4:20-24, 7:37-39, 14:2, *23; Acts 1:4-5, 2:16-18, 33, 38-39, *7:44-50, *15:16-18, *17:24, *20:28; *Rom. 8:9-11, 12:4-5; 1 Cor. *3:16-17, *6:19-20, 10:16-17, 12:12-28; *2 Cor. 5:1, *6:16-18; Gal. 3:14, 22; Eph. 1:13-14, 22-23, *2:17-22, 3:6, 4:11-16, 5:30-32; Col. 1:18-27, 2:6-10, 3:15; *1 Thes. 5:9-11; *1 Tim. 3:15; *2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. *3:4-6, 8:2, *9:11-15, *24, 10:21, 36; 1 Pet. 2:4-5; 1 John 4:12-16; Rev. 3:12, 7:15, 11:19, *13:6, *21:3, 22)

 

10:37 Because (gar), yet (eti) as long as (hoson) [is] a micron (mikron) [of time is] as long as (hoson) [before] the one (ho) being caused to come (erchomenos) shall arrive (hēxei), and (kai) he shall absolutely not be taking his time (ou chronisei)!

 

10:38 But (de) the (ho) righteous one (dikaios) of me (mou) shall cause himself to live (zēsetai) out (ek) of belief (pisteōs).

 

And (kai) if perhaps (ean) he may cause himself to be misarranged (huposteilētai), the (hē) soul (psuchē) of me (mou) does absolutely not well-approve (ouk eudokei) in (en) him (autō)!

 

10:39 But (de) we (hēmeis) are ones (esmen) absolutely not (ouk) of a setback (hupostolēs) into (eis) loss (apōleian)!

 

BUT (alla), [we are ones] of belief (pisteōs), into (eis) an acquisition (peripoiēsin) of [the] soul (psuchēs)!
