Hebrews 10:19-39New American Standard Bible (NASB)
A New and Living Way
19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, through His flesh,21 and since we havea great priest over the house of God,22 let’s approach God with a [a]sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.23 Let’s hold firmly to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;24 and let’s consider how to [b]encourage one another in love and good deeds,25 not abandoning our own meeting together, as is the habit of some people, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
Christ or Judgment
26 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,27 but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries.28 Anyone who has ignored the Law of Moses is put to death without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.29 How much more severe punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge His people.”31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But remember the former days, [c]when, after being enlightened, you endured a great conflict of sufferings,33 partly by being made a public spectacle through insults and distress, and partly by becoming [d]companions with those who were so treated.34 For you showed sympathy to the prisoners and accepted joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves a better and lasting possession.35 Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive [e]what was promised.
37 For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come, and will not delay. 38 But My righteous one will live by faith; And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.
39 But [f]we are not among those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith for the safekeeping of the soul.
