Hebrews   10: 4-10

10:4 For it is impossible for sins to be taken away by the blood of oxen and goats.
10:5 For this reason, as Christ enters into the world, he says: “Sacrifice and oblation, you did not want. But you have fashioned a body for me.
10:6 Holocausts for sin were not pleasing to you.
10:7 Then I said, ‘Behold, I draw near.’ At the head of the book, it has been written of me that I should do your will, O God.”
10:8 In the above, by saying, “Sacrifices, and oblations, and holocausts for sin, you did not want, nor are those things pleasing to you, which are offered according to the law;
10:9 then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God,’ ” he takes away the first, so that he may establish what follows.
10:10 For by this will, we have been sanctified, through the one time oblation of the body of Jesus Christ.
