Christ’s Perfect Sacrifice
(Psalm 40:1–17)

1For the lawe, hauyng the shadow of good thynges to come, and not the very fashion of the thinges the selues, can neuer with those sacrifices whiche they offer yere by yere continually, make the commers therevnto perfect. 2For woulde not then those sacrifices haue ceassed to haue ben offred, because that the offerers once pourged, shoulde haue had no more conscience of sinnes? 3Neuerthelesse, in those (sacrifices) is mention made of sinnes euery yere. 4For it is not possible that the blood of Bulles & of Goates shoulde take away sinnes.

5Wherfore when he commeth into the worlde, he saith: Sacrifice and offring thou wouldest not haue, but a body hast thou ordeyned me.

6In burnt sacrifices & sinne (offerynges) thou hast had no pleasure.

7Then sayde I, lo I come (In the begynnyng of the booke it is written of me) to do thy wyll O God.

8Aboue when he saith, that sacrifice, and offeryng, and burnt offeringes, and sinne offerynges thou wouldest not, neither haddest pleasure therein (which are offered by the lawe:) 9Then sayde he, lo I come, to do thy wyll, O God. He taketh away ye first to stablyshe the seconde. 10In ye which wyll we are made holy, euen by the offeryng of the body of Iesus Christe once for all.

11And euery priest standeth dayly ministryng, & offeryng oftentymes the same sacrifices, whiche can neuer take away sinnes. 12But this man, after he hath offered one sacrifice for sinnes, is sit downe for euer on the ryght hande of God: 13From hencefoorth tarying tyl his foes be made his footstoole. 14For with one offeryng hath he made perfite for euer them that are sanctified. 15And the holy ghost also beareth vs recorde: For after that he tolde before,

16This is the couenaunt that I wyll make vnto them after those dayes, (sayth the Lorde) geuyng my lawes in their heart, and in their myndes wyl I write them:

17And their sinnes and iniquities wyll I remember no more.

18And where remission of these thinges is there is no more offering for sinne.

A Call to Persevere
(Jude 1:17–23)

19Hauyng therefore brethren, libertie to enter into holy places in the blood of Iesus, 20By the new and lyuing way, which he hath prepared for vs through the vayle, that is to say his flesshe: 21And seyng we haue an hye priest ouer the house of God: 22Let vs drawe nye with a true hearte, in assuraunce of fayth, sprinkeled in our heartes from an euyll conscience, and wasshed in body with pure water. 23Let vs holde the profession of the hope without waueryng, (for he is faythfull that promised:) 24And let vs consider one another to prouoke vnto loue and good workes, 25Not forsakyng the assemblyng of our selues together, as the maner of some is but exhortyng one (another) and so much the more, as ye see the day approchyng.

26For yf we sinne wyllyngly after that we haue receaued the knowledge of the trueth, there remayneth no more sacrifice for sinnes: 27But a fearefull lokyng for of iudgement, and violent fire, whiche shall deuour the aduersaries. 28He that despiseth Moyses lawe, dyeth without mercie vnder two or thre witnesses: 29Of howe muche sorer punyshement (suppose ye) shall he be worthy, whiche treadeth vnder foote the sonne of God? and counteth the blood of the couenaut wherein he was sanctified, an vnholye thyng, and doth despite to the spirite of grace? 30For we knowe hym that hath sayde, vengeaunce belongeth vnto me, I wyl render saith the Lorde: And agayne, the Lorde shall iudge his people. 31It is a fearefull thyng to fall into the handes of the lyuyng God.

32Call to remebraunce the former dayes, in the which after ye had receaued light ye endured a great fyght of aduersities: 33Partly whyle ye were made a gasing stocke, both by reproches & afflictions, and partly whyle ye became companions of them whiche were so tossed to & fro. 34For ye suffred also with my bondes, & toke in woorth the spoylyng of your goodes with gladnesse: knowyng in your selues how that ye haue in heauen a better and an enduryng substaunce. 35Cast not awaye therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of rewarde. 36For ye haue neede of pacience, that after ye haue done the wyll of God, ye myght receaue the promise.

37For yet a very litle whyle, and he that shall come, wyll come, and wyll not tary.

38And the iuste shall lyue by fayth: And yf he withdrawe hym selfe, my soule shall haue no pleasure in hym.

39We are not of them that withdrawe our selues vnto perdition: but we parteyne vnto fayth, to the wynning of the soule.
