Hebrews 10:8
Good News Translation
First he said, "You neither want nor are you pleased with sacrifices and offerings or with animals burned on the altar and the sacrifices to take away sins." He said this even though all these sacrifices are offered according to the Law.

Contemporary English Version
The Law teaches that offerings and sacrifices must be made because of sin. But why did Christ mention these things and say that God did not want them?

Douay-Rheims Bible
In saying before, Sacrifices, and oblations, and holocausts for sin thou wouldest not, neither are they pleasing to thee, which are offered according to the law.
