Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
a. ASV: Then hath he said, Lo, I am come to do thy will. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
b. YLT: Then he said, 'Lo, I come to do, O God, Thy will;' he doth take away the first that the second he may establish;
d. Amplified Bible Classic: He then went on to say, Behold, [here] I am, coming to do Your will. Thus He does away with and annuls the first (former) order [as a means of expiating sin] so that He might inaugurate and establish the second (latter) order.
