Hebrews 10:1

Shadow (skian).
The contrast here between skia (shadow, shade caused by interruption of light as by trees, Mark 4:32) and eikwn (image or picture) is striking. Christ is the eikwn of God (2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15). In Colossians 2:17 Paul draws a distinction between skia for the Jewish rites and ceremonies and swma for the reality in Christ. Children are fond of shadow pictures. The law gives only a dim outline of the good things to come (9:11).

Continually (eiv to dihnekev).
See this phrase also in 7:3; 9:12,14. Nowhere else in N.T. From dihnegka (diaperw), to bear through.

They can (dunantai).
This reading leaves o nomov a nominativus pendens (an anacoluthon). But many MSS. read dunatai (it--the law--can). For the idea and use of teleiwsai see 9:9.
