    Clarke's Commentary on Hebrews 10:11

    Every priest standeth - The office of the Jewish priest is here compared with the office of our High Priest. The Jewish priest stands daily at the altar, like a servant ministering, repeating the same sacrifices; our High Priest offered himself once for all, and sat down at the right hand of God, as the only-begotten Son and Heir of all things, Hebrews 10:12. This continual offering argued the imperfection of the sacrifices. Our Lord's once offering, proves his was complete.

    Barnes' Notes on Hebrews 10:11

    And every priest standeth daily ministering - That is, this is done every day. It does not mean literally that every priest was daily concerned in offering sacrifices, for they took turns according to their courses, (notes on Luke 1:5), but that this was done each day, and that every priest was to take his regular place in doing it; Numbers 28:3. The object of the apostle is to prove that under the Jewish economy sacrifices were repeated constantly, showing their imperfection, but that under the Christian economy the great sacrifice had been offered once, which was sufficient for all.

    And offering oftentimes the same sacrifices - The same sacrifices were offered morning and evening every day.

    Which can never take away sins - notes, Hebrews 9:9; Hebrews 10:1.

    Wesley's Notes on Hebrews 10:11

    10:11 Every priest standeth - As a servant in an humble posture.
