Heb. 9:7‑14• 7But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
8The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
9Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
10Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.

 There {in Christ} was found the righteousness of God, there the stumblingstone to Israel. (Romans 10 by J.N. Darby)
 The article "the" is not in the text before "law." This indicates that he is not referring to the Law of Moses specifically, but to the principle of man's performance being a way in which one attains to righteousness. (The Responsibility of Man Israel's Present Rejection by B. Anstey)
 Every attempt of man in the flesh attaining to righteousness on the basis of human merit and performance has failed. God has, therefore, brought the testing to a close, and has "condemned sin in the flesh" in the death of Christ (chap. 6:6; 8:3). The word "end" here is "teles" in the Greek, which means "completion." (The Responsibility of Man Israel's Present Rejection by B. Anstey)
 By adding "to everyone that believeth," Paul is indicating that the only way in which one can be reckoned righteous is through believing. (The Responsibility of Man Israel's Present Rejection by B. Anstey)
