a body

Hebrews 10:5

10:5 a body. “Mine ears hast thou opened” (Psalm 40:6) is here translated as “a body hast thou prepared me.” The openings in the ear of an indentured servant (see Exodus 21:6) indicated the intent of that servant to serve his master forever, as it were, hearing only the voice of his master and doing only his will henceforth. This was a type of Christ, who willingly became a bondservant (Philippians 2:5-8), willing even to die in accord with His Father’s will. But before He could do this, He had to have a human body, with human ears.
