Hebreus

1. Now of the things we are saying this is the chief point: We have such a high priest, who has taken his place at the right hand of God's high seat of glory in heaven,

2. As a servant of the holy things and of the true Tent, which was put up by God, not by man.

3. Now every high priest is given authority to take to God the things which are given and to make offerings; so that it is necessary for this man, like them, to have something for an offering.

4. If he had been on earth he would not have been a priest at all, because there are other priests who make the offerings ordered by the law;

5. Being servants of that which is a copy and an image of the things in heaven, as Moses, when he was about to make the Tent, had special orders from God: for, See, he said, that you make everything like the design which you saw in the mountain.

6. But now his position as priest is higher. because through him God has made a better agreement with man, based on the giving of better things.

7. For if that first agreement had been as good as possible, there would have been no place for a second.

8. For, protesting against them, he says, See, the days are coming when I will make a new agreement with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah;

9. Not like the agreement which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand, to be their guide out of the land of Egypt; for they did not keep the agreement with me, and I gave them up, says the Lord.

10. For this is the agreement which I will make with the people of Israel after those days: I will put my laws into their minds, writing them in their hearts: and I will be their God, and they will be my people:

11. And there will be no need for every man to be teaching his brother, or his neighbour, saying, This is the knowledge of the Lord: for they will all have knowledge of me, great and small.

12. And I will have mercy on their evil-doing, and I will not keep their sins in mind.

13. When he says, A new agreement, he has made the first agreement old. But anything which is getting old and past use will not be seen much longer.

1. Now the first agreement had its rules of worship, and a holy order.

2. For the first Tent was made ready, having in it the vessels for the lights and the table and the ordering of the bread; and this is named the holy place.

3. And inside the second veil was the place which is named the Holy of holies;

4. Having a vessel of gold in it for burning perfumes, and the ark of the agreement, which was covered with gold and which had in it a pot made of gold for the manna, and Aaron's rod which put out buds, and the stones with the writing of the agreement;

5. And over it were the winged ones of glory with their wings covering the mercy-seat; about which it is not possible now to say anything in detail.

6. Now while these things were in existence, the priests went into the first Tent at all times, for prayer and the making of offerings.

7. But only the high priest went into the second, once a year, not without making an offering of blood for himself and for the errors of the people:

8. The Holy Spirit witnessing by this that the way into the holy place had not at that time been made open, while the first Tent was still in being;

9. And this is an image of the present time; when the offerings which are given are not able to make the heart of the worshipper completely clean,

10. Because they are only rules of the flesh, of meats and drinks and washings, which have their place till the time comes when things will be put right.

11. But now Christ has come as the high priest of the good things of the future, through this greater and better Tent, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this world,

12. And has gone once and for ever into the holy place, having got eternal salvation, not through the blood of goats and young oxen, but through his blood.

13. For if the blood of goats and oxen, and the dust from the burning of a young cow, being put on the unclean, make the flesh clean:

14. How much more will the blood of Christ, who, being without sin, made an offering of himself to God through the Holy Spirit, make your hearts clean from dead works to be servants of the living God?

15. And for this cause it is through him that a new agreement has come into being, so that after the errors under the first agreement had been taken away by his death, the word of God might have effect for those who were marked out for an eternal heritage.

16. Because where there is a testament, there has to be the death of the man who made it.

17. For a testament has effect after death; for what power has it while the man who made it is living?

18. So that even the first agreement was not made without blood.

19. For when Moses had given all the rules of the law to the people, he took the blood of goats and young oxen, with water and red wool and hyssop, and put it on the book itself and on all the people,

20. Saying, This blood is the sign of the agreement which God has made with you.

21. And the blood was put on the Tent and all the holy vessels in the same way.

22. And by the law almost all things are made clean with blood, and without blood there is no forgiveness.
