1. Now a summary of the things of which we are speaking {is}, We have such a one high priest who has sat down on {the} right hand of the throne of the greatness in the heavens;

2. minister of the holy places and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord has pitched, {and} not man.

3. For every high priest is constituted for the offering both of gifts and sacrifices; whence it is needful that this one also should have something which he may offer.

4. If then indeed he were upon earth, he would not even be a priest, there being those who offer the gifts according to the law,

5. (who serve the representation and shadow of heavenly things, according as Moses was oracularly told {when} about to make the tabernacle; for See, saith He, that thou make all things according to the pattern which has been shewn to thee in the mountain.)

6. But now he has got a more excellent ministry, by so much as he is mediator of a better covenant, which is established on the footing of better promises.

7. For if that first was faultless, place had not been sought for a second.

8. For finding fault, he says to them, Behold, days come, saith the Lord, and I will consummate a new covenant as regards the house of Israel, and as regards the house of Juda;

9. not according to the covenant which I made to their fathers in {the} day of my taking their hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because *they* did not continue in my covenant, and *I* did not regard them, saith {the} Lord.

10. Because this {is} the covenant that I will covenant to the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord: Giving my laws into their mind, I will write them also upon their hearts; and I will be to them for God, and *they* shall be to me for people.

11. And they shall not teach each his fellow-citizen, and each his brother, saying, Know the Lord; because all shall know me in themselves, from {the} little one {among them} unto {the} great among them.

12. Because I will be merciful to their unrighteousnesses, and their sins and their lawlessnesses I will never remember any more.

13. In that he says New, he has made the first old; but that which grows old and aged {is} near disappearing.

1. The first therefore also indeed had ordinances of service, and the sanctuary, a worldly one.

2. For a tabernacle was set up; the first, in which {were} both the candlestick and the table and the exposition of the loaves, which is called Holy;

3. but after the second veil a tabernacle which is called Holy of holies,

4. having a golden censer, and the ark of the covenant, covered round in every part with gold, in which {were} the golden pot that had the manna, and the rod of Aaron that had sprouted, and the tables of the covenant;

5. and above over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy-seat; concerning which it is not now {the time} to speak in detail.

6. Now these things being thus ordered, into the first tabernacle the priests enter at all times, accomplishing the services;

7. but into the second, the high priest only, once a year, not without blood, which he offers for himself and for the errors of the people:

8. the Holy Spirit shewing this, that the way of the {holy of} holies has not yet been made manifest while as yet the first tabernacle has {its} standing;

9. the which {is} an image for the present time, according to which both gifts and sacrifices, unable to perfect as to conscience him that worshipped, are offered,

10. {consisting} only of meats and drinks and divers washings, ordinances of flesh, imposed until {the} time of setting things right.

11. But Christ being come high priest of the good things to come, by the better and more perfect tabernacle not made with hand, (that is, not of this creation,)

12. nor by blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood, has entered in once for all into the {holy of} holies, having found an eternal redemption.

13. For if the blood of goats and bulls, and a heifer's ashes sprinkling the defiled, sanctifies for the purity of the flesh,

14. how much rather shall the blood of the Christ, who by the eternal Spirit offered himself spotless to God, purify your conscience from dead works to worship {the} living God?

15. And for this reason he is mediator of a new covenant, so that, death having taken place for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, the called might receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

16. (For where {there is} a testament, the death of the testator must needs come in.

17. For a testament {is} of force when men are dead, since it is in no way of force while the testator is alive.)

18. Whence neither the first was inaugurated without blood.

19. For every commandment having been spoken according to {the} law by Moses to all the people; having taken the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, he sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,

20. saying, This {is} the blood of the covenant which God has enjoined to you.

21. And the tabernacle too and all the vessels of service he sprinkled in like manner with blood;

22. and almost all things are purified with blood according to the law, and without blood-shedding there is no remission.
