8 Now the chief point is this: We have such a high priest, who sat in the heavens on the throne of the Majesty, 2 the minister of the sanctuary, and the veritable tabernacle, which the Lord hath founded, and not the -mem. 3 For every high priest is made to offer gifts and sacrifices; So it was necessary that this high priest also had something to offer. 4 Now if he had any in the land, neither would he be a priest, and there are those who offer gifts according to the law, 5 who serve as the figure and the shadows of heavenly things, as Moses was divinely warned when he was to build The tabernacle: for it was said unto him, See, do all according to the pattern which was shown thee in the mount. 6 But now he hath obtained a more excellent ministry, and a mediator of the best covenant, which is established under the best of promises. 7 For if that first had been without blemish, he would never have sought a place for the second. 8 For rebuking them says, The days draw near, says YEHWH, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Yisrael and with the house of Yehudah. 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand, to bring them out of the land of Egypt; For they did not abide in that covenant of mine, and I did not hearken unto them, saith Jehovah. 10 Now this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Yisrael, after those days, says YEHWH; I will put my law in their understanding, and write it in their hearts; I will be their God, and they shall be my people; 11 And he shall not teach every one to his neighbor, and not every man to his brother, saying, Know ye the LORD; For all shall know me, from the least of them unto the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful unto their iniquities, and of their sins I will remember no more.
9 And the first covenant also had ordinances of sacred service, and an earthly sanctuary. 2 For a tent was made, the first, wherein was the lamp, and the table, and the loaves of the proposal: the same is called the holy place: 3 But after the second veil was the tent that was called the holy of holies, 4 which had the censer of gold, and the ark of the covenant, all of gold round about; In which was a golden vessel, which contained the manna, and the rod of Aaron that had sprouted, and the tables of the covenant; 5 And over the ark were the cherubims of glory, which covered the mercy seat; Of which things we will not speak now particularly. 6 Now when these things are thus prepared, the priests continually enter into the first tabernacle, and perform the holy services; 7 but in the second only the high priest, once a year, not without blood, which he offers for himself and for the errors of the people; 8 giving YEHWH the Spirit to understand thereby, that the way of the sanctuary is not uncovered, while the first tent stands, 9 which is a parable for the present time, according to which both gifts and sacrifices are offered, Can perfect the one who gives worship; 10 being only, in regard to food, and various ablutions, an ordinance of the flesh, imposed until the time of reformation. 11 But the Messiah, having come as a high priest of the goods already made, by the greatest and most perfect tabernacle (not made by hands, that is, not by this creation), 12 and not by the blood of goats and bullocks, but by his Own blood entered once and for all in the holy place, having obtained an eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a sprinkling ashes sanctifies those who are defiled as to the cleansing of the flesh, 14 How much more the blood of Yehoshu, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to YEHWH, Will you cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, when death intercedes for the remission of the transgressions committed under the first covenant, the called ones receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. 16 For where there is a testament, it is necessary for the testator to die. 17 For a testament has no strength except by death, since it has no value while the testator lives. 18 Wherefore not the first covenant was consecrated without blood; 19 For when Moshe had preached to all the people all the commandments according to the Torah; Took the blood of the bullocks and the goats with water, wool, and purple, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, 20 saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which YHWH has ordained for you. 21 He also sprinkled with blood the tabernacle and all the vessels of the holy service. 22 And almost all things according to the Torah, it is purified with blood; And without shedding of blood there is no remission. 23 Therefore it was necessary that the images of the things which are in heaven should be purified with such sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with sacrifices better than these. 24 For Yehoshu ‘did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands, a figure of the true, but
