Hebrews 9:1

Even the first covenant (kai h prwth).
Kai (even) is doubtful. No word for covenant with prwte (cf. 8:7).

Had (eixe).
Imperfect active, used to have.

Ordinances (dikaiwmata).
Regulations (from dikaiow) as in Luke 1:6; Romans 5:16.

Of divine service (latreiav).
No word for "divine," though worship is meant as in Romans 9:4; Philippians 3:3. Genitive case.

And its sanctuary, a sanctuary of this world (to te agion kosmikon).
By to agion the author describes the whole sanctuary ( Exodus 36:3; Numbers 3:38) like twn agiwn in Hebrews 8:2. Kosmikon is a late adjective (Aristotle, Plutarch) from kosmov, relating to this world, like epi ghv (upon earth) of 8:4. It is in the predicate position, not attributive.
