The Old and the New

1 Now even the first covenant had regulations R298 of divine worship and the R299 earthly sanctuary. 2 For there was a R300 tabernacle F76 prepared, the outer F77 one, in which were the R301 lampstand and the R302 table and the R303 sacred F78 bread; this is called the holy place. 3 Behind the R304 second veil there was a tabernacle F79 which is called the Holy R305 of Holies, 4 having a golden altar R306 F80 of incense and the R307 ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which was a R308 golden jar holding the manna, and Aaron's R309 rod which budded, and the R310 tables of the covenant; 5 and above it were the cherubim R311 of glory overshadowing R312 the mercy seat; but of these things we cannot now speak in detail.

6 Now when these things have been so prepared, the priests are R313 continually entering the outer F81 tabernacle F82 performing the divine worship, 7 but into the R314 second, only the R315 high priest enters once R316 a year, not R317 without taking blood, which he offers R318 for himself and for the sins R319 F83 of the people committed in ignorance. 8 The R320 Holy Spirit is signifying this, that R321 the way into the holy place has not yet been disclosed while the outer F84 tabernacle is still standing, 9 which is a symbol for the present time. Accordingly both R322 gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot R323 make the worshiper perfect in conscience, 10 since they relate only to food R324 and drink R325 and various washings, R326 regulations R327 for the body F85 imposed until a R328 time of reformation.

11 But when Christ appeared as a high R329 priest of the good R330 things to F86 come, He entered through the R331 greater and more perfect tabernacle, F87 not R332 made with hands, that is to say, not R333 of this creation; 12 and not through the R334 blood of goats and calves, but through R335 His own blood, He entered R336 the holy place once R337 for all, having F88 obtained eternal R338 redemption. 13 For if the R339 blood of goats and bulls and the R340 ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing F89 of the flesh, 14 how much more will the R341 blood of Christ, who through the R342 F90 eternal Spirit offered R343 Himself without blemish to God, cleanse R344 your F91 conscience from dead R345 works to serve the R346 living God?

15 For this reason He R347 is the mediator R348 of a new R349 covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called R350 may receive R351 the promise of the R352 eternal inheritance. 16 For where a covenant F92 is, there must of necessity be F93 the death of the one who made it. 17 For a covenant F94 is valid only when men F95 are dead, for F96 it is never in force while the one who made it lives. 18 Therefore even the first covenant was not inaugurated without blood. 19 For when every commandment had been spoken R353 by Moses to all the people according to the Law, he R354 took the blood R355 of the calves and the goats, with water R356 and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the R357 book itself and all the people, 20 saying, "THIS R358 IS THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT WHICH GOD COMMANDED YOU." 21 And in the same way he sprinkled R359 both the tabernacle F97 and all the vessels of the ministry with the blood. 22 And according to the Law, F98 one may almost R360 say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without R361 shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

23 Therefore it was necessary for the copies R362 of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the R362 heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did R363 not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the R364 true one, but into heaven R365 itself, now to R366 appear in the presence of God for us; 25 nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the R367 high priest enters the R368 holy place year R367 by year with blood that is not his own. 26 Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the R369 foundation of the world; but now once R370 at the R371 consummation of the ages He has been manifested R372 to put away sin by R373 F99 the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And inasmuch as it R374 is appointed F100 for men to die once and after this comes R375 judgment, 28 so Christ also, having been offered R376 once to bear R377 the sins of many, will appear a R378 second time for salvation R379 without R380 reference to sin, to those who eagerly R381 await Him.
