New International Version
3 Behind the second curtain was a room called the Most Holy Place,(A) 4 which had the golden altar of incense(B) and the gold-covered ark of the covenant.(C) This ark contained the gold jar of manna,(D) Aaron’s staff that had budded,(E) and the stone tablets of the covenant.(F) 5 Above the ark were the cherubim of the Glory,(G) overshadowing the atonement cover.(H) But we cannot discuss these things in detail now.
6 When everything had been arranged like this, the priests entered regularly(I) into the outer room to carry on their ministry. 7 But only the high priest entered(J) the inner room,(K) and that only once a year,(L) and never without blood,(M) which he offered for himself(N) and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.(O) 8 The Holy Spirit was showing(P) by this that the way(Q) into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still functioning.
