13 For if (A)the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with (B)the ashes of a heifer, sanctify[a] for the purification of the flesh, 14 how much more will (C)the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit (D)offered himself without blemish to God, (E)purify our[b] conscience (F)from dead works (G)to serve the living God.

15 Therefore he is (H)the mediator of a new covenant, so that (I)those who are called may (J)receive the promised eternal inheritance, (K)since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.[c]
