Need for a New Priesthood(A)

11 (B)Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron?

The Penalty for Uzziah’s Pride(A)

16 But (B)when he was strong his heart was (C)lifted up, to his destruction, for he transgressed against the Lord his God (D)by entering the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 So (E)Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him were eighty priests of the Lord—valiant men. 18 And they withstood King Uzziah, and said to him, “It (F)is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord, but for the (G)priests, the sons of Aaron, who are consecrated to burn incense. Get out of the sanctuary, for you have trespassed! You shall have no honor from the Lord God.”

19 Then Uzziah became furious; and he had a censer in his hand to burn incense. And while he was angry with the priests, (H)leprosy broke out on his forehead, before the priests in the house of the Lord, beside the incense altar. 20 And Azariah the chief priest and all the priests looked at him, and there, on his forehead, he was leprous; so they thrust him out of that place. Indeed he also (I)hurried to get out, because the Lord had struck him.

21 (J)King Uzziah was a leper until the day of his death. He dwelt in an (K)isolated house, because he was a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the Lord. Then Jotham his son was over the king’s house, judging the people of the land.
