Hebrews 8 Maori Bible (MAORI)
8 Na, ko te tino tenei o enei korero: He tohunga pera to tatou, kua noho ki matau o te torona o te Nui i nga rangi;
2 He minita mo te wahi tapu, mo te tapenakara pono, tona kaiwhakaara nei ko te Ariki, ehara i te tangata.
3 Ko nga tohunga nui katoa hoki, he mea whakarite hei tapae atu i nga whakahere, i nga patunga tapu: na konei hoki i tika ai kia whai mea ano tenei tohunga nui hei tapaenga atu mana.
4 Me i runga hoki ia i te whenua kahore ona tohungatanga; tenei hoki nga tohunga hei tapae i nga whakahere i runga i ta te ture.
5 Ko ta ratou mahi he ritenga, he atarangi no nga mea i te rangi, he pera ano me te mea i tohutohungia ki a Mohi, i a ia meake hanga i te tapenakara: i mea hoki ia, Kia mahara kia hanga e koe nga mea katoa kia rite ki te tauira i whakakitea ki a ko e i runga i te maunga.
6 Tena ko tenei he nui ke te mahi minita kua riro nei i a ia, he pai rawa hoki te kawenata ko tona takawaenga nei ko ia, he pai rawa hoki nga kupu whakaari, i whakatakotoria ai taua kawenata.
7 Mehemea hoki kihai i whai he taua kawenata o mua, e kore e rapua he wahi mo te tuarua.
8 I a ia hoki e whakahe ana, i mea ia ki a ratou, Nana, tenei ake ko nga ra, e ai ta te Ariki, e whakaritea ai e ahau he kawenata hou ki te whare o Iharaira, ki te whare ano hoki o Hura:
9 E kore e rite ki te kawenata i whakaritea e ahau ki o ratou matua, i arahi mai ai i a ratou i te whenua o Ihipa; kihai nei hoki ratou i u ki taku kawenata, a kore ake oku whakaaro ki a ratou, e ai ta te Ariki.
10 Ko te kawenata hoki tenei e whakarite ai ahau ki te whare o Iharaira i muri iho i aua ra, e ai ta te Ariki; ka hoatu e ahau aku ture ki o ratou hinengaro, ka tuhituhia ano hoki ki o ratou ngakau: ko ahau hei Atua mo ratou, ko ratou hoki hei iwi maku:
11 E kore ano hoki ratou e whakaako i tona hoa, i tona hoa, i tona teina, i tona tuakana, e mea, Kia matau koe ki te Ariki: e matau katoa hoki ratou ki ahau, te nohinohi o ratou, te nui ano hoki o ratou.
12 Ka mahi tohu hoki ahau ki o ratou kino, e kore ano hoki e maharatia e ahau o ratou hara a mua ake nei.
13 I a ia i mea, he kawenata hou, kua whakatawhitotia e ia te mea tuatahi. Na, ko te mea kua tawhitotia, kua koroheketia, ka tata te memeha.
Hebrews 8 New International Version (NIV)
The High Priest of a New Covenant
8 Now the main point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, 2 and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by a mere human being.
3 Every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices, and so it was necessary for this one also to have something to offer. 4 If he were on earth, he would not be a priest, for there are already priests who offer the gifts prescribed by the law. 5 They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: “See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”[a] 6 But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises.
7 For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another. 8 But God found fault with the people and said[b]:
“The days are coming, declares the Lord,
13 By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.
