11 But when Christ appeared as a (A)high priest of the (B)good things [a]to come, He entered through (C)the greater and more perfect [b]tabernacle, (D)not made with hands, that is to say, (E)not of this creation; 12 and not through (F)the blood of goats and calves, but (G)through His own blood, He (H)entered the holy place (I)once for all, [c]having obtained (J)eternal redemption. 13 For if (K)the blood of goats and bulls and (L)the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the [d]cleansing of the flesh, 14 how much more will (M)the blood of Christ, who through [e](N)the eternal Spirit (O)offered Himself without blemish to God, (P)cleanse [f]your conscience from (Q)dead works to serve (R)the living God?

15 For this reason (S)He is the (T)mediator of a (U)new 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 (V)called may (W)receive the promise of (X)the eternal inheritance. 16 For where a [g]covenant is, there must of necessity [h]be the death of the one who made it.
