Hebrews 8Modern English Version (MEV)
Jesus Our High Priest
8 Now this is the main point of the things that we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, 2 a minister in the sanctuary and the true tabernacle, which the Lord, not man, set up.
3 For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices. Therefore it is necessary that this priest also have something to offer. 4 For if He were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests that offer gifts according to the law. 5 They serve in a sanctuary that is an example and shadow of the heavenly one, as Moses was instructed by God when he was about to make the tabernacle, “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”[a] 6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, because He is the Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.
7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no occasion would have been sought for a second. 8 For finding fault with them, God says:
“Surely the days are coming, says the Lord,
13 In speaking of a new covenant He has made the first one old. Now that which is decaying and growing old is ready to vanish away.
