Hebrews 91599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
9 2 Comparing the form of the Tabernacle, 10 and the ceremonies of the Law, 11 unto the truth set out in Christ, 15 he concludeth that now there is no more need of another Priest, 24 because Christ himself had fulfilled these duties under the new covenant.
2 For the first Tabernacle was made, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the showbread, which Tabernacle is called the Holy places.
4 Which had the golden censer, and the Ark of the Testament overlaid round about with gold, wherein the golden pot, which had Manna, was, and Aaron’s rod that had budded, and the tables of the Testament.
5 And over the Ark were the glorious Cherubims, shadowing the [e]mercy seat: of which things we will not now speak particularly.
6 [f]Now when these things were thus ordained, the Priest went always into the first Tabernacle, and accomplished the service.
7 But into the second went the high Priest alone, once every year, not without blood which he offered for himself, and for the [g]ignorances of the people.
8 [h]Whereby the holy Ghost this signified, that the way into the Holiest of all was not yet opened, while as yet the first tabernacle was standing,
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ which through the eternal Spirit offered himself without fault to God, purge your conscience from [t]dead works, to serve the living God?
15 [u]And for this cause is he the Mediator of the new Testament, that through death which was for the redemption of the transgressions that were in the former Testament, they which were called, might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
16 [v]For where a Testament is, there must be the death of him that made the Testament.
17 For the Testament is confirmed when men are dead: for it is yet of no force as long as he that made it, is alive.
18 [w]Wherefore, neither was the first ordained without blood.
19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to the people, [x]according to the Law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water and purple wool and hyssop, and [y]sprinkled both the book, and all the people,
20 Saying, This is the blood of the Testament, which God hath appointed unto you.
21 Moreover, he sprinkled likewise the Tabernacle with blood also, and all the ministering vessels,
22 And almost all things are by the Law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood is no remission.
23 It was then necessary, that the [z]similitudes of heavenly things should be purified with such things: but the heavenly things themselves are purified with better sacrifices than are these.
24 [aa]For Christ is not entered into the holy places that are made with hands, which are similitudes of the true Sanctuary: but is entered into very heaven, to appear now in the sight of God for us,
25 [ab]Not that he should offer himself often, as the high Priest entered into the Holy place every year with others’ blood,
27 And as it is appointed unto men that they shall [af]once die, and after that cometh the judgment:
