Hebrews 9 ©
The service and sacrifices of the first tabernacle were far less perfect and efficacious to purge the conscience than the blood of Christ. The necessity of Christ's death for the confirmation of the new covenant: and of better sacrifices than those legal ones to purify the heavenly things. Christ was offered once for all.
For cthere was a *tabernacle made; the first, dwherein was ethe candlestick, and fthe table, and gthe shewbread; which is called 2the sanctuary.
Which ihad the golden censer, and jthe ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was kthe golden pot that had manna, and lAaron's rod that budded, and mthe tables of the covenant;
But Christ xbeing come an high priest of good things to come, by ya greater and more perfect *tabernacle, not zmade with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
How much more shall the cblood of Christ, who dthrough the eternal Spirit eoffered himself fwithout 4spot to God, gpurge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
hAnd for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption iof the transgressions that were under the first testament, jthey which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
For where a testament is, there must also of necessity 5be the death of the testator.
kFor a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are tthe figures of the true; but uinto heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
So bChrist was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that clook for him dshall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
