058:008:001
Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum:
We have such an high priest,
who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;


058:008:002
A minister of the sanctuary,
and of the true tabernacle,
which the Lord pitched,
and not man.


058:008:003
For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices:
wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.


058:008:004
For if he were on earth,
he should not be a priest,
seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:


058:008:005
Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things,
as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle:
for,
See,
saith he,
that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.


058:008:006
But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry,
by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant,
which was established upon better promises.


058:008:007
For if that first covenant had been faultless,
then should no place have been sought for the second.


058:008:008
For finding fault with them,
he saith,
Behold,
the days come,
saith the Lord,
when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:


058:008:009
Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt;
because they continued not in my covenant,
and I regarded them not,
saith the Lord.


058:008:010
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,
saith the Lord;
I will put my laws into their mind,
and write them in their hearts:
and I will be to them a God,
and they shall be to me a people:


058:008:011
And they shall not teach every man his neighbour,
and every man his brother,
saying,
Know the Lord:
for all shall know me,
from the least to the greatest.


058:008:012
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness,
and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.


058:008:013
In that he saith,
A new covenant,
he hath made the first old.
Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
