From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Now this is the summary of the things 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 of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord set up, and not man.
  • 3 Because, every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices. Therefore it is necessary that this Man also have something to offer.
  • 4 Because, if He were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the law;
  • 5 who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was admonished by God, when he was about to make the tabernacle. Because, He said, “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”
  • 6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.
  • 7 Because, if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second.
  • 8 Because, finding fault with them, He says: “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah,
  • 9 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 did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the LORD.”
  • 10 Because, this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be to them a God, and they will be to Me a people.
  • 11 None of them will teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ because all will know Me, from the least of them to the greatest.
  • 12 Because, I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more.”
  • 13 In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now that which has become obsolete and has become old is ready to vanish away.
