Hebrews 8

Now the sum of the whole is this, we have a High Priest, who is seated on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven: And he is the minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which God hath pitched, and not man. For every high priest is established, to offer oblations and sacrifices; and therefore, it was proper that this one should also have something to offer. And if he were on earth, he would not be a priest; because there are priests there, who offer oblations agreeably to the law: namely they, who minister in the emblem and shadow of the things in heaven: as it was said to Moses, when he was about to build the tabernacle, See, and make every thing according to the pattern which was showed thee in the mount. But now, Jesus the Messiah hath received a ministry which is better than that: as also the covenant, of which he is made the Mediator, is better, and is given with better promises than the former. For, if the first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no place for this second one. For he chideth them and saith: Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will complete with the family of the house of Israel, and with the family of the house of Judah, a new covenant; not like the covenant which I gave to their fathers, in the day when I took them by the hand, and brought them out of the land of Egypt; and because they continued not in my covenant, I also rejected them, saith the Lord. 10 But this is the covenant which I will give to the family of the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord: I will put my law in their minds, and inscribe it on their hearts; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people. 11 And one shall not teach his fellow-citizen, nor his brother, nor say: Know thou the Lord: because they shall all know me, from the youngest of them to the oldest. 12 And I will forgive them their iniquity; and their sins will I remember no more. 13 In that he said a New Covenant, he made the first old; and that which is old and decaying, is near to dissolution.
