A Better Ministry1 Now the main point in what has been said is this: we have such a a high priest, who has taken His seat at b the right hand of the throne of the c Majesty in the heavens, 2 a d minister ▼
▼ Or ofin the sanctuary and ▼
▼ Or ofin the g true ▼
▼ Or sacred tenttabernacle, which the Lord i pitched, not man. 3 For every j high priest is appointed k to offer both gifts and sacrifices; so it is necessary that this high priest also have something to offer. 4 Now if He were on earth, He would not be a priest at all, since there are those who l offer the gifts according to the Law; 5 who serve m a copy and n shadow of the heavenly things, just as Moses ▼
▼ Lit has beenwas p warned by God when he was about to erect the ▼
▼ Or sacred tenttabernacle; for, r “See,” He says, “that you make all things according to the pattern which was shown you on the mountain.” 6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the s mediator of t a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.
A New Covenant7 For u if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion sought for a second. 8 For finding fault with them, He says, v “Behold, days are coming, says the Lord,
▼ Lit AndWhen I will effect x a new covenant
With the house of Israel and with the house of Judah;
9 y Not like the covenant which I made with their fathers
On the day when I took them by the hand
To lead them out of the land of Egypt;
For they did not continue in My covenant,
And I did not care for them, says the Lord.
10 z “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
After those days, says the Lord:
▼ Lit Putting my laws into...I will put My laws into their minds,
And I will write them ab on their hearts.
And I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.
11 ac “And they shall not teach everyone his fellow citizen,
And everyone his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’
For ad all will know Me,
▼ Lit small to great of themthe least to the greatest of them.
12 af “For I will be merciful to their iniquities,
ag And I will remember their sins no more.”
▼ Or In His sayingWhen He said ai “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. aj But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ▼
▼ Or nearready to disappear.
