The Earthly Sanctuary
1 Then indeed, even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service and athe earthly sanctuary.
2 For a tabernacle was prepared: the first part, in which was the lampstand, the table, and the showbread, which is called the 1sanctuary;
3 aand behind the second veil, the part of the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of All,
4 which had the agolden censer and bthe of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which were cthe golden pot that had the , dAaron’s rod that budded, and ethe tablets of the covenant;
5 and aabove it were the of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail.
Limitations of the Earthly Service
6 Now when these things had been thus prepared, athe priests always went into the first part of the tabernacle, performing the services.
7 But into the second part the high priest went alone aonce a year, not without blood, which he offered for bhimself and for the people’s sins committed in ignorance;
8 the Holy Spirit indicating this, that athe way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing.
9 It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered awhich cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience—
10 concerned only with afoods and drinks, bvarious 1washings, cand fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.
The Heavenly Sanctuary
11 But Christ came as High Priest of athe good things 1to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.
12 Not awith the blood of goats and calves, but bwith His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place conce for all, dhaving obtained eternal redemption.
13 For if athe blood of bulls and goats and bthe ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, 1sanctifies for the 2purifying of the flesh,
14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal
Spirit offered Himself without 1spot to God, acleanse your conscience from bdead works cto serve the living God?
15 And for this reason aHe is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that bthose who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
The Mediator’s Death Necessary
16 For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
17 For aa testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives.
18 aTherefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood.
19 For when Moses had spoken every 1precept to all the people according to the law, ahe took the blood of calves and goats, bwith water, wool, and , and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
20 saying, a“This is the bblood of the covenant which God has commanded you.”
21 Then likewise ahe sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry.
22 And according to the law almost all things are 1purified with blood, and awithout shedding of blood there is no 2remission.
Greatness of Christ’s Sacrifice
23 Therefore it was necessary that athe copies of the things in the heavens should be 1purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
24 For aChrist has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are 1copies of bthe true, but into heaven itself, now cto appear in the presence of God for us;
25 not that He should offer Himself often, as athe high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another—
26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
27 aAnd as it is appointed for men to die once, bbut after this the judgment,
28 so aChrist was boffered once to bear the sins cof many. To those who deagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

bcan never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once 1purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins.
3 But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year.
4 For ait is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.
Christ’s Death Fulfills God’s Will
5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said:
a“Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me.
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure.
7 Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come— In the volume of the book it is written of Me— To do Your will, O God.’ ”
8 Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law),
9 then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, 1O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second.
10 aBy that will we have been 1sanctified bthrough the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Christ’s Death Perfects the Sanctified
11 And every priest stands aministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
12 aBut this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down bat the right hand of God,
13 from that time waiting atill His enemies are made His footstool.
14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being 1sanctified.
15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,
16 a“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”
17 then He adds, a“Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
18 Now where there is 1remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.
Hold Fast Your Confession
19 Therefore, brethren, having aboldness1 to enter bthe Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
20 by a new and aliving way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,
21 and having a High Priest over the house of God,
22 let us adraw near with a true heart bin full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for aHe who promised is faithful.
24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works,
25 anot forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and bso much the more as you see cthe Day approaching.
The Just Live by Faith
26 For aif we sin willfully bafter we have received the knowledge of the truth, there cno longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and afiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three awitnesses.
29 aOf how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, bcounted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, cand insulted the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know Him who said, a“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” 1says the Lord. And again, b“The LORD will judge His people.”
31 aIt is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But arecall the former days in which, after you were 1illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings:
33 partly while you were made aa spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations, and partly while byou became companions of those who were so treated;
34 for you had compassion on 1me ain my chains, and bjoyfully accepted the plundering of your 2goods, knowing that cyou have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves 3in heaven.
35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, awhich has great reward.
36 aFor you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, byou may receive the promise:
