Hebrews 8

1 Now a summation upon the things which we are saying is this: we have such a high, priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, 2 a minister* of the holy, places and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched and not man. 3 For* every high, priest is designated, *that* he should offer both gifts and sacrifices; hence it is necessary for this one to also have something that he should offer. 4 Now if he indeed was upon the earth, he would not even be a priest, being that the priests who offer the gifts according to the law; 5 who gives, divine service to what is a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, just, as Moses had been divinely, warned when* he was about to complete the tabernacle; for* he says, You will be making* all things according to the pattern which was shown to you in the mountain. {Ex 25: 40} 6 But now he has obtained a more excellent ministry*, inasmuch as he is also the intermediary of a better covenant*, which has been instituted upon better promises.

7 For* if that first covenant * was blameless, then no place would have been sought for a second. 8 For* finding, fault with them, he says, ' Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, That I will complete a new covenant* upon the house of Israel and upon the house of Judah; 9 not according to the covenant* that I made* with their fathers in the day that I took them by my hand to lead them forth out of the land of Egypt, because they did not remain in my covenant* and I neglected them, says the Lord. 10 Because this one is the covenant* which I will covenant* with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord. I will be giving my laws into their mind and I will be writing them upon their hearts. And I will be a God to them and they will be covenanted into a people for me; 11 and they may never* need to teach, saying, Know the Lord; to each one his fellow, citizen and each one his brother, because all will know me, from the little insofar as their great ones. 12 Because I will be lenient to their unrighteousness; I may never* remember their lawlessness and their sins anymore.' {Jer. 31: 31-34}

13 In the saying, a new covenant *, the first has become, obsolete. But what becomes, obsolete and is aged, it is near to disappearing.
