The Old and the New

1 Now even the first covenant had 1regulations of divine worship and 2the earthly sanctuary. 2 For there was 3a atabernacle prepared, the bouter one, in which were 4the lampstand and 5the table and 6the csacred bread; this is called the holy place. 3 Behind 7the second veil there was a dtabernacle which is called the 8Holy of Holies, 4 having a golden e9altar of incense and 10the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which was 11a golden jar holding the manna, and 12Aaron's rod which budded, and 13the tables of the covenant; 5 and above it were the 14cherubim of glory 15overshadowing the mercy seat; but of these things we cannot now speak in detail. 6 Now when these things have been so prepared, the priests 16are continually entering the fouter gtabernacle performing the divine worship, 7 but into 17the second, only 18the high priest enters 19once a year, 20not without taking blood, which he 21offers for himself and for the h22sins of the people committed in ignorance. 8 23The Holy Spirit is signifying this, 24that the way into the holy place has not yet been disclosed while the iouter tabernacle is still standing, 9 which is a symbol for the present time. Accordingly 25both gifts and sacrifices are offered which 26cannot make the worshiper perfect in conscience, 10 since they relate only to 27food and 28drink and various 29washings, 30regulations for the jbody imposed until 31a time of reformation.
