Hebrews 8:1-6 (Lexham English Bible)

The Mediator of a New and Better Covenant

1 Now [this is] the main point in what has been said: we have a high priest such as this, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, 2 a minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord set up, not man. 3 For every high priest is appointed in order to offer both gifts and sacrifices; therefore [it was]a necessary [for] this one also to have something that he offers. 4 Now if he were on earth, he would not even be a priest, [because there]b are those who offer the gifts according to the law, 5 who serve a sketch and shadow of the heavenly [things], just as Moses was warned [when he]c was about to complete the tabernacle, for he says, "See to it that you make everything according to the pattern which was shown to you on the mountain."d 6 But now he has attained a more excellent ministry, by as much as he is also mediator of a better covenant which has been enacted upon better promises.
