The Earthly Ministry of the Old Covenant

1 Nowa the first [covenant] had regulations for worship and the earthly sanctuary. 2 For a tent was prepared, the first [one], in which [were] the lampstand and the table and the presentation of the loaves, which is called the holy place. 3 And after the second curtain [was] a tent called the holy of holies, 4 containing the golden incense altar and the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which [were] a golden jar containing the manna and the rod of Aaron that budded and the tablets of the covenant. 5 And above it [were] the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat, about which it is not now [possible] to speak in detail. 6 Now these things having been prepared in this way, the priests enter into the first tent {continually}b [as they]c accomplish their service, 7 but only the high priest [enters] into the second [tent] once a year, not without blood, which he offers on behalf of himself and the [sins] of the people committed in ignorance. 8 The Holy Spirit [was] making this clear, [that] the way [into] the holy place [was] not yet revealed, [while]d the first tent was still in existence, 9 which [was] a symbol for the present time, in which both the gifts and sacrifices which were offered were not able to perfect the worshiper with respect to the conscience, 10 concerning [instead] only food and drink and different washings, regulations of outward things imposed until the time of setting [things] right.
