Hebrews 8:5-13 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
5 who serve 1a copy and 2shadow of the heavenly things, just as Moses awas 3warned by God when he was about to erect the btabernacle; for, "4SEE," He says, "THAT YOU MAKE all things ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN WHICH WAS SHOWN YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN." 6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the 5mediator of 6a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.

A New Covenant

7 For 7if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion sought for a second. 8 For finding fault with them, He says, "8BEHOLD, DAYS ARE COMING, SAYS THE LORD, cWHEN I WILL EFFECT 9A NEW COVENANT WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND WITH THE HOUSE OF JUDAH; 9 10NOT LIKE THE COVENANT WHICH I MADE WITH THEIR FATHERS ON THE DAY WHEN I TOOK THEM BY THE HAND TO LEAD THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT; FOR THEY DID NOT CONTINUE IN MY COVENANT, AND I DID NOT CARE FOR THEM, SAYS THE LORD. 10 "11FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: dI WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS, AND I WILL WRITE THEM 12ON THEIR HEARTS. AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 11 13AND THEY SHALL NOT TEACH EVERYONE HIS FELLOW CITIZEN, AND EVERYONE HIS BROTHER, SAYING, 'KNOW THE LORD,' FOR 14ALL WILL KNOW ME, FROM eTHE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM. 12 "15FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR INIQUITIES, 16AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE." 13 fWhen He said, "17A new covenant," He has made the first obsolete. 18But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is gready to disappear.
