For thisreason1He is the 2mediator of a 3newcovenant, so that, since a death has takenplace for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the firstcovenant, those who have been 4called may 5receive the promise of 6the eternalinheritance.
For where a acovenant is, there must of necessitybbe the death of the one who made it.
For a ccovenant is valid only when dmen are dead, efor it is never in forcewhile the one who made it lives.
18Thereforeeven the first covenant was not inauguratedwithoutblood.
For when everycommandment had been 7spoken by Moses to all the peopleaccording to the Law, 8he took the 9blood of the calves and the goats, with 10water and scarletwool and hyssop, and sprinkledboth11the bookitself and all the people,
20saying, "12THIS IS THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANTWHICHGODCOMMANDED YOU."
And in the sameway he 13sprinkledboth the ftabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry with the blood.
And according to the gLaw, one may 14almost say, allthings are cleansed with blood, and 15withoutshedding of blood there is noforgiveness.
23Therefore it was necessary for the 16copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but 17the heavenlythingsthemselves with bettersacrificesthanthese.
For Christ18did not enter a holyplacemade with hands, a mere copy of 19the trueone, but into 20heavenitself, now21to appear in the presence of God for us;
25nor was it that He would offerHimselfoften, as 22the highpriestenters23the holyplace24year by year with blood that is not his own.
