Hebrews 9:15-25 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
15 For this reason 1He is the 2mediator of a 3new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been 4called may 5receive the promise of 6the eternal inheritance. 16 For where a acovenant is, there must of necessity bbe the death of the one who made it. 17 For a ccovenant is valid only when dmen are dead, efor it is never in force while the one who made it lives. 18 Therefore even the first covenant was not inaugurated without blood. 19 For when every commandment had been 7spoken by Moses to all the people according to the Law, 8he took the 9blood of the calves and the goats, with 10water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both 11the book itself and all the people, 20 saying, "12THIS IS THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT WHICH GOD COMMANDED YOU." 21 And in the same way he 13sprinkled both the ftabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry with the blood. 22 And according to the gLaw, one may 14almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and 15without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. 23 Therefore it was necessary for the 16copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but 17the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ 18did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of 19the true one, but into 20heaven itself, now 21to appear in the presence of God for us; 25 nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as 22the high priest enters 23the holy place 24year by year with blood that is not his own.
