in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.
"YOU HAVE LOVED RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HATED LAWLESSNESS; THEREFORE GOD, YOUR GOD, HAS ANOINTED YOU WITH THE OIL OF GLADNESS ABOVE YOUR COMPANIONS."
For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.
"THEREFORE I WAS ANGRY WITH THIS GENERATION, AND SAID, 'THEY ALWAYS GO ASTRAY IN THEIR HEART, AND THEY DID NOT KNOW MY WAYS ';
and again in this passage, "THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST."
And this we will do, if God permits.
For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham as he was returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,
Now observe how great this man was to whom Abraham, the patriarch, gave a tenth of the choicest spoils.
For the one concerning whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no one has officiated at the altar.
who does not need daily , like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices; so it is necessary that this high priest also have something to offer.
"FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD : I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS, AND I WILL WRITE THEM ON THEIR HEARTS. AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.
Now when these things have been so prepared, the priests are continually entering the outer tabernacle performing the divine worship,
The Holy Spirit is signifying this, that the way into the holy place has not yet been disclosed while the outer tabernacle is still standing,
But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation;
For this reason He is the mediator of a new 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 called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
saying, "THIS IS THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT WHICH GOD COMMANDED YOU."
Therefore it was necessary for the copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,
"THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD : I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM," He then says,
Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin.
All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.
And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised,
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.
For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest as an offering for sin, are burned outside the camp.
Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.
And I urge you all the more to do this, so that I may be restored to you the sooner.
