Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now of the things of which we have spoken, this is the sum: We have such a High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, 1 The point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven,
2 a minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched and not man. 2 and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by man.
3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices; therefore it is of necessity that this Man have something also to offer. 3 Every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices, and so it was necessary for this one also to have something to offer.
4 For if He were on earth, He should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests who offer gifts according to the law, 4 If he were on earth, he would not be a priest, for there are already men who offer the gifts prescribed by the law.
5 and who serve unto the copy and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished by God when he was about to make the tabernacle. For,"See," saith He, "that thou make all things according to the pattern shown to thee on the mount." 5 They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: "See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain."
6 But now hath He obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also He is the Mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. 6 But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises.
7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 7 For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another.
8 For finding fault with them, He saith, "Behold, the days come," saith the Lord, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah-- 8 But God found fault with the people and said: "The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
9 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, because they continued not in My covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 9 It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not remain faithful to my covenant, and I turned away from them, declares the Lord.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord: I will put My laws into their minds and write them in their hearts, and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to Me a people. 10 This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbor and every man his brother, saying, `Know the Lord,' for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest. 11 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more." 12 For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."
13 In that He saith "a new covenant," He hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. 13 By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.
