Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 It had, indeed, then (even the first tabernacle) ordinances of service, also a worldly sanctuary, 1 Now the first covenant had regulations for worship and also an earthly sanctuary.
2 for a tabernacle was prepared, the first, in which was both the lamp-stand, and the table, and the bread of the presence -- which is called `Holy;' 2 A tabernacle was set up. In its first room were the lampstand, the table and the consecrated bread; this was called the Holy Place.
3 and after the second vail a tabernacle that is called `Holy of holies,' 3 Behind the second curtain was a room called the Most Holy Place,
4 having a golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid all round about with gold, in which [is] the golden pot having the manna, and the rod of Aaron that budded, and the tables of the covenant, 4 which had the golden altar of incense and the gold-covered ark of the covenant. This ark contained the gold jar of manna, Aaron's staff that had budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant.
5 and over it cherubim of the glory, overshadowing the mercy-seat, concerning which we are not now to speak particularly. 5 Above the ark were the cherubim of the Glory, overshadowing the atonement cover. But we cannot discuss these things in detail now.
6 And these things having been thus prepared, into the first tabernacle, indeed, at all times the priests do go in, performing the services, 6 When everything had been arranged like this, the priests entered regularly into the outer room to carry on their ministry.
7 and into the second, once in the year, only the chief priest, not apart from blood, which he doth offer for himself and the errors of the people, 7 But only the high priest entered the inner room, and that only once a year, and never without blood, which he offered for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.
8 the Holy Spirit this evidencing that not yet hath been manifested the way of the holy [places], the first tabernacle having yet a standing; 8 The Holy Spirit was showing by this that the way into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still standing.
9 which [is] a simile in regard to the present time, in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered, which are not able, in regard to conscience, to make perfect him who is serving, 9 This is an illustration for the present time, indicating that the gifts and sacrifices being offered were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper.
10 only in victuals, and drinks, and different baptisms, and fleshly ordinances -- till the time of reformation imposed upon [them]. 10 They are only a matter of food and drink and various ceremonial washings--external regulations applying until the time of the new order.
11 And Christ being come, chief priest of the coming good things, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands -- that is, not of this creation -- 11 When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation.
12 neither through blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, did enter in once into the holy places, age-during redemption having obtained; 12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.
13 for if the blood of bulls, and goats, and ashes of an heifer, sprinkling those defiled, doth sanctify to the purifying of the flesh, 13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean.
14 how much more shall the blood of the Christ (who through the age-during Spirit did offer himself unblemished to God) purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
15 And because of this, of a new covenant he is mediator, that, death having come, for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, those called may receive the promise of the age-during inheritance, 15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance--now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
16 for where a covenant [is], the death of the covenant-victim to come in is necessary, 16 In the case of a will, it is necessary to prove the death of the one who made it,
17 for a covenant over dead victims [is] stedfast, since it is no force at all when the covenant-victim liveth, 17 because a will is in force only when somebody has died; it never takes effect while the one who made it is living.
18 whence not even the first apart from blood hath been initiated, 18 This is why even the first covenant was not put into effect without blood.
19 for every command having been spoken, according to law, by Moses, to all the people, having taken the blood of the calves and goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, he both the book itself and all the people did sprinkle, 19 When Moses had proclaimed every commandment of the law to all the people, he took the blood of calves, together with water, scarlet wool and branches of hyssop, and sprinkled the scroll and all the people.
20 saying, `This [is] the blood of the covenant that God enjoined unto you,' 20 He said, "This is the blood of the covenant, which God has commanded you to keep."
21 and both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the service with blood in like manner he did sprinkle, 21 In the same way, he sprinkled with the blood both the tabernacle and everything used in its ceremonies.
22 and with blood almost all things are purified according to the law, and apart from blood-shedding forgiveness doth not come. 22 In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
23 [It is] necessary, therefore, the pattern indeed of the things in the heavens to be purified with these, and the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these; 23 It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
24 for not into holy places made with hands did the Christ enter -- figures of the true -- but into the heaven itself, now to be manifested in the presence of God for us; 24 For Christ did not enter a man-made sanctuary that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God's presence.
25 nor that he may many times offer himself, even as the chief priest doth enter into the holy places every year with blood of others; 25 Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own.
26 since it had behoved him many times to suffer from the foundation of the world, but now once, at the full end of the ages, for putting away of sin through his sacrifice, he hath been manifested; 26 Then Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But now he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.
27 and as it is laid up to men once to die, and after this -- judgment, 27 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,
28 so also the Christ, once having been offered to bear the sins of many, a second time, apart from a sin-offering, shall appear, to those waiting for him -- to salvation! 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
