Hebrews 9:20  (King James Version)
Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.

13:20 Zechariah 9:11 ; Matthew 26:28

Rather, covenant.
Ver. 16, 17, may be better rendered, "For where a covenant is, there must necessarily be the death of that by which it is confirmed; for a covenant is confirmed over dead victims, and does not avail while that by which it is confirmed liveth."
Deuteronomy 29:12 ; Joshua 9:6
