Hebrews 9

CEB 1 So then the first covenant had regulations for the priests' service and the holy place on earth. NRS 1 Now even the first covenant had regulations for worship and an earthly sanctuary. CEB 2 They pitched the first tent called the holy place. It contained the lampstand, the table, and the loaves of bread presented to God. NRS 2 For a tent was constructed, the first one, in which were the lampstand, the table, and the bread of the Presence; this is called the Holy Place. CEB 3 There was a tent behind the second curtain called the holy of holies. NRS 3 Behind the second curtain was a tent called the Holy of Holies. CEB 4 It had the gold altar for incense and the chest containing the covenant, which was covered with gold on all sides. In the chest there was a gold jar containing manna, Aaron's rod that budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant. NRS 4 In it stood the golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which there were a golden urn holding the manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant; CEB 5 Above the chest there were magnificent winged creatures casting their shadow over the seat of the chest, where sin is taken care of. Right now we can't talk about these things in detail. NRS 5 above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot speak now in detail. CEB 6 When these things have been prepared in this way, priests enter the first tent all the time as they perform their service. NRS 6 Such preparations having been made, the priests go continually into the first tent to carry out their ritual duties; CEB 7 But only the high priest enters the second tent once a year. He never does this without blood, which he offers for himself and for the sins the people committed in ignorance. NRS 7 but only the high priest goes into the second, and he but once a year, and not without taking the blood that he offers for himself and for the sins committed unintentionally by the people. CEB 8 With this, the Holy Spirit is showing that the way into the holy place hadn't been revealed yet while the first tent was standing. NRS 8 By this the Holy Spirit indicates that the way into the sanctuary has not yet been disclosed as long as the first tent is still standing. CEB 9 This is a symbol for the present time. It shows that the gifts and sacrifices that are being offered can't perfect the conscience of the one who is serving. NRS 9 This is a symbol of the present time, during which gifts and sacrifices are offered that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper, CEB 10 These are superficial regulations that are only about food, drink, and various ritual ways to wash with water. They are regulations that have been imposed until the time of the new order. NRS 10 but deal only with food and drink and various baptisms, regulations for the body imposed until the time comes to set things right. CEB 11 But Christ has appeared as the high priest of the good things that have happened. He passed through the greater and more perfect meeting tent, which isn't made by human hands (that is, it's not a part of this world). NRS 11 But when Christ came as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation), CEB 12 He entered the holy of holies once for all by his own blood, not by the blood of goats or calves, securing our deliverance for all time. NRS 12 he entered once for all into the Holy Place, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. CEB 13 If the blood of goats and bulls and the sprinkled ashes of cows made spiritually contaminated people holy and clean, NRS 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls, with the sprinkling of the ashes of a heifer, sanctifies those who have been defiled so that their flesh is purified, CEB 14 how much more will the blood of Jesus wash our consciences clean from dead works in order to serve the living God? He offered himself to God through the eternal Spirit as a sacrifice without any flaw. NRS 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to worship the living God! CEB 15 This is why he's the mediator of a new covenant (which is a will): so that those who are called might receive the promise of the eternal inheritance on the basis of his death. His death occurred to set them free from the offenses committed under the first covenant. NRS 15 For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, because a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant. CEB 16 When there is a will, you need to confirm the death of the one who made the will. NRS 16 Where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. CEB 17 This is because a will takes effect only after a death, since it's not in force while the one who made the will is alive. NRS 17 For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. CEB 18 So not even the first covenant was put into effect without blood. NRS 18 Hence not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. CEB 19 Moses took the blood of calves and goats, along with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the Law scroll itself and all the people after he had proclaimed every command of the Law to all the people. NRS 19 For when every commandment had been told to all the people by Moses in accordance with the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the scroll itself and all the people, CEB 20 While he did it, he said, This is the blood of the covenant that God established for you. NRS 20 saying, "This is the blood of the covenant that God has ordained for you." CEB 21 And in the same way he sprinkled the meeting tent and also all the equipment that would be used in the priests' service with blood. NRS 21 And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. CEB 22 Almost everything is cleansed by blood, according to the Law's regulations, and there is no forgiveness without blood being shed. NRS 22 Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. CEB 23 So it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be cleansed with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things had to be cleansed with better sacrifices than these. NRS 23 Thus it was necessary for the sketches of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves need better sacrifices than these. CEB 24 Christ didn't enter the holy place (which is a copy of the true holy place) made by human hands, but into heaven itself, so that he now appears in God's presence for us. NRS 24 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by human hands, a mere copy of the true one, but he entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. CEB 25 He didn't enter to offer himself over and over again, like the high priest enters the earthly holy place every year with blood that isn't his. NRS 25 Nor was it to offer himself again and again, as the high priest enters the Holy Place year after year with blood that is not his own; CEB 26 If that were so, then Jesus would have to suffer many times since the foundation of the world. Instead, he has now appeared once at the end of the ages to get rid of sin by sacrificing himself. NRS 26 for then he would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to remove sin by the sacrifice of himself. CEB 27 People are destined to die once and then face judgment. NRS 27 And just as it is appointed for mortals to die once, and after that the judgment, CEB 28 In the same way, Christ was also offered once to take on himself the sins of many people. He will appear a second time, not to take away sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. NRS 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
