For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
Who serve the pattern and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was given an intimation of the divine will, being about to complete the tent: for, See, says he, thou make all things according to the type shewed thee in the mount.
Which a parable for the time placed in, according to which both gifts and sacrifices are brought near, not being able for consciousness to perfect him serving;
Which are a shadow of things about to be; and the body of Christ.
But in these, a reminding of sins yearly.
For there is truly an annulling of the command going before by its weakness and unprofitableness.
This the Holy Spirit designating, the way of the holies had not yet been made manifest, the first tent yet having a standing:
For by one offering has he perfected forever the consecrated.
