1 A crowning point on the things being spoken: - such a one as this, have we, as high-priest, who hath sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, - 2 Of the Holy place, a public minister, and of the Real Tent, which, the Lord, pitched and not man. 3 For, every high-priest, for the offering of both gifts and sacrifices, is constituted; whence it was necessary for, this one also, to have something which he might offer. 4 If, indeed, therefore, he had been on earth, he had not, in that case, even been a priest, since there are those who are offering the gifts, according to the law: - 5 Who, indeed, are rendering divine service, with a glimpse and shadow, of the heavenly things; even as Moses hath received intimation, when about to complete the tent, - For see! saith he - Thou shalt make all things according to the model which hath been pointed out to thee in the mount. 6 But, now, hath he attained unto, a more distinguished public ministry, - by as much as of a better covenant also he is, mediator, which indeed, upon better promises, hath been legislated.
7 For, if, that first, had been, faultless, not, in that case, for a second, had there been sought, a place. 8 For, finding fault with them, he saith - Lo! days are coming, saith the Lord, when I will conclude, for the house of Israel and the house of Judah, a covenant of a new sort: 9 Not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers, in the day when I took them by their hand, to lead them forth out of the land of Egypt, - because, they, abode not in my covenant, and, I, disregarded them, saith the Lord. 10 Because, this, is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, saith the Lord: - giving my laws into their understanding, upon their hearts also, will I inscribe them: and I will become their God, and, they, shall become my people; 11 And in nowise shall they teach - every one his fellow-citizen, and every one his brother, saying, - Get to know the Lord! Because, all, shall know me, from the least unto the greatest of them; 12 Because, propitious, will I be as to their unrighteousnesses, and, of their sins, in nowise will I be mindful, any more.
