Hebrews Chapter 9

Heb. 9:1 Therefore indeed, the first even had ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.

Heb. 9:2 For there was a tabernacle built; the first, in which was the candlestick, and the table, and the setting forth of the bread; which is called holy place.

Heb. 9:3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of Holies;

Heb. 9:4 which had the golden censer, and the Ark of the Covenant covered around every place with gold, in which was the golden container that had manna, and Aaron’s rod that blossomed, and the tablets of the covenant;

Heb. 9:5 and over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now speak in detail.

Heb. 9:6 Now when these were built in this way, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.

Heb. 9:7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the ignorances of the people:

Heb. 9:8 the Holy Spirit is signifying this, that the way into the Holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while the first tabernacle has its existence:

Heb. 9:9 which is a parable for the present time, according to which both gifts and sacrifices being offered and are not able to complete in respect to conscience the one serving;

Heb. 9:10 consisting only in foods and drinks, and different washings, and fleshly ordinances, imposed on them until the time of the amendment.

Heb. 9:11 But Christ having come a high priest of good things about to come, by a greater and more complete tabernacle, not made with hands, that is not of this creation;

Heb. 9:12 neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood, He entered in once for all into the Holy of Holies, having obtained perpetual redemption for us!

Heb. 9:13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh:

Heb. 9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the Infinite Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Heb. 9:15 So for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first covenant, those who are called might take the promise of a perpetual inheritance.

Heb. 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the will-maker.

Heb. 9:17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise, it is of no value at all while the will-maker lives.

Heb. 9:18 Where neither the first covenant was dedicated without blood.

Heb. 9:19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the Law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,

Heb. 9:20 saying, this is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded to you.

Heb. 9:21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry.

Heb. 9:22 And almost all things by the Law are being cleansed with blood; and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

Heb. 9:23 Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

Heb. 9:24 For Christ has not entered into the holy of holies made with hands, which are copies of the real; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

Heb. 9:25 nor yet that He should offer Himself frequently, as the high priest enters into the holy of holies every year with the blood of others;

Heb. 9:26 for then He certainly would be suffering frequently from the downfall of the world: but now once at the completion of the Old Covenant Age He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

Heb. 9:27 And as it is reserved for men to die once, but after this judgment:

Heb. 9:28 so Christ also, being offered once to bear the sins of many; and to those who are looking for Him, He will be seen out from the second time, apart from sin for deliverance.
