The Old and the New

(cf. Exo 25:10–40 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:1 - The first therefore also indeed had ordinances of service, and the sanctuary, a worldly one.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:2 - For a tabernacle was set up; the first, in which were both the candlestick and the table and the exposition of the loaves, which is called Holy;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:3 - but after the second veil a tabernacle which is called Holy of holies,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:4 - having a golden censer, and the ark of the covenant, covered round in every part with gold, in which were the golden pot that had the manna, and the rod of Aaron that had sprouted, and the tables of the covenant;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:5 - and above over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy-seat; concerning which it is not now the time to speak in detail.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:6 - Now these things being thus ordered, into the first tabernacle the priests enter at all times, accomplishing the services;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:7 - but into the second, the high priest only, once a year, not without blood, which he offers for himself and for the errors of the people:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:8 - the Holy Spirit shewing this, that the way of the holy of holies has not yet been made manifest while as yet the first tabernacle has its standing;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:9 - the which is an image for the present time, according to which both gifts and sacrifices, unable to perfect as to conscience him that worshipped, are offered,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:10 - consisting only of meats and drinks and divers washings, ordinances of flesh, imposed until the time of setting things right.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:11 - But Christ being come high priest of the good things to come, by the better and more perfect tabernacle not made with hand, (that is, not of this creation,)
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:12 - nor by blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood, has entered in once for all into the holy of holies, having found an eternal redemption.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:13 - For if the blood of goats and bulls, and a heifer's ashes sprinkling the defiled, sanctifies for the purity of the flesh,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:14 - how much rather shall the blood of the Christ, who by the eternal Spirit offered himself spotless to God, purify your conscience from dead works to worship the living God?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:15 - And for this reason he is mediator of a new covenant, so that, death having taken place for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, the called might receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:16 - (For where there is a testament, the death of the testator must needs come in.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:17 - For a testament is of force when men are dead, since it is in no way of force while the testator is alive.)
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:18 - Whence neither the first was inaugurated without blood.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:19 - For every commandment having been spoken according to the law by Moses to all the people; having taken the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, he sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:20 - saying, This is the blood of the covenant which God has enjoined to you.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:21 - And the tabernacle too and all the vessels of service he sprinkled in like manner with blood;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:22 - and almost all things are purified with blood according to the law, and without blood-shedding there is no remission.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:23 - It was necessary then that the figurative representations of the things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with sacrifices better than these.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:24 - For the Christ is not entered into holy places made with hand, figures of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear before the face of God for us:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:25 - nor in order that he should offer himself often, as the high priest enters into the holy places every year with blood not his own;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:26 - since he had then been obliged often to suffer from the foundation of the world. But now once in the consummation of the ages he has been manifested for the putting away of sin by his sacrifice.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:27 - And forasmuch as it is the portion of men once to die, and after this judgment;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 9:28 - thus the Christ also, having been once offered to bear the sins of many, shall appear to those that look for him the second time without sin for salvation.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
