Hebrews 8
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And the sum concerning the things spoken of [is]: we have such a Chief Priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Greatness in the heavens, 2a servant of the holy places, and of the true dwelling place, which the LORD set up, and not man, 3for every chief priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices, from where [it is] necessary for this One to also have something that He may offer; 4for if, indeed, He were on earth, He would not be a priest (there being the priests who are offering the gifts according to the Law, 5who to an example and shadow serve of the heavenly things, as Moses has been divinely warned, being about to construct the Dwelling Place, for, “See,” He says, “[that] you will make all things according to the pattern that was shown to you on the mountain”), 6but now He has obtained a more excellent service, how much He is also mediator of a better covenant, which has been sanctioned on better promises,

7for if that first were faultless, a place would not have been sought for a second.

8For finding fault, He says to them, “Behold, days come, says the LORD, and I will complete with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah, a new covenant,

9not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers, in the day of My taking [them] by their hand, to bring them out of the land of Egypt—because they did not remain in My covenant, and I did not regard them, says the LORD—

10because this [is] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, says the LORD, giving My laws into their mind, and I will write them on their hearts, and I will be to them for a God, and they will be to Me for a people;

11and they will not each teach his neighbor, and each his brother, saying, Know the LORD, because they will all know Me—from the small one of them to the great one of them,

12because I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and I will remember their sins and their lawlessnesses no more.”

13In the saying “new,” He has made the first obsolete, and what is becoming obsolete and growing old [is] near disappearing.
