By the eternal priesthood of Christ the Levitical priesthood of Aaron is abolished.
Hebrews 8:1 But of the thinges whiche we haue spoken, [this is] ye summe: We haue such an hye priest that sitteth on ye ryght hand of ye throne of the maiestie in the heaues, Hebrews 8:2 A minister of holy thynges, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pight, and not man. Hebrews 8:3 For euery hye priest is ordeyned to offer gyftes and sacrifices: Wherefore it is of necessitie, that this man haue somewhat also to offer. Hebrews 8:4 For he were not a priest, yf he were on the earth, seyng there are priestes that accordyng to the lawe offer gyftes, Hebrews 8:5 Who serue vnto the example and shadowe of heauenly thinges, as Moyses was admonished of God, when he was about to finishe the tabernacle: For see, saith he, that thou make all thynges accordyng to the patterne shewed to thee in the mount. Hebrews 8:6 But nowe hath he obteyned a more excellent office, by howe much also he is the mediatour of a better couenaunt, whiche was confirmed in better promises.
And the temporal Covenant with the fathers, by the eternal Covenant of the Gospel.
Hebrews 8:7 For yf that first [couenaunt] had ben founde fautlesse, then shoulde no place haue ben sought for the seconde. Hebrews 8:8 For in rebukyng them, he saith: Beholde the dayes come, saith the Lord, and I wyll finishe vppon the house of Israel and vppon the house of Iuda a newe couenaunt: Hebrews 8:9 Not lyke that that I made with their fathers, in the day when I toke them by the hande, to leade them out of the lande of Egypt: because they continued not in my couenaunt, and I regarded them not, saith the Lorde. Hebrews 8:10 For this is the couenaunt that I wyll make with the house of Israel after those dayes, saith the Lord, geuyng my lawes into their mynde, and in their heart I wyl write them, and I wyll be to them a God, and they shalbe to me a people. Hebrews 8:11 And they shall not teach euery man his neyghbour, and euery man his brother, saying, knowe the Lorde: for all shall knowe me, from the litle of them to the great of them. Hebrews 8:12 For I wyll be mercyfull to their vnrighteousnes, and their sinnes and their iniquities wyll I thynke vpon no more. Hebrews 8:13 In that he sayth a newe [couenaunt] he hath worne out the first: For that which is worne out and waxed olde, is redie to vanishe away.
