Hebrews 8:1 Of the thinges which we haue spoken, this is the pyth: We haue soch an hye prest, that is set on ye righte hande of the seate of maiestie in heaue: Hebrews 8:2 and is a mynister of holy thinges, and of the true Tabernacle, which God pitched, & not man. Hebrews 8:3 For euery hye prest is ordened to offre giftes and sacrifices: Wherfore it is of necessite, yt this man haue somwhat also to offer. Hebrews 8:4 For he were not a prest, yf he were vpon earth, where are prestes yt acordynge to the lawe Hebrews 8:5 offer giftes (which prestes serue vnto the ensample and shadowe of heauely thinges, euen as the answere of God was geuen vnto Moses, whan he was aboute to fynish the Tabernacle: Take hede (sayde he) that thou make all thinges acordinge to the patrone shewed the in the mount.)

Hebrews 8:13 In that he sayeth: A new, he weereth out ye olde. Now yt which is worne out and waxed olde, is ready to vanish awaye.
