Hebrews 8:1 Of the thynges which we haue spoken, thys is the pyth: that we haue soch an hye preste as sytteth on the ryght hande of the seate of maiestye in heauen, Hebrews 8:2 and is a minyster of holy thynges, and of the true tabernacle, whych God pyght, and not man. Hebrews 8:3 For euery hye prest is ordeyned to offer gyftes and sacrifices: wherfore it is of necessite, that this man haue some what also to offer. Hebrews 8:4 For he were not a prest, yf he were on the erth where are prestes, that accordynge to the lawe Hebrews 8:5 offer gyftes whych serue vnto the ensample, and shadowe of heauenly thynges: euen as the answere of God was geuen vnto Moses, when he was about to fynyssh the tabernacle. Take hede (sayde he) that thou make all thinges accordinge to the patrone which is shewed to the in the mount.

For they contynued not in my testament, and I regarded them not sayth the Lord. Hebrews 8:10 For this is the testament, that I wyll make wt the house of Israel: After those dayes (sayth þe Lord) I wyll put my lawes in their myndes, and in their hertes I will write them, and I wylbe their God, and they shalbe my people. Hebrews 8:11 And they shall not teach euery man hys neyghboure, and euery man hys brother, saying: knowe the Lord: for they shall knowe me, from the least to the moste of them: Hebrews 8:12 For I wilbe mercyfull ouer their vnrightewesnes, and their synnes & their iniquities will I thinke vpon nomore. Hebrews 8:13 In that he sayth a new testament, he hath worne out the olde, For that which is worne out & wexed olde, is redy to vanyshe awaye.
