The description of the rites and bloody sacrifices of the Law,
Hebrews 9:1 The olde testament then had verely ordynaunces, and seruinges of God, and wordly holynes. Hebrews 9:2 For there was a fore tabernacle made, wherin was the lyght, and the table, and the shewe breed, whych hys called holy. Hebrews 9:3 But within the seconde vayle was there a tabernacle, whych is called holyest of all, Hebrews 9:4 whych had the golden senser, and the arcke of the testament ouerlayde round about with golde, wherin was the golden pot with Manna, and Aarons rodde, that spronge and the tables of the testament. Hebrews 9:5 Ouer the arcke were the Cherubins of glory, shadowyng þe seate of grace. Of which thynges we cannot now speake particularly. Hebrews 9:6 When these thinges were thus ordeyned, the prestes went allwayes into the fyrst tabernacle, whych executed þe seruice of þe holy thinges. Hebrews 9:7 But into the seconde, went the hye prest alone once euery yeare: not wyth out bloud which he offered for him selfe, and for the ignoraunces of the people. Hebrews 9:8 Wherwith þe holy goost thys signifyed, that the waye of holy thynges was not yet opened, whyll as yet þe fyrst tabernacle was standyng. Hebrews 9:9 Which was a symilitude for the tyme then present, in which were offered gyftes and sacrifices, that coulde not make the minister parfecte, as pertayning to the conscyence, Hebrews 9:10 wyth onely meates & drinckes, & diuers wasshinges and iustifyinges of the fleshe, whych were ordeyned vntyll the tyme of reformacyon.
far inferior to the dignity and perfection of the blood and sacrifice of Christ.
Hebrews 9:11 But Christ beynge and hye Prest of good thynges to come, came by a greater & a more perfecte tabernacle, not made wyth handes: that is to saye, not of thys buylding, Hebrews 9:12 nether by the bloude of goates & calues: but by hys awne bloude he entred in once into the holy place, and founde eternall redempcyon. Hebrews 9:13 For yf the bloud of oxen and of gotes & þe asshes of a yong kow, when it was sprinckcled, purifieth the vnclene, as touchyng the purifyinge of the flesshe: Hebrews 9:14 how moch moare shall the bloud of Christ (which thorow the eternall sprete, offered him self without spot to God) pourge youre conscience from deed workes, for to serue the lyuinge God? Hebrews 9:15 And for this cause is he the mediator of the new testament, that thorow deeth which chaunsed, for the redempcion of those transgressions that were vnder the fyrst testament they whych are called, myght receaue þe promes of eternall inheritaunce. Hebrews 9:16 For where as is a testament, ther must also (of necessite) be þe deeth of hym that maketh the testament. Hebrews 9:17 For the testament taketh auctoritie when men are deed: for it is yet of no value, as longe as he þt maketh þe testament is alyue, Hebrews 9:18 for which cause also nether þe first testament was ordeyned without bloude. Hebrews 9:19 For when Moses had declared all the commaundement to all the people according to the lawe, he toke the bloud of calues and of goates, with water & purple wolle, and ysope, and sprinckled both the boke, & all the people, Hebrews 9:20 saying: this is þe bloud of the testament, whych God hath appoynted vnto you. Hebrews 9:21 Moreouer, he sprinckled the tabernacle wyth bloud also, and all the ministringe vessels. Hebrews 9:22 And almost all thinges are by the lawe purged with bloud, & without sheadinge of bloud is no remissyon. Hebrews 9:23 It is nede then, that the similitudes of heauenly thynges be purifyed wyth soch thynges: but that the heauenly thynges them selues be purifyed wt better sacrifyces then are those. Hebrews 9:24 For Christ is not entred into þe holy places that are made wyth handes (whych are symilitudes of true thynges) but is entred into very heauen, for to appeare now in the syght of God for vs: Hebrews 9:25 not to offer hym selfe often as the hye prest entreth into þe holy place euery yeare with straunge bloud, Hebrews 9:26 for then must he haue often offered sence þe worlde began. But now in the ende of the worlde, hath he appeared once, to put sinne to flight by the offerynge vp of him selfe. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is apoynted vnto all men tkat they shall once dye, and then commeth the iudgement Hebrews 9:28 euen so Christ was once offered, to take awaye þe sinnes of many, & vnto them that loke for hym shall he appeare agayne without synne vnto saluacyon.
