The description of the rites and bloody sacrifices of the Law,
Hebrews 9:1 That fyrste tabernacle verelye had ordinaunces, and seruinges of God, and worldly holynes. Hebrews 9:2 For there was a fore tabernacle made, wherein was the candelstycke and the table, & the shewe bread which is called holye. Hebrews 9:3 But wythin the second vayle was there a tabernacle, whiche is called holyeste of all Hebrews 9:4 whiche had the golden senser, and the arcke of the testament ouerlayde roundabout wyth gold, wherein was the golden pot with manna, and Aarons rodde that sprong, and the tables of the testament. Hebrews 9:5 Ouer the arcke were the cherubes of glorye shadowynge the seate of grace. Of whiche thynges we wyll not nowe speake perticularlye. Hebrews 9:6 When these thynges were thus ordeyned the priestes wente alwayes into the tabernacle and executed the seruyce of God. Hebrews 9:7 But into the seconde wente the hye priest alone, once euerye yeare, and not wythout bloude, whiche he offered for hym selfe, and for the ignoraunce of the people. Hebrews 9:8 Wherewith the holy ghost this signifyinge, that the waye of holy thynges, was not yet oppened, whyle as yet the fyrst tabernacle was standynge. Hebrews 9:9 Whyche was a simylytude for the tyme then present, and in whyche were offered gyftes and sacrifices þt coulde not make the mynyster perfecte, as pertaynynge to the conscience, Hebrews 9:10 wyth onelye meates and drynkes and dyuers washynges and iustifiynges of the fleshe, whyche 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 Christe beynge an hye prieste of good thynges to come, came by a greater & a more perfecte tabernacle, not made wyth handes: that is to saye, not of thys maner buyldynge, Hebrews 9:12 neyther by the bloude of gotes and calues, but by hys owne bloude he entred once for al into the holye place, and founde eternal redempcyon. Hebrews 9:13 For yf the bloude of oxen and of gotes and the ashes of an heyfer, when it was sprinkled, puryfyed the vncleane, as touchyng the puryfiynge of the fleshe: Hebrews 9:14 Howe muche more shall the bloude of Christe (which thorow the eternall spyryte offred hym selfe without spot to God) pourge youre conscyences from dead workes, for to serue the lyuyng God? Hebrews 9:15 And for thys cause is: he the medyatour of the new testament, that thorowe death whiche chaunsed for the redempcyon of those transgressyons that were in the fyrst testament, they whiche were called myght receyue the promes of eternall inherytaunce. Hebrews 9:16 For wheresoeuer is a testamente, there muste also be the death of hym that maketh þe testament. Hebrews 9:17 For the testament taketh authoritie when men are dead. For it is of no value as longe as he that made it, is alyue. Hebrews 9:18 For whiche cause also, neyther that fyrst testament was ordeyned without bloude. Hebrews 9:19 For when al the commaundementes were reade of Moyses to all the people, he toke the bloude of calues and of gotes, whiche water and purple woul and ysope, and sprynkled both the boke and all the people Hebrews 9:20 saiynge: thys is the bloud of the Testamente, with GOD hath appoynted vnto you. Hebrews 9:21 More ouer he sprinkled the tabernacle wyth bloude also, and all the mynystrynge vessels. Hebrews 9:22 And also all moost all thynges, are by the lawe pourged wyth bloude, and wythout sheddynge of bloude is no remyssyon. Hebrews 9:23 It is then nede that the simylytudes of heauenly thinges be puryfyed wyth such thinges but the heauenly thynges them selues are puryfyed with better sacryfyces then are those. Hebrews 9:24 For Christe is not entred into the holye places that are made wyth handes, whiche are but simylytudes of true thynges: but is entred into verye heauen, for to appere nowe in the syghte of God for vs: Hebrews 9:25 not to offer hym selfe, often as the hye prieste entreth into the holye place euerye yeare wt straunge bloude Hebrews 9:26 for then must he haue often suffered sence the worlde beganne. But nowe in the ende of the worlde hath he appered ones to put synne to flyghte by the offerynge vp of hym self. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appoynted vnto men that they shall ones dye, and then commeth the iudgemente, Hebrews 9:28 euen so Christ was ones offered to take away the synnes of many, and vnto them that loke for hym, shall he appere agayne wythoute synne vnto saluacyon.
