Hebrews 9

9:1 Then verily the first [covenant] had also ordinances of
 divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.
9:2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, in which [was]
 the candlestick, and the table, and the show-bread; which is
 called the sanctuary.
9:3 And after the second vail, the tabernacle which is called
 the Holiest of all;
9:4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant
 overlaid around with gold, in which [was] the golden pot that
 had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the
9:5 And over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy-seat;
 of which we cannot now speak particularly.
9:6 Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went
 always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service [of
9:7 But into the second [went] the high priest alone once every
 year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and
 [for] the errors of the people:
9:8 The Holy Spirit this signifying, that the way into the
 holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while the first
 tabernacle was yet standing:
9:9 Which [was] a figure for the time then present, in which
 were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him
 that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
9:10 [Which stood] only in meats and drinks, and divers
 washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed [on them] until the
 time of reformation.
9:11 But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come,
 by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands,
 that is to say, not of this building;
9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own
 blood; he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained
 eternal redemption [for us].
9:13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a
 heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctify to the purifying of the
9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the
 eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, cleanse
 your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament,
 that by means of death, for the redemption of the
 transgressions [that were] under the first testament, they who
 are called may receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
9:16 For where a testament [is], there must also of necessity be
 the death of the testator.
9:17 For a testament [is] of force after men are dead: otherwise
 it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
9:18 Hence even the first [testament] was not dedicated without
9:19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people
 according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats,
 with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both
 the book and all the people,
9:20 Saying, This [is] the blood of the testament which God hath
 enjoined to you.
9:21 Moreover, he sprinkled likewise with blood both the
 tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
9:22 And almost all things are by the law cleansed with blood;
 and without shedding of blood is no remission.
9:23 [It was] therefore necessary that the patterns of things in
 the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly
 things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
9:24 For Christ hath not entered into the holy places made with
 hands, [which are] the figures of the true; but into heaven
 itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
9:25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high
 priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of
9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation
 of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he
 appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
9:27 And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this
 the judgment:
9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to
 them that look for him he will appear the second time without
 sin to salvation.
