Murdock(i) 1 Now the sum of the whole is this, we have a High Priest, who is seated on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven: 2 And he is the minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which God hath pitched, and not man. 3 For every high priest is established, to offer oblations and sacrifices; and therefore, it was proper that this one should also have something to offer. 4 And if he were on earth, he would not be a priest; because there are priests there, who offer oblations agreeably to the law: 5 namely they, who minister in the emblem and shadow of the things in heaven: as it was said to Moses, when he was about to build the tabernacle, See, and make every thing according to the pattern which was showed thee in the mount. 6 But now, Jesus the Messiah hath received a ministry which is better than that: as also the covenant, of which he is made the Mediator, is better, and is given with better promises than the former. 7 For, if the first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no place for this second one. 8 For he chideth them and saith: Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will complete with the family of the house of Israel, and with the family of the house of Judah, a new covenant; 9 not like the covenant which I gave to their fathers, in the day when I took them by the hand, and brought them out of the land of Egypt; and because they continued not in my covenant, I also rejected them, saith the Lord. 10 But this is the covenant which I will give to the family of the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord: I will put my law in their minds, and inscribe it on their hearts; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people. 11 And one shall not teach his fellow-citizen, nor his brother, nor say: Know thou the Lord: because they shall all know me, from the youngest of them to the oldest. 12 And I will forgive them their iniquity; and their sins will I remember no more. 13 In that he said a New Covenant, he made the first old; and that which is old and decaying, is near to dissolution.
