1Now, above all, we have a Kohen Gadol who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven; 2and He has become the minister of the Beit HaKodesh and of the true Mishkan which Elohim pitched, and not man. 3For every Kohen Gadol is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices, therefore it is necessary that this man have something to offer also. 4For if He were on earth, He would not be a kohen, because there are Kohanim who offer gifts according to the Torah, 5who minister as the semblance and shadow of heavenly things, just as it was commanded to Moshe when he was about to make the Mishkan, “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you in the mount.”
6But now Yeshua HaMashi’akh has received a ministry which is higher than that; just as the covenant in which He was made a mediator is lifted up, so are the promises better than those given in it. 7For if the first [ministry] had been faultless, then there would have been no need for the second. 8For He found fault with them and said, “‘Behold, the day is coming’, says יהוה , ‘when I will cut a renewed covenant with Beit Yisra’el and with Beit Yehudah; 9not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand and led them out of the land of Mitzrayim; and because they abode not in my covenant, I rejected them’, says יהוה . ‘For10 this shall be the covenant that I will make with Beit Yisra’el after those days’, says יהוה : ‘I will put my Torah into their minds, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their Elohim and they shall be my people. 11And no man shall teach his neighbor, neither his brother, saying, ‘Know יהוה ‘, for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. 12And I will forgive their wickedness and I will no longer remember their sins’.” 13For He has spoken of a renewal [of ministry]; the first has become old, and that which is old and obsolete is near passing away.
