Wherefore be mindful, that you Gentiles at first were carnal, and were called the Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision, and is the work of the hands in the flesh;
and were at that time without the Meshiha, and were aliens from the polity of Israel, and strangers to the covenant of the promise, and, without hope, were without Aloha in the world.
But now, by Jeshu the Meshiha, you who before were far off, are brought nigh by the blood of the Meshiha.
16 For where a covenant is, there is indicated the DEATH of that which made it.
17 For upon death only is it confirmed; because while he who made it lived there is no value in it.
18 Wherefore neither the first without blood was confirmed.
19 For when every precept had been enjoined by Musha to the whole people according to the law, Musha took the blood of the heifer, and water, with the scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled upon the books and upon all the people,
20 and said to them, This is the blood of that covenant which is commanded by Aloha.
17 Whoever therefore is in the Meshiha is a new creature; the old things have passed, and every thing hath become new
18 from Aloha, who hath reconciled us to himself in the Meshiha, and given to us the ministry of reconciliation.
19 For Aloha is in the Meshiha, who hath reconciled the world with his greatness; and he hath not reckoned unto them their sins, and hath put in us the word of reconciliation.
20 WE are ambassadors then for the Meshiha, and as if Aloha himself besought you by us: instead of the Meshiha, therefore, we beseech, Be you reconciled unto Aloha.
21 For Him who knew not sin, on our account hath he made sin, that we might be in him the righteousness of Aloha.
BUT such confidence we have through the Meshiha toward Aloha.
For we are not sufficient to think any thing as of ourselves; but our power is from Aloha,
who hath made us fit to be ministers of the new covenant, not in the writing, but in the spirit. For the writing killeth, but the Spirit maketh alive.
how much more then shall the blood of the Meshiha, who, by the Eternal Spirit, himself hath offered without spot unto Aloha, purify our conscience from dead works, to serve the Aloha the Living?
For this was he made the Mediator of the new covenant, that by his death he might become the ransom for those who had transgressed against the first covenant, (and) that they might receive the promise, they, who are called unto the inheritance which is eternal.
1 For there was in the law the shadow of good things to come, not the subsistence of the very things, therefore (though) every year the same sacrifices were offered they could never perfect those who offered them.
2 For if they had perfected, they would have ceased afterward from the presentation of them; because the conscience of those who had been once purified by them would not henceforth have been troubled by (such) sins.
3 But in those sacrifices their sins are brought to remembrance every year.
4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and of goats to purify (from) sins.
In this is love: it was not that we had loved Aloha, but that Aloha himself loved us, and sent his Son a propitiation for our sins.
And he took the cup, and offered thanks, and gave to them, and said, Take, drink of this all of you:
this (is) my blood of the new covenant, which for multitudes is shed for the remission of sins.
In that he said, THE NEW, he hath made the former old: and that which is antiquated, and hath grown old, is nigh unto decay.
In all this more excellent is the covenant of (which) Jeshu is the sponsor .
And thus also respecting the cup, when, after they had supped, he said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which for you is shed.
But now a ministry which is better than that hath Jeshu Meshiha received, by so much as that covenant of which he is made the Mediator is better, and was given with better promises, than that.
For if the first covenant had been faultless, no place had there been for this second.
