11 Wherefore, keep in remembrancethat, at one time, ye, the nations in flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by the so-called Circumcision in flesh, made by hand,
12 That ye were, in that season, separate from Christ, alienated from the citizenship of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and godless in the world;
13 But, just now, in Christ Jesus, ye, who at one time were afar off, were made nigh in the blood of the Christ;
16 For, where a covenant is, it is necessary for, the death, to be brought in, of him that hath covenanted;
17 For, a covenant over dead persons, is firm,since it is not then of force when he is living that hath covenanted.
18 Whence, not even the first, apart from blood, hath been consecrated;
19 For, when every commandment according to the law had been spoken by Moses unto all the people, taking the blood of the calves and the goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, both, the scroll itself, and all the people, he sprinkled;
20 SayingThis, is the blood of the covenant which, God, hath sent in command unto you:
17 On the contrary, now, no longer, are we gaining it. So that, if any one is in Christ, there is a new creation! the old things, have passed away,Lo! they have become new!
18 The all things, moreover, are of God,who hath reconciled us unto himself, through Christ, and hath given, unto us, the reconciling ministry:
19 How that, God, was in Christ, reconciling, a world, unto himself, not reckoning, unto them, their offences,and hath put, in us, the reconciling discourse.
20 In behalf of Christ, therefore, are we ambassadors,as if God were beseeching through us: we entreat, in behalf of Christ,be reconciled unto God!
21 Him who knew not sin, in our behalf, he made to be, sin, that we might become Gods righteousness in him.
4 But, such confidence as this, have we, through the Christ, towards God.
5 Not that, of our own selves, sufficient, are we, to reckon anything as of ourselves, but, our sufficiency, is of God;
6 Who also hath made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenantnot of letter, but of spirit, for, the letter, killeth, whereas, the Spirit, maketh alive.
31 Lo! days are coming, Declareth Yahweh,When I will solemnizeWith the house of Israel and With the house of Judah, A new covenant:
32 Not like the covenant which I solemnised with their fathers, In the day when I grasped their hand, to bring them forth out of the land of Egypt,In that, they, brake my covenant Though, I, had become a husband unto them, Declareth Yahweh.
33 For, this, is the covenant which I will solemnize with the house of Israel after those days Declareth Yahweh, I will put my law within them, Yea, on their heart, will I write it,So will I become their God, And they shall become my people.
34 Then shall they no longer teach Every man his neighbour, and Every man his brother, saying, Know ye Yahweh,For, they all, shall know me, From the least of them Even unto the greatest of them, Declareth Yahweh, For I will forgive their iniquity, And their sin, will I remember, no more.
How much rather shall the blood of the Christ, who through an age-abiding spirit offered himself unspotted unto God, purify our conscience from dead works, to the rendering of divine-service, unto a Living God?
And, for this cause, of a new covenant, is he mediator,to the end that, death coming to pass for the redemption of the transgressions against the first covenant, the called might receive the promise of the age-abiding inheritance;
1 For the law, having in a shadow of the destined good things, not the very image of the things, they can never, with the same sacrifices which year by year they offer evermore, make them who approach, perfect;
2 Else would they not, in that case, have ceased being offered, by reason of those rendering the divine service having no further conscience at all of sins, being once for all purified?
3 But, in them, is a recalling to mind of sins, year by year,
4 For it is impossible for blood of bulls and goats to be taking away sins.
Herein, is love: not that, we, have loved God, but that, he, loved us, and sent forth his Son, as a propitiation concerning our sins.
And, taking a cup, and giving thanks, he gave unto them, sayingDrink of it, all of you;
For, this, is my blood of the covenant, which, for many, is to be poured out, for remission of sins.
In saying, Of a new sort, he hath made obsolete, the first; but, the thing that is becoming obsolete and aged, is near, disappearing!
By as much as this, hath, Jesus, become surety of a better covenant also.
But, now, hath he attained unto, a more distinguished public ministry,by as much as of a better covenant also he is, mediator, which indeed, upon better promises, hath been legislated.
For, if, that first, had been, faultless, not, in that case, for a second, had there been sought, a place.
