Hebrews 7.

The Book of Hebrews

Return to IndexHenry's Commentary

Chapter 8

1

Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

2

A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

3

For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

4

For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:

5

Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
Exod 25:40 Exod 26:30 Acts 7:44

6

But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

7

For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

8

For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
Jer 31:31

9

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
Jer 31:32

10

1For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my 2laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
1 Jer 31:33, Heb 10:16
2 Isaiah 2:3, Isaiah 42:4, Isaiah 42:21, Micah 4:2, Matt 5:18, Romans 3:31

11

And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
Jer 31:34

12

1For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their ainiquities will I remember no more.
1 Jer 31:34, Heb 10:17

13

In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Jer 31:31
