11 But when Christ came as high priestu of the good things that are now already here,a v he went through the greater and more perfect tabernaclew that is not made with human hands,x that is to say, is not a part of this creation. 12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves;y but he entered the Most Holy Placez once for alla by his own blood,b thus obtainingb eternal redemption. 13 The blood of goats and bullsc and the ashes of a heiferd sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. 14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirite offered himselff unblemished to God, cleanse our consciencesg from acts that lead to death,c h so that we may serve the living God!i
15 For this reason Christ is the mediatorj of a new covenant,k that those who are calledl may receive the promisedm eternal inheritancen—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.o
Some early manuscripts are to come
Or blood, having obtained
Or from useless rituals
