THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Hebrews (Author Paul)

6:20Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

7:11If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

7:12For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

7:13For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.

7:14For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

7:15And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

7:16Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

7:17For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

8:1Now 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;

8:2A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

8:4For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:

8:5Who 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.

8:6But 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.
