9:3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holy of holies;
9:4 having a golden altar of incense, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein [was] a golden pot holding the manna, and Aaron`s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
9:5 and above it cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy-seat; of which things we cannot now speak severally.
9:6 Now these things having been thus prepared, the priests go in continually into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the services;

9:21 Moreover the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry he sprinkled in like manner with the blood.
9:22 And according to the law, I may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and apart from shedding of blood there is no remission.
9:23 It was necessary therefore that the copies of the things in the heavens should be cleansed with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
9:26 else must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once at the end of the ages hath he been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
9:27 And inasmuch as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this [cometh] judgment;
