“Saying, This is the blood of the Testament which God hath enioyned vnto you.”
King James Version (KJV)
17. For a Testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all whilest the Testatour liueth. 18. Whereupon, neither the first Testament was dedicated without blood. 19. For when Moses had spoken euery precept to all the people according to the Law, he tooke the blood of Calues and of Goates, with water and scarlet wooll, and hysope, and sprinckled both the booke and all the people, 20. Saying, This is the blood of the Testament which God hath enioyned vnto you. 21. Moreouer, hee sprinkled with blood both the Tabernacle, and all the vessels of the Ministery. 22. And almost all things are by the Law purged with blood: and without shedding of blood is no remission. 23. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heauens should bee purified with these, but the heauenly things themselues with better sacrifices then these.
