15 For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, because a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant.* 24For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by human hands, a mere copy of the true one, but he entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. 25Nor was it to offer himself again and again, as the high priest enters the Holy Place year after year with blood that is not his own; 26for then he would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to remove sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27And just as it is appointed for mortals to die once, and after that the judgement, 28so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
22And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out demons. 23And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 26And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come. 27But no one can enter a strong mans house and plunder his property without first tying up the strong man; then indeed the house can be plundered.
28 Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter; 29but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin 30for they had said, He has an unclean spirit.
1 Sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done marvellous things.
2 His own right hand and his holy arm
have won for him the victory.
3 The Lord has made known his salvation;
his deliverance has he openly shown in the sight of the nations.
4 He has remembered his mercy and faithfulness
towards the house of Israel,
and all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
5 Sound praises to the Lord, all the earth;
break into singing and make music.
6 Make music to the Lord with the lyre,
with the lyre and the voice of melody.
7 With trumpets and the sound of the horn
sound praises before the Lord, the King.
8 Let the sea thunder and all that fills it,
the world and all that dwell upon it.
9 Let the rivers clap their hands
and let the hills ring out together before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
10 In righteousness shall he judge the world
and the peoples with equity.
