2For a tent* was constructed, the first one, in which were the lampstand, the table, and the bread of the Presence;* this is called the Holy Place. 3Behind the second curtain was a tent* called the Holy of Holies.
11 But when Christ came as a high priest of the good things that have come,* then through the greater and perfect* tent* (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation), 12he entered once for all into the Holy Place, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. 13For if the blood of goats and bulls, with the sprinkling of the ashes of a heifer, sanctifies those who have been defiled so that their flesh is purified, 14how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit* offered himself without blemish to God, purify our* conscience from dead works to worship the living God!
20and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat. 21When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, He has gone out of his mind.
1 Clap your hands together, all you peoples;
O sing to God with shouts of joy.
2 For the Lord Most High is to be feared;
he is the great King over all the earth.
3 He subdued the peoples under us
and the nations under our feet.
4 He has chosen our heritage for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loves.
5 God has gone up with a merry noise,
the Lord with the sound of the trumpet.
6 O sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing praises with all your skill.
8 God reigns over the nations;
God has taken his seat upon his holy throne.
