22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and a without shedding of blood is no remission.

23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these ; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

Lev. viii. 15, 19: Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it. And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about. See on ver. 13.

FOR the law having a a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto d perfect.

2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered ? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.

3 e But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
