Bible: Hebrews 9:6-10

9:6 So with these things prepared like this, the priests enter continually into the outer tent 1  as they perform their duties. 9:7 But only the high priest enters once a year into the inner tent, 2  and not without blood that he offers for himself and for the sins of the people committed in ignorance. 3  9:8 The Holy Spirit is making clear that the way into the holy place had not yet appeared as long as the old tabernacle 4  was standing. 9:9 This was a symbol for the time then present, when gifts and sacrifices were offered that could not perfect the conscience of the worshiper. 9:10 They served only for matters of food and drink 5  and various washings; they are external regulations 6  imposed until the new order came. 7
