希伯来书 9:13-22Chinese Contemporary Bible (CCB) 13 如果把山羊血、公牛血和母牛犊的灰洒在污秽的人[a]身上,就可以使他们圣洁,身体得到洁净, 14 更何况基督借着永恒的灵把自己毫无瑕疵地献给上帝呢?祂的血岂不更能洗净我们的良心,使我们脱离导致灭亡的行为,以便事奉永活的上帝吗? 15 因此,祂是新约的中保,借着死亡救赎了触犯旧约的人,好叫那些蒙召的人得到所应许的永恒基业。 16 凡是遗嘱[b],必须等到立遗嘱的人死了以后才能生效。 17 如果立遗嘱的人依然健在,遗嘱就不能生效。 18 正因如此,连立旧约也需要用血才能生效。 19 摩西依照律法向犹太人颁布所有诫命之后,便用红色的羊毛和牛膝草蘸了牛犊和山羊的血以及水,洒在律法书和百姓身上, 20 说:“这是上帝用来与你们立约的血。” 21 他又照样把血洒在圣幕和所有用来献祭的器具上。 22 根据律法,几乎所有的器具都要用血来洁净,因为若不流血,罪就得不到赦免。 Hebrews 9:13-22New International Version (NIV) 13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. 14 How much more, then, will the blood of […]
