Hebrews 9:23-24

Context
9:23 So it was necessary for the sketches 1  of the things in heaven to be purified with these sacrifices, 2  but the heavenly things themselves required 3  better sacrifices than these. 9:24 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with hands – the representation 4  of the true sanctuary 5  – but into heaven itself, and he appears now in God’s presence for us.

1 tn Or “prototypes,” “outlines,” referring to the earthly sanctuary. See Heb 8:5 above for the prior use of this term.

2 tn Grk “with these”; in the translation the referent (sacrifices) has been specified for clarity.

3 tn Grk “the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.”

4 tn Or “prefiguration.”

5 tn The word “sanctuary” is not in the Greek text at this point, but has been supplied for clarity.
