Majesty on High!
We have a High Priest who exceeds even the excellence of Melchizedek:
Jesus is seated at the right hand of God,
a minister in the sanctuary,
and true tent the Lord has established.
We thank you for the more excellent ministry of Jesus.
He is the mediator of the better covenant
promised by God through the prophet Jeremiah.
You, O God, found fault with the first covenant,
and you made it obsolete and replaced it with the new covenant.
What is obsolete and growing old will soon disappear.
But we are confident that the new covenant will last forever,
for we have confidence in you.
