Hebrews 9:6-10 New International Version

6  When everything had been arranged like this, the priests entered regularly into the outer room to carry on their ministry. 7  But only the high priest entered the inner room, and that only once a year, and never without blood, which he offered for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.

8  The Holy Spirit was showing by this that the way into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still functioning. 9  This is an illustration for the present time, indicating that the gifts and sacrifices being offered were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper. 10  They are only a matter of food and drink and various ceremonial washings-external regulations applying until the time of the new order.
