How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?


Hebrews 9:1-5  (King James Version)

1 Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.

2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.

3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;

4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;

5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.


Hebrews 9:1-5  (New International Version)

1 Now the first covenant had regulations for worship and also an earthly sanctuary.

2 A tabernacle was set up. In its first room were the lampstand, the table and the consecrated bread; this was called the Holy Place.

3 Behind the second curtain was a room called the Most Holy Place,

4 which had the golden altar of incense and the gold-covered ark of the covenant. This ark contained the gold jar of manna, Aaron's staff that had budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant.

5 Above the ark were the cherubim of the Glory, overshadowing the atonement cover. But we cannot discuss these things in detail now.

Hebrews 9:1-5  (SDA Clear Word Bible)

1 Under the old order of things, there were specific rules for worship connected with a man-made Sanctuary.

2 When the Levites put up the Sanctuary tent, they placed the seven-branched candlestick and the table with the twelve flat loaves of bread behind the first curtain in the part called the Holy Place.

3 Behind the second curtain was that part of the Sanctuary called the Most Holy Place.

4 Although the little altar of incense was located in the Holy Place, it was considered part of the Most Holy Place. In the Most Holy Place itself was the gold covenant box, inside of which was the golden pot filled with manna, Aaron's rod that had budded and the two tables of stone on which the Ten Commandments were written.

5 On top of the covenant box were two beautifully carved angels, one on each side, whose outstretched wings overshadowed the lid of the box called the mercy seat where the presence of God appeared. I don't want to take the time to explain the meaning of each piece of furniture and the function of all the Sanctuary services with which you're so familiar.
