Hebrews 7:18–19; Hebrews 8:7; Galatians 2:21

18 For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside dbecause of its weakness and uselessness 19 (for ethe law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, fa better hope is introduced, through which gwe draw near to God.

fFor if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second.

21 I do not nullify the grace of God, for xif righteousness1 were through the law, ythen Christ died for no purpose.
