Hebrews 9:15; Hebrews 9:17

15 Therefore he is vthe mediator of a new covenant, so that wthose who are called may xreceive the promised eternal inheritance, ysince a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.1

17 For za will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive.
