“For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:7 For if the first had been faultless - If that dispensation had answered all God's designs and man's wants, if it had not been weak and unprofitable unable to make anything perfect, no place would have been for a second.
Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant. The covenant of Sinai, the Law of Moses, the Old Testament. Had been faultless. It was faulty and could not make men perfect. See PNT "Heb 7:18".
