whom God has set forth a mercy-seatq, through faith in his blood, for the shewing forth of his righteousness, in respect of the passing bya the sins that had taken place before, through the forbearance of God;

JND Translation Notes

+
q
I do not think this word can be used for "[a] propitiatory [sacrifice]" or "propitiation"; it certainly is not the habitual use in the LXX; and we have the two parts of the work of the great day of atonement, here and in ch. 4.25; "set forth," here, has a reflexive force; see Note e, Heb. 1.3.
a
"In respect of the passing by the sins." I have hesitated as to using dia with the accusative in this sense here; but on the whole I do not doubt it gives the sense. God had passed by, not brought into judgment, the sins of Old Testament believers; and the accomplishment of the atonement showed His righteousness in this. Now the righteousness is itself shown, and to be relied on.

a
propitiatory: That is, a mercy-seat as in Hebrews 9:5. (Notes on Romans, x.)
propitiatory: it is strange to see that... [the RV. retains] "a propitiation" with the Authorized Version in verse 25, instead at best of presenting a "propitiatory" or mercy-seat as the Greeks generally understood, and they themselves do elsewhere (Heb. 9:5) and Tyndale did here. (Bible Treasury 13:350)
set forth as a propitiatory through faith in his blood: [The American correctors of the RV are] right. "set for a mercy-seat (or, propitiatory) through faith in his blood," omitting marginal 9, 10 and 11. (Bible Treasury 14:351)
