God's Promise by an Oath13For to Abraham God having promised, since according to no one had he greater to swear an oath by, swore an oath according to himself, 14saying, Assuredly blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you. 15And thus, having been long-suffering, he succeeded in the promise. 16[2men 3indeed 1For 5by 6the 7greater 4swear an oath], and [6in all 7disputes to them 3is an end 4for 5security 1the 2oath]. 17In which [2more extra 3wanting 1God] to display to the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, mediated by an oath; 18that through two [2things 1immutable], (in which it was impossible for God to lie,) [2strong 3consolation 1we should have], we the ones taking refuge to hold to the [2situated before us 1hope], 19which hope [2as 3an anchor 1we have] of the soul, both safe and firm, and entering into the inner veil; 20where as forerunner for us, Jesus entered according to the order of Melchisedek, [2chief priest 1becoming] into the eon.
