Bible: Heb 6:16-20

6:16 For people 1  swear by something greater than themselves, 2  and the oath serves as a confirmation to end all dispute. 3  6:17 In the same way 4  God wanted to demonstrate more clearly to the heirs of the promise that his purpose was unchangeable, 5  and so he intervened with an oath, 6:18 so that we who have found refuge in him 6  may find strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us through two unchangeable things, since it is impossible for God to lie. 6:19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and steadfast, which reaches inside behind the curtain, 7  6:20 where Jesus our forerunner entered on our behalf, since he became a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. 8
