Bible: Hebrews 6:16-18

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.
