Hebrews 7:18-20 The Passion Translation (TPT)

18 The old order of priesthood has been set aside as weak and powerless.[a] 19 For the law[b] has never made anyone perfect, but in its place is a far better hope which gives us confidence to experience intimacy with God! 20 And he confirmed it to us with his solemn vow.[c] For the former priests took their office without an oath,


  1. Hebrews 7:18 Or “useless.”
  2. Hebrews 7:19 Or in Aramaic “Torah.”
  3. Hebrews 7:20 As translated from the Aramaic. The Greek is “Since this was not done with a solemn oath, for the others became priests without a sworn oath.”
