Hebrews 7:20-22 Darby Translation (DARBY)

20 And by how much [it was] not without the swearing of an oath;

21 (for they are become priests without the swearing of an oath, but he with the swearing of an oath, by him who said, as to him, The Lord has sworn, and will not repent [of it], *Thou* [art] priest for ever [according to the order of Melchisedec];)

22 by so much Jesus became surety of a better covenant.

Hebrews 7:20-22 New International Version (NIV)

20 And it was not without an oath! Others became priests without any oath, 21 but he became a priest with an oath when God said to him:

“The Lord has sworn
    and will not change his mind:
    ‘You are a priest forever.’”[a]

22 Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.
