Hebrews 7:20-22 New Testament for Everyone (NTE)
The Permanent Priesthood of Jesus
20 This is all the more so when you consider that an oath was sworn. The Levitical priests, you see, become priests without an oath, 21 but the Messiah attains his priesthood with an oath, through what was said to him:
The Lord has sworn and will not repent;
22 Jesus has thus, additionally, become the guarantee 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
22 Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.
