Hebrews 7:18-20 New English Translation (NET Bible)

18 On the one hand a former command is set aside[a] because it is weak and useless,[b] 19 for the law made nothing perfect. On the other hand a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God. 20 And since[c] this was not done without a sworn affirmation—for the others have become priests without a sworn affirmation,


  1. Hebrews 7:18 tn Grk “the setting aside of a former command comes to pass.”
  2. Hebrews 7:18 tn Grk “because of its weakness and uselessness.”
  3. Hebrews 7:20 sn The Greek text contains an elaborate comparison between v. 20a and v. 22, with a parenthesis (vv. 20b-21) in between; the comparison is literally, “by as much as…by so much” or “to the degree that…to that same degree.”
