Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 7:20

Verse 20. Not without an
oath] "The apostle's reasoning here is founded on this, that God never interposed his oath, except to show the certainty and immutability of the thing sworn. Thus he sware to Abraham, Gen. xxii. 16-18, that in his seed all the nations of the earth should be blessed; and to the rebellious Israelites, Deut. i. 34, 35, that they should not enter into his rest; and to Moses, Deut. iv. 21, that he should not go into Canaan; and to David, Psa. lxxxix. 4, that his seed should endure for ever, and his throne unto all generations. Wherefore, since Christ was made a priest, not without an oath that he should be a priest for ever, after the similitude of Melchisedec, that circumstance showed God's immutable resolution never to change or abolish his priesthood, nor to change or abolish the covenant which was established on his priesthood; whereas the Levitical priesthood and the law of Moses, being established without an oath, were thereby declared to be changeable at God's pleasure." This judicious note is from Dr. Macknight.

John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 20. And inasmuch as not without an
oath , etc..] Our version supplies as follows, he was made priest ; which well agrees with what is said in the next verse; the Syriac version renders it, and which he confirmed to us by an oath; that is, the better hope, Christ and his priesthood, said to be brought in, and by which men draw nigh to God; this is established by the oath of God himself referring to ( <19B004> Psalm 110:4) afterwards cited in proof of it.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 11-25 - The
priesthood and law by which perfection could not come, are don away; a Priest is risen, and a dispensation now set up, by which tru believers may be made perfect. That there is such a change is plain The law which made the Levitical priesthood, showed that the priest were frail, dying creatures, not able to save their own lives, muc less could they save the souls of those who came to them. But the Hig Priest of our profession holds his office by the power of endless lif in himself; not only to keep himself alive, but to give spiritual an eternal life to all who rely upon his sacrifice and intercession. The better covenant, of which Jesus was the Surety, is not here contraste with the covenant of works, by which every transgressor is shut u under the curse. It is distinguished from the Sinai covenant with Israel, and the legal dispensation under which the church so lon remained. The better covenant brought the church and every believe into clearer light, more perfect liberty, and more abundant privileges In the order of Aaron there was a multitude of priests, of high priest one after another; but in the priesthood of Christ there is only on and the same. This is the believer's safety and happiness, that thi everlasting High Priest is able to save to the uttermost, in all times in all cases. Surely then it becomes us to desire a spirituality an holiness, as much beyond those of the Old Testament believers, as ou advantages exceed theirs.

20. Not without an
oath (ou cwriv orkwmosiav). The A.V. is, on the whole, better than Rev. by inserting he was made priest. JOrkwmosia only in Hebrews. In LXX see Ezek. xvii. 18; 1 Esdr. ix. 93. For an oath rend. the taking of an oath.
