Hebrews 7:12,18-19,28

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12 For when the priesthood is changed, there is a necessity to change the law also.

 18 For there is truly a cancellation of the previous commandment1 [Levitical priesthood with its tithes] because of the weakness and ineffectiveness of it.

 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by which we draw near to God.

 28 For the law makes men high priests who have infirmities; but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son, who is perfect forevermore.

 6 But now he [Christ] has obtained a more excellent ministry, since he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then there would have been no replacement sought for a second [covenant].
