Hebrews 7:20-22 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

20 And how great it is, not without swearing [that Christ is made priest after the order of Melchisedec];

21 but the others [forsooth others] be made priests without an oath; but this priest with an oath, by him that said to him, The Lord swore, and it shall not rue him, Thou art a priest without end, by the order of Melchisedec [Thou art a priest into without end, after the order of Melchisedec];

22 in so much Jesus is made [better] promiser of the better testament.

Hebrews 7:20-22 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

20 And it is a better hope in that it was not promised without an oath. 21 Those priests were made without an oath, but this priest with an oath, by him that said to him: The Lord swore and will not repent: You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. 22 And thus did Jesus establish and secure a better testament.
