Hebrews 7:16
who is made not according to the law of a carnal commandment, but according to the power of an endless life.
who hath been made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life:
who has become a priest, not on the basis of a physical and legal requirement in the Law [concerning his ancestry as a descendant of Levi], but on the basis of the power of an indestructible and endless life.
Who has been constituted a Priest, not on the basis of a bodily legal requirement [an externally imposed command concerning His physical ancestry], but on the basis of the power of an endless and indestructible Life.
Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
He has become a priest by the power of a life that can’t be destroyed, rather than a legal requirement about physical descent.
one who became a cohen not by virtue of a rule in the Torah concerning physical descent, but by virtue of the power of an indestructible life.
That person wasn’t appointed because of his ancestors, but because his life can never end.
who has been constituted not according to law of fleshly commandment, but according to power of indissoluble life.
Who has become such not based-on the law of a fleshy commandment, but based on the power of an indestructible life!
Who is made not according to the law of a carnal commandment, but according to the power of an indissoluble life:
He was made a priest, but not because he met the requirement of being born into the right family. He became a priest by the power of a life that will never end.
who has become a priest, not on the basis of a legal requirement concerning bodily descent, but by the power of an indestructible life.
who has become a priest, not on the basis of a legal requirement concerning bodily descent, but by the power of an indestructible life.
He was not made a priest by ·human rules and laws [or regulations about physical descent/ancestry] but through the power of his life, which ·continues forever [or is indestructable].
Which is not made Priest after the Law of the carnal commandment, but after the power of the endless life.
That person is a priest, not because he met human requirements, but because he has power that comes from a life that cannot be destroyed.
He was made a priest, not by human rules and regulations, but through the power of a life which has no end.
who did not become a priest based on a legal command concerning physical descent but based on the power of an indestructible life.
He was not made a priest by human rules and laws. He became a priest through the power of his life, which continues forever.
who was appointed to be a priest, not on the basis of a genealogical registry, but rather on the power of an indestructible life.
How fundamental is this change becomes all the more apparent when we see this other priest appearing according to the Melchizedek pattern, and deriving his priesthood not by virtue of a command imposed from outside, but from the power of indestructible life within. For the witness to him, as we have seen, is: ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’
who is not made according to the law of a carnal commandment, but by the virtue of an indissoluble life;
Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

did not become a priest by meeting the old requirement of belonging to the tribe of Levi, but on the basis of power flowing from a life that cannot end.
But the Melchizedek story provides a perfect analogy: Jesus, a priest like Melchizedek, not by genealogical descent but by the sheer force of resurrection life—he lives!—“priest forever in the royal order of Melchizedek.” The former way of doing things, a system of commandments that never worked out the way it was supposed to, was set aside; the law brought nothing to maturity. Another way—Jesus!—a way that does work, that brings us right into the presence of God, is put in its place.
who becomes a priest not by a law pertaining to ancestry, but by the power of an endless life.
