Hebrews 7:24 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Hath an unchangeable priesthood (ἀπαράβατον ἔχει τὴν ἱερωσύνην)

Rend. hath his priesthood unchangeable. The A.V. misses the possessive force of the article, his priesthood, and the emphasis is on unchangeable ἀπαράβατος, N.T.o. olxx. This may be explained either as inviolable, or which does not pass over to another. Comp. Exodus 32:8; Sir. 23:18. Usage is in favor of the former meaning, but the other falls in better with the course of thought.
