an unchangeable priesthood.









(24) But this man.--Better, But He, because He remaineth for ever, hath His priesthood inviolable (or, unchangeable). The former ordinance related to a race, and the individuals were ever passing away; since His life is "indissoluble" (Hebrews 7:16), none can trespass on His right and invade His priesthood. The rendering of the margin, "that passeth not from one to another," expresses nearly the same thought; but it is very doubtful whether the Greek will bear this meaning.
