|Hebrews 7: 23 - 28
||The former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office;
||but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues for ever.
||Consequently he is able for all time to save those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
||For it was fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, blameless, unstained, separated from sinners, exalted above the heavens.
||He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people; he did this once for all when he offered up himself.
||Indeed, the law appoints men in their weakness as high priests, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect for ever.
