Hebrews 7:18

A disannulling (aqethsi). Late word from aqetew (alpha privative and tiqhmi), to set aside ( Mark 6:26 ), in N.T. only here and Hebrews 9:26 . Common in the papyri in a legal sense of making void. Involved in metaqesi (change in verse Hebrews 7:12 ). Foregoing (proagoush). Present active participle of proagw, to go before ( 1 Timothy 1:18 ). Because of its weakness (dia to auth asqene). Neuter abstract adjective with article for quality as in verse 1 Timothy 7 with dia and accusative case for reason. Unprofitableness (anwpele). Old compound (alpha privative and opelo) useless, and neuter singular like asqene. In N.T. only here and Titus 3:9 .
