|Hebrew Names Version (HNV)
||New International Version (NIV)
17 Wherein God, being determined to show more abundantly to the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, interposed with an oath;
17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.
