|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
17 God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind.
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.
