Hebrews 7:23-28

CEB 23 The others who became priests are numerous because death prevented them from continuing to serve. NRS 23 Furthermore, the former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office; CEB 24 In contrast, he holds the office of priest permanently because he continues to serve forever. NRS 24 but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. CEB 25 This is why he can completely save those who are approaching God through him, because he always lives to speak with God for them. NRS 25 Consequently he is able for all time to save those who approach God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. CEB 26 It's appropriate for us to have this kind of high priest: holy, innocent, incorrupt, separate from sinners, and raised high above the heavens. NRS 26 For it was fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, blameless, undefiled, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. CEB 27 He doesn't need to offer sacrifices every day like the other high priests, first for their own sins and then for the sins of the people. He did this once for all when he offered himself. NRS 27 Unlike the other high priests, he has no need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for those of the people; this he did once for all when he offered himself. CEB 28 The Law appoints people who are prone to weakness as high priests, but the content of the solemn pledge, which came after the Law, appointed a Son who has been made perfect forever. NRS 28 For the law appoints as high priests those who are subject to weakness, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever.
