Hebrews 6:13-16

13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.”[d] 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.

16 People swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument.

One response to “Hebrews 6:13-16

  1. God can swear by no one greater than Himself. True, seems simplistic, and slightly humorous. We say that we don’t need God to swear and confirm, yet we question Him and don’t wait for what He has promised.

    Abraham waited to near the end of his life. To a point where it was illogical for his wife to have a son, yet God used His own time, and the plans of His choosing to fulfill His purpose and show His plan in the earth.
