For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,
Saying, Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.
And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. ~ Hebrews 6:13-20
