Context Readings

God Will Not Forget You

16 For men make oath by something greater than themselves, and they accept an oath as settling finally any disagreement they may have. 17 Therefore, God in his desire to make it perfectly clear to those to whom he made his promise, that his purpose was unalterable, bound himself with an oath, 18 so that by these two unalterable things, which make it impossible for God to break his promise, we who have taken refuge with him may be greatly encouraged to seize upon the hope that is offered to us.
