The author grounds his confidence in the church's final salvation and his desire for the church to exhibit full assurance of hope unto the end (vv. 19-12) in vv. 13-20 by drawing their attention to God's sure oath sworn to Abraham in Genesis 22:17. The promise is sure and steadfast because of God's unswerving character, and we see that after waiting patiently Abraham received that which was promised to him, i.e. the restatement of covenant blessings in Gen 22. This gives believers today strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us (v. 18), which is an anchor for our souls (v. 19) because of Jesus Christ, who has already entered in to the holy of holies in the heavenly temple as the Melchizedekian high priest forever (a point which will be developed further in chs 7-9).

τῷ γὰρ Ἀβραὰμ ἐπαγγειλάμενος ὁ θεός,
For when God made a promise to Abraham,
ἐπεὶ κατ’ οὐδενὸς εἶχεν μείζονος ὀμόσαι,
since he had no one greater by whom to swear,
ὤμοσεν καθ’ ἑαυτοῦ,
he swore by himself,
λέγων· εἰ μὴν εὐλογῶν εὐλογήσω σε
by saying, "Surely I will bless you
καὶ πληθύνων πληθυνῶ σε·
and surely I will multiply you."

And thus Abraham, having patiently waited,

ἄνθρωποι γὰρ κατὰ τοῦ μείζονος ὀμνύουσιν,
For people swear by something greater than themselves,

and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation.

So because God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose,
ἐμεσίτευσεν ὅρκῳ,
he guaranteed it with an oath,
ἵνα διὰ δύο πραγμάτων ἀμεταθέτων,
so that [because of] two unchangeable things,
