Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 7:18

_ _ there isGreek, “there takes place,” according to Psalms 110:4.

_ _ disannuling — a repealing.

_ _ of the commandment — ordaining the Levitical priesthood. And, as the Levitical priesthood and the law are inseparably joined, since the former is repealed, the latter is so also (see on Hebrews 7:11).

_ _ going before — the legal ordinance introducing and giving place to the Christian, the antitypical and permanent end of the former.

_ _ weakness and unprofitableness — The opposite of “power” (Hebrews 7:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 7:11-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 7:18

For there is implied in this new and everlasting priesthood, and in the new dispensation connected therewith, a disannulling of the preceding commandment — An abrogation of the Mosaic law. For the weakness and unprofitableness thereof — For its insufficiency either to justify or to sanctify.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 7:18

(9) For there is verily a disannulling of the (h) commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.

(9) Again, that no man object that the last priesthood was added to make a perfect one by joining them both together, he proves that the first was made void by the later as unprofitable, by the nature of them both. For how could those material and transitory things sanctify us, either by themselves, or by being joined with another?

(h) The ceremonial law.
