“For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.”
King James Version (KJV)
7:19 For the law - Taken by itself, separate from the gospel. Made nothing perfect - Could not perfect its votaries, either in faith or love, in happiness or holiness. But the bringing in of a better hope - Of the gospel dispensation, which gives us a better ground of confidence, does. By which we draw nigh to God - Yea, so nigh as to be one spirit with him. And this is true perfection.
Heb 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect. The law was only a preparatory arrangement. It did not fit men for eternal life. But the bringing in of a better hope. "A bringing in thereupon of a better hope" (Revised Version). The idea is: The law was disannulled and a "better hope" brought in, that of the gospel, "by which we draw nigh unto God".
