New Defender's Study Bible Notes
6:18 for God to lie. With the omnipotent God, all things are possible (Luke 18:27) except to lie (Titus 1:2). In fact, whatever He says is true, by definition (Psalm 33:4). He cannot say or do anything contrary to His very nature.
6:19 within the veil. Contrast the testimony of Hebrews 13:13. The Lord Jesus Christ, our High Priest, with His own shed blood, is our approach to God “within the veil” (Leviticus 16:15), because He first bore our reproach before God as He shed His blood “without the camp.”
