Hebrews 7:16

Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Read Chapter 7

John Chrysostom

AD 407
And yet this does not follow after, who was made not according to the law of a carnal commandment: for what would follow would be to say, but according to that of a spiritual one. However by carnal, he implied temporary. As he says also in another place, carnal ordinances imposed until the time of reformation. Hebrews 9:10 According to the power of life, that is, because He lives by His own power. He had said, that there is also a change of law, and up to this point he has shown it; henceforward he enquires into the cause, that which above all gives full assurance to men's minds, [I mean] the knowing the cause thoroughly; and it leads us more to faith when we have learned also the cause, and the principle according to which [the thing] comes to pass.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
