In Hebrews 6:18 what are the two unchangeable things?

How does God verify His word?

Thanks for your question.

The two unchangeable things are God's word (ie, the promise itself) and the vow that He added to it.

God's word, of course, is of absolute validity in itself; the vow, therefore, is superfluous, but exactly because of this, exceptionally impressive. It is impossible, then, that God could have lied (Num 23:19; 1Sa 15:29; John 7:18; Tit 1:2); He is doubly bound to be faithful to His promises to Abraham. The result is that we may very courageously hold the hope offered to us. The implication is that the Christian hope consists of nothing other than what God promised to Abraham (cp Rom 15:8) and therefore that our realization of that hope is finally as certain as God's word and his oath. The unity between old and new is in view.
