Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:2

to whom Abraham gave also the tenth portion of all; first being interpreted King of righteousness, and then also King of Salem, which is King of peace;

Tools specific to Heb 7:3

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:3

without father, without mother, without genealogy; having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but assimilated to the Son of God, abides a priest continually.

Now consider how great this personage was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth out of the spoils.

But beyond all gainsaying, the inferior is blessed by the better.

For he was yet in the loins of his father when Melchisedec met him.

Tools specific to Heb 7:11

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:11

If indeed then perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, for the people had their law given to them in connexion with *it*, what need was there still that a different priest should arise according to the order of Melchisedec, and not be named after the order of Aaron?

Tools specific to Heb 7:12

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:12

For, the priesthood being changed, there takes place of necessity a change of law also.

For it is clear that our Lord has sprung out of Juda, as to which tribe Moses spake nothing as to priests.

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:15

And it is yet more abundantly evident, since a different priest arises according to the similitude of Melchisedec,

Tools specific to Heb 7:16

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:16

who has been constituted not according to law of fleshly commandment, but according to power of indissoluble life.

Tools specific to Heb 7:17

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:17

For it is borne witness, *Thou* art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedec.

Tools specific to Heb 7:18

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:18

For there is a setting aside of the commandment going before for its weakness and unprofitableness,

Tools specific to Heb 7:19

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:19

(for the law perfected nothing,) and the introduction of a better hope by which we draw nigh to God.

Tools specific to Heb 7:20

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:20

And by how much it was not without the swearing of an oath;

Tools specific to Heb 7:21

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:21

(for they are become priests without the swearing of an oath, but he with the swearing of an oath, by him who said, as to him, The Lord has sworn, and will not repent of it, *Thou* art priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedec;)

Tools specific to Heb 7:22

by so much Jesus became surety of a better covenant.

Tools specific to Heb 7:23

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:23

And they have been many priests, on account of being hindered from continuing by death;

Tools specific to Heb 7:24

Unchecked Copy Box Heb 7:24
