Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:1 - For this Malki-Tzedek, king of Shalem, Kohen of El `Elyon, who met Avraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:2 - to whom also Avraham divided a tenth part of all (being first, by interpretation, king of righteousness, and then also king of Shalem, which is king of shalom;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:3 - without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God), remains a Kohen continually.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:4 - Now consider how great this man was, to whom even Avraham, the patriarch, gave a tenth out of the best spoils.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:5 - They indeed of the sons of Levi who receive the Kohen's office have a mitzvah to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brothers, though these have come out of the loins of Avraham,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:6 - but he whose genealogy is not counted from them has taken tithes of Avraham, and has blessed him who has the promises.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:7 - But without any dispute the less is blessed by the better.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:8 - Here people who die receive tithes, but there one receives tithes of whom it is testified that he lives.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:9 - So to say, through Avraham even Levi, who receives tithes, has paid tithes,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:10 - for he was yet in the loins of his father when Malki-Tzedek met him.
(Psa 110:4 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:11 - Now if there was perfection through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people have received the law), what further need was there for another Kohen to arise after the order of Malki-Tzedek, and not be called after the order of Aharon?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:12 - For the priesthood being changed, there is of necessity a change made also in the law.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:13 - For he of whom these things are said belongs to another tribe, from which no one has officiated at the altar.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:14 - For it is evident that our Lord has sprung out of Yehudah, about which tribe Moshe spoke nothing concerning priesthood.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:15 - This is yet more abundantly evident, if after the likeness of Malki-Tzedek there arises another Kohen,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:16 - who has been made, not after the law of a fleshly mitzvah, but after the power of an endless life:
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:17 - for it is testified, "You are a Kohen forever, According to the order of Malki-Tzedek."
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:18 - For there is an annulling of a foregoing mitzvah because of its weakness and uselessness
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:19 - (for the law made nothing perfect), and a bringing in thereupon of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:20 - Inasmuch as he was not made Kohen without the taking of an oath
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:21 - (for they indeed have been made Kohanim without an oath), but he with an oath by him that says of him, "The Lord swore and will not change his mind, 'You are a Kohen forever, According to the order of Malki-Tzedek'".
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:22 - By so much has Yeshua become the collateral of a better covenant.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:23 - Many, indeed, have been made Kohanim, because they are hindered from continuing by death.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:24 - But he, because he lives forever, has his priesthood unchangeable.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:25 - Therefore he is also able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, seeing he ever lives to make intercession for them.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:26 - For such a Kohen Gadol was fitting for us: holy, guiltless, undefiled, separated from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:27 - who doesn't need, like those Kohenim Gedolim, to daily offer up sacrifices, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. For this he did once for all, when he offered up himself.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:28 - For the law appoints men as Kohenim Gedolim who have weakness, but the word of the oath which came after the law appoints a Son forever who has been perfected.
