Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:1 - For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham as he was returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:2 - to whom also Abraham apportioned a tenth part of all the spoils, was first of all, by the translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then also king of Salem, which is king of peace.

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, he remains a priest perpetually.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:4 - Now observe how great this man was to whom Abraham, the patriarch, gave a tenth of the choicest spoils.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:5 - And those indeed of the sons of Levi who receive the priest’s office have commandment [fn]in the Law to collect [fn]a tenth from the people, that is, from their brethren, although these [fn]are descended from Abraham.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:6 - But the one whose genealogy is not traced from them collected [fn]a tenth from Abraham and [fn]blessed the one who had the promises.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:7 - But without any dispute the lesser is blessed by the greater.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:8 - In this case mortal men receive tithes, but in that case one receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives on.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:9 - And, so to speak, through Abraham even Levi, who received tithes, paid tithes,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:10 - for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:11 - Now if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the people received the Law), what further need was there for another priest to arise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be designated according to the order of Aaron?

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:12 - For when the priesthood is changed, of necessity there takes place a change of law also.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:13 - For the one concerning whom these things are spoken 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 [fn]was descended from Judah, a tribe with reference to which Moses spoke nothing concerning priests.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:15 - And this is clearer still, if another priest arises according to the likeness of Melchizedek,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:16 - who has become such not on the basis of a law of [fn]physical requirement, but according to the power of an indestructible life.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:17 - For it is attested of Him,
“YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER
ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK.”

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:18 - For, on the one hand, there is a setting aside of a former commandment because of its weakness and uselessness

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:19 - (for the Law made nothing perfect), and on the other hand there is a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:20 - And inasmuch as it was not without an oath

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:21 - (for they indeed became priests without an oath, but He with an oath through the One who said to Him,
“THE LORD HAS SWORN
AND WILL NOT CHANGE HIS MIND,
‘YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER’”);

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:22 - so much the more also Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:23 - [fn]The former priests, on the one hand, existed in greater numbers because they were prevented by death from continuing,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:24 - but Jesus, on the other hand, because He continues forever, holds His priesthood permanently.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:25 - Therefore He is able also to save [fn]forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:26 - For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens;

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:27 - who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:28 - For the Law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the Law, appoints a Son, made perfect forever.
