Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:1 - Now this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, met Abraham as he was returning from defeating the kings and blessed him.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:2 - To him also Abraham apportioned a tithe of everything. His name first means king of righteousness, then king of Salem, that is, king of peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:3 - Without father, without mother, without genealogy, he has neither beginning of days nor end of life but is like the son of God, and he remains a priest for all time.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:4 - But see how great he must be, if Abraham the patriarch gave him a tithe of his plunder.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:5 - And those of the sons of Levi who receive the priestly office have authorization according to the law to collect a tithe from the people, that is, from their fellow countrymen, although they too are descendants of Abraham.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:6 - But Melchizedek who does not share their ancestry collected a tithe from Abraham and blessed the one who possessed the promise.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:7 - Now without dispute the inferior is blessed by the superior,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:8 - and in one case tithes are received by mortal men, while in the other by him who is affirmed to be alive.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:9 - And it could be said that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid a tithe through Abraham.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:10 - For he was still in his ancestor Abraham's loins when Melchizedek met him.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:11 - So if perfection had in fact been possible through the Levitical priesthood - for on that basis the people received the law - what further need would there have been for another priest to arise, said to be in the order of Melchizedek and not in Aaron's order?

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:12 - For when the priesthood changes, a change in the law must come as well.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:13 - Yet the one these things are spoken about belongs to a different tribe, and no one from that tribe has ever officiated at the altar.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:14 - For it is clear that our Lord is descended from Judah, yet Moses said nothing about priests in connection with that tribe.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:16 - who has become a priest not by a legal regulation about physical descent but by the power of an indestructible life.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:17 - For here is the testimony about him: "You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek."

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:18 - On the one hand a former command is set aside because it is weak and useless,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:19 - for the law made nothing perfect. On the other hand a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:20 - And since this was not done without a sworn affirmation - for the others have become priests without a sworn affirmation,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:21 - but Jesus did so with a sworn affirmation by 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 - accordingly Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:23 - And the others who became priests were numerous, because death prevented them from continuing in office,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:24 - but he holds his priesthood permanently since he lives forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:25 - So he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:27 - He has no need to do every day what those priests do, to offer sacrifices first for their own sins and then for the sins of the people, since he did this in offering himself once for all.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:28 - For the law appoints as high priests men subject to weakness, but the word of solemn affirmation that came after the law appoints a son made perfect forever.
