(Gen 14:17–20 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:1 - For this Melchisedek, king of Salem, priest of God Most High, who did meet Abraham turning back from the smiting of the kings, and did bless him,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:2 - to whom also a tenth of all did Abraham divide, (first, indeed, being interpreted, '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, and being made like to the Son of God, doth remain a priest continually.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:4 - And see how great this one is, to whom also a tenth Abraham the patriarch did give out of the best of the spoils,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:5 - and those, indeed, out of the sons of Levi receiving the priesthood, a command have to take tithes from the people according to the law, that is, their brethren, even though they came forth out of the loins of Abraham;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:6 - and he who was not reckoned by genealogy of them, received tithes from Abraham, and him having the promises he hath blessed,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:7 - and apart from all controversy, the less by the better is blessed --
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:8 - and here, indeed, men who die do receive tithes, and there he, who is testified to that he was living,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:9 - and so to speak, through Abraham even Levi who is receiving tithes, hath paid tithes,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:10 - for he was yet in the loins of the father when Melchisedek met him.
(Psa 110:4 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:11 - If indeed, then, perfection were through the Levitical priesthood -- for the people under it had received law -- what further need, according to the order of Melchisedek, for another priest to arise, and not to be called according to the order of Aaron?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:12 - for the priesthood being changed, of necessity also, of the law a change doth come,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:13 - for he of whom these things are said in another tribe hath had part, of whom no one gave attendance at the altar,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:14 - for it is evident that out of Judah hath arisen our Lord, in regard to which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:15 - And it is yet more abundantly most evident, if according to the similitude of Melchisedek there doth arise another priest,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:16 - who came not according to the law of a fleshly command, but according to the power of an endless life,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:17 - for He doth testify -- 'Thou art a priest -- to the age, according to the order of Melchisedek;'
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:18 - for a disannulling indeed doth come of the command going before because of its weakness, and unprofitableness,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:19 - (for nothing did the law perfect) and the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw nigh to God.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:20 - And inasmuch as it is not apart from oath, (for those indeed apart from oath are become priests,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:21 - and he with an oath through Him who is saying unto him, 'The Lord sware, and will not repent, Thou art a priest -- to the age, according to the order of Melchisedek;')
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:22 - by so much of a better covenant hath Jesus become surety,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:23 - and those indeed are many who have become priests, because by death they are hindered from remaining;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:24 - and he, because of his remaining -- to the age, hath the priesthood not transient,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:25 - whence also he is able to save to the very end, those coming through him unto God -- ever living to make intercession for them.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:26 - For such a chief priest did become us -- kind, harmless, undefiled, separate from the sinners, and become higher than the heavens,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:27 - who hath no necessity daily, as the chief priests, first for his own sins to offer up sacrifice, then for those of the people; for this he did once, having offered up himself;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 7:28 - for the law doth appoint men chief priests, having infirmity, but the word of the oath that is after the law appointeth the Son -- to the age having been perfected.
