Hebrews Chapter 7   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   4 Now consider how great this man [was], unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   6 But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   7 And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   8 And here men that die receive tithes; but there he [receiveth them], of whom it is witnessed that he liveth. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him. [jfb] [pnt]   11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need [was there] that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   14 For [it is] evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   17 For he testifieth, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. [jfb] [pnt]   18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope [did]; by the which we draw nigh unto God. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   20 And inasmuch as not without an oath [he was made priest]: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   26 For such an high priest became us, [who is] holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]   28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, [maketh] the Son, who is consecrated for evermore. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt]
