…but he whose genealogy is not derived from them received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. Hebrews 7:6

The words, “but he” are speaking of Melchizedek. In order to show his greatness, he is being contrasted with Abraham – a figure known in history as the man of great faith, the father of the Hebrew nation, and the example of patience and perseverance in the face of testing.Read the rest

And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham; Hebrews 7:5

As is recorded in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, the author now explains that even though the tribe of Levi descended from Abraham, just as all the other tribes of Israel (their brethren), they were to receive a tenth of the produce of the land.Read the rest

Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils. Hebrews 7:4

The author now begins to explain the level of greatness of Melchizedek, something he will do for the next seven verses. The reason for this is because he will then show how the greatness of Melchizedek’s priesthood exceeded that of Aaron’s.Read the rest

…to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,” Hebrews 7:2

The words, “to whom,” are speaking of Melchizedek of the previous verse. It is he who blessed Abraham, and it was to him who “also Abraham gave a tenth part of all.” This is simply recorded history being repeated by the author of Hebrews.Read the rest
