Hebrews 7 - AMP

2 And Abraham gave to him a tenth portion of all . He is primarily, as his name when translated indicates, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, which means king of peace. 3 Without father or mother or ancestral line, neither with beginning of days nor ending of life, but, resembling the Son of God, he continues to be a priest without interruption and without successor. 4 Now observe and consider how great this was to whom even Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of the spoils. 5 And it is true that those descendants of Levi who are charged with the priestly office are commanded in the Law to take tithes from the people--which means, from their brethren--though these have descended from Abraham. 6 But this person who has not their Levitical ancestry received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who possessed the promises . 7 Yet it is beyond all contradiction that it is the lesser person who is blessed by the greater one. 8 Furthermore, here tithes are received by men who are subject to death; while there , they are received by one of whom it is testified that he lives . 9 A person might even say that Levi himself, who received tithes (the tenth), paid tithes through Abraham, 10 For he was still in the loins of his forefather when Melchizedek met him . 11 Now if perfection (a perfect fellowship between God and the worshiper) had been attainable by the Levitical priesthood--for under it the people were given the Law--why was it further necessary that there should arise another and different kind of Priest, one after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one appointed after the order and rank of Aaron? 12 For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is of necessity an alteration of the law as well. 13 For the One of Whom these things are said belonged to another tribe, no member of which has officiated at the altar. 14 For it is obvious that our Lord sprang from the tribe of Judah, and Moses mentioned nothing about priests in connection with that tribe. 15 And this becomes more plainly evident when another Priest arises Who bears the likeness of Melchizedek, 16 Who has been constituted a Priest, not on the basis of a bodily legal requirement , but on the basis of the power of an endless and indestructible Life. 17 For it is witnessed of Him, You are a Priest forever after the order (with the rank) of Melchizedek. 18 So a previous physical regulation and command is cancelled because of its weakness and ineffectiveness and uselessness-- 19 For the Law never made anything perfect--but instead a better hope is introduced through which we come close to God. 20 And it was not without the taking of an oath , 21 For those who formerly became priests received their office without its being confirmed by the taking of an oath by God, but this One was designated and addressed and saluted with an oath, The Lord has sworn and will not regret it or change His mind, You are a Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. 22 In keeping with , Jesus has become the Guarantee of a better (stronger) agreement . 23 was made up of many, because they were each prevented by death from continuing ; 24 But He holds His priesthood unchangeably, because He lives on forever. 25 Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them. 26 the High Priest to our needs, as was fitting--holy, blameless, unstained by sin, separated from sinners, and exalted higher than the heavens. 27 He has no day by day necessity, as high priests, to offer sacrifice first of all for his own sins and then for those of the people, because He once for all when He brought Himself which He offered up. 28 For the Law sets up men in their weakness as high priests, but the word of oath, which after the institution of the Law, , a Son Who has been made perfect forever.
