7 This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High.
He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him,
2 and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, his name
means “king of righteousness”; then also,
“king of Salem” means “king of peace.”
3 Without father or mother, without genealogy,
without beginning of days or end of life,
like the Son of God he remains
a priest forever.
