1For this Melchizedek--King of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham and blessed him as he returned from defeating the kings,

2and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything; first, his name means "king of righteousness," then also, "king of Salem," meaning "king of peace";

3without father, mother, or genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God--remains a priest forever.

4Now consider how great this man was, to whom even Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of the plunder!

5The sons of Levi who receive the priestly office have a commandment according to the law to collect a tenth from the people--that is, from their brothers--though they have also descended from Abraham.

6But one without this lineage collected tithes from Abraham and blessed the one who had the promises.

7Without a doubt, the inferior is blessed by the superior.

8In the one case, men who will die receive tithes; but in the other case, Scripture testifies that he lives.

9And in a sense Levi himself, who receives tithes, has paid tithes through Abraham,

10for he was still within his forefather when Melchizedek met him.

11If, then, perfection came through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there for another priest to arise in the order of Melchizedek, and not to be described as being in the order of Aaron?

12For when there is a change of the priesthood, there must be a change of law as well.

13For the One about whom these things are said belonged to a different tribe, from which no one has served at the altar.

14Now it is evident that our Lord came from Judah, and about that tribe Moses said nothing concerning priests.

15And this becomes clearer if another priest like Melchizedek arises,

16who doesn't become a priest based on a legal command concerning physical descent but based on the power of an indestructible life.

17For it has been testified: You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.

18So the previous commandment is annulled because it was weak and unprofitable

19(for the law perfected nothing), but a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.

20None of this happened without an oath. For others became priests without an oath,

21but He with an oath made by the One who said to Him: The Lord has sworn, and He will not change His mind, You are a priest forever.

22So Jesus has also become the guarantee of a better covenant.

23Now many have become Levitical priests, since they are prevented by death from remaining in office.

24But because He remains forever, He holds His priesthood permanently.

25Therefore He is always able to save those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede for them.

26For this is the kind of high priest we need: holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.

27He doesn't need to offer sacrifices every day, as high priests do--first for their own sins, then for those of the people. He did this once for all when He offered Himself.

28For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak, but the promise of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son, who has been perfected forever.
