1 G3778 For this G1063 G3588 G* Melchisedek, G935 king G* of Salem, G2409 priest G3588 G2316 of God G3588 the G5310 highest, G3588 the one G4876 having met with G* Abraham G5290 returning G575 from G3588 the G2871 slaughter G3588 of the G935 kings, G2532 and G2127 having blessed G1473 him,
2 G3739 to whom G2532 also G1181 [3a tenth G575 4of G3956 5all G3307 2portioned G* 1Abraham], G4412 first G3303 indeed G2059 being translated G935 king G1343 of righteousness, G1899 and thereupon G1161 G2532 also G935 king G* of Salem, G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G935 king G1515 of peace;
3 G540 fatherless, G282 motherless, G35 of unknown genealogy, G3383 neither G746 beginning G2250 of days, G3383 nor G2222 [3of life G5056 2an end G2192 1having], G871 and taking an exact image G1161 G3588 to the G5207 son G3588 G2316 of God, G3306 abides G2409 a priest G1519 for G3588 G1336 perpetuity.
4 G2334 And view G1161 G4080 how great G3778 this one was, G3739 to whom G2532 [5even G1181 6a tenth G* 1Abraham G1325 4gave G1537 7of G3588 8the G205 9choice parts G3588 2the G3966 3patriarch].
5 G2532 And G3588 indeed the ones G3303 G1537 of G3588 the G5207 sons G* of Levi, G3588 [2the G2405 3priesthood G2983 1receiving], G1785 [2a commandment G2192 1have] G586 to tithe G3588 the G2992 people G2596 according to G3588 the G3551 law, G5123 that is to say, G3588 the ones G80 of their brethren, G1473 G2539 though G1831 they are ones having come forth G1537 from out of G3588 the G3751 loin G* of Abraham.
6 G3588 But the one G1161 G3361 not G1075 tracing descent G1537 from G1473 them G1183 received a tenth G3588 from G* Abraham, G2532 and G3588 [2the one G2192 3having G3588 4the G1860 5promises G2127 1has blessed].
7 G5565 But separate from G1161 G3956 all G485 dispute, G3588 the G1640 lesser G5259 [2by G3588 3the G2908 4better G2127 1is blessed].
8 G2532 And G5602 here G3303 indeed G1181 [4tenths G599 2die G444 1men G2983 3 who receive], G1563 but there G1161 G3140 receives one witnessed of G3754 that G2198 he lives.
9 G2532 And, G5613 as G2031 literally G2036 to speak, G1223 through G* Abraham G2532 even G* Levi G3588 the one G1181 [2tenths G2983 1receiving] G1183 pays a tenth.
10 G2089 [3still G1063 1For G1722 4in G3588 5the G3751 6loin G3588 7of the G3962 8father G1510.7.3 2he was] G3753 when G4876 [2met with G1473 3him G3588 G* 1Melchisedek].
11 G1487 If G3303 indeed G3767 then G5050 perfection G1223 [2through G3588 3the G* 4Levitical G2420 5priesthood G1510.7.3 1 were] G3588 ( [2the G2992 3people G1063 1for G1909 5upon G1473 6it G3549 4established law],) G5100 what G2089 still G5532 need G2596 was there [4according to G3588 5the G5010 6order G* 7of Melchisedek G2087 1for another G450 3to arise G2409 2priest], G2532 and G3756 not G2596 [2according to G3588 3the G5010 4order G* 5of Aaron G3004 1to be named]?
12 G3346 [4being transposed G1063 1For G3588 2the G2420 3priesthood], G1537 from G318 necessity G2532 also G3551 [2of law G3331 1a transposition] G1096 takes place.
13 G1909 For of whom G3739 G1063 G3004 are said G3778 these things, G5443 [3tribe G2087 2of another G3348 1partakes], G575 from G3739 which G3762 no one G4337 has given attention G3588 to the G2379 altar.
14 G4271 For it is exposed to view G1063 G3754 that G1537 [3from out of G* 4Judah G393 2has risen G3588 G2962 1our Lord], G1473 G1519 for G3739 which G5443 tribe G3762 [3nothing G4012 4concerning G2420 5priesthood G* 1Moses G2980 2spoke].
15 G2532 And G4053 more extra G2089 still G2612 it is quite evident, G1510.2.3 G1487 since G2596 according to G3588 the G3665 likeness G* of Melchisedek G450 [3arises G2409 2priest G2087 1another],
16 G3739 who G3756 not G2596 according to G3551 the law G1785 [2commandment G4559 1of fleshly] G1096 exists, G235 but G2596 according to G1411 the power G2222 [2life G179 1of an indissoluble].
17 G3140 For he testifies, G1063 G3754 that, G1473 You G2409 are a priest G1519 into G3588 the G165 eon G2596 according to G3588 the G5010 order G* of Melchisedek.
18 G115 [3an annulment G3303 2indeed G1063 1For G1096 6takes place G4254 5before G1785 4of the commandment] G1223 because of G3588 G1473 its G772 weak G2532 and G512 unprofitable state;
19 G3762 [5nothing G1063 1for G5048 4perfected G3588 2the G3551 3law], G1898 but there is the further introduction G1161 G2908 of a better G1680 hope G1223 through G3739 which G1448 we approach G3588 G2316 to God.
20 G2532 And G2596 according to G3745 as much as G3756 not G5565 separate from G3728 the swearing of an oath
21 G3588 (for indeed the ones G3303 G1063 G5565 separate from G3728 swearing of an oath G1510.2.6 are G2409 [2priests G1096 1become], G3588 but the one G1161 G3326 with G3728 swearing of an oath G1223 through G3588 the G3004 saying G4314 as to G1473 him, G3660 The Lord swore by an oath, G2962 G2532 and G3756 will not G3338 repent; G1473 you G2409 are a priest G1519 into G3588 the G165 eon G2596 according to G3588 the G5010 order G* of Melchisedek,)
22 G2596 by G5118 so much G2908 of a better G1242 covenant G1096 [2has become G1450 3surety G* 1Jesus].
23 G2532 And G3588 G3303 indeed, G4183 there are more G1510.2.6 G1096 [2being G2409 1priests], G1223 on account of G3588 G2288 death G2967 restrained G3887 from remaining;
24 G3588 but he, G1161 G1223 because of G3588 G3306 his abiding G1473 G1519 into G3588 the G165 eon, G531 [3inviolable G2192 1has G3588 2the] G2420 priesthood.
25 G3606 From where G2532 [2even G4982 3to deliver G1519 4totally G3588 G3838 G1410 1he is able] G3588 the ones G4334 coming forward G1223 through G1473 him G3588 G2316 to God, G3842 at all times G2198 living G1519 to intercede G3588 G1793 G5228 for G1473 them.
26 G5108 For such G1063 G1473 [3us G4241 2becomes G749 1a chief priest] -- G3741 sacred, G172 guileless, G283 undefiled, G5563 being separated G575 from G3588 G268 sinners, G2532 and G5308 [2higher G3588 3than the G3772 4heavens G1096 1becoming];
27 G3739 who G3756 has not had G2192 G2596 a daily G2250 G318 necessity, G5618 as G3588 the G749 chief priests, G4387 prior G5228 [3for G3588 4their own G2398 G266 5sins G2378 2sacrifices G399 1to offer], G1899 and thereupon G3588 for the G3588 sins of the G2992 people; G3778 for this G1063 G4160 he did G2178 once for all, G1438 [2himself G399 1having offered].
28 G3588 [2the G3551 3law G1063 1For G444 5men G2525 4ordains] G749 chief priests, G2192 ones having G769 weakness; G3588 [2the G3056 3word G1161 1but] G3588 of the G3728 swearing of an oath G3588 which is G3326 after G3588 the G3551 law G5207 [2a son G1519 3into G3588 4the G165 5eon G5048 1has perfected].
