Hebrews 7:11-17

Rotherham(i) 11 If indeed, therefore, there had been, a perfecting through means of the Levitical priesthood,—for, the people, thereon, have had based a code of laws, what further need, according to the rank of Melchizedek, for a different priest to be raised up, and, not according to the rank of Aaron, to be designated? 12 For, seeing there is to be a change of the priesthood, of necessity, of law too, a change cometh. 13 For, he as to whom these things are said, with a different tribe, hath taken partnership, from which, no one, hath given attendance at the altar; 14 For it is, very evident, that out of Judah hath sprung our Lord,—respecting which tribe, concerning priests, nothing did Moses speak, 15 And, yet more abundantly evident it is—that, according to the likeness of Melchizedek, there is to be raised up, a different priest. 16 Who, not according to a law of commandment dealing with the flesh, hath arisen, but according to the power of an indissoluble life; 17 For it is witnessed—Thou, art a priest, age-abidingly, according to the rank of Melchizedek.
