Hebrews 7 (WEBP)

[1] For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of God Most High, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,
[2] to whom also Abraham divided a tenth part of all (being first, by interpretation, “king of righteousness”, and then also “king of Salem”, which means “king of peace”,
[3] without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God), remains a priest continually.
[4] Now consider how great this man was, to whom even Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth out of the best plunder.
[5] They indeed of the sons of Levi who receive the priest’s office have a commandment to take tithes from the people according to the law, that is, of their brothers, though these have come out of the body of Abraham,
[6] but he whose genealogy is not counted from them has accepted tithes from Abraham, and has blessed him who has the promises.
[7] But without any dispute the lesser is blessed by the greater.
[8] Here people who die receive tithes, but there one receives tithes of whom it is testified that he lives.
[9] We can say that through Abraham even Levi, who receives tithes, has paid tithes,
[10] for he was yet in the body of his father when Melchizedek met him.
[11] Now if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people have received the law), what further need was there for another priest to arise after the order of Melchizedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
[12] For the priesthood being changed, there is of necessity a change made also in the law.
[13] For he of whom these things are said belongs to another tribe, from which no one has officiated at the altar.
[14] For it is evident that our Lord has sprung out of Judah, about which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.
[15] This is yet more abundantly evident, if after the likeness of Melchizedek there arises another priest,
[16] who has been made, not after the law of a fleshly commandment, but after the power of an endless life;
[17] for it is testified, “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”
[18] For there is an annulling of a foregoing commandment because of its weakness and uselessness
[19] (for the law made nothing perfect), and a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
[20] Inasmuch as he was not made priest without the taking of an oath
[21] (for they indeed have been made priests without an oath), but he with an oath by him that says of him, “The Lord swore and will not change his mind, ‘You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.’ ”
[22] By so much, Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.
[23] Many, indeed, have been made priests, because they are hindered from continuing by death.
[24] But he, because he lives forever, has his priesthood unchangeable.
[25] Therefore he is also able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, seeing that he lives forever to make intercession for them.
[26] For such a high priest was fitting for us: holy, guiltless, undefiled, separated from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
[27] who doesn’t need, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices daily, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. For he did this once for all, when he offered up himself.
[28] For the law appoints men as high priests who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son forever who has been perfected.

Hebrews 7 (KJVS)

[1] For G1063 this G3778 Melchisedec G3198, king G935 of Salem G4532, priest G2409 of the most high G5310 God G2316, who G3588 met G4876 (AorActPtc) Abraham G11 returning G5290 (PresActPtc) from G575 the slaughter G2871 of the kings G935, and G2532 blessed G2127 (AorActPtc) him G846;
[2] To whom G3739 also G2532 Abraham G11 gave G3307 (AorActInd) a tenth part G1181 of G575 all G3956; first G4412 G3303 being by interpretation G2059 (PresPasPtc) King G935 of righteousness G1343, and G1161 after that G1899 also G2532 King G935 of Salem G4532, which is G3603 (PresInd), King G935 of peace G1515;
[3] Without father G540, without mother G282, without descent G35, having G2192 (PresActPtc) neither G3383 beginning G746 of days G2250, nor G3383 end G5056 of life G2222; but G1161 made like G871 (PerfPasPtc) unto the Son G5207 of God G2316; abideth G3306 (PresActInd) a priest G2409 continually G1519 G1336.
[4] Now G1161 consider G2334 (PresActInd) how great G4080 this man G3778 [was], unto whom G3739 even G2532 the patriarch G3966 Abraham G11 gave G1325 (AorActInd) the tenth G1181 of G1537 the spoils G205.
[5] And G2532 verily G3303 they that are of G1537 the sons G5207 of Levi G3017, who G3588 receive G2983 (PresActPtc) the office of the priesthood G2405, have G2192 (PresActInd) a commandment G1785 to take tithes G586 (PresActInf) of the people G2992 according to G2596 the law G3551, that is G5123 (PresInd), of their G846 brethren G80, though G2539 they come G1831 (PerfActPtc) out of G1537 the loins G3751 of Abraham G11:
[6] But G1161 he whose descent is G1075 not G3361 counted G1075 (PresPasPtc) from G1537 them G846 received tithes G1183 (PerfActInd) of Abraham G11, and G2532 blessed G2127 (PerfActInd) him that had G2192 (PresActPtc) the promises G1860.
[7] And G1161 without G5565 all G3956 contradiction G485 the less G1640 is blessed G2127 (PresPasInd) of G5259 the better G2909.
[8] And G2532 here G5602 G3303 men G444 that die G599 (PresActPtc) receive G2983 (PresActInd) tithes G1181; but G1161 there G1563 he [receiveth them], of whom it is witnessed G3140 (PresPasPtc) that G3754 he liveth G2198 (PresActInd).
[9] And G2532 as G5613 I may so say G2031 G2036 (Aor2ActInf), Levi G3017 also G2532, who G3588 receiveth G2983 (PresActPtc) tithes G1181, payed tithes G1183 (PerfPasInd) in G1223 Abraham G11.
[10] For G1063 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) yet G2089 in G1722 the loins G3751 of his father G3962, when G3753 Melchisedec G3198 met G4876 (AorActInd) him G846.
[11] If G1487 G3303 therefore G3767 perfection G5050 were G2258 (ImpfInd) by G1223 the Levitical G3020 priesthood G2420, (for G1063 under G1909 it G846 the people G2992 received the law G3549 (PlupfPasInd),) what G5101 further G2089 need G5532 [was there] that another G2087 priest G2409 should rise G450 (PresMidInf) after G2596 the order G5010 of Melchisedec G3198, and G2532 not G3756 be called G3004 (PresPasInf) after G2596 the order G5010 of Aaron G2?
[12] For G1063 the priesthood G2420 being changed G3346 (PresPasPtc), there is made G1096 (PresMidPasDepInd) of G1537 necessity G318 a change G3331 also G2532 of the law G3551.
[13] For G1063 he of G1909 whom G3739 these things G5023 are spoken G3004 (PresPasInd) pertaineth G3348 (PerfActInd) to another G2087 tribe G5443, of G575 which G3739 no man G3762 gave attendance G4337 (PerfActInd) at the altar G2379.
[14] For G1063 [it is] evident G4271 that G3754 our G2257 Lord G2962 sprang G393 (PerfActInd) out of G1537 Juda G2455; of G1519 which G3739 tribe G5443 Moses G3475 spake G2980 (AorActInd) nothing G3762 concerning G4012 priesthood G2420.
[15] And G2532 it is G2076 (PresInd) yet G2089 far more G4054 evident G2612: for G1487 that after G2596 the similitude G3665 of Melchisedec G3198 there ariseth G450 (PresMidInd) another G2087 priest G2409,
[16] Who G3739 is made G1096 (Perf2ActInd), not G3756 after G2596 the law G3551 of a carnal G4559 commandment G1785, but G235 after G2596 the power G1411 of an endless G179 life G2222.
[17] For G1063 he testifieth G3140 (PresActInd), G3754 Thou G4771 [art] a priest G2409 for G1519 ever G165 after G2596 the order G5010 of Melchisedec G3198.
[18] For G1063 there is G1096 (PresMidPasDepInd) verily G3303 a disannulling G115 of the commandment G1785 going before G4254 (PresActPtc) for G1223 the weakness G772 and G2532 unprofitableness G512 thereof G846.
[19] For G1063 the law G3551 made G5048 nothing G3762 perfect G5048 (AorActInd), but G1161 the bringing in G1898 of a better G2909 hope G1680 [did]; by G1223 the which G3739 we draw nigh G1448 (PresActInd) unto God G2316.
[20] And G2532 inasmuch as G2596 G3745 not G3756 without G5565 an oath G3728 [he was made priest]:
[21] (For G1063 those priests G2409 were G3303 G1526 (PresInd) made G1096 (Perf2ActPtc) without G5565 an oath G3728; but G1161 this with G3326 an oath G3728 by G1223 him that said G3004 (PresActPtc) unto G4314 him G846, The Lord G2962 sware G3660 (AorActInd) and G2532 will G3338 not G3756 repent G3338 (FutPasDepInd), Thou G4771 [art] a priest G2409 for G1519 ever G165 after G2596 the order G5010 of Melchisedec G3198:)
[22] By G2596 so much G5118 was G1096 Jesus G2424 made G1096 (Perf2ActInd) a surety G1450 of a better G2909 testament G1242.
[23] And G2532 they G1526 truly G3303 were G1526 (PresInd) G1096 (Perf2ActPtc) many G4119 priests G2409, because they were not suffered G2967 (PresPasInf) to continue G3887 (PresActInf) by reason of G1223 death G2288:
[24] But G1161 this [man], because G1223 he G846 continueth G3306 (PresActInf) ever G1519 G165, hath G2192 (PresActInd) an unchangeable G531 priesthood G2420.
[25] Wherefore G3606 he is able G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) also G2532 to save them G4982 (PresActInf) to G1519 the uttermost G3838 that come G4334 (PresMidPasDepPtc) unto God G2316 by G1223 him G846, seeing he ever G3842 liveth G2198 (PresActPtc) to G1519 make intercession G1793 (PresActInf) for G5228 them G846.
[26] For G1063 such G5108 an high priest G749 became G4241 (ImpfActInd) us G2254, [who is] holy G3741, harmless G172, undefiled G283, separate G5563 (PerfPasPtc) from G575 sinners G268, and G2532 made G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) higher than G5308 the heavens G3772;
[27] Who G3739 needeth G2192 (PresActInd) G318 not G3756 daily G2596 G2250, as G5618 those high priests G749, to offer up G399 (PresActInf) sacrifice G2378, first G4386 for G5228 his own G2398 sins G266, and then G1899 for the people’s G2992: for G1063 this G5124 he did G4160 (AorActInd) once G2178, when he offered up G399 (AorActPtc) himself G1438.
[28] For G1063 the law G3551 maketh G2525 (PresActInd) men G444 high priests G749 which have G2192 (PresActPtc) infirmity G769; but G1161 the word G3056 of the oath G3728, which G3588 was since G3326 the law G3551, [maketh] the Son G5207, who is consecrated G5048 (PerfPasPtc) for G1519 evermore G165.

Young’s Literal Translation

Hebrews 7 (YLT)

[1] For this Melchisedek, king of Salem, priest of God Most High, who did meet Abraham turning back from the smiting of the kings, and did bless him,
[2] to whom also a tenth of all did Abraham divide, (first, indeed, being interpreted, ‘King of righteousness,’ and then also, King of Salem, which is, King of Peace,)
[3] without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, and being made like to the Son of God, doth remain a priest continually.
[4] And see how great this one is, to whom also a tenth Abraham the patriarch did give out of the best of the spoils,
[5] and those, indeed, out of the sons of Levi receiving the priesthood, a command have to take tithes from the people according to the law, that is, their brethren, even though they came forth out of the loins of Abraham;
[6] and he who was not reckoned by genealogy of them, received tithes from Abraham, and him having the promises he hath blessed,
[7] and apart from all controversy, the less by the better is blessed-
[8] and here, indeed, men who die do receive tithes, and there he, who is testified to that he was living,
[9] and so to speak, through Abraham even Levi who is receiving tithes, hath paid tithes,
[10] for he was yet in the loins of the father when Melchisedek met him.
[11] If indeed, then, perfection were through the Levitical priesthood-for the people under it had received law-what further need, according to the order of Melchisedek, for another priest to arise, and not to be called according to the order of Aaron?
[12] for the priesthood being changed, of necessity also, of the law a change doth come,
[13] for he of whom these things are said in another tribe hath had part, of whom no one gave attendance at the altar,
[14] for it is evident that out of Judah hath arisen our Lord, in regard to which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
[15] And it is yet more abundantly most evident, if according to the similitude of Melchisedek there doth arise another priest,
[16] who came not according to the law of a fleshly command, but according to the power of an endless life,
[17] for He doth testify-‘Thou art a priest-to the age, according to the order of Melchisedek;’
[18] for a disannulling indeed doth come of the command going before because of its weakness, and unprofitableness,
[19] (for nothing did the law perfect) and the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw nigh to God.
[20] And inasmuch as it is not apart from oath, (for those indeed apart from oath are become priests,
[21] and he with an oath through Him who is saying unto him, ‘The Lord sware, and will not repent, Thou art a priest-to the age, according to the order of Melchisedek;’)
[22] by so much of a better covenant hath Jesus become surety,
[23] and those indeed are many who have become priests, because by death they are hindered from remaining;
[24] and he, because of his remaining-to the age, hath the priesthood not transient,
[25] whence also he is able to save to the very end, those coming through him unto God-ever living to make intercession for them.
[26] For such a chief priest did become us-kind, harmless, undefiled, separate from the sinners, and become higher than the heavens,
[27] who hath no necessity daily, as the chief priests, first for his own sins to offer up sacrifice, then for those of the people; for this he did once, having offered up himself;
[28] for the law doth appoint men chief priests, having infirmity, but the word of the oath that is after the law appointeth the Son-to the age having been perfected.
