Hebrews 7:10
Context
Melchizedek and Abraham

1For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; 2To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; 3Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like to the Son of God; stays a priest continually. 4Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. 5And truly they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brothers, though they come out of the loins of Abraham: 6But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises. 7And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better. 8And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives. 9And as I may so say, Levi also, who receives tithes, paid tithes in Abraham. 10For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.
