Hebrews 7:2-3

Context
7:2 To him 1  also Abraham apportioned a tithe 2  of everything. 3  His name first means 4  king of righteousness, then king of Salem, that is, king of peace. 7:3 Without father, without mother, without genealogy, he has neither beginning of days nor end of life but is like the son of God, and he remains a priest for all time.

1 tn Grk “to whom,” continuing the description of Melchizedek. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

2 tn Or “a tenth part.”

3 sn A quotation from Gen 14:20.

4 tn Grk “first being interpreted,” describing Melchizedek.
