And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; now he was a priest of God Most High.
The LORD has sworn and will not change His mind, "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek."
...just as He says also in another passage, "YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
...being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
...where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham as he was returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,
...for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.
Now if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the people received the Law), what further need was there for another priest to arise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be designated according to the order of Aaron?
And this is clearer still, if another priest arises according to the likeness of Melchizedek...
For it is attested of Him, "YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
