This man was a king of the Canaanites and priest of God the most high. He met Abraham, who was returning from war and brought bread and wine out for him, and said to Abraham: "Blessed be Abraham by God the most high, who made the heaven and the earth: and blessed be God the most high, who gave your enemies into your hand." And Abraham gave to him a tenth of everything.[1]
