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]

Μελχισεδέκ: οὗτος βασιλεὺς ὢν τῶν Χαναναίων καὶ ἱερεὺς τοῦ ὑψίστου θεοῦ ὑποστρέφοντι τῷ Ἀβραὰμ ἐκ τοῦ πολέμου ἀπαντήσας ἐξήγαγεν αὐτῷ ἄρτους καὶ οἶνον καὶ εἶπε πρὸς Ἀβραάμ: εὐλογημένος Ἀβραὰμ τῷ θεῷ τῷ ὑψίστῳ, ὃς ἔκτισε τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν: καὶ εὐλογημένος ὁ θεὸς ὁ ὕψιστος, ὃς παρέδωκε τοὺς ἐχθρούς σου ὑποχειρίους σοι. καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ Ἀβραὰμ δεκάτην ἀπὸ πάντων. ἑρμηνεύεται δὲ Μελχισεδὲκ βασιλεὺς εἰρήνης.
