SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:17 Â¶ Y salió el rey de Sodoma a recibirlo, cuando volvía de herir a Quedorlaomer y a los reyes que estaban con él, al valle de Save, que es el valle del Rey.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 14:17 Verse 17. The king of Sodom went out to meet him] This could not have been Bera, mentioned ver. 2, for it seems pretty evident, from ver. 10, that both he and Birsha, king of Gomorrah, were slain at the bitumen-pits in the vale of Siddim; but another person in the meantime might have succeeded to the government.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-20 - Melchizedek is spoken of as a king of Salem, supposed to be the plac afterwards called Jerusalem, and it is generally thought that he wa only a man. The words of the apostle, Heb 7:3, state only, that the sacred history has said nothing of his ancestors. The silence of the Scriptures on this, is to raise our thoughts to Him, whose generatio cannot be declared. Bread and wine were suitable refreshment for the weary followers of Abram; and it is remarkable that Christ appointe the same as the memorials of his body and blood, which are meat an drink indeed to the soul. Melchizedek blessed Abram from God. He blessed God from Abram. We ought to give thanks for other's mercies a for our own. Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, is the Mediator bot of our prayers and praises, and not only offers up ours, but his ow for us. Abram gave him the tenth of the spoils, Heb 7:4. When we have received some great mercy from God, it is very fit we should expres our thankfulness by some special act of pious charity. Jesus Christ our great Melchisedek, is to have homage done him, and to be humbl acknowledged as our King and Priest; not only the tithe of all, but all we have, must be given up to him.
