    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:20

    y bendito sea el Dios alto, que entregó tus enemigos en tu mano. Y Abram le dio los diezmos de todo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 14:20

    Verse 20. And he gave him
    tithes] A tenth part of all the spoils he had taken from the confederate kings. These Abram gave as a tribute to the most high God, who, being the possessor of heaven and earth, dispenses all spiritual and temporal favours, and demands the gratitude, and submissive, loving obedience, of all his subjects. Almost all nations of the earth have agreed in giving a tenth part of their property to be employed in religious uses. The tithes were afterwards granted to the Levites for the use of the sanctuary, and the maintenance of themselves and their families, as they had no other inheritance in Israel.

    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.
