    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:4

    Mirad, pues, cun grande sea ste, al cual aun Abraham el patriarca haya dado la dcima parte de los despojos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 7:4

    Verse 4. Consider how great this man was] There is something exceedingly mysterious in the person and character of this king of
    Salem; and to find out the whole is impossible. He seems to have been a sort of universal priest, having none superior to him in all that region; and confessedly superior even to Abraham himself, the father of the faithful, and the source of the Jewish race. See ver. 7.

    The patriarch Abraham] o patriarchv? Either from pathr, a father, and arch, a chief or head; or from patriav arch, the head of a family.' But the title is here applied, by way of eminence, to him who was the head or chief of all the fathers - or patriarch of the patriarchs, and father of the faithful. The Syriac translates it (Syriac) Rish Abahatha, "head of the fathers." The character and conduct of Abraham place him, as a man, deservedly at the head of the human race.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Now consider how great this man was , etc..] Melchizedek, of whom so many great and wonderful things are said in the preceding verses: and as follows, unto whom the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils ; of Abraham's giving tithes to him, (see Gill on Hebrews 7:2) and Melchizedek's greatness is aggravated, not only from this act of Abraham's, but from Abraham's being a patriarch, who did it; he was the patriarch of patriarchs, as the sons of Jacob are called, ( Acts 7:8,9) he is the patriarch of the whole Jewish nation, and of many nations, and of all believers, the friend of God, and heir of the world; how great then must Melchizedek be, to whom he paid tithes? and how much greater must Christ, the antitype of Melchizedek, be?

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 4-10 - That
    High Priest who should afterward appear, of whom Melchizedec was type, must be much superior to the Levitical priests. Observe Abraham' great dignity and happiness; that he had the promises. That man is ric and happy indeed, who has the promises, both of the life that now is and of that which is to come. This honour have all those who receiv the Lord Jesus. Let us go forth in our spiritual conflicts, trusting in his word and strength, ascribing our victories to his grace, an desiring to be met and blessed by him in all our ways.
