    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:8

    Del mismo modo, aquí ciertamente los hombres mortales toman los diezmos; mas allí, aquel los tom del cual est dado testimonio que vive;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 7:8

    Verse 8. Here
    men that die receive tithes] The apostle is speaking of the ecclesiastical constitution of the Jews, which was standing at the time this epistle was written. Under the Jewish dispensation, though the priests were successively removed by death, yet they were as duly replaced by others appointed from the same family, and the payment of tithes was never interrupted. But as there is no account of Melchisedec ceasing to be a priest, or of his dying, he is represented as still living, the better to point him out as a type of Christ, and to show his priesthood to be more excellent than that which was according to the law, as an unchanging priesthood must be more excellent than that which was continually changing.

    But there he receiveth them] The wde, here, in the first clause of this verse refers to Mosaical institutions, as then existing: the ekei, there, in this clause refers to the place in Genesis (Gen. xiv. 20) where it is related that Abraham gave tithes to Melchisedec, who is still considered as being alive or without a successor, because there is no account of his death, nor of any termination of his priesthood.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And here men that die receive tithes , etc.,] The priests and Levites were not only men, and mortal men, subject to death, but they did die, and so did not continue, by reason of death, ( Hebrews 7:24) but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth ; which is to be understood of Melchizedek; who is not opposed to men, as if he was not a man, nor to mortal men, but to men that die; nor is he said to be immortal, but to live: and this may respect the silence of the Scripture concerning him, which gives no account of his death; and may be interpreted of the perpetuity of his priesthood, and of his living in his antitype Christ; and the testimony concerning him is in ( <19B004> Psalm 110:4).

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. Here (wde). In the Levitical
    economy.

    Men that die receive tithes. The emphasis is on ajpoqnhskontev dying. The Levites are dying men, who pass away in due course, and are succeeded by others.

    But there (ekei de). In the case of Melchisedec.

    (He receiveth them of whom) it is witnessed that he liveth (marturoumenov oti zh). The Greek is very condensed: being attested that he liveth. The A.V. fills it out correctly. Melchisedec does not appear in Scripture as one who dies, and whose office passes to another. See on abideth continually, ver. 3.
