    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:9

    y, (por decir, así) en Abraham pag diezmos tambin el mismo Leví, que recibe los diezmos;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 7:9

    Verse 9. And as I may so say] kai wv epov eipein? And so to speak a word. This form of
    speech, which is very frequent among the purest Greek writers, is generally used to soften some harsh expression, or to limit the meaning when the proposition might otherwise appear to be too general. It answers fully to our so to speak-as one would say-I had almost said-in a certain sense. Many examples of its use by Aristotle, Philo, Lucian, Josephus, Demosthenes, AEschines, and Plutarch, may be seen in Raphelius and Kypke.

    Payed tithes in Abraham.] The Levites, who were descendants of Abraham, paid tithes to Melchisedec dia through, Abraham, their progenitor and representative.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. And as l may so say , etc..] With truth, and with great propriety and pertinence: Levi also who receiveth tithes ; or the Levites, who receive tithes according to the law of Moses from the people of Israel: paid tithes in Abraham ; that is, to Melchizedek; and therefore Melchizedek must be greater than they, and his priesthood a more excellent one than theirs; since they who receive tithes from others gave tithes to him.

    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.
