Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 7:8


7:8 And here - In the Levitical priesthood. But there - In the case of Melchisedec. He of whom it is testified that he liveth - Who is not spoken of as one that died for another to succeed him; but is represented only as living, no mention being made either of his birth or death.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 7:8


Heb 7:8 Here men that die receive tithes. The Aaronic priesthood die, and the death of the high priest is a matter of record. Their morality was a prominent feature, but in the case of Melchizedek, he [receiveth them], of whom it is witnessed that he liveth. He who receives tithes "liveth" right on as far as the records tell us. We behold him only as a living priest, typical of a priest who liveth forever.
