Abram Blessed by Melchizedek

17 After his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the (A)King's Valley). 18 And (B)Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was (C)priest of (D)God Most High.) 19 And he blessed him and said,

(E)“Blessed be Abram by God Most High,
    (F)Possessor[a] of heaven and earth;
20 and blessed be God Most High,
    who has delivered your enemies into your hand!”

And Abram gave him (G)a tenth of everything.
