Hebrews 7:3New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Without father, mother, or ancestry, without beginning of days or end of life,[a] thus made to resemble the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.

Footnotes:

  1. 7:3 Without father, mother, or ancestry, without beginning of days or end of life: this is perhaps a quotation from a hymn about Melchizedek. The rabbis maintained that anything not mentioned in the Torah does not exist. Consequently, since the Old Testament nowhere mentions Melchizedek’s ancestry, birth, or death, the conclusion can be drawn that he remains…forever.
