Hebrews 7:4
Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils.
Now consider how great this man was, unto whom Abraham, the patriarch, gave a tenth out of the chief spoils.
Now observe and consider how great [a personage] this was to whom even Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth [the topmost or the pick of the heap] of the spoils.
Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
See how great Melchizedek was! Abraham, the father of the people, gave him a tenth of everything he captured.
Just think how great he was! Even the Patriarch Avraham gave him a tenth of the choicest spoils.

Now consider how great this [personage] was, to whom [even] the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth out of the spoils.
Now observe how great this one is to whom indeed Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth from the choicest-spoils:
Now consider how great this man is, to whom also Abraham the patriarch gave tithes out of the principal things.
You can see that Melchizedek was very great. Abraham, our great ancestor, gave him a tenth of everything he won in battle.
See how great this man was to whom Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of the spoils!

Just look at how great this man was! Even Abraham—the patriarch himself—gave him a tenth of what he had captured!
Now notice the greatness of this man. Even Abraham the patriarch pays him a tribute of a tenth part of the spoils. Further, we know that, according to the Law, the descendants of Levi who accept the office of priest have the right to demand a “tenth” from the people, that is from their brothers, despite the fact that the latter are descendants of Abraham. But here we have one who is quite independent of Levitic ancestry taking a “tenth” from Abraham, and giving a blessing to Abraham, the holder of God’s promises! And no one can deny that the receiver of a blessing is inferior to the one who gives it. Again, in the one case it is mortal men who receive the “tenths”, and in the other is one who, we are assured, is alive. One might say that even Levi, the proper receiver of “tenths”, has paid his tenth to this man, for in a sense he already existed in the body of his father Abraham when Melchizedek met him.

See then how great this Melchizedek is: (a) Even Abraham, the first and most honored of all God’s chosen people, gave Melchizedek a tenth of the spoils he took from the kings he had been fighting.
You realize just how great Melchizedek is when you see that Father Abraham gave him a tenth of the captured treasure. Priests descended from Levi are commanded by law to collect tithes from the people, even though they are all more or less equals, priests and people, having a common father in Abraham. But this man, a complete outsider, collected tithes from Abraham and blessed him, the one to whom the promises had been given. In acts of blessing, the lesser is blessed by the greater.
