Hebrews 7:9
And, as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, paid tithes through Abraham,
And, so to say, through Abraham even Levi, who receiveth tithes, hath paid tithes;
A person might even say that Levi [the father of the priestly tribe] himself, who received tithes, paid tithes through Abraham [the father of all Israel and of all who believe],
A person might even say that Levi [the father of the priestly tribe] himself, who received tithes (the tenth), paid tithes through Abraham,
And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
It could be said that Levi, who received a tenth, paid a tenth through Abraham
One might go even further and say that Levi, who himself receives tenths, paid a tenth through Avraham;
Levi’s descendants are now the ones who receive a tenth from people. We could even say that when Abraham gave Melchizedek a tenth, Levi also gave him a tenth.
and, so to speak, through Abraham, Levi also, who received tithes, has been made to pay tithes.
And so to speak, through Abraham even Levi, the one receiving the tenths, has paid-a-tenth.
And (as it may be said) even Levi who received tithes, paid tithes in Abraham:
Now those from the family of Levi are the ones who get a tenth from the people. But we can say that when Abraham paid Melchizedek a tenth, then Levi also paid it.
One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham,
One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham,
We might even say that Levi, who receives a ·tenth [tithe], also paid it when Abraham paid Melchizedek a tenth.
And to say as the thing is, Levi also which receiveth tithes, payeth tithes in Abraham.
We could even say that when Abraham gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything, Levi was giving a tenth of everything. Levi gave, although later his descendants would receive a tenth of everything.
And, so to speak, when Abraham paid the tenth, Levi (whose descendants collect the tenth) also paid it.
And in a sense Levi himself, who receives tenths, has paid tenths through Abraham,
It is Levi who gets a tenth from the people. But we might even say that when Abraham paid Melchizedek a tenth, then Levi also paid it.
One might even say that Levi, who collects the tenth, paid the tenth through Abraham,
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.
And as I may so say, Levi also, who received tithes, paid tithes in Abraham.
And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
And, so to speak, even Levi, the one who receives tithes, has paid tithes through Abraham.
(d) One might even say that Levi himself (the ancestor of all Jewish priests, of all who receive tithes), paid tithes to Melchizedek through Abraham.
Or look at it this way: We pay our tithes to priests who die, but Abraham paid tithes to a priest who, the Scripture says, “lives.” Ultimately you could even say that since Levi descended from Abraham, who paid tithes to Melchizedek, when we pay tithes to the priestly tribe of Levi they end up with Melchizedek.
One might say that Levi also, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham,
And it could be said that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, ·

One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham,
