Melchizedek, priest of God Most High + 25 February

Melchizedek meets Father Abraham

The king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley). And מלכי-צדק Melchizedek King of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was priest of God Most High. He blessed him and said,

‘Blessed be Abram by El Elyon
maker of heaven and earth;
and blessed be El Elyon,
who has delivered your enemies into your hand!’

And Abram gave him one-tenth of everything.

Psalm CX

YHWH said unto my Lord *
Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

YHWH shall send the rod of thy power out of Zion *
be thou ruler, even in the midst among thine enemies.

In the day of thy power shall the people offer thee free-will offerings with an holy worship *
the dew of thy birth is of the womb of the morning.

The Lord sware, and will not repent *
Thou art a Priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

The Lord upon thy right hand *
shall wound even kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall judge among the heathen; he shall fill the places with the dead bodies *
and smite in sunder the heads over divers countries.

He shall drink of the brook in the way *
therefore shall he lift up his head.
