Genesis 14:18

14:18. But Melchisedek, the king of Salem, bringing forth bread and wine, for he was the priest of the most high God,
14:19. Blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram by the most high God, who created Heaven and earth.
14:20. Blessed be the most high God, by Whose protection, the enemies are in thy hands. And he gave him the tithes of all.
14:21. The king of Sodom said to Abram: Give me the persons, and the rest take to thyself.
14:22. He answered him: I lift up my hand to the Lord God the Most High, the possessor of Heaven and earth,
14:23. That from the very woof thread unto the shoe latchet, I will not take of any things that are yours, lest you say: I have enriched Abram.
14:24. Except such things as the young men have eaten, and the shares of the men that came with me, Aner, Escol, and Mambre: these shall take their shares.

Psalm 109:4 (110:4)

109:4. The Lord has sworn, and He will not repent: "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek."

Hebrews 5:6, 5:10

5:6. As he said also in another place: You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchisedech.
5:10. Called by God a high priest, according to the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 6:20

Hebrews 7:1 - 7:10 - 7:11 - 7:15 - 7:17 - 7:21

7:1. For this Melchizedech was king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him:
7:10. For he was yet in the loins of his father when Melchizedech met him.
7:11. If then perfection was by the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedech: and not be called according to the order of Aaron?
7:15. It is yet far more evident: if according to the similitude of Melchizedech there arises another priest,
7:17. For he testified: You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedech.
7:21. But this with an oath, by him that said unto him: The Lord has sworn and he will not repent: You are a priest forever).
