  • 13 Then one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew, who was living by the oaks of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and of Aner. These were allies of Abram.
    14 When Abram heard that his kinsman had been taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his house, 318 of them, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.
    15 And he divided his forces against them by night, he and his servants, and defeated them and pursued them to Hobah, north of Damascus.
    16 Then he brought back all the possessions, and also brought back his kinsman Lot with his possessions, and the women and the people.
    17 After his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King's Valley).
    18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.)
    19 And he blessed him and said, "Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth;
    20 and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!" And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
    21 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, "Give me the persons, but take the goods for yourself."
    22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, "I have lifted my hand to the LORD, God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth,
    23 that I would not take a thread or a sandal strap or anything that is yours, lest you should say, 'I have made Abram rich.'
    24 I will take nothing but what the young men have eaten, and the share of the men who went with me. Let Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre take their share."

    2020-01-20   Melchizedek king of Salem blesses Abram. Later on, Melchizedek is mentioned twice more in the Bible. He is mentioned again first in Psalms 110:4 where the Lord promises that David will be a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek, and then once more in Hebrews chapters 5-7 where he is discussed as a model of Jesus.

이해하기(Understanding)
Abram, while living in a tent by the oaks of Mamre, hears of the news that his nephew Lot was captured as a prisoner during the nearby battle. As soon as he hears this news, Abram takes 318 of his men and goes to join the allied forces of Mesopotamia. It was a miracle that a household of people who lived in tents was able to defeat the men of the strongest nations of that time. This was only possible because God was with them. Abram thus brought back Lot and his possessions, in addition to bringing back the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and their people and possessions (v. 13-16). Melchizedek the king of Salem (Jerusalem) witnessed all this and blessed Abram. In response, Abram gave a tenth of everything as an offering to Melchizedek. On the other hand, the king of Sodom whom Abram saved, was dismissive of Abram and told Abram that he could take the possessions for himself but had to give back the people. To this, Abram replied that the king of Sodom could take back both the people and the possessions as it was not his victory but the Lord’s (v. 17-24).
