اليوم التاسع للميلاد/كُلُّ ذَكَرٍ فَاتِحِ رَحِمٍ يُدْعَى مُقَدَّسًا لِلرَّبّ
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا02/من22حتى24/:”ولَمَّا تَمَّتْ أَيَّامُ تَطْهِير يُوسُفَ ومَريَمَ بِحَسَبِ تَورَاةِ مُوسَى، صَعِدَا بِهِ إِلى أُورَشَلِيمَ لِيُقَدِّماهُ للرَّبّ، كمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ في شَرِيعَةِ الرَّبّ: «كُلُّ ذَكَرٍ فَاتِحِ رَحِمٍ يُدْعَى مُقَدَّسًا لِلرَّبّ»، ولِكَي يُقدِّمَا ذَبِيحَة، كَمَا وَرَدَ في شَرِيعَةِ الرَّبّ: «زَوجَيْ يَمَام، أَو فَرْخَيْ حَمَام».

Every firstborn male shall be designated as holy to the Lord
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 02/22-24/:”When the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the law of the Lord, ‘Every firstborn male shall be designated as holy to the Lord’), and they offered a sacrifice according to what is stated in the law of the Lord, ‘a pair of turtle-doves or two young pigeons.”

مَلْكِيصَادِقَ مَلِكَ شَلِيم، كَاهِنُ اللهِ العَلِيّ، الَّذي خَرَجَ لِمُلاَقَاةِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وبَارَكَهُ وأَدَّى لَهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ العُشْرَ مِن كُلِّ شَيء
الرسالة إلى العبرانيّين07/من01حتى10/:”يا إخوَتِي، إِنَّ مَلْكِيصَادِقَ هذَا، مَلِكَ شَلِيم، هُوَ كَاهِنُ اللهِ العَلِيّ، الَّذي خَرَجَ لِمُلاَقَاةِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الرِّاجِعِ مِن بَعْدِ أَنْ هَزَمَ المُلُوك، وبَارَكَهُ. وأَدَّى لَهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ العُشْرَ مِن كُلِّ شَيء. وتَفْسِيرُ ٱسْمِهِ أَوَّلاً مَلِكُ البِرّ، ثُمَّ مَلِكُ شَلِيم أَيْ مَلِكُ السَّلام. ولَيْسَ لَهُ أَبٌ، ولا أُمٌّ، ولا نَسَبٌ، ولا بِدَايَةُ أَيَّام، ولا نِهَايَةُ حَيَاة، وقَدْ شُبِّهَ بِٱبْنِ الله، ويَبْقى كاهِنًا إِلى الأَبَد. فَٱنْظُرُوا ما أَعْظَمَ ذلِكَ الذي أَعْطاهُ إِبْراهِيمُ أَبُو الآبَاءِ العُشْرَ مِن خِيرَةِ غَنَائِمِهِ. فإِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَقْبَلُونَ الكَهَنُوتَ مِنْ بَنِي لاوِي، لَهُم وَصِيَّةٌ بِمُقْتَضَى الشَّرِيعَةِ أَنْ يَأْخُذُوا العُشْرَ مِنَ الشَّعْب، أَيْ مِن إِخْوَتِهِمِ الَّذِينَ هُم مِن صُلْبِ إِبْراهِيم. أَمَّا مَلْكِيصَادِق، الَّذي لَيْسَ لَهُ نَسَبٌ مِنْ بَنِي لاوِي، فَقَدْ أَخَذَ العُشْرَ مِن إِبْراهِيم، وبَارَكَ مَنْ كَانَتْ لَهُ الوُعُود! ومِمَّا لا خِلافَ فيهِ أَنَّ الأَصْغَرَ يَتَلَقَّى البَرَكَةَ مِنَ الأَكْبَر. ثُمَّ إِنَّ الذِينَ يَأْخُذُونَ العُشْرَ ههُنَا بَشَرٌ مائِتُون، أَمَّا هُنَاكَ فإِنَّهُ إِنْسَانٌ مَشْهُودٌ لَهُ بِأَنَّهُ حَيّ. وإِنْ صَحَّ القَوْل، فَإِنَّ لاوِي نَفْسَهُ، الَّذي يَأْخُذُ العُشُور، قَدْ أَعْطى العُشْرَ لِمَلْكِيصَادِقَ مِنْ خِلالِ إِبْرَاهِيم،لأَنَّهُ كانَ بَعْدُ في صُلْبِ إِبْراهِيمَ أَبِيه، يَومَ خَرَجَ مَلْكِيصَادِقُ لِمُلاقَاتِهِ.”

King Melchizedek of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham, blessed him and to him Abraham apportioned ‘one-tenth of everything
Letter to the Hebrews 07/01-10/:”This ‘King Melchizedek of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham as he was returning from defeating the kings and blessed him’; and to him Abraham apportioned ‘one-tenth of everything’. His name, in the first place, means ‘king of righteousness’; next he is also king of Salem, that is, ‘king of peace’. Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest for ever. See how great he is! Even Abraham the patriarch gave him a tenth of the spoils. And those descendants of Levi who receive the priestly office have a commandment in the law to collect tithes from the people, that is, from their kindred, though these also are descended from Abraham. But this man, who does not belong to their ancestry, collected tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had received the promises. It is beyond dispute that the inferior is blessed by the superior. In the one case, tithes are received by those who are mortal; in the other, by one of whom it is testified that he lives. One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, for he was still in the loins of his ancestor when Melchizedek met him.”
