  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “However, as for Melchizedek, he is not, by contrast, a descendant of Levi. And in spite of that, he took the tenth part that Abraham gave him, and then as for Abraham, the one whom God had made promise to, Melchizedek blessed him.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)

  • Tagbanwa: “Well, as for this Melquisedec, he was not included in those descendants of Levi, but he was given a tenth part coming from Abraham.
