Read Hebrews 7:9 Using Other Translations

And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham,
In addition, we might even say that these Levites—the ones who collect the tithe—paid a tithe to Melchizedek when their ancestor Abraham paid a tithe to him.

What does Hebrews 7:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Hebrews 7:9

And as l may so say
With truth, and with great propriety and pertinence:

Levi also who receiveth tithes;
or the Levites, who receive tithes according to the law of Moses from the people of Israel:

paid tithes in Abraham;
that is, to Melchizedek; and therefore Melchizedek must be greater than they, and his priesthood a more excellent one than theirs; since they who receive tithes from others gave tithes to him.
