It occurs 19 times in Psalms. El Elyon is first used in Gen Meaning and Derivation: El is another name that is translated as "God" and can be used in conjunction with other words to deate various aspects of God's character. Elyon literally means "Most High" and is used both adjectivally and substantivally throughout the Old Testament. It expresses the extreme sovereignty and majesty of God and His highest preeminence.
When the two words are combined…El Elyon …it can be translated as "the most exalted God. Observe the titles he here gives to God, which are very glorious. The most high God, which bespeaks his absolute perfections in himself and his sovereign dominion over all the creatures he is King of kings. Note, It will greatly help both our faith and our reverence in prayer to eye God as the most high God, and to call him so.
Possessor of heaven and earth, that is, rightful owner, and sovereign Lord, of all the creatures, because he made them. This bespeaks him a great God, and greatly to be praised Psalmand those a happy people who have an interest in his favour and love. He blessed God for Abram Genesis : and blessed be the most high God. Note, In all our prayers, we must praise God, and hallelujahs with all our hosannahs.
These are the spiritual sacrifices we must offer up daily, and upon particular occasions. God, as the most high God, must have the glory of all our victories, Exodus ,1 Samuel ,12 Judges ,2,2 Chronicles In them he shows himself higher than our enemies Exodusand higher than we for without him we could do nothing. We ought to give thanks for others' mercies as for our own, triumphing with those that triumph. Jesus Christ, our great high priest, is the Mediator both of our prayers and praises, and not only offers up ours, but his own for us. See Luke What was done to him: Abram gave him tithes of all, that is, of the spoils, Hebrews This may be looked upon, As a gratuity presented to Melchizedek, by way of return for his tokens of respect.
Note, Those that receive kindness should show kindness. Gratitude is one of nature's laws. As an offering vowed and dedicated to the most high God, and therefore put into the hands of Melchizedek his priest.
Note, When we have received some al mercy from God, it is very fit that we should express our thankfulness by some special act of pious charity. God must always have his dues out of our substance, especially when, by any particular providence, he has either preserved or increased it to us. That the tenth of our increase is a very fit proportion to be set apart for the honour of God and the service of his sanctuary. That Jesus Christ, our great Melchizedek, is to have homage done him, and to be humbly acknowledged by every one of us as our king and priest and not only the tithe of all, but all we have, must be surrendered and given up to him.
