The point of the passage: Jesus is a better priest than Melchizedek. The reason is that (1) Melchizedek died, and his priestly intercession therefore ended, and (2) Melchizedek could only have ministered under the Old Covenant, while Christ is the inaugurator and guarantor of a better covenant, which is capable of actually giving life, which the covenant Melchizedek was under could not do!

Εἰ μὲν οὖν τελείωσις διὰ τῆς Λευειτικῆς ἱερωσύνης ἦν, ὁ λαὸς γὰρ ἐπ’ αὐτῆς νενομοθέτηται,
Now if perfection had been attainable through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law),
τίς ἔτι χρεία κατὰ τὴν τάξιν
what further need would there have been for another priest to arise
Μελχισεδὲκ ἕτερον ἀνίστασθαι ἱερέα
after the order of Melchizedek,
actionmanner
conditional
καὶ οὐ κατὰ τὴν τάξιν Ἀαρὼν λέγεσθαι;
rather than one named after the order of Aaron?
μετατιθεμένης γὰρ τῆς ἱερωσύνης
For when there is a change in the priesthood,
ἐξ ἀνάγκης καὶ νόμου μετάθεσις γίνεται.
there is necessarily a change in the law as well.
alternative
ground
ἐφ’ ὃν γὰρ λέγεται ταῦτα φυλῆς ἑτέρας μετέσχηκεν,
For the one of whom these things are spoken belonged to another tribe,
ἀφ’ ἧς οὐδεὶς προσέσχηκεν τῷ θυσιαστηρίῳ·
from which no one has ever served at the altar.
πρόδηλον γὰρ ὅτι ἐξ Ἰούδα ἀνατέταλκεν ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν,
For it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah,
εἰς ἣν φυλὴν περὶ ἱερέων οὐδὲν Μωϋσῆς ἐλάλησεν.
and in connection with that tribe Moses said nothing about priests.

καὶ περισσότερον ἔτι κατάδηλόν
This becomes even more evident
ἐστιν, εἰ κατὰ τὴν ὁμοιότητα Μελχισέδεκ ἀνίσταται ἱερεὺς ἕτερος,
when another priest arises in the likeness of Melchizedek,
ὃς οὐ κατὰ νόμον
who has become a priest,
ἐντολῆς σαρκίνης γέγονεν
not on the basis of a legal requirement concerning bodily descent,
ἀλλὰ κατὰ δύναμιν ζωῆς ἀκαταλύτου,
but by the power of an indestructible life.

μαρτυρεῖται γὰρ ὅτι σὺ ἱερεὺς εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα κατὰ τὴν τάξιν Μελχισέδεκ.
For it is witnessed of him, "You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek."
situationresponse
Ἀθέτησις μὲν γὰρ γίνεται προαγούσης ἐντολῆς διὰ τὸ αὐτῆς ἀσθενὲς καὶ ἀνωφελές,
For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness
οὐδὲν γὰρ ἐτελείωσεν ὁ νόμος,
(for the law made nothing perfect);
ἐπεισαγωγὴ δὲ κρείττονος ἐλπίδος,
but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced,
δι’ ἧς ἐγγίζομεν τῷ θεῷ.
through which we draw near to God.
καὶ καθ’ ὅσον οὐ χωρὶς ὁρκωμοσίας,
And it was not without an oath.
οἱ μὲν γὰρ χωρὶς ὁρκωμοσίας εἰσὶν ἱερεῖς γεγονότες,
For those who formerly became priests were made such without an oath,
ὁ δὲ μετὰ ὁρκωμοσίας διὰ τοῦ λέγοντος πρὸς αὐτόν, ὤμοσεν κύριος, καὶ οὐ μεταμεληθήσεται, σὺ ἱερεὺς εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα·
but this one was made a priest with an oath by the one who said to him: "The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, 'You are a priest forever.'"
κατὰ τοσοῦτο καὶ κρείττονος διαθήκης γέγονεν ἔγγυος Ἰησοῦς.
This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant.
