Why Is God Called "the Most High"?

Genesis 14:18-20 - “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.) And he blessed him and said, ‘Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!’”

Shirley is correct! There were multiple names associated with the various attributes of God, The Most High being one of those.

The below explanation, along with other names, can be found at:

https://www.gotquestions.org/names-of-God.html

"EL ELYON [el-el-yohn]: “Most High" (Deuteronomy 26:19) – derived from the Hebrew root for “go up” or “ascend,” so the implication is of that which is the very highest. El Elyon denotes exaltation and speaks of absolute right to lordship."
