Passage: Alma 10:7 - Alma 10:17

7 Yea, humble yourselves even as the people in the days of Melchisedec, who was also a high priest after this same order which I have spoken, who also took upon him the high priesthood for ever.
8 And it was this same Melchisedec to whom Abraham paid tithes: yea, even our father Abraham paid tithes of one tenth part of all that he possessed.
9 Now these ordinances were given after this manner, that thereby the people might look forward on the Son of God, it being a type of his order, or it being his order;
10 And this, that they might look forward to him for a remission of their sins, that they might enter into the rest of the Lord.
11 Now this Melchisedec was a king over the land of Salem; and his people had waxed strong in iniquity and abominations; yea, they had all gone astray: they were full of all manner of wickedness;
12 But Melchisedec having exercised mighty faith, and received the office of the high priesthood, according to the holy order of God, did preach repentance unto his people.
13 And behold, they did repent; and Melchisedec did establish peace in the land in his days;
14 Therefore he was called the prince of peace, for he was the king of Salem; and he did reign under his father.
15 Now there were many before him, and also there were many afterwards, but none were greater; therefore of him they have more particularly made mention.
16 Now I need not rehearse the matter; what I have said, may suffice.
17 Behold, the scriptures are before you; if ye will wrest them it shall be to your own destruction.
