Passage: Alma 9:66 - Alma 10:13
66 "Therefore they, having chosen good and exercising exceeding great faith, are called with a holy calling, Yea, with that holy calling which was prepared with, and according to, a preparatory redemption for such,
67 And thus they having been called to this holy calling on account of their faith- "While others would reject the Spirit of God on account of the hardness of their hearts and blindness of their minds, While, if it had not been for this, they might have had as great privilege as their brethren;
68 Or in fine, in the first place they were on the same standing with their brethren- "Thus this holy calling being prepared from the foundation of the world for such as would not harden their hearts, Being in and through the atonement of the Only Begotten Son which was prepared;
69 And thus being called by this holy calling and ordained unto the high priesthood of the holy order of God, to teach His commandments unto the children of men, that they also might enter into His rest,
70 This high priesthood being after the order of His Son, which order was from the foundation of the world,
71 Or in other words, being without beginning of days or end of years, being prepared from eternity to all eternity according to His foreknowledge of all things-
72 "Now they were ordained after this manner, being called with a holy calling and ordained with a holy ordinance, And taking upon themselves the high priesthood of the holy order, which calling and ordinance and high priesthood is without beginning or end.
73 "Thus they become high priests forever after the order of the Son of-the Only Begotten of-the Father, which is without beginning of days or end of years, which is full of grace, equity and truth. "And thus it is. Amen."
1 "Now as I said concerning the holy order, or this high priesthood, there were many which were ordained and became high priests of God;
2 And it was on account of the exceeding faith and repent- ance and their righteousness before God, they choosing to repent and work righteousness rather than to perish,
3 Therefore, they were called after this holy order and were sanctified, And their garments were washed white through the blood of the Lamb.
4 "Now they, after being sanctified by the Holy Ghost, having their garments made white, being pure and spotless before God, could not look upon sin save it were with abhorrence.
5 "And there were many, an exceeding great many, which were made pure and entered into the rest of the Lord their God.
6 "And now my brethren, I would that ye should humble yourselves before God and bring forth fruit meet for repentance, that ye may also enter into that rest;
7 Yea, humble yourselves even as the people in the days of Melchizedek, who was also a high priest after this same order which I have spoken, who also took upon him the high priesthood forever;
8 And it was this same Melchizedek to whom Abraham paid tithes, Yea, even our father Abraham paid tithes of one tenth part of all 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 Melchizedek 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 Melchizedek, 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 Melchizedek did establish peace in the land in his days,
