Where is Melchisedek in the Bible?

Old Testament

Genesis 14:18 (KJV)  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

 

Psalm 110:4  The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.  (KJV)

 

Hebrews 5:5   So also Christ didn’t glorify himself to be made a high priest, but it was he who said to him,

“You are my Son.
Today I have become your father.”

6 As he says also in another place,

“You are a priest forever,
after the order of Melchizedek.”

7 He, in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and petitions with strong crying and tears to him who was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear, 8 though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered. 9 Having been made perfect, he became to all of those who obey him the author of eternal salvation, 10 named by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.

 

Hebrews 6:20  where as a forerunner Jesus entered for us, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
