The Blessings of the Fathers
This verse is astonishingly clear. The man writing under the name Abraham is a shalem, because he has had happiness (joy), peace, and rest. He has followed Righteousness behind the veil. He wants knowledge, instructions, and to keep the commandments. He wants to be a prince of peace, a title whose only other possessors in ancient scripture are Melchizedek and the Lord. He wants ordination in the higher order of temple priesthood.
