Duties of the Chief Priest1For every chief priest [2from among 3men 1being taken], [2for 3men 1is established] in the things for God, that he should offer both gift offerings and sacrifices for sin offerings; 2[2to moderate emotions 1being able] with the ones being ignorant and erring; since also he is encompassed with weakness. 3And on account of this he ought, as concerning the people, so also concerning himself to offer for sins. 4And not to himself does anyone take the honor, but the one being called by God, just as Aaron. 5Thus also the Christ did not glorify himself to become chief priest, but the one saying to him, [2my son 1You are], I today have engendered you.
Order of Melchisedek6As also in another place he says, You are a priest into the eon according to the order of Melchisedek. 7Who in the days of his flesh offered both supplications and earnest entreaties to the one being able to deliver him from death, with [2cry 1a strong] and [2tears 1having offered], and was listened to because of his veneration; 8though being a son, he learned [2from 3what 4he suffered 1obedience]. 9And having been perfected, he became [2the ones 3obeying 4him 1to all] the reason [2deliverance 1of eternal]; 10having been addressed by God as chief priest according to the order of Melchisedek. 11Concerning of whom [3is much 1our 2word] and difficult in interpretation to speak, since [2dull 1you have become] in the hearings. 12For though you ought to be teachers because of the time, again [2need 1you have] of one to teach you what are the elements of the beginning of the oracles of God; and you have become [2need 1having] of milk, and not of solid nourishment. 13For every one partaking of milk is inexperienced of the word of righteousness; [3an infant 1for 2he is]. 14[5for full grown 1But 4is 2solid 3nourishment], of the ones through the manner [2the 3senses 4exercised 1of having] for the distinction of both good and evil.
