Hebrews 5

For every high priest, who is from among men, is established over the things of God, in behalf of men, that he may present the offering and the sacrifices for sin: and he can humble himself, and sympathize with the ignorant and the erring, because he also is clothed with infirmity. And, therefore, he is obliged as for the people, so also for himself, to present an offering for his sins. And no one taketh this honor on himself, but he who is called of God, as Aaron was. So also the Messiah did not exalt himself to become a High Priest; but He appointed him who said to him, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. As he said also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, after the likeness of Melchisedec. Likewise, when he was clothed in flesh, he presented supplication and entreaty with intense invocation, and with tears, to him who was able to resuscitate him from death; and he was heard. And though he was a son, yet, from the fear and the sufferings he endured, he learned obedience. And thus he was perfected and became the cause of eternal life to all them who obey him. 10 And he was named of God, the High Priest after the likeness of Melchisedec. 11 Now, concerning this person, Melchisedec, we have much discourse, which we might utter; but it is difficult to explain it, because ye are infirm in your hearing. 12 For ye ought to be teachers, seeing ye have been long in the doctrine. But now ye need to learn again the first lines of the commencement of the oracles of God: and ye have need of milk, and not of strong food. 13 For every one whose food is milk, is unversed in the language of righteousness, because he is a child. 14 But strong food belongeth to the mature who, being investigators, have trained their faculties to discriminate good and evil.
