Hebrews 5

The Perfect High Priest

1For every high priest a  taken from among men is appointed on behalf of men in b  things pertaining to God, in order to c  offer both gifts and sacrifices d  for sins; 2
Lit being able to
,
f  he can deal gently with the g  ignorant and h  misguided, since he himself also is
Or subject to weakness
,
j  beset with weakness;
3and because of it he is obligated to offer sacrifices k  for sins l  as for the people, so also for himself. 4And m  no one takes the honor to himself, but receives it when he is called by God, even n  as Aaron was.

5So also Christ o  did not glorify Himself so as to become a p  high priest, but He who q  said to Him, r  You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You”;

6just as He says also in another passage, s  You are a priest forever
According to t  the order of Melchizedek.”

7
I.e. during Christ’s earthly life
In the days of His flesh
Lit who having offered up
,
w  He offered up both prayers and supplications with x  loud crying and tears to the One y  able to save Him
Or out of
from death, and He
Lit having been heard
was heard because of His ab  piety.
8Although He was ac  a Son, He learned ad  obedience from the things which He suffered. 9And having been made ae  perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, 10being designated by God as af  a high priest according to ag  the order of Melchizedek.

11Concerning
Lit whom or which
him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.
12For though
Lit because of the time
by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you aj  the
Lit elements of the beginning
,
al  elementary principles of the am  oracles of God, and you have come to need an  milk and not solid food.
13For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an ao  infant. 14But solid food is for ap  the mature, who because of practice have their senses aq  trained to ar  discern good and evil.
