Chapter 5

1

 

  For every high priest taken from amongst men is established for men in things relating to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins;  

 

 


2

 

  being able to exercise forbearance towards the ignorant and erring, since he himself also is clothed with infirmity;  

 

 


3

 

  and, on account of this [infirmity], he ought, even as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.  

 

 


4

 

  And no one takes the honour to himself but [as] called by God, even as Aaron also.  

 

 


5

 

  Thus the Christ also has not glorified himself to be made a high priest; but he who had said to him, Thou art my Son, I have to-day begotten thee.  

 

 


6

 

  Even as also in another [place] he says, Thou [art] a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedec.  

 

 


7

 

  Who in the days of his flesh, having offered up both supplications and entreaties to him who was able to save him out of death, with strong crying and tears; (and having been heard because of his piety;)  

 

 


8

 

  though he were Son, he learned obedience from the things which he suffered;  

 

 


9

 

  and having been perfected, became to all them that obey him, author of eternal salvation;  

 

 


10

 

  addressed by God [as] high priest according to the order of Melchisedec.  

 

 


11

 

  Concerning whom we have much to say, and hard to be interpreted in speaking [of it], since ye are become dull in hearing.  

 

 


12

 

  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have again need that [one] should teach you what [are] the elements of the beginning of the oracles of God, and are become such as have need of milk, [and] not of solid food.  

 

 


13

 

  For every one that partakes of milk [is] unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe;  

 

 


14

 

  but solid food belongs to full-grown men, who, on account of habit, have their senses exercised for distinguishing both good and evil.
