For every high priest chosen from among men jis appointed to act on behalf of men kin relation to God, lto offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. mHe can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself nis beset with weakness. Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins ojust as he does for those of the people. And pno one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, qjust as Aaron was.

So also Christ rdid not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him,

s“You are my Son,

today I have begotten you”;

as he says also in another place,

t“You are a priest forever,

after the order of Melchizedek.”
