14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens—Jesus the Son of God—let us hold fast to the confession. a 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tested in every way as we are, b yet without sin. c 16 Therefore let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.
5 For every high priest taken from men is appointed in service d to God for the people, to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he is also subject to weakness. e 3 Because of this, he must make a sin offering for himself as well as for the people. f 4 No one takes this honor on himself; instead, a person is called by God, just as Aaron was. g 5 In the same way, the * Messiah did not exalt Himself to become a high priest, but the One who said to Him, You are My Son; today I have become Your Father, h i 6 also said in another passage, You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. j k
7 During His earthly life, l He offered prayers and appeals m with loud cries and tears n to the One who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. 8 Though He was God’s Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. o 9 After He was perfected, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him, 10 and He was declared by God a high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
