A Priest Forever

eSo also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him:

f“You are My Son,

Today I have begotten You.”

As He also says in another place:

g“You are a priest forever

According to the order of Melchizedek”;

who, in the days of His flesh, when He had hoffered up prayers and supplications, iwith vehement cries and tears to Him jwho was able to save Him from death, and was heard kbecause of His godly fear, though He was a Son, yet He learned lobedience by the things which He suffered. And mhaving been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, 10 called by God as High Priest naccording to the order of Melchizedek,” 11 of whom owe have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become pdull of hearing.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
