5 aFor every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men bin things pertaining to God, athat he may offer both cgifts and sacrifices dfor sins: 2 eWho ||can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is fcompassed with infirmity. 3 And by reason hereof he ought, gas for the people, so also for himself, to offer dfor sins. 4 And hno man itaketh this honour unto himself, but khe that is called of God, las was Aaron. 5 So also Christ mglorified not himself to be made nan high priest; but he that said unto him, oThou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. 6 As he saith also in another place, pThou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. 7 Who in the days of his flesh, qwhen he had offered up rprayers and supplications swith strong crying and ttears unto him that was able uto save him from death, and vwas heard ||in that he wfeared; 8 Though he were xa Son, yet ylearned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And zbeing made perfect, he became athe author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 10 Called of God ban high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
11 Of whom cwe have many things to say, and dhard to be uttered, seeing ye are edull of hearing. 12 For when ffor the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be gthe first hprinciples of ithe oracles of God; and care become such as have need of jmilk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth jmilk †is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is ka babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are ||of full age, even those who by reason ||of use have their senses lexercised mto ndiscern both good and evil.
